Re: Worst fantasy movie ...

The LOTR films had a sense of care and passion behind them - the Hobbit trilogy by comparison felt like a bloated cash-out. If LOTR had never existed, maybe the Hobbit would've gotten a better reception? Same could be said for the Star Wars prequels. . . I seriously dislike the Hobbit films. Just a...

Re: Selling used books - good place to post?

Open Discussion might be the best place here. Not to drive traffic away from this site, but there may be a place on the Trolls Discord channel where you would get more looks. Might be worth a try.

Re: Invisible scout

Well in this case, the goal was to get this gem. They knew the danger. Good thing is the rogue is an NPC that I'm playing and not either of my son's characters. He's been pretty clever so far, so I suspect the wizard that sent them on the quest will figure something out for them.

Re: Light Spell

I'd say sure it is possible. Something like have the caster make an int (or Wis if a cleric) base attack. If it hits then the spell is placed correctly on the end of the target's noes and it is now at a negative to hit. A crit puts it in its eye and blinds the target. Isn't there a blinding flash s...

Re: Light Spell

Do you let mages and cleric perfectly put a spell just where they want... think magic missile perfect or any spell centered area to get the bad and just miss the good? So if you do not force some sort of magic spell to hit... then do not do it here. Does the other guy get a save to not have it be i...

Re: Invisible scout

Are you also asking about the raise dead? I love letting PCs that die, and the player wants to, play them get raised or reincarnated easily... I think 7th or 9th level NPC should be pretty common (ok, out there). If they do not have a "will" in advance, that's what speak with dead is all about. Mak...

Looking for ideas on how Invisible scouts communicate back to the party. My son's party has an invisible & silent Rogue, followed by an invisible Ranger. I've been challenging him to be creative in how they can communicate when to stop, when there's danger, etc without either revealing their positio...

Light Spell

No doubt this has been covered before, but I couldn't find it in a search, so here goes. Can a Light spell be cast directly into the eyes of an opponent, blinding them temporarily? I know you could in OD&D, but can't in 1E. The C&C spell description doesn't say either way. My son asked about it in l...

Welcome to the Crusade! As others have said, things aren't as active here as they used to be, but there still is a core group that checks in.
