A Nice Little Quote That Says Tons About "Attitudes of Player Entitlement"

From this page of a discussion about AD&D on ENworld...

"...18/00- The wonderful gateway drug to bonus bloat. A beginning perhaps, to the insane notion that because it existed, every fighter had to have it or they might as well reroll. What is rubbish isn't the score itself, but the mentality that it helped inspire...."
- ExploderWizard
This is part of the reason I use the "roll 3d6 straight down" method for generating ability scores, your characters takes whatever fate or genetics gives them and they deal with it.

Funnily enough, some of the favorite pcs in our game are/were the ones with a deficient ability score or three...


  1. Amen to both the link and the truth in remembering those characters that rose above in spite of their lack of having superior stats. Straight 3d6 enables one to become a Hero the hard way, but it is a path with greater rewards in the end.

  2. One thing I don't miss in DnD is percentile Strength. What a horrible idea.

  3.
