DA1 A Dark Journey - a couple of questions

A dark journey is a great module, if don't have it yet get it now! :) A couple of questions for the author: 1- in room #35, there is a reference to a room on the other side of the tapestry on the east wall. I assume the tapestry is on the west wall and splits the long room in two sections? 2- room #...

Re: DA1 Dark Journey -- Whats K1 -> K5 on level 1?

I'm preparing A Dark Journey for my group. Great adventure! Congrats to the author, this is indeed in the spirit of some of my old favourites. About K1 to K5 I decided to make use of them in the following way. Of course players should not be reading this thread at all, and if they're reading this th...

Re: CKG Question

Is there an official errata for the CKG somewhere? I couldn't find one on the TLG website (or any errata, where are they hidden?). Also Tim, where is the Q&A global post you mentioned?

Training

This has perhaps been discussed at length before (I'm no good at searching forums, I did try but didn't come up with anything). What do you use as rules when characters have earned enough experience to gain a level? For those who use training, what are your house rules? How long is training, 1 week ...

Re: What's your order number for the CKG?

I haven't had a chance to sit down and read it, just browsed through it, but I like what I saw. Great art by Peter as usual. One thing I may have missed but I didn't see in it ar...

What's your order number for the CKG?

So we're waiting for the CKG pre-orders to come in. While we wait I thought we could get a feel for when our orders might come in by seeing the orders arriving for others. Of course some are going farther than others, but still it could give us a sense of progression in the line! :) So my pre-order ...

We're trying both in the Umbrage saga campaign I'm starting. One multi-classing character, and one class-and-a-half NPC. We'll see how it goes.

Welcome Charakan. I also think that C&C hits just the right spot in terms of rules. They don't get in the way or bog you down, so you can enjoy the rest!

Travel rates (movement rates over a distance)

I guess that's something that'll be in the CKG.<br/> <br/> How do you handle groups with different base movement rate (say with a halfling)? Do you use a flat rate (x miles/hour), perhap...
