AD&D Style House Rules for 3.X/Pathfinder
I played and enjoyed Third Edition for several years, but over time, a realization grew on me: it didn’t play very much like the D&D I grew up with at all, and the source of almost every complaint I had about the system was the differences between it and AD&D. (The Paizo forums certainly helped me reach this conclusion, with their vocal disdain for D&D’s roots.)
So my overall goal with this project is to take the underlying structure of the d20 System and take what is good about WotC/Paizo D&D and build a much lighter oldschool system on top of it.
Some specific rules variants and design goals I’m looking to implement:
- Broader PC competence outside combat
- Simplified skill rules
- Simplified bookkeeping
- AD&D-style multiclassing
