Re: CKG Kickstarter

The past two leather bound books with my name embossed in the cover have been worth the extra cost. They are very nice. But I do not know what this one will look like, but I hear, no high cotton content is coming.. so expect another heavy book. The M&T book must be able to do at least d4 bludgeoning...

CKG Kickstarter

So I have a nice leather bound PH and M&T mega book. Pleased with both.

I hope to do the same for the CKG, I also hope they give the option for high cotton content, no gloss, paper.

Re: Experience in general

I personally have not used training cost and time to train, and having to find and pay for mysterious trainers, one for every class, since the 80s. Its all so contrived. It fits OK for big city social setting, rigid class structures, etc. Some classes it makes sense.. but creating the chance for tra...

Re: Monsters & Treasure 5th edition

I hope you are right and I too have little interest in other platforms... I learned boards for CnC here on this forum... I still do not get most of it.

That said, it might just take more to get the folks to post these days....

The new M&T is great, loose pages are great too. I dropped the extra and got the leather bound version.. great stuff in there and worth having.

Re: Finesse weapons

If a PC has one or two high scores they are usually in class prime. STR for fighter and DEX for say thief. Ranger might make a great example. If DEX is the only really high score then do you force the ranger to fight giants with ranged weapons to get his best to hit or allow the ranger to finesse hi...

What method would one use to "save" and undead... unwillingly created undead... how do you get them back to life? UnCreate Undead (reverse of create undead) should create a simple corpse.

Re: Most hated (by the book) monster

Norse giant's, they grow them tall up North... good call.

Goliath was maybe 6 or 7 foot tall.. so giant is relative.

Re: Question / Discussion about Delay Poison

if it all hits later it would be call "delay death". Delay poison is a wonky spell sometimes of little value.
