Re: Are Barbarians Necessary?

No, but the C&C Barbarian from 4th printing onward is a nice class. I am developing a Basic C&C with only four classes, Fighter, Rogue, Magic user, Mystic. However, I am allowing advantages and secondary skills that will improve with character level, 1/2. I will allow multiclassing and class and a h...

Re: The CKG And Me

-SJ, When I first purchased the CKG a few years ago I was disappointed. I do not like how it recommends most of the character classses advancing beyoung level 12, (BTH, abilities gained ect...) But, as time went by I kept reading it and found information that I had never considered. It gives the rea...

Re: Advantages . . . in the CKG. Anyone using them?

Tylermo,

I like the use of advantages. I do not want classes as strong as 3e but I do want them a little more powerful than PHB. I would recommend you control the amount you give out and limit the advantages a player can pick from.

Jason,

Like I said I like it. I would like to see your class reconstruction engine. I have built one and it works well for most class, but the spell castering ones.

Re: Thoughts on Brimstone RPG and Gaxmoor PDF/map?

I have ordered Brimstone because I like to see new classes and abilities. I also think the setting could be interesting. When I get Brimstone, I will look it over and incorporate some of the classes and abilities into my C&C game. In addition, based on experience with Amazing Adentures; it gave me a...

Re: AA as the ruleset for fantasy INSTEAD of C&C?

I have not considered AA as a total replacement of C&C, but I will draw heavily on both AA and Victorious to flesh out my fantasy game. I like the Gumshoe and Raider character classes. I also like the Mentalist class, which I am modifying into three versions based on each mental attribute, (Wisdom, ...

Re: A "glimpse" into the Mytho's...

Based upon looking at the Amazing Adventure and Victorious Kickstarters; between $18K and $20K should be earned. I hope it is more though.

it looks like you are correct. The Trolls are prepping their next major Kickstarter: a mythos triology: Germania, Slavorum and Classicus. This is going to be a massive undertaking, but bring all three to the fore far quicker.

Do you think 5E is easier to run than 3E just based upon the three source books (DMG, PHB, & MM)?

Yes, AA would work well for such a story. Its character classes and game mechenics would allow you to role play the desired theme till your hearts content.

I went ahead and purchased D&D 5E. I have not played the game. I offer a few observations based upon reading the material in the PHB, DMG, and the MM. I liked the monster manual the best. The Vampire write up had a Bram Stoker feel to it. I would not say that 5E is easier to play than D&D 3E with ju...
