Blog Post of Note: In Which Gygax Gets Disenchanted with Wandering Monsters

Delta's blog has a post today titled In Which Gygax Gets Disenchanted with Wandering Monsters. I'm not entirely certain Gygax was complaining about the rule, here, but clearly, he was changing it.

I may have some things to say about wandering monsters, because who knows? I might change things, too. But I think I'll save that for a future post.

  1. I'm sure to get my nerd card revoked for this heresy but Gygax was a bad rule writer and not a great rule designer. He was excellent at module/story design and prose writing, but sucked at technical, concise, clear, unambiguous rules. His rules are overengineered, overcomplex and do not balance playbility with simulation well.

    B/X is a better game than AD&D.
