Re: Arcanist - Generic Character Class

Hey, man, sorry for the late response. I'm a bit lazy about checking the forums. I believe what you're referring to is the references in the Companion about trading off spell casting levels to pick up generic class abilities. By deciding not to advance a level as a spellcaster, the Arcanist can inst...

Re: Palladium Fantasy Setting for C&C

Not interested in converting classes, just the races (some of which were their own class (RCC). C&C is THE system for me these days. Played many fantasy systems over the last 35 years, including Palladium. No system beats C&C for ease of use and old school feel...so if the setting won't work, the s...

Re: Palladium Fantasy Setting for C&C

The same could be said for any number of RPG systems back then, really. It’s amazing what we dealt with back then. Not that this is a defense of Palladium – they stuck to their universal system unchanged for so long. I’m no fan of the edition treadmill, but their system could’ve done with a serious...

I just meant that Gnolls give you a good jumping-off point to determine the racial abilities you'll need to adapt ...

Re: Palladium Fantasy Setting for C&C

Many years ago I ran a long-term D&D 3.5 campaign using Palladium Fantasy's setting, which is one of my all-time favorite settings. I think it'd translate pretty well to C&C. You'd need to so some work to adapt the various races--look at Gnolls for Wolfen, as a hint--and balance them as PC classes, ...

Re: Mind flayer

The OGL allows nearly any monster TSR/WOTC has ever done to be used "as is". IE copy/paste it straight from their SRD. THIS is key. If it's not in the SRD, it's likely not available. It's not about what has been expressly protected; it's about what has and has not been expressly allowed. Since the ...

It's not so much a factor of what is "protected" (that is, what has expressly been declared product identity) as it is what has and has not been released as open game content.
