Re: PrimEvil Studios is available for miniatures commissions

Have been meaning to post a few pictures of mini's that Egg did for me this year... The big one was Briarrose the Bee Knight, this Ral Partha 1979 and has been sitting in a box of figures for way to long. Now it lives in a Chessex Display case.

Re: Queen of Spiders

Very Welcome...My son is still stuck in Level 3 of Fire Giants (just snuck into Troll Caves). Sadly school started again so won;t make it to D1 until the holidays. But when he does I'll post up my tear sheet for D1 (The Lich should be fun!)

Dragon Adventurer

I was fiddling around with an Idea for an NPC coming up and after thinking about it, checking the books, looking back at what has been done in the old days, the middle days and the rest came up with pretty simple Class. It has some warts and I still don't really understand why C&C has 12 Age Categor...

Re: Liitle Birds: The Game Breaks Down? The Math is off?

As Treebore stated is generally about how Siege works versus how AD&D saves worked for Higher levels. (IE roll a 2 you save!). One point most non-C&C players missed is that a lot of the "save or suck" spells got taken out. Notice Neutralize Poison is not reversible in C&C. So you don't get a 4th lev...

Re: Tome of the Unclean reboot...

I was sort of perplexed by the under-shoot on them also. We've got good many threads in the C&C Monsters Forums and Tomb of the Unclean was really the outlier on power level. I get not wanting to give in to power gaming, but then again, they are Demons and Devils. But hey I bought it !

Re: Would You Consider This CK Cheating?

Seems fine to me but you better drop the warning hints early and often. Like you said the tank will attack, that's what they are suppose to do. If he dies in a round or two their will be teeth gnashing. But I don't see a 10HD monster as so uber-gross as to be DM/CK vindictiveness .. Aside: I actuall...

Re: How'd you get into Castles & Crusades?

Winter of 2008 I started to get the itch to run a game again. My son was now 8 and I figured it was about time he learned it a RPG. It took until the summer of 2009 to run the first one. The last game had been user 3rd edition and ended in late 2004. But the players where all from my high school gro...

Re: Which class would you drop from C&C, if you had to.

Illusionist first, Knight second, Assassin third. Mostly because another class can easily fill the void with good role-playing and character development. Wizard fills Illusionist, Fighter fills Knight, Rogue or Fighter fills Assassin.

Just my 2cents

Re: No illusionist healing -tweak

Far easier to change the name of the class. That will solve almost all the problems. Insert you favorite new class name (mentalist, sorcerer, adept, psychic, etc....)

I like the class in C&C it's got a great tool box and is fun.
