I'm really liking the discussion thus far. I'd like it to continue. However, let me make a few points about the slate I'm currently debating.
I think it is safe to say that everyone would like either Mountaineer or Compoundeyes to stay (i.e. no putting in two completely new abilities). So, it is probably safe to make the first ability poll for those two abilities only. The poll afterwards would then consist of the original ability that lost and the top suggested abilities of this thread. Here is what I am thinking for our second ability poll:
Mountaineer / Compoundeyes (whichever one loses the first ability poll)
No Secondary Ability
I'm not completely set on this list, so I'd like discussion to continue to take place. Note that whichever ability won the first poll would still retain its place as primary or secondary ability. For example, if Mountaineer won, it would be Syclant's secondary ability. Does that make sense? If you need clarification, speak up.
Continue the discussion! I just wanted to let you all know what I'm thinking in terms of polls. Some of the regular CAP polls take weeks to discuss and vote on abilities. While I'd like to be thorough, I also wish to make the process simplistic. Note that this also means that this would be our last ability discussion for Syclar. Sound good?
