Re: Welcome to the New Forums

Love the new boards! Thrilled that I'm not having several video ads playing as I open multiple tabs. That was getting so annoying.

This is a great move that can only serve to improve people's perceptions of TLG! Hopefully, that brings more people into the fold and keeps C&C reaching new heights!

Re: House Rule - Alternate Weapon Tables

Your idea of using it only to break ties is cool because then it's not a big deal on each roll until it comes up, much less intrusive. Simpler than mine, and simple is probably better I agree. I've been using simultaneous actions for initiative ties, but a weapon speed factor to break ties is intri...

It doesn't look like they've moved everything over from the old forums yet. The errata is still listed in the Keeper's Advice section on the old forums (which you can still get to with the direct link on the Troll Lord Website.

I missed the note on the glitch. My order is definitely coming! (And I just may get Fat Dragon's windmill too. It's pretty cool and I should have some extra time with the holidays coming up.)

I added it the cart in the TLG store, but it still shows with the three red stars -- that it doesn't exist in the desired quantity (I just wanted one...). So I thought it wasn't yet available.
