Re: non-Vancian magic

I did something for a shot time how Treebore mentions above as well as coming up with rolling to cast. In the end I went back to vancian I find I actually like it as well as the flavor of it. Spell points just don't work for me I don't like spell point systems in any game I've encountered them in. I...

Does it matter if the product is good? I no little to nothing about the author but the setting seems decent.

Re: Suprise?

If you don't roll for surprise, then barbarians don't ever get to use their +2 bonus from combat sense. Good riddance. Barbarians suck and should discouraged from existing. Strangely I normally feel the same as barbarian is a culture not a class. In this instance I think that TL got it right for my...

Re: He slammed C&C.

Getting offended over everything is the way many people are today. And if you disagree with those people then you are a narrow minded hateful bigot. These people usually won't have a thoughtful debate as their minds are already made up they just want to argue.

Re: How do you make a Playable Rogue?

Less combat more exploration. Fighting is a waste of resources the best thing is only fight if you have to. Use the Rogue thief to trick the creature away from the treasure and hide. While the monster is away the rest of the group can steal the treasure. The Rogue thief can hide as a scout and warn ...

Re: Quick Question concerning Class-based NPCs

Just a suggestion: Don't use traditional class-based NPCs. It's too much work as a GM. Instead, treat every NPC like a monster, but give some of them class abilities. For example, instead of statting out a 4th level dwarf fighter, use a 4 HD dwarf that has a +4 BtH specializing in hammer for an ext...

Re: House rules how much do you use? do they change often?

I have come up with some house rules mostly around the math (setting base); Rejiggering AC/BtH/Monster CL, etc. to keep the % chance smoother and numbers lower. My Base starts at 10, and the modifier for non-prime/prime is set by level and recorded on the character sheet for the player to handle. T...

House rules how much do you use? do they change often?

As the topic states. I know some have their house rules linked in their signatures. But for others do you have a lot of house rules? I try to keep mine to a minimum -- no more than one page if possible,unlike when I ran ad&d back in the day I had more than one pages worth. With OD&D and C&C I can us...

Re: Expanding Classes (C&C)

No minions. What Class Plus allows is a normal classed character that has some of the base abilities of another (previous) class. These extra abilities come at an increased experience point cost of the primary class, but the abilities of the other class never increase (always remain at 0-level). Th...

So I'm dipping my toe into the C&C side of the pool after a long time away from C&C (stopped around 2010 and was using the 3rd print of the PHB). Mostly been running white box OD&D since. But I know some of my players tend to prefer more "advanced" so back to C&C for a bit and see how it goes.A lot ...
