On Answering a Ten Question Troll Poll

Slacking a bit this week and to get myself back on track while I work on finishing my three half done posts. I will answer Random Wizards Trolly Troll's Top Ten Troll Questions for Your Game.

(1). Race (Elf, Dwarf, Halfling) as a class? Yes or no?

No, heretical I know. I have too many sub-races and background based on Races not being classes.

(2). Do demi-humans have souls?

Yes, but not human souls. Dwarves souls are hung amongst the stars and elves fade to the Feywild.

(3). Ascending or descending armor class?

Ascending. Sue me.

(4). Demi-human level limits?


(5). Should thief be a class?

Yes, roguish is a character personality, thief is a character class.

(6). Do characters get non-weapon skills?

No. Player skill. If you want to roll to do something roll 4d6 under your stats.

(7). Are magic-users more powerful than fighters (and, if yes, what level do they take the lead)?

Yes, but only after 6th level.

(8). Do you use alignment languages?

Yes. Even Mordor had the black speech.

(9). XP for gold, or XP for objectives (thieves disarming traps, etc...)?

XP for gold, bonus XP for playing to flaws, player voted MVP and most damage by inventive means

(10). Which is the best edition; ODD, Holmes, Moldvay, Mentzer, Rules Cyclopedia, 1E ADD, 2E ADD, 3E DD, 4E DD, Next ?

They all have there place and niche they fill. If I picked the most creative and complete edition of any game it would be Hackmaster 5E. Right now I want rules light, fast combat, exploration and out of the box problem solving so we are playing Sword and Sorcery.

Bonus Question: Unified XP level tables or individual XP level tables for each class?

Individual XP and death that resets to 1st level unless a protege is in play.
