Trading and selling stuff?

Is it ok to post stuff for sale on the forums, or is that a no no?

I have some old D&D manuals and modules I'd be interested in unloading.

Let me know if it's okay to list them, and if so where.

Re: So... Combat Dominance, what's it good for?

So I picked up C&C, and I'm reading the Ability, "Combat Dominance" for fighters and my initial reaction was "Uh. Pretty useless." Now, my reaction might be colored by previous RPGs I've played, but how often will a 4th level party face 1 hit dice monsters (and it says 1 hit die or less... there ar...

Re: Ogre's super simplified armor rules

In the same vein of C&C and similar games, I feel like a rules lite weapons and armor system gives you more options, not less. :|

Re: Ogre's super simplified armor rules

It will work, but it all just seems so generic to me without the names. Can't you get the same effect by making "cheap" armour (-1 listed AC) cost -30% & quality armour (+1 listed AC) cost +50% or something? I think my players like the visuals the armours inspire. These are just the mechanics, when...

Looking to simplify race rules

For me I would prefer if the race rules were a bit simpler. I don't really want to have as many of them as there are, I think I would prefer to remove the societal rules, like dwarves being miners and gem experts, and just have inherent abilities like dwarves being resistant to poison, and short and...

Re: Replacing Combat Dominance

I replaced combat dominance with cleave from 3rd ed, and than at your next level step great cleave.

Basically you can make another attack if you kill a monster, and than at the next level step you can do it as much per round as permitted without moving.
