Re: Greyhawk - A 1980 Darlene inspired recreation!

Looks awesome! I'm looking for a WoG map to use in play. Hard to find online, and really pricey.

Re: Cthulhu sale

Never tried any Cthulhu stuff. Your MoRD was great. Cthulhu sounds a bit too much horror for me.

I liked the Last Kingdom series a lot. How are Cornwell's other books so far?

Re: My failure at a horror game

Failure? Not a chance Les. You put a lot of thought into the level of detail and it really showed. Had a lot of fun with it. Would love to pick it up again at some point.

Re: Monday night Ne’er Do Wells Siege Masque of the Red Death

Hate to do this on the first night of play, but I'm out tonight. Been feeling rotten all day. I'll try to post a character on Discord later this week for OSR to look over.

Re: C&C Adventures located in Greyhawk?

Sounds awesome. I've inserted a few one off's into my Greyhawk campaign, mostly as filler between modules. I'm running my son through a bunch of old AD&D modules already set in Greyhawk. 576 was the start of my timeline as well.

I like the "firefly" idea. A mix of trader/spy/merc. Assuming I don't die in character creation, I have an idea of what direction I want to go in. :)

Re: Worst fantasy movie ...

The LOTR films had a sense of care and passion behind them - the Hobbit trilogy by comparison felt like a bloated cash-out. If LOTR had never existed, maybe the Hobbit would've gotten a better reception? Same could be said for the Star Wars prequels. . . I seriously dislike the Hobbit films. Just a...

Open Discussion might be the best place here. Not to drive traffic away from this site, but there may be a place on the Trolls Discord channel where you would get more looks. Might be worth a try.

Re: Invisible scout

Well in this case, the goal was to get this gem. They knew the danger. Good thing is the rogue is an NPC that I'm playing and not either of my son's characters. He's been pretty clever so far, so I suspect the wizard that sent them on the quest will figure something out for them.

Re: Light Spell

I'd say sure it is possible. Something like have the caster make an int (or Wis if a cleric) base attack. If it hits then the spell is placed correctly on the end of the target's noes and it is now at a negative to hit. A crit puts it in its eye and blinds the target. Isn't there a blinding flash s...

Re: Light Spell

Do you let mages and cleric perfectly put a spell just where they want... think magic missile perfect or any spell centered area to get the bad and just miss the good? So if you do not force some sort of magic spell to hit... then do not do it here. Does the other guy get a save to not have it be i...

Are you also asking about the raise dead? I love letting PCs that die, and the player wants to, play them get raised or reincarnated easily... I think 7th or 9th level NPC should be pretty common (ok, out there). If they do not have a "will" in advance, that's what speak with dead is all about. Mak...

Light Spell

No doubt this has been covered before, but I couldn't find it in a search, so here goes. Can a Light spell be cast directly into the eyes of an opponent, blinding them temporarily? I know you could in OD&D, but can't in 1E. The C&C spell description doesn't say either way. My son asked about it in l...
