I second your "Arrrgh!" Even knowing the answer to this question (I second Brian B-S's), I am getting burned out on 4E because of the constant additions and updates.

"…the templar cleric is the cleric of healer's lore, lasers, and optional pacifism." -- Lasers??

You don't happen to have a handy link to the citation, do you?

Thanks, this is about what I remember doing, and it's good (and not too surprising) to learn I was not alone. I had looked for "ability check" in the 1E rules, but found nothing and assumed it was only formally introduced in 2E, but now I see that it's in the Cyclopedia (Ch 13) and that the Cyclopedia even has a skills system in Chapter 5! Who knew? (Probably a lot of people.) Thanks again!

comment What is the purpose of old-school D&D class level limitations?
Thanks for the answer. I thought I would just comment that this humanocentric argument (though not its relation to class level limits) is also found in the 1E AD&D DMG p21.

Your comment about unlimited thief levels and half-orcs having no assassin limit instead is correct. This is one of the things that confused me, too. Why thieves? Weird.
