Great post and welcome! Glad to have you with us.

[Rigon is a righteous and excellent dude and is sometimes known as Mr. C&C! ]

Thank you for the gracious welcome. Along with Trek-RPGnet (where I post under the moniker of D.S.McBride), this is the only chat site that I frequent; not out of a sense of elitism or anything, but simply from the fact that the Trek RPGs - the Icon iteration, for the most part - and C&C are the only games that have really caught my/our attention in recent years. Thinking about it, I should really throw Villains & Vigilantes into that group as well; that game captured the essence of the entire superhero genre better than any I've seen before or since, and we still get together every once in a while (subject to Jungger's tender GMing mercies - he likes killing his PCs only a little bit ) to slug Leo the Lion and the Floop Brothers in the kisser.

It's all too easy to go into a vitriolic rampage about how badly Wizards raked over the entire D&D experience...suffice to say that I - as well as Jungger and our other brother - now regard their version as D&D in name only. Mr. Gygax's own commentary on that game, which I read recently as part of an archived interview, are pretty much word-for-word what my feelings are on the matter; leave us say that I've got a few hundred dollars' worth of "core" books that are going to see use now only as reference/concept texts. Enough on that unpleasant matter.
I agree the big one hundred regarding Rigon; Jungger and I were crestfallen at the concept of having to deal with an out-of-print system. AD&D 2.0 is great, but like real estate, they ain't makin' no more of it. Then we get the clouds parting and the shaft of light leading us on to the promised land...and find something that's pretty much AD&D, only better. Once again, all my thanks for the welcome, and hoping that we get to exchange many tales of rescued maidens and monacled archvillains over a tankard of grog.

Hi all! I'm a long time gamer who wanted an easy introduction to role-playing for my sons (ages 5, 7 and 9). Glad to have found C&C as it really takes me back to the old days!

I started off playing Empire of the Petal Throne in 1975, then switched to DnD a couple years after. My first DnD experience was going through Tegel Manor with first level characters! The stupid DM must not have realized how tough that would be. Lots of dragging my dead magic user back to town.

Switched to AD&D when that came out, and began DMing at that point. Found Harn and its associated products in 1983, and once Harnmaster came out that was my gaming system into the early 90s. Then I got married and gaming suddenly went away. How sad.

Fast forward to 2007 and my kids are getting older. "Time to jump back in!" I thought and went searching for a good system to start off playing with my sons. All I can say about C&C is WOW! This is the perfect vehicle for some really good gaming with the kids. The 5 year old opted out during character creation, but the older two are having a blast - they're on their second adventure, clearing out some kobold caves in search of some missing wool. Maybe I'll share the details in the appropriate forum.

Anyway, I've been lurking for over a month and thought I should de-lurk and say hi. I'm really enjoying the discussions and insights of the regular posters - so thanks for that!

Welcome to the Crusade! I'm glad that you found what you were looking for. My experience was pretty much the same: I hadn't gamed in a while, wanted to see what was up, didn't really dig 3rd edition in its entirety and stumbled across C&C. Come to think of it, I never posted an introduction here myself. I guess that I'll have to do that soon.

Well...I'm back! (Judging by all the new faces, most of you are thinking "Who the hell are you?")

Well, I'm a TLG fan from back in the Erde/3E days. Loved the setting, and thought the good folk at TLG were pretty cool. Unfortunately, 3E wasn't my bag, so I ditched the system but stuck with the Trolls, so impressed was I with their setting.

Eventually, C&C came out, and I was completely sold on the system. I pimped the game, ran demos for 3Eers (many of which went C&C), and ran a very enjoyable C&C chat game with some folks you might recognize.

Real life sort of got in the way of my C&C for a while, and I dropped out of sight for a bit. Things have settled down now, and I've got that C&C tingly feeling deep inside once more...so watch out! Lord knows their isn't anything more dangerous the a tingly CK !
