Re: Permanency & Con saving throw

Our house role was Wizards can only have X number of permanencies, where X is caster level. So an 18th level Wizard can have up to 18 permanent spells active across all things. (This does not count magic item enchantment that required a permanency). So you kit out your castle with 4 or 5 spells. You...

Re: 5E Type spellcasing Bard fro C&C?

The 1e bard was a hot mess. One started as a fighter for 5 levels, then a thief for 5 levels, then actually become a bard with druid spells. I would actually suggest using the paladin/ranger spell progression (no spells till L9). The hottest mess ever! 1ed bard best bard :) I've used class-n-half B...

At the risk of being a wet blanket.. is the setting worth $65?
Fair question.. It's a dense book. It's really environs around Castle Greyhawk the Castle, in great detail. IF settings are your thing it would be a good resource.

Re: Rule about C&C multi-class I have never understood

Yes 1d6 in the case of Fighter / Wizard. Yes you lose out a little bit compared to rolling both and dividing by 2. Adding +1 would fix the range in this case so you might wanted to looks and the possible ranges of the combos and make a house rule. On the other hand multi-class is a huge power jump. ...

Well it's survived many deaths so far. I for one am glad that Bifford volunteered to be point on the Forum. But as I've demonstrated from the beginning, I will always step in when doom has been announced. So as long TLG keeps paying the hosting billing this forum will keep going.

Re: Use of Nets

Got me wondering about this so I went all the way back Gygax D2 - Shrine of the Kuo-Toa because I know they used nets... Sadly no specific mechanic is listed there either. So my gut is, roll to hit (touch attack) then save vs (Dex) to avoid entangle.

Re: Homebrew system for illusionist healing spells

No downside... Illusionists are fun in C&C they scream to be played. I personally just threw away the entire save on healing stuff. I see Illusionists as the C&C Psychic or Psionicist class and don't sandbag them with the extra junk.
