    They hit harder? You really do sound retarded there, by the way.

    Edit:

    Also, there are no playable Orcs, so WTF are you talking about?

    what the tard took away points for, most people who enjoy AD&D would see as a bonus-- fairly complicated rules adaption. People like him whining are why we get decline shit.

    Amazing. Solasta has a lv cap = 10, not due balance cultism but due resources. Pure incline. Balance cultism is the worst plague of CRPG's. I would prefer new classes over higher lv cap. Mainly considering that we already have two games which allow high level gameplay this year and BG3 will be awful and only launch on one or two years.

    Game journos thinks that 5E is "overwhelming"... And I asked why GURPS has no CRPG adaptation some time ago.

    reading the review, the guy seems to literally not be aware that the game is a Dungeons and Dragons game, and not just LIKE a dungeons and dragons game..how do these people manage to have jobs and get paid to review games?

    They're going to add Sorcerers as a free DLC.

    Other than that... it depends on sales, I guess.

    well half-elf is a long time staple of AD&D, much more than having half-orc player characters, so I understand picking them over half-orcs. That being said I almost never play a pure elf, too gay. I will sometimes make a half-elf character.

    Just a typical caster. They can't cast fireball without getting sufficiently assblasted.

    Nah, fireball is not that great. Reincarnation is. A caster can transform you into a elf with it, or greater polymorth. Just imagine having the mindset of a male barbarian in the body of a female elf. Evocation is only for pyromaniacs. Alteration, Conjuration and Necromancy are awesome magical classes which 5e destroyed by nerfs.

    Yes. If you play games for the story, Solasta is probably not for you.

    Both half-elves and half-orcs were introduced as playable races in the first edition of AD&D, along with gnomes, but the second edition of AD&D removed half-orcs while keeping the other five demi-human races. The "unfortunate implications" behind the existence of half-orcs might already have been uncomfortable for TSR by 1989, and the plausibility of half-orcs might have been deemed too dependent on the particular setting rather than fitting into a more generic fantasy conception. :M

    Reminder people generally make review for the general populace not specific rpg audience so explaining to them that this game is ruleset heavy is legit way to review. He said "can be too challenging to newbies" it's th truth tbh

    Same. I might start this first i heard it's shorter. Likely a 30 hours ish campaign? Troubleshooter is 80+ hours and there are still story content being added.

    Every time I consider possibly actually starting Troubleshooter, they completed another update, so I figure I may as well wait.

    you are right. I had totally forgotten. I started playing AD&D in 1981 and this was the book I used to make characters of course and I totally did not remember them being there. But after looking in the book, and seeing the tables and charts I do recall them now. 1st edition is still my favorite. would be awesome to see a game be made in 1st edition, of course this will never happen outside of some rougelike or something.

    Discord: some retard just banned me for posting Dark Sun lore in general (not game) discussion.

    Guess, they hate Dark Sun setting for some reason.

    Discord Mods (Myzrym) really angry about other DnD settings.
    Just got ban for posting DS lore, when asked why Dark sun CRPG game is so cool.

    p.s. We didnt even discuss Solasta, just other games and setting like Eberron.

    Half orkz are stronger than humans and can be shock troopers in human society and smarter than orkz, so can lead the tribe. They have their unique niche in both. What half elf brings to the table compared to pure human or elf?
