Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

In RPGs, I've been going through the core books for Symbaroum, Shadow of the Demon Lord, Mutant: Year Zero, and the revised Space 1889.

For miniatures its been the Frostgrave core book.

Re: Codex of Aihrde is Gorgeous! (pics)

Still waiting for my Codex collection, I'm one of the ones who pre-ordered for $150 back when the Trolls were offering it in the store. All of the pics look great, really looking forward to checking out the real deal.

Re: Spot Checks…What do You do?

Just to throw in my 2cps, I don't feel the act of spotting/noticing/perceiving requires an attribute of any sort, unless you refer to the character's physical eyesight, but I do feel wisdom is the best stat to use in conjunction with noticing things. Like others have said, I think this should just b...

Re: TLG 8126 Codex of Aihrde Pre-Order

I haven't had the opportunity to do any of the kickstarter's for C&C until now, so I went all out for the $150 package. The idea of getting to include my own swath of land in the setting is way cool, plus I'm stoked about the maps, screen and the customized journal. Really looking forward to this. :...

Re: Your favorite fantasy RPGs?

Call it sacrilege, but I don't like AD&D at all. Not one bit. Look, I understand it's history and influence in the hobby I love, but AD&D is out. It's fracking terrible. I just started playing in an AD&D campaign a few weeks ago. Other than one-off games at conventions, which are a total hoot, long...

So, I had the opportunity to join my friend Mike's C&C game, that he is running for his kids and their friends last night. I rolled up stats and in the end chose a half-Orc barbarian with INT 8, CHA 8, and the other stats average or higher. So, the CK has him waking up to the sounds of conversations...

Re: How will 5e affect C&C?

Isn't 5E supposed to support all of the other editions in this one, new edition? If so, that means that 1E style characters can play with 4E style characters. Um, yeah. That sounds incredibly dumb to me. Sure, some C&Cers will go in and get into 5E. But I would expect them to return when it's reali...

A new generation of Crusaders

I mentioned that I ran a C&C game a while back in a previous post. Well, one of the players recently enjoyed the game enough to buy a set of C&C, a PHB, CKG, and M&T. I stopped by his house this evening for something else, and noticed he was running a game of C&C for his two kids, one 13 another 17,...

I'm so sick of the revolving door of editions when it comes to that particular "brand name" of RPG. We ...

Re: Shaking up the Ranger and starting gold for some classes

Yeah, ringmail I was somewhat iffy on, my biggest concern was it getting caught up while moving quietly, especially in a heavily forested area. But that was the least of the armors I was concerned with.

But a couple things stuck out that I plan to change and was wondering what others thought about the changes I had in mind. Some of the Ranger armor allowance seems, strange. I'm planning to dro...

I don't play clone systems, it's just easier to run the original or C&C instead, but if I had to choose one, I think S&W would be the pick.
