Oh thank God, anon, you're finally awake! We were going to have to start the new D&D campaign without you! Huh?

Oh thank God, anon, you're finally awake! We were going to have to start the new D&D campaign without you!

Huh? 5e? Anon, apparently you hit your head pretty hard. D&D is on its 9th edition now. Is your character going to be a Fighting Man, a Magic User, a Thief, or a Cleric? Oh, you can be a Paladin if you roll good enough, sure.

Don't forget to write down your THAC0 and save versus magic!

      I don't know why, but this post reminded me that during ad&d I think you didn't had an "official sheet" and a lot of the home-made ones had this table where you put how much you needed on the dice for each ac...it was really weird

      I went back and red the 2ed handbooks just to gawk at weird rules like that, but wound up finding it overblown. These are easily understood by 12 year olds. Am I missing something?

        My theory is over who is doing what...nowadays the standard is the player calls, rolls and the dm makes the math and gives the result, I remember that back in the day a lot of times the player called, the dm gave the ac, the player made the math and gave the result
        So for players they went from doing math to doing nothing so it seems like there was a great improvement

          Players should do the math

            The DM must do all the math.

            Why does nobody want to DM this game??

              I think third edition sole purpose was to crush any dm aspiration so that "specialty classes" were the only way of adding something new to the game

          Asking "which number bigger" is not "doing math"

        It is just a weird roundabout way to go about it when you can just make it a simple addition which they did in 3e finally

          Thac0 is a better mechanic, but they present it wrong.
          The objectively correct method is
          Thac0 + roll + target’s AC >= 20 hits. That’s easier because it turns out brains add and compare faster than they subtract.

            why not just change it to
            >thac0 + roll >= AC hits
            and remove a pointless step
            yknow, like every wotc edition did?

      It's not a throwback, it's a world where D&D followed the edition pattern of most other RPGs (and Basic/AD&D/2e), with modest changes between editions, instead of being completely deranged and deleting every rule between editions and making up something completely different.

        So what, a world where the Blume brothers never got their paws on TSR's Market shares?

            I went from 3e from 2e and barely even noticed a difference. I know 4e give people crippling brain damage which probably didn't help.

              It's completely incompatible. The conversion guide was 20+ pages and often came down to "go check the new book and copy whatever the new replacement mechanic is."

                Me and my group would just use straight up 2e material with barely any changes. Why are you being a lying bitch?

                Like, what, lore?

                Skills/nonweapon proficiencies don't work the same. AC doesn't work the same. Ability score bonuses don't work the same. Monster hit dice don't work the same. Saving throws don't work the same.

                I mean, I'm happy you found it easy, but when you look at a character sheet in 2e and one in 3e, they are different in a way that a Hero System 6e and Hero System 1e character sheet are not.
