Where are all of jokes about Rings of Immunity to Skidmarks? Trousers of Fecal Resistance +4? Under-linens of Absorption? Anti-Menstruation Fields? Or even just a good old Codpiece of Holding?

3 Class C&C idea

<t>An idea that has always appealed to me is only allowing three classes. A presentation of this idea was made in the d20 Unearthed Arcana book. The big problem with it is that it is nearly impossible to really accomplish in the third edition. I think that C&C is the perfect playground for this....

<t>I have found that if you run C&C skills in a specific way then the fighter needs very little adjustment. If you run skills so that EVERYBODY and TRY anything (a fighter picking locks for example) and just use the class skills as bonuses then things work great. In cases where it would be very ...

Hello, fellow Missourian. I am about 45 minutes south of St. Louis as the Ford flys. It is the Jefferson County government seat. We have wonderful scenery with the jail right next to the high school, makes for convenient transit for current students.

This isn't particularly SIEGE-like but in cases such as that I do an old fashioned stat check (roll D20, apply on the fly modifiers, if total is less than the stat then the check succeeded.) I would still use C&C stuff for the animated critters though.
