Episode 103: Save vs. Skill Systems

From the very beginning of Dungeons & Dragons, one of the biggest complaints about the game is a lack of a skills system. Love it or hate it, its one of those topics that is brought up regardless of edition or year. Not enough skills? Too many? We know DM Mike’s opinions, but on this episode the other two hosts get their turn.

Also the DMigos consider the latest module from Small Niche Games, “The Shrine of St. Aleena.” This homage to the Mentzer Basic D&D set gets the full treatment, with no cleric casualties this time. Honest!
