Confessions of a Jaded Geek: 7/30

What’s my favorite D&D edition?

Yow good question. If you were strictly looking for an answer that’s more or less recognizable as D&D, I’d say it’s the Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) retroclone, because of its treatment of magic.

Magic in DCC comes much closer to the way magic is portrayed in Sword and Sorcery classics such as Robert E. Howard’s Conan and Moorcock’s Elric series: dark, dangerous, very likely to exact some  grisly – or amusing -price from its practitioners.
