Re: Changes you would make to C&C

Change the experience points required for class progression to more closely match 1st and 2nd edition AD&D.

Re: Pathfinder After C&C

Although I like the fact that Pathfinder has a lot of options, the overabundance of options can lead to a lot of min-maxing if the GM doesn't step in and put limits on things. Perhaps that's the reason I like Castles & Crusades - you can make a character without having to think about taking the opti...

Re: Doomsday..

I want to see more monsters, classes, and spells. That is to say more "crunch". NPCs and background are nice, but too much setting specific information and 'fluff' makes it difficult to fit into my campaign.

Re: Alternate human benefit instead of a bonus prime attribu

I thought about giving all humans a 10% bonus to xp. That would reflect humans being quicker to learn and adapt to new situations ].

Re: Would 2e AD&D kits work for C&C?

The problem with kits was that they varied so much in scope and quality. Some simply mildly changed the focus of the class (such as giving a extra proficiency slot in return for role-play restriction). Others gave several special abilities and powers that completely changed the class into something ...

Re: Tales from the Table: How Are You Using/Planning to Use

After our group finishes our Shadowrun game, I plan to run Planescape with Castles & Crusades. I thought about using the 3.5 rules, but with so many splatbooks for 3.5 I figured it would be easier to make characters using Castles & Crusades.

Re: What is kosher and what is not with regards to fan mater

Actually, on a related note this thread got me wondering if I can make and publish fan material with non-SRD monsters (i.e. Mind Flayer', Beholder's etc.) . Could I include very statistically similar monsters if they are not a wholesale copy of WotC's intellectual property? For example, could I incl...

Re: Level advancement

I personally never liked the slow level advamcement. While I don't think each session should be about obtaining 'cool new powers', I don't like the idea of playing a years long campaign. Unfortunately, with real life taking over, neither I nor the people I game with have the time to devote to a mass...

Re: Will the color Monsters & Treasure have a new layout?

I just hope they stop using a picture of a bipedal donkey in place of a Gnome! :lol:
Yeah, I never understood why the picture of the gnome had a snout and long ears. Maybe some people picture a gnome like that, but not me.

Re: Will the color Monsters & Treasure have a new layout?

I'm also wondering if we'll see knew artwork. I love Peter Bradely's sketches for Monsters & Treasure, but I can't help but thinking that some monsters might look better with different artwork. Also, will we see a different picture of the Night Hag? The picture on page 46 of Monsters and Treasures a...

Re: Players Handbook Six

I don't want to see a huge amount of rule changes. If certain rules need to be clarified, then I'm all for it, but I don't want to see major differences in the way classes and races play. That said, some things that I would like to see: 1. More spells for the Wizard and Illusionist - There are quite...

Crusader's Companion...?

I downloaded a copy of the Crusader's Companion and found it to be an awesome fan-created resource. However, I noticed that pages 241 to 276 were blank (right in the middle of the monster section). I'm wondering about the reason for this. Is this a formatting error, or are more monsters going to be ...

Converting AD&D Settings to C&C

I'm a big fan of many of the old AD&D 2e settings such as Ravenloft, Planescape, and Spelljammer. I've been thinking of doing an "fan-conversion" of the settings to Castles & Crusades rules for a while. If I were to do an unofficial conversion, I'd like to release it as a pdf for other C&C gamers to...

Secondary Skills for C&C (2e NWP)

I've been thinking of adding secondary skills to the game for a while. However, none of the methods presented in the CKG really appeal to me. What I'm thinking of resembles AD&D 2nd Edition's Non-Weapon Proficiencies. Characters don't buy ranks in skills like in 3e (too complicated and time consumin...
