You know that they didn't know how medicine, sickness, and infection worked in medieval times, right? They believed it was all the work of evil miasma spirits.

Going to a doctor and getting "medicine" was more likely to make your ailments worse instead of healing you. Barber-surgeons fucked up your body with one botched surgery after another. Plague doctors knew jack shit about the Black Death.

Yet they still got a few things right. They knew that feces would infect a wound, so they covered their weapons in shit before a fight to cause infections.

You do portray this in your D&D games, right?

D&D Editions

No.80686175 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm in love with the Planescape and Dark Sun content from AD&D 2nd edition, but I've heard that 2E rules can be confusing. On the other hand, 3E was famously rule-heavy but seems to have been very popular.
Should I run 2E, or try to convert/use this stuff in another edition? I'm not concerned for myself so much as I am for players.
What do you feel are the pros and cons for different editions of D&D?

/osrg/ - Old School Renaissance General

No.80674659 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General, the thread dedicated to TSR-era D&D, derived systems, and compatible content.

Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal and mechanical fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as played in the game's first decade -- less emphasis on linear adventures and overarching meta-plots and a greater emphasis on player agency.

Please try to keep arguing to a minimum. Don't respond to bait/drama posts.
And as usual, try and keep it alive, or at least undead.

• Provide good, detailed references (pictures are better than verbal descriptions), so the artists know what you're looking for.
• If you have a WIP quote the Anchor Post, and attach the WIP so your Drawfag can find you.
• Do not reply to other deliveries with a request that the artist fill your request next, this is called 'piggybacking'.
• Do not make multiple requests in the same thread and do not serially request multiple characters after a delivery. Suggesting several concepts for artists to choose from counts as making multiple requests.
• If you're unsatisfied with your completed request, please wait at least one week before you re-request. If someone follows this rule, don't waste posts by complaining about it.
• Don't critique others' requests. If you don't like it, don't draw it.
• Ignore the bait for they don't deserve (You)'s
• Stay on topic

>Drawfags and Drawfags-to-be:
• Feel free to drop your tumblrs/websites/commission/etc information, but if you're dropping your commission info, please consider filling a request beforehand instead of just advertising.
