  1. 2nd Edition multiclassing and dual classing (only humans can dual class) were just fine for a PnP tabletop game that had a good DM in charge of everything. Thiefs were also good to have in the party for the same reason. 2nd edition didn't translate to video games very well -- too much relied on a good DM. 3rd edition, on the other hand, was perfectly suited to video games... there's a rule for everything in 3rd edition, in some book somewhere.

It was probably the most unbalanced system I ever used, but it was a lot of fun. The thief class was not useful in combat unless multi classed. They were a one shot wonder hoping their backstab would hit. That was the whole point though. They weren't a combat powerhouse.

This simulates what adventures would have to do in reality to refresh themselves. I kind of liked the way BG/Icewind Dale did it bet
