Lists with This Book. Aug 07, Jakk Makk rated it really liked it. Great cover art by Easley. And again on the re-acquisition. Cheap thrills and nostalgia! The price stung on a kid’s budget, but the value was eventually squeezed out. I knew all the spells in this edition. This might have uneatrhed the peak for me, play wise.
After this, I moved on to other game systems. Comeliness only muddied the Charisma waters and was quickly ignored. Six 1zt types, 1t halfling types, three dwarf types–you can see how the later handbooks grew out of unearhed, but it was a welcome clarification for our group. The best part was the new character classes, most of which stuck in some fashion: Cavalier, Barbarian, Thief-Acrobat first sanctioned Ninja prototype?
Unless you count assassin.
Polearms finally explained to everyone’s satisfaction. Too bad you can only carry one! Jul 21, Matthew Iden rated it liked it Recommends it for: The rule changes and enhancements dip in and out of nearly every aspect of the game, from new armor types to spells and magic items heretofore unseen. I’ve arvana had mixed feelings about Unearthed Arcana. Q3 profits looking weak?
Sling out a Fighter’s Compendium with a bunch of specialized rule sets and sub-classes. Who cares if a generic fighter, role-played to the hilt ahemcould do the trick just as well.
On the other hand, 1st Ed. There were inevitable loopholes and gaping inequities demi-human level advancement comes to mind that were in sore need of fixing.
Not to mention, well When every dorky boy between 12 and 20 had memorized the complete list of magic items and the areas of effect for each spell in the Players Handbook, it was kind of nice to toss a curveball once in a while and watch the expressions on everyone’s faces. And I’m glad Gary Gygax was the one to start the tinkering, if for no other reason than I think he did it best Apr 06, Timothy Boyd rated it liked it.
Sometimes the run-of-the-mill knowledge that everyone has access to is not enough. So here we get some nice obscure spells and such to torture, oops I mean, entertain your players with. Nice well written game reference.
Jul 13, HBalikov rated it really liked it. Here I am out of the closet. In that time, I have played a uneartged of characters of many races Elf, half-elf, Hobbit, Dwarf and human ynearthed many classes mage, fighter, thief, cleric, druid and enjoyed them all. What I haven’t done is progressed the way TSR would like me or the fellow members of our gang intended.
We still play Version 1. Versions 2, 3 and 4 at least have come and gone. Version 1 still makes us happy. It’s not overly complex and allows plenty of leeway for role-playing. One reason for that is the book currently on the table, Unearthed Arcana. It is both an explanation of some ambiguities and a compendium umearthed additional material. I am told most of it previously appeared in Dungeons magazine. It is a welcome supplement and, therefore, I give it a high rating. Now, I feel better for having said that, Marcus.
Jul hnearthed, Chad rated it it was amazing. This is by far my favorite 1st edition book as it introduced my eed time favourite character class the Cavalier. I continued to use this in 2nd edition as I did not care for the Cavalier kit in the Arcxna Fighters Handbook. Sep 28, Rob rated it really liked it. Many ‘purists’ at the time whined endlessly about this volume, but I thought it brought an added depth to the game.
On the minus side, it paved the way for the ungodly array of supplements that have bedeviled the 2nd edition of the game, so I suppose it was something of a Pandora’s box, after all. Apr 06, David Winston rated it it was amazing. Used this book so much it fell apart on me.
