Re: Any chance of an unflipped flip book?

I've requested a black and white PDF of the PHB before, so you can ask and see what they are willing to do. I needed it for a player who is legally blind, and needed a B/W PDF so they could invert colors etc.... to make it so they could read it. Thanks for the suggestion Tree, sending them an email...

Re: Any chance of an unflipped flip book?

All three might be a bit much for a single book for me. I like the less expensive softcover all in one book as long as it's durable. Heck, I wouldn't mind just printing out the PHB and M&T books, putting the pages in page protectors and sticking the whole thing in a 3 ring binder. Or maybe I'll do t...

Any chance of an unflipped flip book?

I like using the flip book, though I think its utility could be increased by just having it be a normal book. If any of the troll lords are listening, one day, just make a normal all in one book. That is all!

Re: Crickets chirping

Right now, I'm running my friends through C&C's Dark Journey to get the hang of running a game. In the 30 years or so I've been playing, I've run only a couple of games. Anyways, after that. Going to have them roll new characters and start them on a hex crawl in Rob Conley's Blackmarsh. I'm thinking...

Not playing, but would love to. Starting a dungeon crawl game using CC for my friends. First time CK:) Heck, I've hardly have GM'd anything over the past (almost) 30 years. I'll see about starting up some AA at some point.

Dark Jourwhat ney- Crisigrim's home- where would you put it?

This is the module I'm strongly leaning towards running for my friends. I plan on using Aihrde, and was wondering what some good locations were for Crisigrim's dungeon.

Also the BBC show staring Sean Bean as Sharpe are great fun as well. I've seen one of those- Sharpe's Gold, and thought ...

I am aware of it now! Thanks Tree :) Just picked up 11 modules for $15 and change shipped. Oh, wow! I had assumed you were already aware of it due to your other thread. I guess now it was simply coincidence! Glad it made your choices so much easier! Very fortuitous of you to post that! I thank you:)

What do you consider are the essential C&C modules?

Trying to slowly grab some C&C modules as I can. Doing research, I see that Assault on Blacktooth Ridge, Rising Knight and Mortality of Green are liked, so I picked those up. What modules do folks here think best represent C&C and are must haves?

Ugh, I totally hate it. For the same exact reasons that RunningLaser gave, it's awful. I never read past the first book in the series because it was a total LOTR ripoff. That was before I knew the backstory behind the publication of the Iron Tower Trilogy. Still, I can't recommend it as you'll be c...

Re: Has anyone read Iron Tower Trilogy by Dennis L. McKierna

Slimy- I have and I enjoyed it greatly. Let me say the following though- it is Lord of the Rings. You can read about why he wrote it the way he did online. IIRC, the first book was supposed to be a sequel to LoTR, but it didn't fly. Another publishing company liked it, so he rewrote things . In fact...
