Re: Aihrde is finally becoming real to me...

It's getting there for me. I love my old copy of the AWD folio but find the Codex a bit harder to read due mainly to font size...the eyes are not what they used to be these days.... :D

The edition wars ended long ago and I'm glad they are dead and (partially) buried.

I didn't know that C-tard was a thing. Kinda lame :lol:
I saw C-Tard during the C&C vs OSRIC dust up years ago. Another thing that I am glad is dead and buried.

Baggage often has your name on it, so you can claim it later.

Oh, no. Wait, that's luggage. And in some places of other worlds, it follows you.

You're abut 4 years too late to get me in on the edition bashing thing, friend. What ARE you talking about? I simply gave my opinion. Quit projecting. I'm not projecting and using terms like 'Snowflake' pretty much puts you in the same camp as those that used terms like "Turd-Edition" &qu...

Re: Dropping the Baggage

Seriously I would actually consider the above AD&D 3rd over C&C as 3rd as C&C is more akin to the idea of a Gygaxian Second edition in my book. Well Gygax said C&C was his idea of what 3rd should have been... Probably as he had direct input and veto on rules ;) But in any case, the ...

I like it. Another idea I kicked around was making it a bit more like Earthdawn in that the Winter's Dark wasn't just Unklar and his empire but multiple evil entities that carved the world up and bringing in some pretty terrible things. What we see in the Cradle of the World was just one part of a w...

Re: Rules that not in C&C. Could they be part of it?

As is well-known around here, I loathe pretty much everything 5e, but as I recall, with advantage/disadvantage you simply roll 2d20 and take the better or worse result depending upon whether you have advantage or disadvantage. Other games, like Shadow of the Demon Lord, have adopted variations of t...

Re: Hey There...

NICE, One thing I dislike about Aihrde is the fact they have what 4 or 5 separate cultural feels to the peoples there but only 1 set of deities and the deities don't match the cultures, so I've always kicked around the idea of adding other pantheons. However, I never thought of using the codexes as...

A bit of 'heresy'

As I have been rereading the material I have had a few ideas that I may pursue. They mostly revolve around Unklar. Just for fun I thought I would share them: Unklar was a lie While the empire did exist and did so for a long time; the story of Unklar was a pure fabrication. Part legend and part rally...

Re: Rules that not in C&C. Could they be part of it?

A brief list of what I remember using in the past at various times that are not added spells or monsters:

D20 style attribute modifiers

Advantage/Disadvantage

Target Number system instead of SIEGE

Spell Points

I'm sure there's more but I cannot recall right now.

It's still around though I don't know how good it is these days. As I mentioned before 2000 AD is back as well. I may check some local comic shops and see if I can get a better deal.

Incidentally the Netflix series Love, Death and Robots was rumored to have started as Heavy Metal 3.
