Morkus from Orkus
That was very fun, but for me the best part of 3e was being able to envision almost any character concept and then achieve it mechanically through a combination of race/class/feats/skills/prestige classes. 5e doesn't even come close to that.3e was definitely the best version at capturing the idea of the "wizard power fantasy". With enough player planning, and enough in-game time and resources, you can do damn near anything. But not have the right buffs or contingency plans in place, and you can get vaporized in a turn by a similar level enemy. It rewarded planning and game mastery more than any other edition, which is its own type of fun.
