- Markshire PCs:
I’ve been completely removed from the p&p version of D&D for quite some time now, so I may be a bit skewed towards old-skool. But from what I’ve heard the mechanic for continued attempts at resistance isn’t so bad in my book. I like the notion of being able to summon up the chutzpah or whatever to eventually resist a magical effect of some kind, though I assume that low-level characters will end up with the short end of the stick most of the time. I remember how Hold Person was devastating to a low-level party.
Of course, everything else I’ve heard about the newest version doesn’t look promising. I remember playing v3 and maybe some 3.5…Didn’t like it. 🙁
Cor, thanks for the thorough assessment.
