Re: Alternative to the SIEGE system

I looked at the 15, +3/-3 style and it worked for some pathfinder players. But I don't know, the 18/12 feels more 'AD&D' or nostalgic to me.

Gaming Podcast with C&C rules

Not sure where to put this but...

What are the stipulations on using the C&C rule set for an RPG podcast?

I did not see info on the website unless I missed it (which is very likely).
