THe third is "Rolled all the time" but it's not in the rules. I'll correct that.

comment What to do when a player character does something that seems suicidal?
@thedarkwanderer I'm usually the GM. Really, I prefer an index card or less. Anything more is probably too much for me to remember for a given character. That said, I've either done or had players do all of the above in my 35 years GMing.

comment What are the major differences between AD&D 1st Edition & AD&D 2nd Edition
The Moral Panic isn't actually entirely over, either. Certain religious groups within the US cling to a belief that D&D, or even Fantasy as a literary genre, is evil. Jack Chick is still selling tracts claiming D&D is training in satanism. And I've met no shortage of well meaning but deluded folk in the Educational fields who buy into the Chick and Pulling misrepresentations.

comment What's the difference between a roleplaying game and a board game?
Campaigns aren't defining, nor required, RS. one-shots have been around since 1975, if not before, in the form of convention games and T&T solo modules.

Kriegspiel is a hundred years prior, and sets the standard for wargames until the 1960's... when 2-player non-refereed games begin to take over the field.
