Dungeons & Dragons NewsPathfinder RPG News “We will very quickly have 20 people working on Pathfinder-related stuff from an Design/Editing/Development POV. In other words, the folks who work full-time on creating the print products that we make. That does not include the 5 members of the art department who do nothing but Pathfinder stuff. It doesn’t include our Pathfinder licensing manager who spends his time on the minis and other licensed products. It doesn’t include Erik who pretty much focuses on Pathfinder most of the time.”D&D Attack Bonuses By EditionOver at the blog Raging Owlbear you can see a breakdown of attack bonuses for fighter (or equivalent) classes throughout D&D. It was done with the goal of asking “How compatible will 5th Edition be with ? Can I run an OSR module without conversion under 5th edition? Can I also run older AD&D modules in 5th Edition unchanged?” but it also makes of an interesting bit of trivia in its own right. I figured it would be fun to make a graph of the figures. [72 comments]From the original article: “In the following chart, I compare the relative “to hit” bonus of the Fighter class (THAC0 has been translated into its equivalent “to hit” bonus). D&D 4th Edition numbers have been left out of this comparison since 4e content would take significant alteration to play under any other edition. . . . In the spreadsheet above you can see, the Fighter’s combat efficacy is relatively unchanged from AD&D through 3.x, but is adjusted significantly downward in 5th edition.”As my own note, I’d add that attack bonuses don’t exist in isolation, and plenty of other factors go into determining how likely someone is to hit something in any iteration of D&D.
