Re: Epic6 & Gritty6 (2 blog reposts)

As new 1st level adventurer having never fought for your life a goblin is a fierce foe. While at tenth level... a skilled combatant is going to churn through a pack of goblins. If your concerned that a lone goblin cant kill a 10th level fighter.. well they shouldnt. unless the goblin can catch the f...

Re: Epic6 & Gritty6 (2 blog reposts)

I like the concept of e6 alot more then actual use of it. I understand wanting to keep the charcacters more mortal but at the same time your limiting your game alot. Since C&C handles falls differently then any other D&D/ism/clone etc... I dont see falling as a problem. A 50' fall is deadly to any l...

Re: Perception Rolls redux

I liked the choose int or wis way. but i have never really liked any method of perception check.
I see perception checks as the lazy mans 'did i miss anything important' roll.
Players seem to use it instead of asking questions about the environment.

Re: Rules Questions...

The best rules advice i can give. Make up a fair rule. use it for players and monsters (or have a good reason). If a rule differs for npcs explain it to the players and why.

Re: Rules Questions...

Forgot to mention. If you withdraw from an oppent i give the oppent a free swing. That tends to discourage the players from trying to end run. Also if they somehow do manage to run around an unengaged foe...the foe turns to meet them as they advance for free. If it aint from surprise you just dont g...

I have always just figured Flanking meant: If your attacking someone who is already engaged in combat you get +1 for flanking.

Re: do you still use dungeons?

Put me firmly in the mega-dungeon camp. My game has a mega-dungeon. It has a reason and purpose. Its back story makes it key to my world. It is often ignored, but it is a major plot driver of my world. I have done lairs and encounter sites.. they are ok and can be quite fun. But the game was built o...

Dont forget to subtract the 20 hp kicker from everything also.

Mostly it all converts on the fly. Some weapons have different damge from system to system.

I converted a 5yrs running HM game to C&C 4 years ago and havent looked back. rules lite baby!

Re: CKG simply great

I am using the less lethal crit/fumble tables, the land as rewards, the levels beyond 13, and the equipment wastage sections. The rest of the book is great to read and may be used in the future.
The section on powers of a cleric on holy ground is fabulous also.
