Re: Castles & Crusades Reforged?

I'm with Persimmon on this one. I want to support the Trolls, but I can't justify another PHB/M&T/CKG.

Slight tangent - Goodman Games are shutting their forum down; so if you have anything you want saved either download the data or get WaybackMachine to grab each page you want (it doesn't crawl the site, you have to get each page manually).
What's their reasoning?

Re: Your dream campaign

I'd run something similar to what Anacalgon referred to above. World of Greyhawk using many of the old 1E modules with other stuff (Frog God, Advanced Adventures, etc) thrown in.

Hey! Welcome to the forum. My campaign doesn't take place in Aihrde, but I'm sure some of the other regular posters can help out. Just stopped by to say hello.

Cool. I'll find a way to incorporate some of this when the party in my campaign next returns to the City of Greyhawk.

Agreed, and I haven't in quite some time. I do use legos and brick figures instead of minis though. There's some cool stuff out there.

RIP Jim Ward

Jim Ward passed away yesterday. I haven't seen any specifics yet, although I know he was scheduled to run games at GaryCon. Sad news, I'll remember his work fondly, particularly Deities & Demigods.

Do you need a command word to operate a Wand? I know in AD&D you do, but the description in the M&T doesn't mention it. This came up in my game yesterday. The wielder was under the effect of a Silence spell but wanted to use a wand. Thoughts? I like using "Abracadaver" as the comm...

Thanks guys. I had played it out where the wand worked even with the silence in effect. In retrospect I probably would rule the other way, but it played out well and a lot of suspense and fun were had.
