I just finished my second campaign of Dungeons and Dragons yesterday, and this seems like a good time to wrap up my series on D&D.
The only thing that really became obvious to me during the campaign was the fact that I really don't have a handle on stats. Keeping track of stats is confusing, because there are a lot of them, and I don't know what they mean. For example, there is an attack stat. Also, a base attack stat. And a base attack bonus. These are all different, somehow. I swear, this game needs a manual.
Well, okay, there is a manual, but it's about 600 pages. I'd prefer a 20-page manual.
There are also a lot of dice involved in D&D. They're all used for different things, I think. Most of the time, I had to roll the 20-sided die. I also had to roll the 6-sided die once or twice. There's a 12-sided die and a 4-sided die and I think a 10-sided die. They looked kind of cool, but we never really used them.
Anyway, I think that's all I have to say about Dungeons and Dragons. There are dungeons, and there are dragons. And stat lists, which are more terrifying than the dungeons and dragons put together.
