Sorry if this question has already been asked umpteen time before…
Anyway, I have been thinking about introducing 3rd ed to our gaming group (we may not still, there are various competing factors). Anyway, we all have 2nd ed characters we are all very attached to (my personal favourite is a halfling called Dr Aethelbert Scroggins, now getting towards the end of his 6th career, for those that are interested…), and we would be very sad if some old friends got left behind in the switch.
So, here's the question, how well do 2nd ed characters translate over? Dr Scroggins has had a fairly strange career path (student, surgeon, physician, embalmer, cartographer, and now guild master), so I wouldn't be surprised if some careers and abilities were lost along the way, but most other characters in the group are more 'normal' (mercenary, veteran, champion etc, apprentice wizard, journeyman wizard, master wizard etc).
Many thanks for any advice,
