This personal diary is devoted to the unveiling of the old fantasy role-playing games of the past (1975-1989),especially those which - for whatever reasons - are lesser known, forgotten, obscure or neglected.
A journey into the abysses of fantasy.
Not so uncommon, because it depends a lot on what magazine that article comes from.Anyway, AD&D itself was already a dead born game thus it's not so strange for one of its supplements to be that awful.
Most 1e fans hold a similar opinion towards UA as this article. It rarely gets any love in the old school community.
I concur. I bought Unearthed Arcana as soon as it was published, as I did all AD&D books, but in every section of the rules it seemed nothing more than a kit to convert to Gygax's personal campaign. Or maybe his idealized campaign.The only things in UA that saw play in my campaign were already published in other places.
