Thanks -- that must've been where I got it. If there aren't any newer versions than what I have, let me be the first to pester, prod, nag, and cajole Mr. Bell into finishing it! I'll even send him a bottle of his favorite beverage...

I would love to see it in the CKG though. Serl, is that the "T...

<t>Thanks for all the replies, guys. I was about to post some of my AD&D save analysis that led to my 12/15 conclusion, but then I thought of another wrinkle I could -- and should -- apply to this analysis. I'm off to the DMG, and will report back when I've baked this idea more thoroughly.<br/> ...

Please share your SIEGE number variants

<t>After much crunching of numbers, I think I want to use 12/15 rather than 12/18, for two reasons:<br/> <br/> 1. 12/15 seems to duplicate AD&D save ranges, by level, more closely than 12/18, and<br/> <br/> 2. Although I realize that common sense must be applied -- that a 3 prime should never be...

Conan C&C?

<t>A fellow named David Bell was working on a conversion of the Mongoose D20 Conan RPG to the C&C rules, and doing an excellent job of it. I have a draft that is dated January '06, and I don't recall where I downloaded it from.<br/> <br/> David, are you around here? Anyone know if he is still wo...

<t>Dristram, you might want to check out Mongoose's D20-based Conan RPG. While I'm no fan of D20, it will give you a lot of ideas along the lines you're thinking here: attack rolls against a defense that is based on fighting skill, with armor acting as damage reduction. <br/> <br/> If it's available...

Hey Trolls: a module query

<t>Having bought several modules now -- and planning to buy lots more -- I've got some observations:<br/> <br/> The slim size is great; the greatest modules ever written, after all, were 8-24 pages, plus maps. All the meat and no tedious fluff, as it should be. <br/> The content has been of very goo...
