North Texas RPGCon 2017 Roomie Quest

Hi guys, putting it out there - if anyone needs a room in Dallas for the NTX '17 convention I have one booked with two twin beds and would be happy to split it with someone. The convention is June 1-4. I'll be going up the 31st to help BadMike with setting up but that doesn't mean others have to com...

Re: Flipbook OOP?

I think the flipbook is a sort of novelty product like the digests that gets printed occasionally for cons or kickstarters or whenever the whim strikes TLG, and not a permanent part of the product lineup. Very convenient though. That's too bad, it's my main rulebook. I'm hoping the whim strikes mor...

Flipbook OOP?

Just getting ready to do a new Ol' Man Grognard Reviews video on C&C and I notice the C&C Flipbook is no longer on the site. Will it return? I hope so, it's my favorite and I think I'll need a replacement.

Re: Worst fantasy movie ...

My problem is I like bad movies (being a huge fan of MST3K doesn't help). I like the first D&D movie because it's bad. Jeremy Irons and the guy with blue lips makes it worth it. Such glorious ham and cheese on the screen! And Richard O'Brien! Ice Pirates is high on my stink-o-meter. Also (thank you ...

Re: Petty Gods HC

Glad you liked the book Treebore. I still have to get me a copy, seeing as a few of my art pieces are in there.

And yes, Old Snicker is very much an active god in my campaign world. :mrgreen:

Re: The C&C Journal/notebook

Yeah, I'm gonna have to agree on the lower price-point (I use a fresh book for each campaign so at the current cost it'd get pricey after a while). Also, yes, grid paper instead of lined. Way more versatile. I usually go to Staples and pick up a composition book. They have them gridded for a decent ...

Re: Are you running a regular face to face C&C game

HAIL yes! I run a Monday night C&C game in Bluffside. We're getting ready to finish a story arc on The Isle of Dread. We're thinking of taking a break for a couple months and play another system then it's back to Bluffside.

A highlight from the 4/11/16 Castles and Crusades Monday game: The crew headed for The Isle of Dread and ran into a Sea Hydra with 4 heads along the way. Now the crew have air rifles and other contraptions as befitting a steampunk-ish fantasy game. The cleric loads a rifle with a magic stone which p...

Highlights From The Bluffside Monday Group

I run a C&C group of four who are in the Bluffside area (which I placed in my campaign world of Erf). They're off to rescue a steam gnome wizard who was captured by pirates. Some highlights from the 4/4/2016 game: The group making it to Bluffside proper and using the steam gnome elevators to get to ...

I'd check and see if Bluffside was added to the campaign world and then become a Steam Gnome Mage.
