Re: What Video Game(s) are you playing

I've been playing the original Might & Magic over the last few months. I had forgotten what a difficult grind it is. I remember that one, and being pleased when I finished it. Then I remember getting M&M2 and doing the towns a but then I step outside and got TPK, I thought wtf this is game ...

That's kind of a mind f*8k, my sympathy for the drama. I get your reaction to change your handle, hopefully you find one that fits (because of course Rhuvein was/is pretty damn good.)

Re: The C&C rule(s) you dislike or ignore...

I removed the save and just treat the Illusionist as more of a Psionicist. I like the class and the spelllist so it was easy and worked well.

I use Class and Half rules from the PHB. No full multi class. I prefer the dominate class archetype.

Re: Quick!

Xercrex: 7th Level Illusionist (Human Female) was the driving force in in throwing down the TOEE (C&C Converted). She favored mind control and manipulation tactics, she built up her own band of henchman along the way. She tuned out to be a lot fun to run.

Re: innovation to help games run smoother

Honestly getting rid of initiative. With C&C 10 secs rounds it was an easy hand wave to call everything simultaneous. Didn't really change any outcomes and it sped up combat.

Re: Quench spell & magic candles ?

Love Quench :), I've never had to rule on that specific call but I would lean towards allowing it based on the level of Quench and how in the Druid's wheel house that would be.

I've run the Temple under C&C and I pretty much used it as is. The XP charts of AD&D and C&C are pretty close so nothing should be off there. I will say that taking it "all the way" and trying to get into where the Demoness is caged is not a good idea :). A party can have a suc...

Re: Ethereal Plane

Yes spell damage hits them. Don;t over think it, magic is magic. When you go down the fireball creates fire, you get into modern physics and chemistry and that is the road to madness in a fantasy game. Keep it simple, is it a spell? then it's magic.
