Just occurred to me that a choice on this poll should have been "My hat of d02 know no limit"

edit: just ninja'd by @CleverNickName !
It was the worst of times,
it was the worst of times.

I really do hope that the next survey doesn't dissolve into a seething froth of hatred and bile, like so many Alka-Seltzer tablets of Awfulness. There are good aspects of every edition, and I hope we can keep the focus there, on the good stuff and good memories.

But, you know, Internet.

You're brave to test those waters.
I salute you!

Manual of the planes is a very good book for a broad number of reasons (planar handbook is good too but there is little overlap and although it updates some things in manual of the planes, manual of the planes is honestly just a better book. Not just because of knowledge of the planes it offers. Its the way its built too)

And the other one. UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME.

Libris mortis. I know it has problems, but it gives dms an awful lot of material they can work with to make their undead and certain types of dark magic better. It also has the knock on effect of showing how you can do the same in many other areas. Best used with restraint. And also care for possible ways it may screw around with things.

"Johnathan"? Were you signing off with that or is it a reference to something?

Addendum. I forgot. The list is a bit longer if i include other editions.

Not a whole lot longer. But a bit.

Libris Mortis is amazing. People can fight me on that one too. And I also loved Dungeonscape as a late 3.5 product. It had a lot of fun ideas for DMs. Plus I still love BoVD.

Everything's Fine
Oh man, there were so many houserules at the time. But my favorite is still E6. It covers so many problems with a single, easy rule.

Eh...not really. I mean, it's doing okay (more than 2/3 of its votes have been positive experiences*), but every other edition except OD&D has it beat.

OD&D: 61.0% <--- Lowest
AD&D 1E: 75.4%
Basic D&D: 88.4% <--- Highest
B/X: 78.8%
BECMI/RC: 80.8%
AD&D 2E: 80.0%
D&D 3E: 69.6%

*A positive response means that it got either a "remember liking it," "I like it," or a "I would like to try it" response.

EDIT: numbers updated as of today, 5:00 p.m. PST

Looking forward to the 4e poll. Assuming it will beat out OD&D for lowest. Personally, I like 4e, but I know the feels most have for it.

Yep, played & enjoyed 3x + PF.
Still playing them in fact, all blended together (admittedly it's long been PF1 as the core with whatever we need pulled from 3x).
ATM though we're giving PF2 a shot. But I'm sure we'll pick up 3x/PF1 again soon - just depends upon who's DMing & what system they feel like.
