Re: high level?

13+ is high level to me... There is no top, if someone runs it I will play. If someone wants to play I will run it. It's all fun to me.

Re: C&C Whitebox

I have mixed feelings about the C&C whitebox as a system. It really does have most of what I like in a game (the core races, the core classes) but C&C really isn't a hard game to figure out and doesn't have that many rules so I wonder if a "basic" C&C is really worthwhile. The C&C Player's Handbook...

C&C White box is OK. I'd thrown my 2 cents behind Delving Deeper had I ever received the boxed set that I paid for. That being said, it would be pretty cool having a product dedicated to the C&C White box. Not to thread jack but... PM or Email John about this. He really is trying to get everyone's ...

Re: Boards Updated

Shows you want i know :)... You're right there is a built ATOM feed.

How to enable and where do I see it
To enable the feed in its basic form, go to: ACP>General>Feed settings
1)Set "Enable Feeds" to "Enabled".
2)Set "Enable board-wide feed" to "Enabled"
Should be easy to turn on for Tim.

Re: Knight's Inspire Ability and ideas for avoiding a TPK...

I don't let the inspire occur with other actions. But it only to avoid the slippery slope of can I do x,y,z and attack? I hold to 1 action and 5 step that's it. YMMV

But I would not make a player come up with a speech, especially for a new character, That just seems doomed to fail.

Fighters are generally a good 3-5 points better then the other martial classes and gobs better then the non-martial classes. T...

It's the nature of player to try and take advantage. :) I would point out that a the spell is intended to only work on TYPE: Animal so anything that is Beast or Magical Beast it auto fail.

I know 2 famous ones off the top of my head.

The other was Tucker's Kobolds which was from a Dragon Article by Roger Moore I think.

it's good to revisit assumptions. It makes you realize why made a change. I remember pretty vividly all the point you made from the short time I ran 3/3.5 and why C&C really clicked when I first stumbled upon it. D&D Next, great but I'm content.
