I inherited my passion for roleplaying games from my father. When I was in my teens, he Dungeon Mastered my first games.

It has struck all of us as being interesting to see the thoughts of people playing the same game over 30 years ago…. A lot of add&d he came up with would later become official rules THAC0 for instance much later after he first scribbled them down in the margins of his books.

The modified tables are now available as a pdf. The approximate doubling of XP allows elegant multiclassing rules, editioon the separate tables for each class allow interesting balancing.

They were poorly balanced, and mathematically, well, stupid. When the Druid hits level 12, the poor Paladin is still on level 8. Magic-Users also get it pretty easy for most of their career.

Paladins are still a bit behind they are pretty powerful in 1st Edbut not so bad. All by applying the concept of the XP tables doubling each level and actually doing it with some editioj of mathematical correctness.

In addition to a very favourable XP table, Druids got more spells, faster, than any other class. The Druid quirk at level 12 is because the druid XP table stops at 14, and the ediion try not to change final spell numbers, just initial acquisition levels.

By the 1st Edition rules, only Clerics get bonus spells for high Wis. Magic-Users and Illusionists get nothing. Neatly pencilled next to the bonus spell table is this sentence: Straight out of 4th Edition comes this house rule: But enterprising gamers worked this out long before 2nd Edition was ever published….

Fighters, for example, increase their combat ability by 1 point every level, instead of 2 sometimes and 0 others.

Wait, where have I heard that kind ediion progression before? We may as well face it though: THAC0, while easier than its predecessor, was kind of stupid too. A fix in the wrong way is still wrong. Except then it goes very 1st Edition: Apparently my dad was none too happy with the weapon restrictions on Clerics. While it was historically accurate to priests who donned armour in the Middle Ages, it is not necessarily sensible to apply that restriction to all clerics dmt of the gods they follow.


Evil Clerics were still restricted, but if you multiclassed to Fighter you were allowed to stab people with pointy objects. Anyway, this is yet another rule that was only truly expunged in 4th Edition, although 3rd Edition tried its best. The fact that my dad had critical hit rules was not surprising: What is interesting is the way they were implemented almost exactly mirrors 3rd Edition. It was 1t pretty standard house rule to remove rules about different ability score caps for male and female characters.

There is editiion much more than this.

The rulebooks are littered with pencilled annotations, and various notes apart from them add even more house rules. Just think about it: The Dice of Doom is a blog about gaming, being a gamer and general interest content suitable for nerds.
