Question about Dodging and stuff...

    (First off-topic Q:  Does everyone on this list have an email client
that handles HTML?  Or only plain text?  Mostly just curious is all).

    Now, the main question.

    How many of you actually use the "Dodging" optional rules listed in Book
1, pg.15.  What about the "Dodging Magic" rule?  And, last but not least,
how do you use it...exactly.  The way it looks (I've only used it a handfull
of times...and a long time ago to boot), the 'defender' takes his DV and
this is the number listed on the left side of the chart ("Dodge Value").
Then, you take the 'defenders' AV and add the 'attackers' DB and AB (i.e,
their DV), and this is the number that you look at accross the top ("Total
Value Dodged").  Cross referencing these numbers gives you a %'age or N or A
chance to be successful in avoiding the attackers blow.  Is this how it is
supposed to work?

    I'm asking this because I am trying to convert most AD&D system stuff
over to P&P system stuff for a World of Greyhawk campaign.  If your curious,
you can check it out at: and just follow
the link.  It is quit rough right now and doesn't have the slickest
formatting (I just imported the .doc straight into FrontPage98 and made a
few obvious changes), but I would really appreciate any input or
suggestions...expecially in the realm of trying to find a way to convert
AD&D spells into P&P spells without having to rewrite every one of them!
