Yeah. Someone sits down at the table with any character that has those kinds of stats we’d laugh and tell them to roll again at the table with everyone watching.
Note. I never said this.
Are you serious that you never had a fighter with a 14 or 15 Dex? Because that’s all you needed for AC bonuses.
Look I get that everyone seemed to play with characters whose highest stat was 12, but that’s not us. Hell look at the pre-gens in the modules. Those kinds of stats were common as dirt.
I mean really, a fighter with 17,10,9,15,16,12 for stats would raise eyebrows?
