Hi there

I am interested in having a go at this series, after reading the reviews here on BGG and watching the reviews on YouTube. Could I ask, does anyone know which version of D&D is this game series based on?

Hey, buddy, can you spare a role?

I jotted it down in my Risk campaign book. I always used to do that so I could replay my moments of glory over a glass of brandy in the sleeping quarters.

I think it's FOURTH edition. I know the three earlier ones are based on 4th ed.

5th. I don't remember 4th having advantage or disadvantage.

The series, with its mix of Daily, Encounter and At-Will powers, is a simple approximation of 4e. For ToEE, they added Advantage and Disadvantage conditions that work more or less like their 5e counterparts, but the essential system is the same 4e base as the others.

True but it also uses the d20 system so in effect it could be 3rd edition.

I just meant that because it uses advantage/disadvantage it is 5th as no other edition used that.

Either way its fun to play.

D20 is a staple of D&D, for better or for worse. So you may as well say it's based on this decrepit copy of the AD&D DM's Guide from K-mart sitting next to me on the shelf.

The D&DAS systems came out during the move to 4th edition and were modeled directly after that. They used the 4th edition races and the concepts of at-will, utility and daily powers.

After 3 games in that series, then after the release of 5th edition, TOEE incorporated the concept of advantage/disadvantage, while retaining the 4th edition mechanics upon which it was based.
