Re: Forum upgrade - test post

… there is nothing like the forum and the ability to go back and look through posts from years ago. Absolutely. It's worse than that for people in different time zones, though: Discord's chat style presentation means that you can only really use it properly when the majority of people are on there,...

Re: Forum upgrade - test post

I'm far less bothered about the look of the forum than I am by it disappearing. Thanks for taking the decision to update and keep the forum around, there really isn't an adequate substitute yet.

Re: Tunnels & Trolls 5th Edition compact paperbacks cheap

I'll defer to Big Jack Brass here. If he disagrees with any of this, I am obviously mistaken. No, that's an excellent run through the major differences and in considerably more detail than I could manage! And anyway, I'm hardly an expert: the main thing I learned from T&T was never to prioritise th...

Re: Tunnels & Trolls 5th Edition compact paperbacks cheap

I've never tried T&T but remember seeing their stuff at the local hobby shop in the early '80s. How different is it from D&D or C&C? Character class is based around magic use: Warriors cannot use magic; Wizards can fully use magic; Rogues can use some magic. There are all manner of choices for diff...

Re: Repost of Steve's update from Facebook

Thanks for posting this. I do wish the company would directly put updates here as well as Facebook. Not everyone uses that site.

Ah, thank you. That's a pity.

Since it looks as though the latest versions of both the PH and M&T will be out (probably) this year I'll just stick with "C&C Condensed" for now and wait.

Do you happen to have a link to a specific tweet? I've searched the timeline and can't find anything. Thanks.

Re: Monsters & Treasure 5th Printing on Kickstarter now!

I take it that the PDF is currently only available to backers of the Kickstarter? The ones on DrivethruRPG and the TLG store seem to be 4th printing.

Can't recall anyone I know playing them. Personally I don't have them in my game world at all.

Re: Haunted Highlands bundle?

Thank you, that's helpful. The bundle doesn't look too be much of a deal in that case, as you're paying for content twice. I've picked up the Keeper's Guide to start with.

Haunted Highlands bundle?

As the HH guide appears to be long out of print and extremely difficult to find I looked into getting a copy in PDF. This has left me confused. DrivethruRPG has a bundle containing the guides and several adventures (DB 1-6), but when I read a review of the CK HH guide it seemed to indicate that the ...

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

At the moment I'm working my way through Danger International [/b] with a view to using it to run a game of Fringeworthy . I could use the original Tri Tac system, but it's a bit of a mess to sort through and find the relevant information, so I thought I'd go for something that's rather more coheren...
