    I didn't read through the entire review but "ambidextrousness" is not a real word. Please use the correct form, ambidexterity.


    It's pretty disappointing to see an RPG fan use such a word as I am sure you spent a good part of your life distributing attribute points.

    But no, forget I complained, I can already see it. The future, that is. Next year, in a kickstarter MMO exclusive:

     Agileness

     Strongness

     Endureness

     Inteligencyness

     Wisdomhood



    Please also see:

    * Sensational spelling - deliberate misspelling for effect or impact
    * Satiric misspelling - deliberate misspelling for rhetoric purpose
    * Cacography - deliberate comic misspelling
    * Malapropism - Unintentional humorous misspeaking

    Language and grammar are not fixed concepts, but malleable materials used to impart meaning and intent, aside from purely factual data points.

    Or, to put it more bluntly: "care lol."

    Ah, I look at your signature: "a smither of words". I see it now, I see the truth. 

    This is not a simple grammar error, nor a spelling error. It's an American ploy to further the Republican agenda. First you start with Internet, a commonly used communication platform. You dominate it and twist the meaning of words. You start to hand out new words left and right in a truly ambidextrousnessful style, you start to smither them to your liking at the same time vilifying the older media and their harsher standards.

    You justify neologisms from journalists and suddenly justifying various "covfefes" from your leaders is no longer a stretch, it is actually evolution. Or a brilliant act of political creationism, for those of that belief.

    Words maybe don't shape what people think, but they shape how people think. Law after all is also just words, and words are prone to neologisms.  Once the leaders words are justified you won't wince when they start to dismantle the Supreme Court and restrict other institutions that safeguard the well being of both the citizens and the rule of law. Then the law follows the leaders rather than the leaders follow the law and you'll all be ready for the final justification. After all, it can't be our fault things start going down hill and the facade is collapsing, it must be their fault. And who are "they"? Your leaders will tell you who they are, who you should be angry at.

    Your leaders will once again find weapons of mass destruction. Maybe not in Iraq since twice justifying a failed card trick is a job beyond even the most skilled illusionists. This time maybe in North Korea or Syria. And once again the troops will march, the nation will mobilise, money will flow to armament manufacturers and young men and women will die abroad. Their blood spilt hopelessly trying to justify yet another war and yet another fortune built on the graves of those who believed they are just.
