Dicebreaker Article About OD&D Players


Today Matt Finch (of Uncle Matt's Blog) posted a link to this Dicebreaker article on OD&D: 


Meet the Original Dungeons & Dragons diehards still playing by '70s rules


I'm not familiar with Dicebreaker or the author Steven T. Wright, but the article is a decent primer/intro to OD&D for a modern D&D audience. Smartly, the author talked to Matt and Delta (of Delta's D&D Hotspot) and much of the article reads as a conversation with them. 

Nice to see general interest attention on OD&D, though sadly the article mentions Dragonsfoot but not the OD&D Discussion forumI left a comment thanking the author and providing a link there.

Meet the Original Dungeons & Dragons diehards still playing by '70s rules

Refusing to roll with the times. Most tabletop fans have thrown a rolled a d20 or two in their time - especially now, thanks to the unprecedented popularity of Dungeons & Dragons 5E - but we all have our own opinions about what edition of the RPG rules them all.

  1. He's putting everything prior to 3rd edition under the umbrella term OD&D. Which I guess sort of makes sense, since it was all still TSR and the differences were fairly minimal when compared to what came after. I made an account just to post a reply, it's waiting for approval from the "moderation team."

  2. Yeah, I don't do that.
