You need to reread both books.most of the copmbat rules in C&T superceded the
CFHB rules, and aren't really compatable. The rest seems pretty new.
Initiative is done differently, different rules apply to specialization,
Crits are all new, etc.

The Players option is an attempt to bring Gurps character generation into
AD&D, including a total rewrite of kits to make them compatable with the new
system, and has a totally redone psionic system

Didn't you start something on ADND-L about psionics, by taking the same tack,
and attacking someone's opinion without checking your facts there either?

Or maybe he read the option books and decided they drifted to far from the
game. Maybe you should read them before attacking someone else's opinions.
Maybe you should learn how to make a post that isn't an attack, even if you
disagree with someone. On both lists, and any others you might be on. You
come off as a teenager.
