Re: Amazons (please help)

Serleran,

I have always liked the Diablo II classes. Do you have write ups for the other character classes?

Re: Star Wars Victorious

Building the characters in the Star Wars Movie should be different than 1st level starting characters to play a fresh game.

Re: How do you make a Playable Rogue?

[I like the idea of making the BtH to 1/2. It then matches the thief from 2nd AD&D. They ought to be superior than a wizard in a slugfest after all.

Re: How do you make a Playable Rogue?

I do not like how C&C represents the Rogue character class. I increase the BtH to 1/2 and the HD to 1d8. I find that these changes do not adversely effect the other classes but make the Rogue a better contributor to the party. I do favor heavy combat games although I place emphasis on skill use also...

The hit dice of the Rune Mark class is supposed to be d6. The author did say they meant the first level to be d8 and the rest d6, but no other classes work like that and the Wizard has only a d4.

Omote,

It works well, but honestly I will be using C&C and AA for my Lone Wolf campaign. I will incorporate some skills and powers into the campaign. In addition, I will use Victorious to create some of Magnamund's monsters.

Yes, both classes would need some refinement to truly reflect the books, but Victorious worked well to create the Lone Wolf Classes. It will be harder to draft the Magician of Dessi and the Vakeros Warrior-Mage. These two classes were not presented consistently between the Mongoose and Cubicle 7 gam...
