  1. Character creation looks fun and, most important of all, QUICK in these rules. I remember the good old days where all of us used to whip up characters in a flash so we could have some in reserves waiting to take over when our current character bit the dust.


  2. So… I guess the druid was too complex a class to keep in any form?

    Simple D&D feels lacking without Druids, and I am disappointed it isn’t there. More, by not having the Druid it means you can’t also have the Ranger by perhaps multiclassing Fighter/Druid


  3. Thanks for such assurance, also again the quick reply! ^^

    Also, sorry for the typos I made before… I didn’t notice them until after I posted.

    One more questions I have is whether or not there is any chance this might be expanded to account for players and DMs who want to go beyond level 5, perhaps up to 10? I noticed oddly that Experience and Leveling only go up to level 5, and I offer consideration that one could perhaps still keep the game ‘simple’ while allowing for a bit more ‘oomph’ when it comes to leveling and classes.

    More, from the perspective of D&D class balance it isn’t until after level 10 that classes begin growing uneven with casters out pacing martials and abilities/spells begin really getting complex.


  4. Thomas, what’s to stop you – or anyone – from creating a druid, ranger, or lumberjack class? That’s how the original D&D classes originated: we made them up! (Don’t ask about my wife’s half-orc flowersmeller class from 1976!)


      • Honestly I would probably go with the Beguiler (Wizard/Griefer) class if given the chance… though it is admittingly a concept somewhat limited by the lack of illusion spells, at least I feel such It would work, the class being charmers and deceivers, a very social class to say the least..

        I would still like ask for something of a Druid class after the Cleric and Wizard, with the first thing tossed being Wild Shape. Perhaps a simplified Animal COmpanion could be considered? I just feel the classes are not complete without the concept of a Druid,and through such, when mixed with a fighter , the Ranger.
