    That’s the one. Those two games are based on the 2nd edition rules. They don’t make games like that anymore …. *stares off into space with a wistful look on his face*

    I can’t tell you how nostalgic this session made me feel. AD&D was my intro to roleplaying – good times!

    I’m glad to hear the Texans run Night Below, couldn’t convince a friend recently to run it as I learn AD&D again.

    A return to 2e gaming, awesome! THAC0 was my favorite game mechanic of all time…mostly because there’s always someone that can’t seem to get the addition by subtraction down.

    Oh my lord!

    This is the very first adventure I played with a regular group so many years ago…

    Thank you for sparking these warm and fuzzy memories in my brain.

    Great podcast. I’ve been listening to the podcast on the subway to work and it reminded me back when I played 2nd edition in the 90’s (I currently run Hackmaster so I am not that rusty with the rules). I had forgotten that the 2nd edition PHB never directly stated the second flavor of True Neutral, someone who was unaligned with either Good, Evil, Law, or Chaos, just simply self-centered or dedicated to something neutral to ethos or morality, like Magic. I would have suggested that alignment to the player who wanted to a self-centered mercenary type character.

    Nah, self centered is definately chaotic neutral.

    I believe I just heard Chaotic Neutral referred to as the “axe murder’s alignment” by Hal 😯 .

    I’m looking forward to hearing more ADnD, but it seems like they really improved on the alignment descriptions in 3.0 & 3.5. I for one enjoyed having some characters (mine or otherwise) start out as the “non-aligned” flavor of Neutral, and then just shifting alignments as the characters’ personalities got built up.

    The 3rd ed alignment descriptions are a lot closer to the 1st ed ones than the 2nd ed ones were.

    Alignment is one of those things that roleplayers eventually grow out of. Here we see one of the reasons why: Chris plays his character with a certain unique outlook on life and morality, and everyone on teh interwebs argues over which of the nine pidgeonholes it fits into. 🙂
