Re: The Troll Lord product you'd like to see produced for C&

For those of you that want an Oriental Adventures C&C book, like me, then there is good news from Celticgamer who wrote the Codex Nordica and the Codex Celtrarum. From Celticgamer “There will be Asian codices alright! Once the European volumes are done I will move onto Early Japan (Shinto era, when ...

Re: Codex Germania

Celticgamer,

That is great news about the Asian Codex books. This is a great way for C&C to have an Oriental Adventure book equivalent with even more background.

Re: Secondary skills

I use secondary skills in a different manner than suggested in the CKG. Mostly I allow fighters and Bards to have them. I look at the secondary skill as just that; a skill the character has developed but not to their full potential. So the way I work it; is that the character gets to add only half t...

Re: Adventurers Backpack question on classes

There is a lot of interesting discussion going on about this topic. As a house rule, I let the player choose the primes regardless of class. If a player wants to be a human fighter with intelligence, wisdom, and charisma as primes; then I am all for it. I have used Treebores house rule on this issue...

Re: SECOND PRINTING KICKSTARTER!!!

Grey Elf,

Thanks for the recommendations on the AA to C&C conversions. I like the Gumshoe and Raider class because they can fight well but also have several other skills that come in handy. I like the idea of intelligent fighters.

Re: Demon Wars

The game has arrived. It is very interesting. Armor adds to defense but also reduces damage. Characters and monsters get a defensive role. Characters have low HPs 6 to 8 plus endurance bonus at level one. Classes do not get hit points at each levels. Weapon damage is about equal to C&C. The games us...

Re: Lone Wolf by by Dominic McDowall - Cubicle 7

Omote,

As I understand it; it is a revision of the Multiplayer Books with rules clarifications and additional optional rules. I am getting it because of the setting of Magnamund and I want to see the changes made to some of the character classes in Heroes of Magnamund.

Re: Would 2e AD&D kits work for C&C?

I liked the kits in 2ed. I like the Bard's Handbook the best. Kits will work in C&C as people above have sugested using the SIEGE Engine. If I were to allow kits i would cut down the classes available to players.

Cubicle 7 is redoing the Lone Wolf RPG and offers a Kick-starter. I have always liked the character classes in the World of Magnamund. Kai Lords are great!

I will be purchasing this product as soon as I can. I do believe that the Kick-starter should start now. Col Moran will need the Hyde Formula based on what I saw in the Quick Start rules.

Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

DMSamuel,

Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts on D&D 5th ed. based upon your experience.

I find the Advantage/Disadvantage game mechanic interesting, although I have decided not to use it in my C&C house rules.

I also liked the brief list of skills.

Re: TLG 77011 Victorious

I have looked at the filled in character sheet and find it interesting. I would think the hunter would be higher in level than 4th. I also note that the character seems more powerful than a C&C 4th level class; not that is a bad thing.
