Re: Haste & Slow Combat Affects

Did you actually read my post or are you talking out your a** again? Casting a wish spell is serious business. It should be risky, and magical aging as the sole side effect of casting the spell provides too little risk for the reward. Quoting the text of the wish spell is irrelevant to the entire p...

As your legs don't propel one through the air I'd say no effect. But, it would look funny to see the legs flailing at double speed.

They only let you MOVE as per the Haste spell, not attack, so thats OK.
Ah yes. True that.

Re: Haste & Slow Combat Affects

All the effects are in the spell description I believe. I believe so too. I think in C&C they only increase or decrease speed/movement, and reduce or increase attacks by one step. I don't recall their being an effect on AC. In C&C, especially when Combat Maneuvers are used, that movement being incr...

12" rounds of douglas fir out in the weather for several months set 30 feet away. Using 8" long titanium steel alloy blades with a max width of 1" weighing roughly 12-14 oz., leather wrapped hilts, no cross guard. Sunk each blade that stuck 1" plus into the wood. That's all?

Not necessarily true.

Show me empirically, how much damage you did throwing both at the same time. Have you ...

Rate of Fire in the CKG, thanks, I do recall reading that once. Thanks, applies directly to bows, no cross bows, but omits the other ranged weapons. -2 for each shot when shooting two, -4 for each when shooting three, etc. Seems reasonable. Again, I would think the 10th lvl fighter gets two then th...
