The game essentially stopped for fighters at level 9. After that they would gain 2 hit points and improve their THAC0 and that was it.

Pretty much.

Here's the thing about running an army. You can't do jack **** with it. I mean, you can't take it into a dungeon, you can't really use it unless you're fighting a war, which, let's be honest, doesn't ****ing happen in Dungeons and Dragons. You might fight in a war, but you're not really sitting back in your castle, sending orders via runners because that's not fun. I guess you could use it as some kind of political clout, but I don't know.

It goes back to Gygax's complete misunderstanding of what people were actually going to do with his game.

A good kit would make them marginally better in some areas, but most of those are still he equivalent of a 3.x bonus feat.

The weapon style bonuses, grand mastery specialization etc. are like a more picky version of 4E's Fighter Weapon Talent and _____ Expertise.

Two people have dropped from today's game. We are down to two players. I need some people ASAP.

Dammit, I really want to play. So I can properly mock this abortion. Why'd they drop out?

I had an interview that went way too long and I'm honestly not feeling all that good anymore. I also can't get my copy to download either, but that's not really much of an issue as far as .pdfs go.

Game canceled. Shutting down the server. :/

Doesn't look like we missed much anyway.

I dropped because I got called in to work. Playing a nebulous version of D&D takes a back seat to my actual job.

I dont trust any of the tastes of people who were born with such good taste that they didnt need to find their way through trash.
