Re: Getting Ready For the Semi-Weekly Game

Well, not to be too-spoilerific, but they found out that venomous mutant kobolds were a little harder to kill than they expected! :) The cleric got dropped, but was saved with a timely potion. They avoided the Necromancer and are now headed down the stairway into Deeper Darkness...

Running Games at DragonCon 2015

I have signed up for the DragonCon gaming announcement list and when it goes live I plan to post some sessions of Castles & Crusades. Can someone tell me how I could get support from the Trolls for running games?

Re: Ran C&C for four young people over the holiday

Part two.... The PCs drug the captured goblin back to the village and found an old dwarven blacksmith that knew how to speak goblin. Using the dwarf as translator, the Ranger asked where the shepherd boy was. The goblin answered "still in the basement I guess..." The players all looked at me and the...

Re: Ran C&C for four young people over the holiday

Interesting age group to run with particularly since they were newbies. I do applaud the fact that your daughters want you to run for them and their boyfriends as well. You are a lucky (or just plain great) dad! Had you run games for your daughters when they were younger? I tried to when they were ...

Re: Ran C&C for four young people over the holiday

Sounds cool! I like, "really?" LOL. How'd they like the mechanics of the game? Or was it more like, "what do you do? Ok, roll that one... ok it worked" and move on in narrative? Good to get the youth playing! WTG! I ran the game RAW for the most part. I asked each player what they wanted to do, tol...

Ran C&C for four young people over the holiday

I ran a C&C game for my two daughters (age 19 and 22) and their boyfriends over the holiday. Only my oldest daughter's boyfriend had ever played an RPG. The party was composed as follows: Nick - Human Ranger Ashlee - Human Cleric Derek - Human Fighter Anslee - Human Wizard The setup was simple. The ...

Re: CKG: poor print quality?

I recently ordered a perfect bound copy of the CKG from TLG and while I have enjoyed it very much, I find it very hard to read. I think it is a combination of the print quality and the poor 'brightness' of the paper. My copies of the PH and M&T do have this issue. They both have darker print and bri...

With all respect, I think it is poorly written and little thought is given to balancing the abilities granted by the various deities. The book has plenty of creativity but is not well executed. YMMV.
