Of the two approaches to hobby games today, one is best defined as the realism-simulation school and the other as the game school. AD&D is assuredly an adherent of the latter school. It does not stress any realism (in the author's opinon an absurd effort at best considering the topic!). It does little to attempt to simulate anything either. (AD&D) is first and foremost a game for the fun and enjoyment of those who seek the use of imagination and creativity.... In all cases, however, the reader should understand that AD&D is designed to be an amusing and diverting pastime, something which an fill a few hours or consume endless days, as the participants desire, but in no case something to be taken too seriously. For fun, excitement and captivating fantasy, AD&D is unsurpassed.As a realistic simulation of things from the realm of make-believe or even as a reflection of midieval or ancient warfare or culture or society, it can be deemed only a dismal failure. Readers who seek the later must search elsewhere. - Gary Gygax. 1e DMG.

EDITION WAR ALERT!

This thread started on the brink of edition wars, but fell full throttle into it as of post #64. Everything after that is just same old, same old. Sadly, what has become a somewhat interesting thread was derailed by the usual suspects. I request we either delete everything after post #63 or close the thread.

The same usual suspect put this thread over the top too, as of post #62.

The title of the thread makes it pretty clear that an edition war is in progress:

When it starts to become clear that the usual suspects like to get threads closed by turning them into edition wars, why are we not bringing in those suspects for a lineup and seeing if we can't get them sent upstate on charges?

Seems like a pretty natural logical leap, right?

Ed_Warlord, on what it takes to make a thread work: I think for it to be really constructive, everyone would have to be honest with each other, and with themselves.

 

iserith: The game doesn't profess to be "just like our world." What it is just like is the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Any semblance to reality is purely coincidental.

 

Areleth: How does this help the problems we have with Fighters? Do you think that every time I thought I was playing D&D what I was actually doing was slamming my head in a car door and that if you just explain how to play without doing that then I'll finally enjoy the game?

 

TD: That's why they put me on the front of every book. This is the dungeon, and I am the dragon. A word of warning though: I'm totally not a level appropriate encounter.

Hey, Webster, I posted a blurb in the 3E slower than 4E thread, and I'd like to expand upon it here. I don't feel that the thread should be closed. It definitely doesn't belong in the GD forum, and I don't know where it does, but it is an interesting examination in the rules process and how and why mechanics work the way they do. So, in short, please move it but keep it alive.
I think it would be best if the topic of 4E combat and its speed be started as its own topic. But comparing editions is just asking for an edition war.

This thread appears to have been moved into Astrid's Parlor, and I'm having some difficulties figuring out why. It looks like maybe someone saw the word "girlfriend" in the title and assumed that's where it belonged. Reading the thread, it seems pretty clear that the OP is asking for help creating a campaign for a solo player; the gender of the player doesn't really matter at all for the discussion.

I don't believe Astrid's should become the catch-all place for any discussion that happens to involve a female, but I'm sure this was just an oversight

Looks like it should go to What's a DM to Do?.

I disagree. This thread is about sharing table stories, not specific to any edition. The OP's example is FR, but people are posting stories from various campaign worlds.

I don't think it does- but at the same time there's no plans for more FL as far as I know. However, having said that if someone wants to take up the task and post the requests, I'd be happy to process them.
