Top 10 Troll Questions (from Random Wizard)

Questions posed here: http://randomwizard.blogspot.com/2013/07/top-ten-troll-questions-for-your-game.html

(1). Race (Elf, Dwarf, Halfling) as a class? Yes or no?
Yes, but they can have different professions.

(2). Do demi-humans have souls?

Yeah.

(3). Ascending or descending armor class?

Descending AC.

(4). Demi-human level limits?

Yeah, but only if you’re playing B/X and things cap out at level 14, when everyone should be kings and queens anyway.

(5). Should thief be a class?

Yeah, but maybe re-tooled as a ‘Specialist’ or ‘Professional’ type class, with more flexibility into where skill improvement is.

(6). Do characters get non-weapon skills?

This kind of goes into the ‘professions’ thing.

(7). Are magic-users more powerful than fighters (and, if yes, what level do they take the lead)?

It always depends on the situation. I did have a wizard once who could take even the best fighters in a fist fight.

(8). Do you use alignment languages?

Alignment laguages are stupid.

(9). XP for gold, or XP for objectives (thieves disarming traps, etc…)?

If thieves disarm traps, they usually get gold, so… Fighter gets gold from killing monster, thief gets gold from trapped chest, and XP averages out.

(10). Which is the best edition; ODD, Holmes, Moldvay, Mentzer, Rules Cyclopedia, 1E ADD, 2E ADD, 3E ADD, 4E ADD, Next ?

B/X.
