I prefer OSE or BtW myself.

What I really love about ACKS is the BECMI/RC, “Silver Age D&D” spirit of the ruleset. Didn’t really get into OSE but heard good things about it. BtW is great, but it‘s got a different vibe.

I assume what you like is the more developed domain management stuff.

I’m a sucker for any game with domain management mechanics, and ACKS obviously excels at those! But it’s got lots of other changes I enjoy. Generally speaking the authors’ enjoyment of old school D&D seems to come from the same place as mine. The closeness to RC D&D (my favorite TSR edition) doesn’t hurt either.

You know I still think, despite having tried it, that I'm not really sure how domain level play is supposed to work exactly. Might be worth a thread at some point. When you say his love comes from the same place, what kind of things do you mean? Sounds interesting.

I like the general sword and sorcery (with just the right amount of high fantasy and history) spirit of the book.

I am huge on domain management, or more broadly on the idea that high level characters become forces to be reckoned with in their game worlds, not just elite tomb robbers, and that high level games play fundamentally different from low level ones.

I dig law vs. chaos and civilization vs. barbarism and D&D as a Western.
