    Two rolls. One to determine where it lands, the other to attack all in the resultant burst.

    No, thatís the opposite of what I just said. :) It literally just does what it says in that paragraph ó to benefit from higher quality equipment, you need an appropriate skill. You canít benefit from an exceptional quality pistol without enough ranks in pistols. Same with armour.

    See Burst attacks on page 99. Area attacks use a single attack roll (in this case AGI (throwing) or similar) vs VITAL DEFENSE of all targets, and a single damage roll. Otherwise it is resolved just like any other attack roll.

    It's not like a car. It's much more subjective and much more of an art. You can directly and objectively measure a car's horsepower or weight, but you can't do that with an RPG. I don't think anything can substitute for actually trying the thing. All the graphs in the world won't give you a sense of how you feel when you play the game.

    Morrus started a thread Let's Talk About THAC0
    I feel like THAC0 gets a bad rap. It's the precursor to 3E's Base Attack Bonus, and came after 1E's attack matrices. It's actually super simple. The important thing to remember is that it's the exact same math, but in reverse. In 3E-5E, you roll d20 and add a bonus in order to beat the target's AC. In 1E-2E, you roll d20 in order to beat THAC0 minus AC. So instead of adding a number to...

    The 3E launch was definitely the most exciting D&D edition launch. The couple of years before that were the first launch that took place in the Internet era, and all the scoops and speculation were such fun. That magic was never recaptured ó I suspect it could only happen once. The second and third time arenít the same.
