Re: Adventurers Backpack Errata

It looks like a lot of the pole arms didn't get marked as 'must be used with two hands' The table notes on ABP page 44 (as well as PHB page 63) explicitly state "Weapons marked with an * must be used two-handed." All the polearms are marked with an * in the Weapons Table. If we missed any, point th...

Re: 5E and C&C

Thanks for the move, finarvyn! I need to pay more attention to where I am these days before posting... Balance? I don't need no stinking balanced challenges! How will the players ever learn to run away if they don't face unbeatable foes once in a while? Mostly I like the 5E encounters because the op...

5E and C&C

Has anyone else run a 5E written adventure (TLG or otherwise) using just straight up C&C characters? I started this in July (2018) and it really has worked out well so far. My biggest gripe with 5E is the magic and that's easy enough to fix by adding in items and using the C&C magic system. I find t...

Re: Adventurers Backpack Errata

It looks like a lot of the pole arms didn't get marked as 'must be used with two hands'...as did the two handed sword, but hey, maybe it's only my players who contest such things. Also the zero level spell "Fish Song" appears in the cleric list, not in the druid list, though the spell description sa...

Re: Fantasy Writing

So I missed this thread back in August, much to my horror, as I do quite a bit of writing and actually have need of some advice. Let's say I was working on a fictionalized story covering the A series of modules, where would I post it? On 'The Crusades' board? I have ran various parts of the A series...

Re: Earth Elemental versus Iron Golem

Thanks for all of the input! I'll have to play it by ear and the suggestions given are good ones, I know I am going to implement something just to give the elemental creatures a chance against monsters needing magic to hit. It is a slippery slope, but this should not come up too often. I just need t...

Earth Elemental versus Iron Golem

The party druid is suffering in the high game and is struggling to become useful in the underground combats against 'need magic to hit' creatures like demons and golems. Would a Druid's earth elemental (from the 6th level "Summon Elemental" spell, 12 HD) be able to hit and damage an Iron Golem, whic...

Re: Perfect Recall - Rules question, Epic Level Play

Got it, I thought it might be something like that. Yeah, I do use the '1' is a failure home rule too, as '20' is always a success if a task can be done or a save can be made. My game is getting up into the low teens now, so I'm planning ahead a bit for what rules, exactly, to use. I still find the W...

Perfect Recall - Rules question, Epic Level Play

So the 'Perfect Recall' ability which kicks in a level 20 for a spell caster, states: At 20th level, spell casters can recall any previously cast 0-level spells at will. They must make a successful CL 0 prime attribute check to recall and cast the spell, and they can only recall a specific spell onc...

Re: DCC RPG

I got a license from Joe Goodman to create for the system. I was just trying to gauge who is playing. I have a Savage Worlds license, too. I've incorporated a few bits of DCC into C&C and I do buy supplements for that game; converting material is trivial so I am always looking for new ideas. You me...

Re: Knight's Inspire Ability and ideas for avoiding a TPK...

1. Can a Knights Inspire be used inconjuction with other actions or is it a Standard Action itself? 2. Any thoughts on how to save this from a TPK, I'm all for letting the dice fall where they may, would like to see something salvaged as this is their first adventure in years. W I'm GMing a knight ...
