Hopefully, they're able to get them to Gen Con! Sounded like it was going to be close!

Re: GenCon 2014

If any C&C fans want to hang out or swap lies, I'm steering as much of my gaming circle as possible to the TLG booth. It'd be nice to chat with other C&C fans and CKs. Going to be a great time! Just under a week to go...

Re: Final 2 weeks for Storyteller's Thesaurus Kickstarter!

I made sure I set my $25 aside over and above my Gen Con budget. I didn't need accidentally spend the money for the KS on even more dice or (another) foam sword. :)

Re: New PHB6 (it's on the way)

I'm not worried about 5e, just as I was not about 4e, or even 3.5. These games offer what they offer and people who are aware of them and like them will be drawn to them, just as they would have been. In fact, their existence is a positive thing... when people become disenfranchised with them, they...

Re: I am now to the point . . .

I see no issue in happily using books from the AD&D DMG to the Hackmaster GM's Guide with C&C. It all works with very little effort.

But yes, right now, I think I'd rather run C&C than Rules Cyclopedia D&D, and that's saying something. :)

Re: Classic Monsters and Of Gods and Monsters...

Classic Monsters is a tremendous book. It's such a great resource for the Castle Keeper--and provides a steady stream of not just challenging monsters, but really interesting ones--to throw at a gaming group. There are plenty of classic beasties included, of course, as the name might suggest. :)

This might sound like damning with faint praise, but that's not my intention. After reading through Traveller 5, I can't imagine why I had any trouble understanding StarSiege. Yeah, I did not hear good things about Traveller 5's presentation. It's a good thing I have Classic and Mongoose Traveller....

I lost my 2010 Quick Start Rules at some point (one of our two moves), so I ordered another one from a third-party seller. I told my daughter it'll be hers to learn before we start a new 1-on-1 campaign. :)

I am however planning on running another demo session there soon to try to convert some people to C&C, and hopefully get my store to carry TLG stuff. Very cool. I think C&C is such an easy game to demo, ...

Re: RPGnet has Prime Questions

The default rule is one cannot even roll if the ability belongs to another class. IF the GM is generous and allows the fighter to try and pick a lock, then no level bonus is allowed. Well, it says it's recommended he not be allowed. Whether it is allowed is not so much a matter of CK generosity but...
