    What is the essence of D&D

    It's pitched to kids, but it's great animation and it's surprisingly fun even for grownups. If you have Netflix, check out the first episode.

    Have Githzerai always been jerks?

    I've already got that person on ignore. I mean, you get in an argument with me? That's par for the course. If you're trolling Blue, you have serious trolling issues.

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    Heretic! You will burn! What, are you going to say that you also were fond of Crystal Pepsi and the musical stylings of John Tesh?

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    True that.* Still, Zebulon's + Knight Hawks = a really good system. Alpha Dawn alone doesn't cut it. *I have mixed emotions; the resolution system change wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible; just unnecessary. And the added options were completely necessary.

    Have Githzerai always been jerks?

    It's interesting, because I never really got around to answering the original question posed. I s'pose you could say that they are always jerks. I mean, they ARE CN. But the actual material in 1e didn't make them that jerk-y; it was vague enough (and they were interesting enough) that when I...

    What is the essence of D&D

    Not to mention that they'd be using the old version of the spell, and can only jump 30'!

    Worlds of Design: Chaotic Neutral is the Worst

    I think it is a real alignment, and it can work with some common ways of playing D&D, such as the mercenary or graverobber models. There are also fictional antecedents; such as Kerr Avon in Blake's 7. ...I think that the real issue is that there is a long and storied history, that most...

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    My biggest disappointment? That Zebulon's Guide to Frontier Space (A GREAT BOOK! Which goes to show that the TSR Cosmic Rift that destroyed D&D in 1985 DID NOT EXTEND TO STAR FRONTIERS!) was not written by David Cook.

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    Sorry. At the time of the release, it wasn't "Setting Specific." Read the forwards and introductions; it was about filling out the non-western sections. While there is a generic section about "Kara Tur" at the back (pp. 136 on), Kara Tur isn't placed in a camapaign setting until, what, three...

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    So, here's where I think we disagree. In my view, the OA classes were perfectly fine; either played in a separate campaign, or used as an addition to a standard 1e campaign. Much like a good 3PP (some of the classes in, say, the Compleat Adventurer) or a random regular Dragon "NPC" (Duellist...

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    I KNEW IT! I think we are moving from half-baked to AT LEAST three-fifths baked. WE ARE COOKING WITH GAS NOW!

    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    I'd disagree with that; again, IMO context is everything.* The actual play between the various classes and races was fairly well balanced, and it was very much an "OD&D" style book. *Again, not talking about the use of the term "oriental" or the appropriation of all cultures into a general...
