Re: C&C S&S?

I have been running it after I picked up a lot of the books at GaryCon this year. Having a lot of fun with it.

Re: C&C S&S?

I would say that the best way to do it is severely limit magic items. Also take a look at the Arcanist class from Amazing Adventures. They have a siege check they have to make to cast a spell and there are Sanity rules in the system as well. Also in S&S you usually horrible abominations, demons from...

Re: Buttmonkey's Home Game

A tree trimmer down the block managed to take down a power line and blow up the transformer, so we were without power from about 4:30 to 8:30 on Friday. No power meant no game session. Grr. We should be playing again on July 5th. I've finally got some original material to run once the party finishe...

Re: FLGS Update

No more FLGS in my neighborhood. The last one that outlasted everyone else just closed their doors recently. One calls itself a gaming store but is really just a card store. Don't know how long that's going to last either.

Re: Crickets chirping

Reminds me of the old fantasy wargame where a Nazi SS patrol ran into the forces of the Evil High Priest. How much damage does a panzerfaust do to a troll?

My wife used to do that. She had two extra stats in her AD&D game. Luck and Perception. Worked fine.

Re: The Mummy characters

Rick would probably be a Raider without the cryptolinguist ability. Switch that out with two fisted since he uses two gun fighting in the movies. Evie might be a socialite with some occult background and maybe some Raider traits since in the second movie she very good with a rifle. Johnathon would b...

The Mummy characters

So how would you stat out the characters of Rick, Evie and Johnathon from the Mummy movies? I think Rick would be a Raider/Gunslinger or Raider/Soldier. Evie would be a raider but more studios, perhaps switching out the more combative abilities with more knowledge type stuff. Or maybe even a non cas...

Deal making at Gary Con

So I decided to go to dealer table on Sunday, the last day of Gary Con. I got a sweet deal, the Manual of Monsters, The Adventurers Companion and the GM Screen for only &50! Now I want to run an AA game in the worse way. Or play in one if the stars are right.

Re: With balance, the Avengers would have never beeen.

Everyone has their place. Hawkeye and Black Widow are good for stealth, special ops stuff, while the Hulk and Thor are the heavy hitters. Cap functions as the leader and strategist, while Iron Man is good at tech stuff. So balance is relative.

So I was looking over Amazing Adventures and I didn't see any rules about stuff like dynamite or grenades. Is it there and I am just missing it? I just now this will come up in a game some time and I just want to be prepared.

Any Amazing Adventures actual play?

So I was wondering if anyone has actually played out a campaign using this game. Seems like everyone really likes this game but no one is discussing actual games that they are playing. So is anyone actually playing this game and if so want have you done with it?

Re: Well, it happened again, gents

[*] Well, I've had a few failed attempts, but many successes with C&C. I guess some of those I failed with may have been married to feats, quicker xp/leveling, powerful starting characters (d6 wizards w/more spells) vs. d4 wizards w/less spells, etc.), unusual prestige-type classes, among others.
