Re: Tome of the Unclean

Thanks for checking. i am not expecting much. this whole project should have been more important and the fact the monsters are being called weak is real disappointment.

Re: Tome of the Unclean

Thanks for the update. It appears no changes will be made to the demons and devils. I might pick it up to be a completest...

Not seeing a reason to buy a book that i have to modify to use, already doing that with old monster books that have demons.

Re: Fantasy Earth?

At least myself and one other on this site run C&C on a mystic earth type setting. I cant believe no one mentioned the Codex's The Celtic Codex covers the British isles Erie and some of mainland Europe. The Nordic Codex covers the vikings. 3 more are due out soon. Slavic, Germanic and Greek/Roman.

Captain K, What really got me to using good old earth was "why create legends and myths" The real world is full of them. I can look up real topographical maps for mapping. the 1st ed AD&D MM makes alot more sense with its real world notes on monsters. (see Rakshasha for example) WHy re invent the wh...

Re: What current setting do you use for your C&C games?

Captain K damn near hit my world on the head.

I call it Mythic Earth. it is set in the 8th century, with Rome sacked and diminished.
I use real world maps and myths and draw heavily from the codex's and everything from HackMaster to PathFinder.

Re: What's the highest level you've played using C&C?

Last campaign i ran, ended with all the characters ascending. levels ranged from 20 to 27.

Re: Favorite Critical Hit Systems?

I have found using the mass combat rules from Fields of Battle works for lots of low level opponents.
It is very similar to the "mook" rules shown above, but it is C&C tested.

I dont care how high of level you are, an army of goblins should make the PC's worry.

Someone with the subscription, how far along is this? is there a tentative release date yet?
I haven't seen anything about this project in months.
