#RPGaDay2015 – Favorite House Rule

RPG a day 2015 - Twitter

I don’t use House Rules that much because, these days, I rarely play a system for long enough to need to tweak the rules as written. Back in the days of AD&D, though, we had lots of house rules. The house rules I used most were to remove gender restrictions on ability scores and race/level limits. I found when players planned for a long game, most would not considering anything other than male humans because of the restrictions (other than for thieves). Once the restrictions were gone, there was a much greater diversity of characters. If I had to run AD&D again, I would remove the race/class restrictions, too (though not the alignment restrictions for Paladins; they have been and always shall be Lawful Good).
