Re: WARNING: D&D 3.5 TALK: Demi-Lich vs Tarrasque

What I find interesting is how, whenever I hear DnD players talk about playing DnD, they seem to have this unspoken assumption that once 4th ed came out, they weren't allowed (somehow) to play 3.5,

Is that normal?

They discontinue old books, and get rid of the free downloads they have for the old system, which makes it near impossible to get new stuff to play, as Requia says.

They didn't just get rid of free downloads, they got rid of a lot of the merely low-cost/discounted downloads as well. it really pisses me off. That's why I now absolutely refuse to buy any new* Wizards Of The Coast products.

I think a lot of that stuff is still available via torrent. Might have to do some digging, but I'm sure people have archived that old content.

Such is the way of things though - It's like, Nintendo no longer sells the SNES, which is a shame, because I loved that system better than any other.

Indeed. The controller even actually worked as advertised, unlike their more recent products.

D&D pseudo-noob reporting for duty! (i did start on AD&D second edition, though i have not played nearly as much nor as hardcorely as you guys).

FWIW, i'll pitch in with the "don't like 4e" camp, as the only campaign i have ever played on it  (and ended up leaving halfway through because of the group itself, although that is not the games fault) i did not enjoy as much as the games i've played of 3/3.5/p.finder, let alone the ones with the original party i started with on 2nd edition.

sooooo.... there we have it. i think i'm the first on the thread to say i did not like 4e because i simply enjoyed the other editions more :) (and i still miss non-weapon proficiencies :p).

*cowers in fear from the mighty DnD powerhouses he just wandered between while awaiting judgement*

oh yeah, and demi-lich > tarrasque, but the tarrasque is a lot cooler.
