Re: Where are you in the A-series?

Hey any word if there are more Aufstrag levels to be released past 2016's super box "Umbrage Saga Part 3"? They had the first 5 of 21 (!) levels in there, hoping it won't be too many years before another release.

Darkenfold series

Think there will be a C8 or is C7 Castle on the Hill the end? Feels like it's the finale.
I wish there were a few more details on cities in the Darkenfold map, some of the C modules refer to places I can't position. And weird to go to End's Meet and back again to where you started in C3...

Re: The 'filler' Illusionist Spells...why are they there

Look at the 1st-3rd printings of the PHB and you'll see that those "filler" spells aren't there. They were added in the 4th printing and on for exactly that reason, to fill up the list so that they had the same amount of spells that wizards have. Interesting point, thanks for the info. I ...

Re: The 'filler' Illusionist Spells...why are they there

Hey gang, I think my point is there seem to be spells in certain levels iust because TLG wanted to get a certain number of spells listed. If they just listed 12 spells per level for 1-5 and say 10 spells per level for 6-9, we’d have a lot less filler spells like “Doubled Treasure” that no one is goi...

The 'filler' Illusionist Spells...why are they there

Talking PHB...one small complaint I have about it is the 'filler' Illusionist spells that are in there, clearly just to either have fun or to make sure there's an even 20 or 12 number of spells. Say you roll randomly for spells every level or two, like my character does (to encourage use of spells y...

Re: Detect Thoughts spell

ya thanks - I realise the !e connection to C&C (one of the reasons we're playing it), but have been playing a lot of Basic recently and loved that too. Your comment on the actual spell description v. the spell lists blurb is interesting, we're going with listening to surface thoughts, as determi...

Detect Thoughts spell

Hey as per the 7th printing PH, this would allow you to read surface thoughts right? Not just detect the presence of surface thoughts? Was thinking it’s like Basic D&D ESP

Re: Alter Self

I thought I had made a list of humanoids (at least those in M&T) in the Engineering Dungeons book... but I haven't looked. Not sure if I also had them added to the CKG or not, but in either case, if present, would not include anything after M&T (so no Classic Monsters, new stuff in newer M&...

Re: Alter Self

Hey years later but thought I'd go on the same thread, we'll see if that was the right decision:) Is there a list of humanoids somewhere for easy reference on this spell (not easily laid out in M&T). And I read that it means you can go up or down one "size" - but since C&C only has...

Re: Creating New Spells per CKG etc. - clarification

Thanks @Captain_K. I've invented a spell in BECMI under house rules (what else was there) but looking forward to digging deep with this character in C&C rules...should be fun.

Creating New Spells per CKG etc. - clarification

Running an Illusionist in our gang's first C&C campaign and having a blast. Wanted to ask about creating new spells, as seen in P. 293-295 of the CKG. My character is only 3rd level but wanted to create spells that are already listed in the Players' Handbook. I was assuming that create 'new' spe...
