It's 1d6 for everything.
I run 3 LBBs D&D.
I do massive dungeon crawls in the traditional way. No minis. Just verbal and imagination.
If all you look at is the damage value, you won't understand how OD&D is designed for abstraction and elegance. I did a big analysis of how OD&D...
I have no idea what anyone is saying. I play OD&D. :p
In my games inspiration isn't a die roll, it comes from caffeine.
Who is this Merc Marcer whipper snapper?
Where's my hearing aide?

Having watched hour upon hour of Dave Arneson videos, I will tell you that people take him way too literally. He is often being quite ironic. Gail Gaylord typed all of the drafts Arneson was sending to Gygax. Hence Arneson always saying " I never typed a word of D&D." It was a jab at Gary and...
The blow back on Årneson is what prompted our documentary. As we made it we had choices to make on how to present the story of RPG. Thus, Gygax is included in the film. We chose to remove drama. Yes, we mention it, but quite frankly, it is still like seeing two people you like get divorced and...

The more rules people fill their heads with the farther they get from the active...
I am looking forward to your return to Good Old U.S. of A. Wherever you decide to reside, i will make a point of coming to visit. So much stuff to speak about in terms of Game Design and Game Theory.
You might want to look at Minneapolis St. Paul because there is a lot of gaming there. The...
The core premise of the trial was that AD&D was derived from OD&D, thus Arneson was entitled to royalties from both works.
When I say derived, I mean plagiarized. The trial evidence presented by Arneson's lawyers was targeted at proving OD&D was the source, and it was very strong evidence too...
Most people like to ignore what Gary wrote about Arneson early on. If you look at early issues of the Dragon magazine you can see Gary using Blackmoor as an example of the longest running campaign.
You can read the foreword to Blackmoor supplement and Gary pretty much gushes about how brilliant...
