    I agree completely, and never said I didn't. I have never said that age alone *caused* XP. I have said that since the actual process of gaining XP generally takes years, if you know nothing about...

    They never took levels in Paladin or High King or whatever funky prestige class he did, and didn't amass as large a total amount of XP as he did, but they definitely did advance from Commoner 1 at...

    Strongly correlated is not the same thing as equals. You get experience from overcoming challenges. It takes time to do this, and there is intervening time in which there are no significant...

    I see it the other way around -- I have always assumed there was a natural correlation between experience and age, because that's what life has always been like. Why does a tribe look to its elders...

    It doesn't seem all that dark overall to me, but what seems to generate the most discussion here are the darker parts. I certainly don't eliminate every beacon of good -- I've still got Cuiraecen...

    But Arthur at age 10ish, when he pulled the sword from the stone, was much lower level than at age 20ish when he formed the round table, and continued to gain levels though adventuring until his fall...

    The point is that it would be nice to use a suitable variant of the D&D mechanics to help represent a world which does make sense. In such a world, level would be strongly correlated with age, since...

    Because no one's (un)dead. Yeah, the spell is surely a really nasty thing to do to someone, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with "raising or communicating with the dead," which is the only part...

    I don't see it that way. The problem is one of terminology. On one hand, there is necromancy the school, which in 2e includes all magic for healing and resurrecting, as well as a number of things...

    Hell no!



    Ah, well. That's a very different issue. Since "canon" can be confusing and often self-contradictory, we spend a lot of time talking about how certain parts of it should be improved...

    I think they spend other people's lives quite freely. Use charm magic to take over half the opposing army and have it fight the other half. No matter which side wins, every death on both sides is...

    I interpret it as asking, "can one take the warcards seriously?" That is, can you really spend 4 GB to muster a unit of 200 1st-level warrior elves who fight in ranks like humans, dwarves and orogs...
