SRD?

I keep hearing about a System Reference Document for C&C but I can't find a link for it. Does anyone know where it is?

Bastard Sword question

<t>So just how does the Bastard Sword work now? Is it a one-handed or two-handed weapon? If it is a one-handed weapon then why shouldn't use it instead of a broadsword or longsword? If it is two handed than why not just use a two-handed sword since that does more damage? Is there something I am miss...

<t>I am a long-time player of the Champions/Hero System and I have always said that the best thing about it is that you can make any character you want to make in nearly every genre.

<t>I lost my mother to a heart attack when I was only ten years old. I could live to be 200 and I will always remember the day I found out. For some reason that still escapes me to this day I have never cried, I just felt a dull ache in my heart. Even today, and I am 43, I still feel that ache. The ...

No Mage Armor?

<t>So the last time I was running C&C I am running some combat and I the wizard in the party is mentioning how low his AC is. So I ask him why didn't he cast Mage Armor? He tells me that it's not in the book. And it's not.<br/> <br/> Wow. I mean this spell is about as important as magic missile ...

<t>But perhaps as a testament to DnD, my biggest cripe was that for every 1 RPG of something else to be played, there were like 5 DnD games going on. If you were sick of DnD or fantasy and needed a change, you had a very small pool of fellow players to chose from. And God forbid you suggest playing ...

<t>I don't think that the Hobbit would be really that hard an adaptation because compared to the LOTR it is a much simpler story. You only really had the thirteen dwarves, Gandalf and Bilbo and some minor supporting characters. You don't have a thousand and one minor characters and stuff to keep tra...

<t>I have always sort of liked point-buy because it puts everyone on an even stand. No one has the advantage over anyone so no one feels jealous or upset. Still when I ran my last game I had everyone roll 4d6 drop the lowest score and no one had any problems. My wife has always used point buy, but t...
