A passing thought...
So most old-school D&D players recognize that the roots of the game are in pulp-style sword & sorcery literature,
Heroes in pulp-style sword & sorcery literature are usually (always?) quite capable,
Are first level characters, whether it be OD&D, B/X, AD&D, so fragile?
The real roots of D&D are in wargames and players start as regular wargame Joes.
True? False? Thoughts?
