I used to play Bubble Gum Crisis (table top), but the only guy I knew who actually had the manuals went off to college in another state. I can't find those books ANYWHERE.Originally posted by: xboxist
I play Shadowrun. Same general concepts (battle, magic, weapons, etc...) - just based in the future.
It's extremely hard finding anyone who will play (or even admit they're interested). I put up an ad looking for players, hopefully some nice, somewhat normal people will reply.Originally posted by: FFMCobalt
If you're reading the DM Guide, then you really shouldn't be playing as a player. There's way too many things in there that players really shouldn't know. Anyway, I have my monster manual and player's handbook behind me on the shelf and my dice in my desk. I haven't found someone who wants to play. The only people I can find are stupid 12 year olds who never actually get together because their mommies can't drive them to the party every week. Grr...
If someone around the PDX area wants to get together for a weekly game, I am ALL for it. Likewise, I used to play a game online too. This guy on IRC had a dice bot that rocked. It's really really fun that way!
Same here, I found to hard to get a group of player together, not to mention a decent DM. Computer based games are just as fun without all the time needed to set up a decent game.Originally posted by: Ime
It's been over ten years since I last played AD&D.
I still like to play computer games based on it though!
Yep. Thaco has been replaced with attack bonuses. Easier figure out. You basically compare your attack bonus to an enemies armor class and then add in your roll, subtracting any bonuses the enemy gets from skills or feats.Originally posted by: flamingelephant
heard some nerds talking at a movie once that they got rid of the THAC0 thing......... is that true?

Played every 2 weeks on Saturday with my friends for more than a year when I was in High School. Our dungeon master was pretty good. I was a elf ranger on level 7. Those days are long gone! Stopped playing cuz heard was satanic.
