I am all about the jackhammer.

Interesting side note: I am surprised that a flat head screwdriver was valued better than a Phillips?

Everyone I know tried it once,
And then House Ruled it,
I’m not playing that.

Slows down the game
Too much and it sucks.

Fireball doesn’t care what your armor type is. :laugh:

Unless you were playing the rule about magical fire having the potential to damage magic items. (Another rule that got ignored)

On the flip side, in computer games like Baulder's gate, the different AC effects of armor vs different weapon types is a nice addition.

Baldurs Gate was/is awesome. I have the enhanced edition on my iPad now.
