<r>I spend about 25% of my time in Toronto these days. Probably not good enough for a regular campaign, but I'd be happy to meet up with some Toronto-area C&C folks for some discussion (perhaps over coffee or beer), and possibly a one-shot adventure, at some point.<br/> <br/> I'll be back in the...

Cool. Freeport is a great setting, and it's nice to see more non-TLG support for C&C.

<r>The Barbarian. Mechanically it's an absurdly weak class (I can't understand why anyone would choose it over the fighter or ranger). Conceptually, the idea of a 'barbarian' is a cultural one, not a professional one, IMO.<br/> _________________<br/> While it is unlikely to interest most of you, her...

<r>It's a very nice little 'self-contained' setting that can be connected to pretty much any campaign world.

Overall, I think that it was 'okay'. Not nearly as good as the original or the third one, but probably on par with, or even slightly superior to, the 'Temple of Doom'. I'd give it 2.5 stars (out of 4). SPOILERS WARNING Unlike others, I didn't mind the alien angle. It seems like an appropriate 'pulpy...
