comment How are Werewolf traits balanced?
It can do if people really play up the stereotypes but there's a lot of wiggle room in there so long as you don't stray too far.

comment How are Werewolf traits balanced?
It's also worth noting that with the renown system a character that is roleplayed away from the core of their breed, auspice and tribe (especially auspice) will suffer as a result. Werewolf society is structure to have certain expectations and they must be met for you to fit in. This means that unless you really do want to play the breed, auspice and tribe you pick then you're probably going to lose any benefit you get from min-maxing for traits.

comment Why does (A)D&D change so much between editions?
It's really a bit of a mixed bag to be honest. Some systems change a lot and others remain closer to the original theme. In essence (A)D&D has never had that strong a theme to anchor it in a given set of rules - no core setting to keep it tied down.

comment Are Hit Points in Dungeon World just a nod to D&D?
@SevenSidedDir laughs Yes, I couldn't agree more. It's a great place to find settings and systems that resonate with how you like to play.

comment What system or sourcebooks should I use to run a pre Roman, Celtic Britain campaign?
It's been a long time but I seem to remember a very enjoyable game for just this sort of setting, using the old RuneQuest ruleset (not sure which edition I'm afraid.
