    The OA Theory- When OD&D Became Second Edition

    So, I have a thought that's been percolating for a while, and it's gone from inchoate to half-baked status ... which means that it's time to share! Today, I unveil my OA Theory. Um, no, this isn't the theory about how interpretive dance can get us to parallel worlds. Instead, it is my grand...

    D&D as a Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland

    So this thread idea builds on a post by @Nagol in a different thread ... (also h/t @Elfcrusher and @Tony Vargas ) Specifically, the concept of D&D as post-apocalyptic wasteland. MAX MAD FOR THE WIN! THUNDERDOME! ahem. So, the original snipped that prompted this thread was an explanation...

    Survivor: ULTIMATE MAGIC ITEM SHOWDOWN, THROW DOWN!

    What is Greyhawk?

    So I thought I'd write a separate thread about the essence of Greyhawk, and what it means to me. A thread where people can discuss the essence of Greyhawk (whatever that might be) instead of complain about Dragonborn. I would start by saying that Forgotten Realms is a great default setting for...

    Frylock's Final(?) Post on the OGL

    So, Frylock has finished (?) his posts on the OGL and WoTC's perfidy here- https://gsllc.wordpress.com/2019/09/02/part-4-faq-fri-dnd-copyright-iplaw-ogl/ I had a final thought on the whole thing, but I wanted to give it a little breathing space. For prior thoughts, look here- Part A...

    What is the essence of D&D

    So I had a comment a while back discussing how the greatest strength of D&D, the very reason why D&D is the "Big Tent" RPG, is because it is a continuing dialogue between the past and the future; that "D&D" (construed as the various editions of D&D, the various OSR clones of D&D, and even PF)...

    Resources?

    So, as I explore the new space, I attempted to open the sole "resource" that appears to be uploaded (by @qstor ) - A1 conversion notes. It gives an error when I try to open it. FYI.

    Ignore?

    So I should ask - is the ignore feature the same on this platform? I know there's one difference already- if someone quotes an ignored person, you can see that there is blocked text quoted and you have the option of viewing it. But is it otherwise the same? For example, are ignored people...

    Music and D&D

    So, I was thinking about music, and D&D, and how sometimes music is indelibly associated with a particular time and event. And I was wondering if anyone else had this- when they read a particular module, or rulebook, a particular song came to mind? Or, perhaps, if they heard a song, that a...

    OSR OSR ... Feel the Love! Why People Like The Old School

    So ... based on another thread, I had to ask myself, "Self, why do people go back and play OSR, retroclones, B/X, and 1e? I mean, given the sheer number of posts stating that these rules are objectively trash, people would have to be crazy AND stupid to play them, right?" Well, unfortunately...

    Old Timey CRPGs ... FOR THE WIN!

    So I wanted to tie this into some bigger point about RPGs in general, but ... meh. Too much effort. Instead, I just wanted to post a thread so people could discuss, if they chose to, some of the wonderful CRPGs that really kick-started the genre. What am I thinking about? Well, here we go...

    POLL: What edition of D&D did you most recently play/run?

    So, since the great enworld Board Co-Mingling, I've been seeing a lot of cross-talk about various editions, and I naturally thought to myself, "Self, why do you talk to yourself like this?" And then, after that I began to wonder what editions people were actually playing today (as opposed to...

    Legion, Season 3

    So, I finally had time to watch the Legion, Season 3 Premiere. So very very good (especially because I had just being NG: Evangelion!). Given the general makeup of these boards, I will say this- If you have seen Legion, and you have liked it, then what are you waiting for? If you have seen...

    Why Rules Lawyering Is a Negative Term

    So, I saw the following on another thread, in response to a comment that "rule lawyers have the reputation they do." "Oh, and a side note to this: Yes, and people hate real lawyers, until they're on their side. Funny how that works, isn't it? People don't hate rules lawyers, they just hate...

    1E On the Origins of Classes (1e, OD&D)

    Hola! So, one of the things I like to look into is the history of the game. And I'm always curious about the current state of research and/or received wisdom about the classes in D&D- where they came from, how we have the archetypes that we have, and so on. So I thought I'd start a post for...
