How can a Vorpal as sharp as Obsidian, bounce off the neck of an enemy, be prevented by Death, by a so called Spell and keep the, "head", from leaving the body, and we all just look the other way and say hey I guess the head magically stayed glued on?! by a spell that is vague when it comes to Vorpal Logic. Something so Sharp and rare that is a confirmed crit needs to be looked at again:
I. Did it bounce off? This is absurd.
1. A natural roll of 20 that is a Vorpal, a head cut off is blocked by Deathblock. Thiis is crazy In my opionon and we look the other way because the game says this is what happen. But what happened? The head was cut off and the Vorpal either bounced off or the person grew a new head.
Fighers epilogue: 'Deathblock prevents death, but the head somehow glued itself back on and the slashing weapon rolled a 20, confirmed it and missed? HuH! must rest from confusion.
Thesis: This spell called Deathward should not prevent Vorpals.
Question: Does this break the game and that is why Vorpals were dumbed down?
Fact: Vorpals used to be KING! Now they are mats that we pass/walk over in our reward lists and pick something else.
My opinion: Deathward is too powerful when it comes to stamping out vorpals, with a rubber stamp! This makes no sense as I stated.
Thank you for your time and for reading my opening statement.
