  1. This post is probably as good a place as any to ask, so I’ll ask something that’s bugged me for a long time.

    Why were thieves the class that demihumans could attain unlimited levels in? Did Gary Gygax ever give any rationale for this choice? It doesn’t quite mesh with the “specialties” of most of the demihumans as they’ve evolved in D&D through the years, with dwarves being great warriors, elves being great wizards, etc.

    As a side effect, I also note how demihumans in Gary Gygax-penned materials are often multiclassed, another odd quirk given how it’s humans that are portrayed as the “jack of all trades” race.
