Re: Do Monsters get their HD added to their Save?

All of that applies to dragons as well, as in they add their full HD to all saving throws PLUS an additional saving throw bonus as determined by their age category. Just so you know. ;)

Re: Rogue Class Abilities

This is not *strictly* by the book, but if there is a fairly reasonable chance of success with no penalty for a small chance of failing, just let them pass the check and get on with the story. Though, I don't usually let other classes perform the skills of other classes (except climbing) -- but if I...

Re: What boardgame(s) are you playing?

More Warhammer Quest, once again. With all of these excellent fantasy RPG tile companies out there, WHQ becomes even more evocative. For Warhammer Quest fans, check out http://www.blackscrollsgames.com/ and get DEEP! into WHQ.

Re: Counter spell ??

I do believe there is a basic method to counter spelling provided by the Wizard class in the CKG. In fact, it's a class ability for higher-level wizards if I recall correctly.

Re: Cleveland Concoction - CON

Palladium's fantasy RPG has some choice setting and adventure material. I've mined it for many years, but most of what I have taken is from Book II: The Old Ones.

I'm currently reading my print copy of The Blight (800 pgs). Egads!
