So in the case of WB1 vs. OD&D, do you think I should go with WB1 (i.e. the -2,-4 damage version of the rule) or OD&D (the 1/2 damage version)? From what you're saying, it sounds like you mean WB1. I would agree, mainly because in the end Swords & Wizardry is not meant to be entirely the same game as OD&D, but please let me know what you think.

- The "Hereditary Foes" rule in WB1 - +1 vs. Orcs etc. for Dwarves and Elves . . . . do you feel like this is to-hit, damage, or both? WB1 doesn't specify, while the other WB versions say to-hit "or" damage, but that's vague plus we're ignoring them at this point anyway. What do you think?
sparc_spread wrote:- Elves noticing secret doors in passing (not actively searching) - this is not in WB1 at all, but in other rules it's a 1/6 chance (SW Complete, OSRIC, AD&D1e) or 2/6 chance (WB3, OD&D). Do you have a preferred interpretation? As I'm trying to unify WB w/ Complete, I guess Complete supersedes WB, but still am not sure.
sparc_spread wrote:- Halfling missile accuracy - I've seen this anywhere between +1 (SW Complete), +2 (all WB eds., SW Light), and +3 (OSRIC). And none of them seem to say whether they mean to-hit, damage, or both. Again I guess Complete over WB but do you have a preferred interpretation?
