Re: Zero Magic C&C

Is there support for play of Castles and Crusades in a purely medieval setting, with bare minimum magical content if not zero magic? I tried searching the forums and it didn't seem to like me searching for 'no magic.' Not sure if there is but the idea has a certain appeal. It caused me to remember ...

Re: Settings you have never played / ran, but would like to ?

I've not run a campaign in HârnWorld but it is tempting. I'd need to house rule some things with regard to magic as C&C is a bit too high fantasy for the setting, IMO.

Indeed. Unnecessarily so, IMO.

Re: The Barons of Bellevue

Resnick immediately tended to his fallen companions. By the grace of Ealor and applications of sea salt, wounds were closed and lives saved. The ranger who had been absent during the fight (player missed the session) returned to the Empty Flagon. He had been the first to run out and face the attacke...

Also the BBC show staring Sean Bean as Sharpe are great fun as well. I enjoyed Cromwell's Grail Quest Series comprised o...

Rif and Gritznak attacked each other but, at the early going, neither could get past the other's shield. Short Shanks ran up to stab the blinded goblin and kobolds who desperately fought back. A goblin and a kobold were put down fairly easily before the last kobold managed a wicked stab to Short Sha...

The party faction with Eribus and Rif reached Malforten in an uneventful manner at dusk after two days. Ulrich, who went south, was not there to see them arrive. The party, somewhat restored through the healing prayers of Resnick, made for The Empty Flagon to have hot meals and much ale. Though the ...
