“Submachine Gun: The Submachine-Gunning”
As Dave and Yanni prepare to go off to Indy for GenCon, we’re tossing out a relatively short round-table with three of our hosts. In this episode, we talk about D&D Next, then about skill and magic systems in role-playing games in general. We come to the following conclusions:
- We like skill systems that let heroic characters do stuff
- We like magic systems that are open-ended, not ones that make you pick from pre-generated lists of spells
Also, at one point, Dave refers to “Old School Revolution” – it’s actually “Old School Renaissance” [Sorry. –Ed].
