My unusual single dice roll random character generation technique

So this method is meant to create more powerful characters than rolling 3d6 down the line or 4d6 drop lowest, but also keep the characters random but balanced against each other. And for a CK that does not want to use this method with players, you may still find it useful for making random NPCs with...

Re: Time Tracking

For rounds, I use a big novelty die where everybody can see it, and I roll it down by 1 each round. For tracking longer periods of time, like hours I use a 3x5 card. I mark the margins 1-12 to represent the hours of the day, and make columns of AM/PM. This allows me to track time in 10-minute interv...

Castles & Crusades Reforged?

So I came back to the boards after a long absence because I saw something about an upcoming Kickstarter for Castles & Crusades: Reforged, which, among other things, has stripped out OGL material from it. I am looking forward to seeing the PDF (you can get it for free a couple days before their K...

Re: Castles & Crusades question - Perception

I would let barbarians and rangers add their level bonus, too. But otherwise that seems fine to me.

Re: 3.5 Tome of Battle

I loved Tome of Battle when it first came out, so much so that I started a short campaign just so my players would use it (the campaign had a very weird rule that no classes from the PHB were allowed, so there were several ToB characters). That said, I think you *might* be able to adapt the maneuver...

Re: New but also returning (AKA Converting early D&D modules to C&C)

Hey, I came by here to learn more about C&C Reforged, but saw this thread and thought I might contribute my 2 coppers. This was in response to a request at the Goodman Games forums almost 20 years ago, but a lot of the information I paste here should still be applicable to the OP's request: Hell...

Re: [Kickstarter] BASH! Product: Awesome Powers

Not at present; the production cost was quite high making it full color; adding hardcover would have made the price too high for too many people. Someday I can see making a "Premium" edition with all the bells and whistles like that as a very limited release for those who are interested in...

The core mechanic is roll 2d6 + Quality + Career for non-combat actions. 2d6 + Quality + Combat Ability for Combat actions. If the result is 9 or greater (after modifiers) the action succeeds.
