The High Aldwin
I started B/X in 1978, the of course into AD&D 1E and BECMI within a year or so, then started a 1E/2E-hybrid (mostly 1E) in 1990 which I played until 2005, when I tried 3E for less than a year, then went back to the hybrid. Finally got into 5E about 4 years ago.I’mma guess 2e is either your favorite edition of the first you tried?
2E wasn't really my favorite edition, but the blend of 1E/2E I made was. I liked some of the systems/mechanics in 2E which simplified things from 1E, but kept classes, spells, magic items, and every thing else from 1E. Mostly 2E we used initiative and non-weapon proficiency slots. Once 2E started the splat-book run, I knew D&D was dying IMO then.
What I play now (5E with some house-rules) is a facsimile of what D&D used to be. BUT, I don't want this to become any sort of edition war thread so I'm leaving it at that.
