Please take the opportunity to read through the posts thusfar, and expound on your reactions to the various topics I’ve posted on in the last week and a half. My intention is to make a second pass on the various topics, and hopefully come up with a synthesis based on the feedback, and a more refined look at each of the topics.
Also, I am forced to wonder… Have my musings taken me beyond the very pale of D&D itself? No PC demi-humans, non-Vancian magic (well… sorta), a new combat system, no alignment, and so forth? Are the changes I’m pondering taking me outside the D&D umbrella, or can it stretch in the direction I’m moving? Bearing in mind that I’m just musing on these topics, and trying to suss out the depth underlying the common wisdom.
