Re: My C&C houserules and character sheet are updated/revise

I've consolidated some of the class abilities (i.e. acrobatics and escape artist are folded into acrobatics, open locks and remove traps are combined as disable device) and tweaked Turn Undead. Other than that it's still a mashup of C&C and AD&D that ditches the use of primes and sets the base diff...

Re: Sorcerers and Wizards

" A high Intelligence score allows a Sorcerer to know and cast more spells per day."

Should that be Charisma?

Re: C&C Trial at my game table

http://sites.google.com/site/advancedcastlesandcrusades/home/rulesexpansions Omote's got some houserules for adding simpler feats. Another idea is to allow them to actually earn some of those feats by making successful SIEGE checks. As for Rogues in combat, the 4th printing has rules for class-and-...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

I would rather cap the level progression at 7 as that is just powerful enough to have interesting opponents and abilities, but not so powerful as to worry about going beyond "balance." Sure that works, but in C&C there is nothing to give as reward after that level Cap... so why keep playing? Well, ...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

I also like the idea of E6 in C&C -- there was a bit more discussion previously on E6 on these (old) threads, but can't search for two letter words such as 'E6' in this forum software. Sounds like the CKG has rules to make this easier. For handling different XP progressions, could use a 'capstone' f...

I'm not sure I'd call the Haunted Highlands "undead-filled" but it's definitely a relatively dark and gritty place compared to most fantasy settings. It's fairly low-magic as well.

How do you define 'low magic' for HH?

Back up and wisper -- do I pepper them with arrows to draw them to us, taking them by surprise when they round the corner, or charge as I got one shot off?
