Grappling | Wrestling with Complexity | Wandering DMs S02 E46
Dan & Paul discuss Grappling rules in D&D and other TTRPGs over the years and editions. Should it be simple or complex? How much detail do you want included? Does it warrant a unique subsystem, or should it connect to the core mechanic for other combat maneuvers, like swordplay? Where’s the sweet spot? We dig deep into the texts for 5E, 3E, 1E, and Original D&D, as well as Boot Hill, Top Secret, Savage Worlds, d20 modern, and more.
Wandering DMs Paul Siegel and Dan “Delta” Collins host thoughtful discussions on D&D and other TTRPGs every week. Comparing the pros and cons of every edition from the 1974 Original D&D little brown books to cutting-edge releases for 5E D&D today, we broadcast live on YouTube and Twitch so we can take viewer questions and comments on the topic of the day. Live every Sunday at 1 PM Eastern time.
