Epicedion: No, it's not. Providing a challenging, interesting encounter to high-level characters requires scaling the enemies to within a certain range of the characters.
Epicedion: I don't think a Star Wars RPG has ever gotten Jedi right.
RoyFokker'sGhost: Sort of. 3rd Ed was actually designed around the idea of fitting in a a full 1-20 campaign within 6 months. There was a survey done while they were writing up 3rd Ed, and the result was that the average campaign or group lasted 6 months before breaking up for whatever reason. So, Monte Cook and the others focused on how to get the most out of those 6 months in terms of character advancement & gear.
mark.jms: That mostly happened, I think, because they ditched "XP for Treasure" and went fully "XP for Kills".
Epicedion: I still have no idea how level 1 commoners have a life expectancy of more than a week. Just getting from the farm to the market has got to be pretty deadly.
Epicedion: The issue still remains that if your 15th level characters want to fight a damn orc, the orc has to be the Lord God Emperor of All Orc-kin Through Time and Space, or he's less threatening than a legless kitten.
Thunderboy: I played AD&D (v1) for nearly fifteen years, and never once did I see anyone using miniatures.
Methadone Girls: NowhereMon: Meh,My group is fully invested in Pathfinder, I don't think there is any going back at this point.me too
Makh: FTFA: Four years later, we still have yet to reach level 11.Now you know how the elves feel. I mean seriously, you are 400 years old and you are still level 1? Are you farking slow in the head?
