Roleplayer since 1997, starting with an AD&D 2nd Ed gnome, who owned a duck named Bob. It’s all about the plot for me, and power-gamers can go to Carceri. The old game systems weren’t perfect, but these new-fangled Pathfinders and 4th Eds and the like are really just player indulgence devices. In my day, you started out as a worthless scrub and damn well earned your XP before getting even one really cool ability. And we had to play outside, in 10 meters of snow, travelling uphill both ways, in the blazing sun, with only our wits to protect us from the lions and tigers and bears.
