Re: Android App - GM Toolkit

Yes, I have to agree that this is a brilliant tool.
I paid for the GURPS template some time ago and it saw a lot of use at our games table.

Re: Wil Wheaton's favorite Indie RPGs

I'd love to see Wil do a video of a C&C game being run. Not sure if he does that. I've not followed his YouTube stuff before. Actually he has ... he did a 2-part video where Chris Pramas was running Dragon Age for Wil, Chris Hardwick, Kevin Sussman, and Sam Witwer. "TableTop Episode 19 pt. 1" http:...

Re: Anti-Undead Deity

Toth is the one who most readily springs to mind. As the Val-Eahrakun with oversight of Magic, Knowledge and Death; he sees the Undead as an abomination. Something that is outside of the natural cycle of life and death. Well, that's how I run his church in my campaign. The priests and wardens of his...

Re: TLG 8126 Codex of Aihrde (Preorder)

Taking that thought further, what about Mordain and Thorax?? According to the canon material, Mordain was slain by Thorax Red Bull before he himself was slain by Corthain. Does that mean that they're not really dead, just currently out of touch? I kinda like that idea and it meshes in with something...

Re: 1 arrow per round: is there nonetheless a penalty?

Just off the top of my head, how about: Make a DEX Seige check against the enemy AC; you fire one arrow plus one for every 4 you pass the check by. Maximum number of arrows is 1 plus your DEX modifier. Example: you have a Dex of 16 (+2) so you can potentially shoot 3 arrows. Against a goblin with AC...

Damage is done as a save and is taken against a damage track (separate tracks for lethal and non-lethal). Characters receive a Core Ability plus 4 feats at 1st level.

Obviously there is a bit of conflict with Class Skills in this, so I would have to change things up to fit C&C's rules about Class Skills versus people outside of those skills stepping on them.
