...and neither will some flimsy claim of "OMG I RED IT ON TEH DEVS BLOG LOLOL"
Just my .02 credits
Well you can insinuate that I'm a liar all you want to. But there's absolutely no reason for me to do so. I don't get paid for posting here, nor do I win magical +1 Internetz. If you doubt me, as you indicate you do, see if you can find Daniel Erickson's "Designing the Bounty Hunter" blog from sometime in 2009 I think.
Or just keep saying "ZOMG I KIN LIST NPCZ TROLLOLOLOLOL" and see how many +1 Internetz you get from that.
