Re: Pre-Gens in Character Sheets?

I'll keep an eye out for your spreadsheet. I did check the KoTCS site, but apparently my browser was acting up, I didn't see any, but now on a different computer I do...I"ll check them out.

Thanks for replying!

Pre-Gens in Character Sheets?

Just need some pre-gens to run a one shot, preferrably in character sheets. I purchased Druid's Lament from DriveThruRPG (I missed it on the FreeRPG day it was released) as I heard it had some in it. Unfortunately, the downloaded character sheet PDFs in the product are blank. I can fill out the shee...

Re: Book Updates

Thanks everyone! I was very unclear in my original email, sorry about that. I meant PDF (or just a website for that matter) of the changes between printings...I think the errata will probably offer what is necessary so they can use my old books. Hopefully they'll like the game well enough they'll sp...

Call it Presence like in the Hero game...then you can use if for intimidation, etc.

Book Updates

Pardon if this has been asked and answered a lot... I was thinking of starting a new campaign using C&C, most of my players don't have books, but I seem to have aquired quite a few, but different editions. I was thinking I'd just give everyone of my players my old books (1st printing). Is there a PD...

Re: Wastage Rules.

Seems like that would only work once before the players get pissed at the GM...sort of like the imp that grants a wish and you twist the wish...every imp after that offers a wish will be killed on sight.

Better to be stingy with magical items than Santa Claws( <intended>). :)

Re: The World of Aihrde Kickstarter has launched!

Question, I did the pre-order bundle back in May 2012, I believe at the time, it was going to be one book. Will I get both books now, or if not, which one will I get?

Re: I'm confused...

I added extra money to one of the other KS projects to get the codex... Do I get the one that would be produced with this current (upcoming) KS? That's what I was assuming because I missed the preorder and I already have the old (orange spine) codex. I was under the impression that that KS addon wa...

Re: Judges Guild City State Kick Starter

As a backer, I am not bothered by it as I don't see KS as a pre-purchase but a patron of the arts type thing. I have a number of KS projects I backed and some of them have had issues delaying things and as long as they're active/updating, I'm forgiving. I set my expectations before I back so I'm not...

Looking for group. :)

I didn't see a good forum for this... I recently moved to the Greece, NY area and was looking to start a group. I prefer to GM, and I have most all the Castles and Crusades as well as an embarrassingly large RPG collection. I've tried some of the typical locations to 'look for group', such as Nearby...

Well, since they were having such a big sale, I bought A7-A9, C1-C2, D1, I1-I3, U1-U3, S1-S4, DB1-DB6, DA1, plus a few other...some of the numbering were a little odd...but I think that's all of them...

So..thanks for pointers, it gives me some direction on what to read.

If so, where does this adventure take place in Aihrde? If not, maybe someone else who has run the module can answer that (don't have my copy on me).
Aihrde near Blacktooth Ridge area.

So, my players have been sneaking around the Slag Heap, they killed off all the harpies and made friends with the sprites and fae. When they found that the "evil" gnomes were eating sprites, they left them to fae justice (which is to say there was a fire.) They cleared out the ghouls and finally con...

Re: Rules Questions...

Forgot to mention. If you withdraw from an oppent i give the oppent a free swing. That tends to discourage the players from trying to end run. Also if they somehow do manage to run around an unengaged foe...the foe turns to meet them as they advance for free. If it aint from surprise you just dont ...

Re: Rules Questions...

I just flat out dont allow people to break away and run behind. Now if you have an ally keeping them busy, then by all means get behind them. Use common sense turns are asymetrical which causes issues like this. Just think could it happen in real life? Ever see a fencer sprint around his oppent and...

Re: Rules Questions...

Ah, I was confusing it all with D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder, taking flanking to be when opposite side from an ally and doesn't really have facing rules. I realized that my question about movement may be moot because you can only move 1/2 your movement and attack from the rear each turn and only the faste...

Re: Rules Questions...

So two questions, if you're flanking and in the rear, do you get +3 (+1 for flanking, +2 for rear attack?) Do you have an issue with people constantly running around to the back of the person to get a rear attack bonus when it's just one on one combat and the terrain allows for it? Do you consider t...

Re: Rules Questions...

Thanks for the feedback... Regarding Spells: I knew it was a rule in Pathfinder, but didn't see anything in the PHB, thought there might be something in the CKG that I haven't had a chance to read yet. I like the rule that they can, so I'll leave that call as is, slightly expanded per the responses....
