Adventure 157: The Myth of Old School Exceptionalism

Adventure 157: The Myth of Old School Exceptionalism

May 21, 2020 Off By Executive Producer Vincent

Jon Peterson joins the SODcasters for a conversation about the chase for the wild goose that is the quentesential old school experience. Was there ever a unified approach to the game? Or is the old school experience what you make of it! We’ll talk about our own experiences. What we percieve as old school. What the gameplay ideas of the time were. And adding 37 to die rolls. Also! We will argue about torches a little more so stay till the end!
