    If you want a revision of the Thief class from B/X by Gavin Norman, he already did a book called The B/X Rogue. Admittedly, it's a lot fiddlier than his later work, but I like it. Unfortunately, as its for Labyrinth Lord, it is built on a 20-level scale though.

    Doc Sammy Reads The Classics

    The only thing that really worries me is the Pepto. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of a Pepto binge.

    You'd think they'd at least tackle Night's Dark Terror before moving on from the B Series.

    It's funny now that we live in the Kickstarter age how incredibly high that price seemed to me at the time.
