    To quote of Montreal. :D

    Thanks for the week! I hope I can find one in print, I much prefer the dead tree format. I know it will take a bit of searching, from reading the comments on a previous post, but it would be very worth it, I think!

  2. Cyclopedia CAN be the Millennium Falcon.
    4e will always be an off the production line X-Wing.

    @benpop Good look with the dead tree hunt. Let me know if you find one :D

    @Dr Checkmate Amen to that.

    Man, you really love original DnD huh! :) You make me want to read this book for sure.

    For me, Original was forgotten after I discovered the 1e ADnD. Didn’t that happen to most players? Given that everyone refers to 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, it would seem that way. It seems that original kind of doesn’t “count”?

    I’m into 4th edition now, never played 3rd, so I’m lucky with that blissful ignorance; I can pretty much ignore all the current fanboy fighting! ;) If I was going to play an “old” version, I think would vote to go all the way back to original.

    Question: I remember a level limit on dwarves, elves, and halflings; did everyone just remove that with a house rule? Otherwise, why would anyone ever choose to play one of those classes?

    @Tom The Rules Cyclopedia contains optional rules which give Halflings, Dwarves and Elves a full 36 levels of advancement, and I’ve always allowed characters to use that if (and when) they reach high enough level.

    I think that 4e D&D is closer to 11th Edition D&D in reality :D

    Wulf, thanks for the week-long appraisal. Shortly after I read this I was given a copy that DM Mike had and it is my go-to game for my campaign I run for my grandson.

    I recently heard of a comment that Dave Areneson made, something about giving up his Rules Cyclopedia when they pry it from his cold, dead hands. My feelings exactly.
