HI ponty,

I am a brand new member but I have visited the site many many times before. I just wanted to let you know that every single time that I had a thought about a build of any kind, you had already created the build and it was in the hall of fame. I just wanted to let you know that you inspire me to be a character builder and to keep it up. You are a genius man.
