2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons
« on: November 04, 2005, 04:20:23 PM »
I have been thinking of running a game, probably one of the many modules produced for TSR's Dungeons and Dragons game system.  I do not have a lot of experieince DMing, but the only way to learn is to do, so I wanted to see if anyone would be interested?

Alignments would be any good, races and classes as per the PHB.  All In-Game dice rolls would be made by me, either actually rolling the dice, or using a dice server like Irony.  The only 'dice' you would need to 'roll' are for character creation (using a dice server like Irony).  I'd need to look through the source books I have for 2nd Ed to see what would be allowed.

I would probably like to place it in one of the lighter boards, with sex as a secondary thing, not primary.  If this sounds like something you would be interested in, post here, pm me, or email me (if email, make sure you put somethingin the subject line that I recognize so it doesn't end up in my junk folder  ;D.

Only thing I specialize in the 2nd Edition AD&D is Planescape. As for the regular format. I'm not good with it a lick.

I could go for it.  Personally I prefer 3e, but I know AD&D well enough to play.

I know, what Valkos wants to play is 2nd Edition AD&D, all I said was the only AD&D 2nd Edition game I'm familiar with is Planescape.

I was in the playtest groups for the 2nd Edition and I'd LOVE to play. Would you allow Priests from the Priests Handbook I wouldn't mind a Fighter/Priest (maybe serving the Philosophy of Good or a more Martial Diety) whose a Half-Orc. I don't like the PHB Cleric its more realistic to have specialized clergies with different aspects. Some are softer and some more war like and can use swords and the like. But get fewer spell spheres so balances out. I just don't like the Cleric as is are too broad in power.

I too do not like the generic clerics as described in the PHB.  A cleric should have a dedicated god/godess, so I will accept any from Faiths and Avatars, Demihuman Deities, Powers and Pantheons, and Forgotten Realms Adventures.  I might also accept the deities listed in the 1st Edition Deities and Demigods, though Major and Minor spheres would need som work.  For spells, I would also accept those listed in Tome of Magic, and Spells and Magic (but not the Players' Options rules listed within).

I will try to have a complete list of the books I have and what I will accept tomorrow, hopefully by suppertime.

Ooh!  Ooh!  Ooh!  Unless you mean to have more than one plot post a day, I'm in.  Sign me up for either an Forgoten Realms speciality priest or a Complete Book of Elves Bladesinger... 

Probably the first.

Well, I do not have electronic versions of the books, so if you wanted to play a spellcaster, that could be a problem.  However, if you were thinking of playing a non-spell caster, it shouldn't be a problem.

I was replying to doing the Forgotten Realms game. As for AD&D, I have Planescape. It's basically AD&D, but with Planescape being the Campaign Setting.

Just as note I have a 3.5 Ed Forgotten Realms game but it is not big jump from 3.0 to 3.5, just some skill changes and change in some spells ;).

True, but we're speaking of Second Edition here, and that is a big leap.  ^_^

2nd Edition AD&D is definately a large leap to 3.5 Edition D&D. Consider them two different games with similarities is all. AD&D is still, far most, one of the most complex pen and paper game out there.

Are the Baldurs Gate games also AD&D?

Yes, both Baldur's Gate games are 2nd Edition AD&D. Back then when Forgotten Realms was AD&D. As you can compair the two, there are simularities, but, still. There is a larger gap on things... And you know AD&D anything will in fact have three or four times more information in it then the D&D counterpart.

Also, curious as for mentioning Baldur's Gate. Ironically, just before coming back here to check the Forums I was playing Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn.

Well in many ways 2nd Edition is easier IMO. Anyway if I can if I qualify to do so be a Fighter/Priest (Philosophy of Good) thats a half-orc I'm in. Well a philosophy is just as good a source of power as a diety just I have to fight evil and promote good actively with this character, alignment will determine how that happens. I was thinking a pragmatic CG character, you know you can't save or stop all evil just pick the big quests and go after the most evil he or she can sort of character. Plus they should get along with all good faiths and beings as serving a philosophy is religious neutral.

I realize you're speaking only of your own opinion, but I'm curious as to what those ways are.

Well the biggest differences are the skills or Non-Weapon Proficiences are just a few major ones they kept it simpler over 3.0/3.5, I know for FIGHTERS and the like its easy too but when you get to Rogues it can be a bit much. The other is the FEAT system it can be rather complex in 2nd Edition you have a high dex and use the right weapons you can just fight two-handed and the like. A fighter doesn't have to worry about much more than later on specializing in a weapon if single classed. And if they wish to fight mounted taking Riding.

The basic combat system is not that hard just the rulebook could have been better written in areas.
