Re: Crusader Companion: Experience Tables & Class Creation H

The Companion is currently being revised, so yes I will take a look at that section. I don't think it is possible to accurately come to the same numbers with any method tho. Some of them look to be pulled out of thin air. There are EXP requirement boosts in some of the classes during a level where ...

Re: Crusader Companion: Experience Tables & Class Creation H

I wrote the Class Construction section and I have no idea how they came up with 6,000 either :P If the authors of the core classes had a method, they didn't always follow it. If you follow the method I wrote, it would be 200 extra XP after doubling the previous level's XP. At second glance, it look...

Re: Crusader Companion: Experience Tables & Class Creation H

I'd have to know which specific version your using to be absolutely sure, but I think the doubling only counts for what you start with for first level, plus these formula were never claiming to be 100% accurate. I just know when I tried to figure it out, years ago when Serleran first proposed these...

Crusader Companion: Experience Tables & Class Creation Help?

Hey there, Long time no see. So I was looking the old Crusader Companion, specifically at the Class Creation rules and how to make their Experience Tables, and I noticed something that was either missing, or I missed. When assembling the special abilities of a class to get their XP table, there are ...

Engineer Class?

Hey there,

I was wondering, has anyone made an Engineer class for C&C? I found on for 5e on enWorld, but would rather be playing C&C than 5e to be honest.

Any ideas folks?

Sorry to cast "Raise Thread" on this one, but I was wondering if there is any news?

I am looking for a D&D game to play and 1st, 2nd and 3rd are raising the spectors of their faults and I remember this. I am most curious about it.

So after a long hiatus, I am thinking of running C&C again (as other than a couple of neat new versions of D&D I have seen, Radiance and Heroes Against Darkness) I am not liking D&D Next at all. So to do so, I need to have my special class involved, the Kalinites. The Kalinites After the Red Death w...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

There are numerous rewards at each level in C&C: 1) HP progresses 2) BtH increases 3) all abilities improve due to the SIEGE mechanic 4) saves improve 5) many classes have abilities above level 6 Of course, it could be done. You could simply assign XP values to these and have them purchasable. If I...

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? I mean...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

AslanC: word. One thing, however. Many people will tell you (I am one of these) that the Savage Worlds rules read like uninspired standard fare but in practice are far more awesome. YMMV Fair enough, though there are also concerns that the characters are all the same; http://mostunreadblogever.blog...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

Well, you could always go skills-based like Savage Worlds. That game rocks pretty hard and you maintain a fairly consistent level of power for a good while in that one. Of course, it's always best at a fairly action movie or pulp type of feel. My best SW games have been Blackhawk Down or Aliens sty...

Re: Is E6 in C&C possible?

Thanks for all the feedback everyone.

Seems like C&C may not be the choice for me in the end.

I was looking at Unisystem, but the amount of rules I would have to cobbling together and modify from the various sources is very overwhelming as well.

Pathfinder... ugh... c'est la vie.

E6 was perhaps one of those ideas that really caught my attention when I was first presented with it. It rekindled my love of D&D by showing me how to run a fun and long term campaign that kept it in the "sweet spot" for me, lvls 1 - 6. I was looking at C&C and trying to think of a way to do it, bu...
