    [Planescape] So, why the Celts?

    So, I loved Planescape, and one of the reasons why is because they used so many deities and pantheons that weren't as well known in popular culture, or at least not western popular culture. The Finnish gods, the Celestial Bureaucracy, the gods of Japan and India ( though the latter strikes me as...

    [Let's Read] The Complete Book of Necromancers

    I figured I'd have a go at this let's read thing, something to engage my brain and typing. I make no warranty of how long I'll keep this up. Also, it's been ~20 years since I've played D&D (although I'm learning Pathfinder atm via a PbP), so I'll probaly forget the significance of some things. I...

    The world/mythology of the Complete Fighter (2E)

    I was rereading the Monstrous Manual the other day and thinking 'well the Cave Fisher has a Strength of 18/00 for the purpose of eating you, how does that work?". And then I thought, well, there's grabbing rules in The Complete Fighter, which actually came slightly later - the interesting thing...

    [2e] Challenges for a psionicist PC

    I'm starting up AD&D 2nd Edition again as a DM soon, and someone's playing a psionicist PC (specifically, a multi-class fighter/psionicist) with my blessing using the updated 2nd Edition psionics system with MAC and MTHAC0. I have a decent amount of experience with the system, enough to be...

    [Let's Read] AD&D 2e The Complete Ninja's Handbook

    Welcome to this Let's Read of The Complete Ninja's Handbook! The CNB is part of AD&D 2e Player's Handbook Rules Supplement series. The series itself is a mixed bag. Some books are amazing and I generally recommend them for every 2e campaign, some are mixed, and some are just terrible...

    Is This a Bad Sign?

    I have been thinking of running a 2E game and one of the players asked me "Is Skills and Powers" being used. My response was a cautious "yes" as he was asking about the class build options. Basically you can build a class variant I like but its not open slather build what you want.

    1st Ed AD&D vs 2nd Ed AD&D; PHB vs PHB; What do people prefer about 2E?

    I am a little put off by the background story of Gary Gygax being pushed out of TSR, and them letting someone else rewrite Gary's brainchild. But what do the fans of 2nd Edition like so much about that particular ruleset? I read that some people consider it to be the best D&D of all.

    In 1st & 2nd Edition AD&D, were the Spells in the PHB, or the DMG?

    I know that Magic Items were in the DMG, but I can't remember which book the Spells were in. I remember the DM being more in control of what was made available to the PCs, in AD&D.

    [AD&D 2nd Edition] Your house rules for Spelljammer

    In the interest of not getting lost in the mix of the great house rules thread, I'm in search of some good house rules for Spelljammer in AD&D 2nd Edition. My planned 3.5 campaign is in limbo and I'm thinking of porting over the idea of the campaign (rebuilding a navy) into Spelljammer, a...

    [AD&D 2e] opposition spell schools

    In reading through my 2e AD&D PHB, I was struck by how arbitrary some of the opposition spell schools are. Illusion and Necromancy are opposites? Divination and conjuring? If you were establishing which schools stood in opposition, how would you list them?

    I'm looking for something that, ideally, meets the following criteria: Nostalgic fun for people who played AD&D and also subsequent editions of the gameCan handle about 10 playersNot just a grind, also plenty of opportunity to roleplayLittle to no "Gygaxian" trap design (this is a tricky one, I...

    AD&D 2e => B/X

    I've been eyeballing some of the Campaign Sourcebooks for AD&D 2e. However, I prefer B/X. Has anyone converted the Sourcebooks to B/X? Or, more generally, has anyone converted 2e material to B/X? And if you have is it very hard? Thanks.

    [Let's Read] Jakandor (the whole trilogy)

    Welcome to my first Let's Read. Being the ambitious sort, I decided to go straight for doing an entire trilogy of products. So, what is Jakandor? Jakandor is a mini-campaign that was one of TSR's last products, printed in three books over the course of 1997-98. Its thematic premise was conflict...
