How are you planning on running this? I.e., SKYPE, chat, play-by-post, etc.

Argh...sorry about that.

I was thinking about playing over Skype. Looking for four (4) players to play something that can hopefully be completed in one night.

One-Shot: Looking for test subjects...errr...players

<t>I am a new DM and am relatively new to C&C. I would like to run a one-shot on Saturday night just to get a sense of how things work in this system. I am looking for players who are (1) looking for a bit of fun and (2) would be willing to speak up to perhaps teach a new DM/CK when I go a littl...

Boston, MA - Anyone playing C&C in the area?

<t>Any C&C players in the area? I would love to hook up with a group. Please feel free to drop me a PM if you are in the MA/New England area and are looking for another C&C'r.<br/> <br/> Ironically, despite the fact that we have a lot of local game stores in the area, C&C is not at all p...

Paizo: Experience with GameMastery adventures?

I'm sure I'm late to the party on this one, but the production value of these just look awesome. Plus, its nice to see that Paizo is still dedicated to turning out adventures. Anyone looked at these or checked out what appears to be their new adventure path?

Balancing Encounters - How to do it?
