What is AD&D? Never heard about that.
I was fantasizing today while i was walking, and i imagined that there surely are persons who never played Dungeons & Dragons in any form but did play thoroughly fantasy rpg's notwithstanding.
This may sound quite bizarre but it ought not. If we take for granted that some persons were introduced to fantasy rpg's through a game other than D&D (and there are many), it should be possible that among them there is someone who never played D&D in any form, because they remained faithful to their first, true love.
So, i imagine Dungeon masters scattered around the world who are totally ignorant about AD&D rules. This is odd after all, because we assume everyone to be conversant and confident with Dungeons & Dragons. when we talk for instance to a fellow blogger who runs a website. we take it for granted that he knows about d&d, that he played it at least once
This is the problem, that we take it for granted. Take it for granted that anyone in the OSR knows about D&D, that each one must have a knowledge of it.
I bet almost no one really believes there are OSR fans who know nothing about D&D, who never played it nor intend to.I might be one of them(i'm not claiming this is true) for example, nonetheless i own a blog and i am proudly saying that i feel to belong to the OSR movement.
