Just How Compatible Will 5e be With the OSR? "Raging Owlbear" Had Done the Math
Who, or what, is Raging Owlbear? It's a fairly new gaming blog that has done the math to compare the numbers across the editions. Don't believe me? The chart above goes to level 20 on his site - I'm just offering a sample to wet the appetite.
It's all about "bounded accuracy", which the Owlbear in question talks about too.
He also stats out a handful of creatures to show how they compare between 2e and 5e. below is a sample.
If this is the kind of stiff one will find at the Raging Owlbear, I strongly suggest folks add it to their list of blogs to read. Drop by and tell him Tenkar sent ya.
