I remember when we first started playing AD&D, the DM was adamant about using the 'you roll it, you run it' mentality. You know what this leads to? Sir Wilhelm van Awesomeface, Paladin of Kord, and his retinue of brain-damaged midgets. You couldn't impale yourself on that kobold's sharp stick fast enough just for another chance at the dice. After a year of running that and nearly suffering a breakdown, the DM went slack on chargen. I was that fighter with 18/22 STR and 6 INT and played it like he was a grown version of the baby from Dinosaurs (that might date me, a little). I was happy though, it was the first time in that group I had a character with any stat over 14.

So, who did he shout while hitting people with objects? Not the *something*?

I could tell you he said something cool like "Not the Pally!" or "Not the Questgiver!" but, I was a kid. I just said "Not the Momma" completely out of context.

Lovely. Did you ever get the chance to use "That's a pretty good pan?"

Res'ing this thread because it's ridiculous. Anyone else want to be statted up?

Average in AD&D is. . . 10.

Average of 1d6 is 3.5, stats are 3d6, in order (oh god why?), so average of 3.5 x 3 or 10.5, rounded down, 10.  You're also over the 'Elite' NPC Array in 3.5!  :p

usually when we play dnd the dm just generates a list of numbers and gives them to us and we can apply them where we choose.  Typically the stats I got are average to what is given.

Mine does the same. Array of 18, 16, 16, 14, 12, 10. Fun times.

Considering my link with the church, I think I'll go the cleric route.

I'm surprised at some of the people's stats - you guys must be adonises!

I still run an AD&D 2nd ed game, and I love the fact that things are framed in.  AC is from 10 to -10.  Stats go up to 25 (I think some books had 30), rather than the upward spiral of stats and AC in 3E.  Plus the fact that you have minimum stat requirements makes characters like paladins extremely rare, and so you treasure them.  One of the characters in my current game rolled three 14s and three 15s - that's an awesome character.  Another rolled a bunch of 8s, 9s and 10s, but a 16, and that's great - you actually get 10% bonus experience for most classes if your prime requisite stat is a 16 or better.  Another guy built a character which has pretty much nothing better than 12 - a fighter - and it's still useable.

At the end of the day ,your stats might give you an extra 5-15% benefit on some rolls. What you do with the character RPwise it what makes them great.

Yeah, 2e's crazy. Still, I miss how. . . I dunno, what's the word. Rare, I guess, paladins are in early editions.

You could only be a Human or Saurial (which was that universe's human analogue anyway), HAD to be Lawful Good, always remain lawful good, needed at least 13 Wisdom, not less than 17 (!) Charisma, and I think 13 minimum strength. Fun times, fun times.

Although my Con should probably only be 13, I think it was my answers to the alcohol-based questions that skewed it. What can I say, Irish and German ancestry. I can pound that stuff down all day. B)
