Re: Why C&C?

I came to C&C after not having gamed since the early 2E years. I was working out of town for an extended period of time and thought playing "D&D" over the phone with my son would help with me being away. I had bought the basic 3E books, but really didn't want to get into all the e...

Re: Rules that not in C&C. Could they be part of it?

Since C&C is based on d20 D&D, you can add that stuff in easily. It won't effect your game immensely. I do an attribute score increase at every 4 levels. It works fine.

Re: One class and a half question and rules for 0-Level Wizards

It has no 0-level rules, but IIRC the PHB has rules for what you get from class-and-a-half casting classes at level 1 (casting class zero). I believe it's point 7 in the class-and-a-half rules. According to the PHB, a 0 level casting class gets 2 0 level spells. But I'd still allow the bonus spell ...

In C&C, a 0 level wizard would only have access to bonus spells for having a high attribute. Really? Does C&C have 0 level class rules? [edit] I searched and found none in the PHB. Did you just post a house rule in answer to the question|? Sort of. I don't use either option for multiclassin...

In C&C, a 0 level wizard would only have access to bonus spells for having a high attribute. Example: A fighter 1/wizard 0 with an Int of 16, would have 2 cantrips and 1 1st level spell. When the character gained fighter 2/wizard 1, it would have 4 cantrips and 3 1st level spells (2 for being 1s...

Re: So what world setting do you typically run C&C in?

I've used Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Kingdoms of Kalamar for long term C&C games. I used the 4e setting (Nentir Vale) for a 5e game a ran. I liked that setting. I had a unique feel, while still being fimaliar.
