The differences between Class-Based and Skill-Based RPGs. Do you prefer levels with increasing hit points and powers like D&D? Or do you prefer choosing your character's individual skills and abilities like RuneQuest? Both have their advantages and potential hurdles. __________ *DID YOU KNOW I'M A NOVELIST?* If you want to support my channel, or just want to read an action-packed Urban Fantasy about modern-day monster hunters and their sentient weapons, check out my four-novel Valducan series (you might notice Dämoren subtlety placed behind me). They feature gun fights, sword fights, chases, monsters, and a smattering of horror. Audio book editions narrated by the badass R.C. Bray: https://amzn.to/3rehNnJ I also write pulpy Sword & Sorcery thief adventures in my Tales of the Black Raven series. It's 21 short adventures packed with action, intrigue, and daring heroics. Audio editions read by R.C. Bray. https://amzn.to/3faj4cX And if you want a kickass and dark revenge story about a modern-day sorceress hunting for lost Carcosa, my novel Ashes of Onyx is available in print, ebook, and audio book: https://amzn.to/3sfh1IA If you enjoyed my stories, please leave a rating or review on Amazon, Audible, and/or Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/4088554.Seth_Skorkowsky __________ *MY OWN PUBLISHED RPG ADVENTURES* A Mother's Love (Call of Cthulhu 7e).
