<t>This is another raised hand for converting the Book of Familiars to C&C. It was the first TLG book I bought and I loved the material in there. It certainly started my lurking around on this site (well, the old site anyway). <br/> Even if that'll never happen, if you're looking for some good t...

<t>If I were adding 20 levels of spells I would probably retool Monte's list so that every odd level contained mostly out of combat spells and every even level contained the damaging 'boom' spells... that would give them more of an option to keep their list diversified.<br/> _________________<br/> -...

Hey CSP,

Have you gotten a chance to see those 'non-standard' classes in play, such as the additional classes in your UA? How have they panned out?

You'll pretty much decide when she's leveling and such and I'd imagine you'll be giving her some items to help her out since she'll be wandering around alone....
