what I’d like to get with my easter bunny

Now, if Satan could hook me up with THIS stuff, that'd be another story

Things I wish D&D bothered to address – and which I would be tempted to pay for*

  • Combat where a party of 4-6 adventurers have their gang of 4-6 retainers each, without it becoming a big glob of rolling 25d20 and blowing your brains out with boredom.  Like small squad tactics or something, where your squad could be, like, a Hero, a displacer beast, and two Gnomes.
  • Some sort of guidance on social encounters.  (I know, I know!  I’m a communist who likes social mechanics.)
  • Advice on staging urban adventures – preferably as clear and as helpful as the dungeon creation and wilderness creation advice in Moldvay and Cook/Marsh.
  • Some kind of rules or help on the Endgame stuff, so that it’s more than just, “Oh, I see your castle would cost $X bazillion gold, and here are your YdZ first-level Red Shirts, use them in good health.”  The Mentzer Companion Rules are a step in the right direction but don’t really cut it in terms of practical advice.
  • A Thief class that actually makes freakin’ sense in the context of the default skill system of your campaign.  (Even the earliest editions of D&D had a skill system – yours.)

* = “tempted” is probably the key word here.
