<t>Omote, I also enjoy Axis & Allies, I have the Mideast and Pacific Theatre expansions. Have you tried these or others? What did you think? Could you suggest an Axis & Allies game for my PC?<br/> <br/> You should give Go a try, it doesn't suffer from material reduction like Chess type games...

Hi Moriarty!

Yes Ottawa Canada.

Well if something opens up let me know.

I started going through the introduce yourself thread a few days ago, it appears we have some interests in common besides C&C. How's your manuscript going.

EXP Costs for Class Abilities

<t>Hi all<br/> <br/> It appears I'll have no more than two, maybe three players in my group. All my modules call for four or more PCs. I need a way to strengthen and/or make the PCs more versatile.
