Re: The error that changed the face of Dungeons & Dragons...

I don't think this changed the face of game at all, Twas just one of so many confusing or conflicting rules, wording and or other poorly written descriptions of the game. Agreeing with Stephen (Trav) - ref to decide how to "play it out" ~ house ruling. It's what we did before we knew that we were ho...

Having some issues with photobucket since they want to charge money to host.

If the image says it's unavailable, click on it and then it should take you to photobucket.

Re: Ethereal Plane

"Weapons need to be +1 or better to hit... cool... "

Not quite, Capt. Weapons need to be magical. So, a +1 expert sword would not hit, whereas a magical sword (with or without a to hit bonus) would hit.

Re: Lejendary Adventure, skill bundles, books

Shadows is a great module. I ran it for my group some years ago.

For beginners, though ~ I'll recommend The Rising Knight from the Trolls. First in an excellent series of modules.

Well written and fun to CK, my players really enjoyed it.
