Uhh so if anyone plays or wants to play "retro" D&D, I've got a game up on RPoL. Uses Blueholme rules, which are free. https://rpol.net/game.cgi?gi=74816 If you want in, sign up, submit an RTJ, and I'll weigh your application against everyone else's. Just follow the posting guidelines, and we're cool. The rules are pretty much AD&D2E, but, uhh, older, and with some things house ruled by me. I mean, to be completely honest, this is John Eric Holmes' Basic Rules (1977) meant to introduce less experienced/younger people to 1st Edition AD&D (also 1977) rules run through the Open Gaming License, and with anything directly having to do with Dungeons & Dragons being filed off, outside of a dedication to Professor Holmes.

    Tasha's Cauldron of Everything: "Did your Game Master overlook, uhh... everything when starting a game? Please turn to Page 139 of this book, photocopy the section several dozen times on cardstock, and then roll it up and smack them over the head with it."

    Kinda sad-laughed that they had to include common sense stuff in that book, but the rest of it is glorious stuff for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition adventures! Why? Psionics, that's why.

      I am intrigued by what you say here, though I do not fully comprehend it. Are we talking about telekinetic manifestations of hyperdimensional pseudo-forces?

      Yes! I playtested the Mystic class, and while I understand Wizards of the Coast's decision to scrap it, I was a little bummed! It was still a better approach than throwing a Spell Point System at people, which is kind of what pre-4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons did. Not to say that I didn't like that approach, but I can definitely see why Wizards of the Coast took one look at it, and said, "Nah. We're not doing that.", and did what they did.
      Now, Psionics are emulated via certain class paths, feats, and a few spells.
