House Rules Question: Descending vs Ascending AC

To start the discussion off right, how about your current thinking on descending vs ascending AC in Swords&Wizardry.

Which are you currently thinking of using?  Benefits and drawbacks of each?

I'm one of those heretics who prefers Ascending Armor Class. Running C&C games for a few years has spoiled me - I love not having to regularly reference combat matrices during a game session.

Hey there gnombient

I fear I might also be a heretic...Although in my case it was returning to the game via 3.5 that spoiled me on the descending system.

That said, I understand the nostalgia argument too, and I think this is a choice to take seriously.

Still, I've begun to think as a player that I might like the idea of being able to "receive" to-hit bonuses at different levels. Even though the same bonuses are there in the descending system, being able to add rather than subtract just seems like your character is gaining something...

Hey gnom-bientus

I just realized who you were...Thanks for stopping by and I must say I'm enjoying your blogging on the Library game very much. Very exciting idea.

Hello
I'm Looking to buy [url=http://www.milesgershon.com/entertainment-centers.html][b]Entertainment Centers[/b][/url] or [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]Wall Units[/b][/url] For a new hotel chain I'm working at in.
Can you guys give me a good recommendation of where is the top deal on these? I live in Kansas and I heard that the most important thing about these [url=http://www.squidoo.com/ent3rtacn3tr][b]Entertainment Centers[/b][/url] is the cost of shipping and installation.
Thanks

k2 affects the cannabanoids in the brain in the exact same way that weed does,
that's what makes this stuff substitute for marijuana. it acts almost exactly like bud,
that's the whole idea. i think it's worth every penny, you have to try this stuff out.
You won't be disatisfied with this place [url=http://www.k2blacksmoke.com]K2 Smoke[/url]. Been
ordering from them for a long time and they're shipping and billing is VERY discrete. Try it out today!

Hey People

I wanted to share with you a very unique site I just came across teaching [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] For All Levels If you guys have seen the Discovery Channel TV Show called Fight Quest you would have seen their chief instructor Ran Nakash there featured on their [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] episode. Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?


Best
