Not to sure what has changed in the world of D&D since 1985. The last product I bought was the Rules Cyclopedia from TSR in the early 90's before Lorraine Williams ran it into the ground. After Unearthed Arcana and Oriental Adventures were released and Gygax left TSR in 1985 our group kind of stopped paying attention but word has been getting around WoTC seems to be trying again. Passed on 2nd ed and do not ask me my opinion on 3rd ed onwards although they at least threw Gary a bone after 2nd ed died and Lorraine wandered off to parts unknown. Several questions after spending a few days reading the forums.
1. How much AD&D is in D&DN? Is it aimed at AD&D players?
2. How much stupid stuff is in D&DN? An by stupid I mean things like Cavaliers, Drow, Deep Gnomes etc. If it was in UA or OA and involves ninjas or Drow I am not interested.
3. What in the abyss is a Warlord?
