Re: When D&D lost its soul

For me, the trouble became obvious when I ran across the words: "Take a level of." As in "Then my third level Sorcerer will take a level of Ranger." In my mind, becoming a sorcerer or a ranger is something that takes years of training. You don't just arbitrarily become a ranger f...

Re: PC's training NPC's??

I think it is important to bear in mind that in the old school of AD&D there was a strong focus on relieving the PCs of excess wealth. Paying for training was one way to do that. Making them pay for training was one way of doing that. So it may not be appropriate for a PC to be paid anything clo...

Re: Flash Games (totally OT)

Been a while since I've posted anything in this thread, but there are a few more flash games that I've been playing here and there (by which I mean pretty much daily, for just a few minutes, anyway). Robots Initiate Work Sequence - This is a time and resource management game. You are given a list of...

How new is your DVD player? I had to go buy a new one when I bought my first HDTV.

Okay, the McDeath account is now associated with the email address: banemcdeath@gmail.com.

MP3 music/We live in the future

I bought a new car a few months back (well, new to me, anyway. It's a 2014). My last car was a 2000. It had a cassette deck and a CD player, which was advanced for the time, but nowadays, not so much. So I realize that I am somewhat behind the curb when it comes to digital music, but bear with me. T...

Re: No, seriously, which edition is better? 1E or 2E?

I actually prefer the Second Edition version of bards, too. In terms of character development, I don't really see how someone would devote their life to being a warrior, then suddenly give that up to become a thief for a while, then give that up to become a musician. Better to be that multi-talented...

Re: No, seriously, which edition is better? 1E or 2E?

It's kind of a moot point The game is intended to be customized. If you like things from First Edition, carry them over into your Second Edition game.

Re: Cleric vs. Cleric - Party Discord?

PCs of vastly different alignments can form a functional party, and in doing so can create some enjoyable opportunities for roleplaying.
But having players who deliberately choose PC clerics that will antagonize each other, is probably more much trouble than it's worth.

If by some odd chance you want to watch eight hours of armored fighters beating each other up, singly and in groups, look no farther:

Moving in Armor

Everyone knows that plate armor = encumbrance.
It's like having cinder blocks strapped to your torso, arms and legs, right?
Actually, no.
