I have just purchased the download version at Lulu. Based on James Maliszewski’s review I suspect it’s similar to what I’m trying to do with OD&D.
my efforts to make this blog more regular. I haven’t even gotten the attack chart written yet.
If all you can post about is a spelling error and you can’t even own that but do it anonymously expect to be deleted.
Last night my roommate popped The Scorpion King into the DVD player. I love it and think it’s one of the best movies to watch as inspiration for old school gaming. When I watch it I want to play some classic D&D right after. Most of the characters are warriors, Cassandra is a magic user as is Philos essentially (or a cleric) even if he uses items not spells, but how do you representArpid the Horse Thief.
The obvious answer is thief. Lots of old schoolers don’t want to use the thief. I get why. It is the first of the narrow classes instead of a broad archetype. I think Arpid is a perfect example of that. While he is a horse thief that’s profession not avocation. A warrior could be a horse thief. Nor do his skills match those of the D&D thief. He doesn’t hide in shadows or move quietly (Mathias, clearly a fighter, does those more) . He doesn’t pick pockets or scale walls. He does do one escape trick but the D&D thief doesn’t have “Houdini escape abilities”.
