Re: So there is a C&C edition for this Kickstarter now.

Its going to be a "clean up" of the rules and be full color. Is that worth it to you? Alright, it wasn't clear to me entirely that it was the same book with the name change and all. Ill have to mull on whether or not ill back it. There is a certain "Ive already crowdfunded one iteration of this boo...

So there is a C&C edition for this Kickstarter now.

Anyone know if it's any use for me to back this if I already own the C&C Book of Familiars supplement?

Re: What is the current status of the Aihrde Players Book?

I don't know anything about the Aihrde Player's Book, but the Forge is still there. It's called Upon the Forge's Anvil! . Ah yes, that forum is still here.

What is the current status of the Aihrde Players Book?

I pre-ordered the Aihrde Codex on the website back before the Troll Lord kickstarters were a thing, and I picked up the players book as an add-on during the "Three Sisters" kickstarter before the Aihrde kickstarter was a thing. Anyway I got my Codex, and I am sure the players book is still in develo...

Re: SECOND PRINTING KICKSTARTER!!!

There will be a discussion of using C&C with AA, but the truth is, using characters from one to the other is as easy as dropping them in. AA characters have been engineered using the same relative math that is used for C&C progressions, so they should be quite balanced. You'll notice that in the an...

Re: Remington Model 11

Rate of fire 3 does not mean 3d10 damage. It means 3 shots, with each shot rolled separately and potentially doing 1d10 each. Your third shot is going to be at a whopping -6 from recoil. Fair enough. Was just explaining why I thought it had the potential to do up to 3d10 worth of damage in a single...

Re: Remington Model 11

I'm not sure how you got 3d10, though. It is not double barreled and does 1d10 damage. It has a rate of fire of 3 in my PDF? Am I running off an old copy? Also, it's only available in games set after 1949. It is listed as "All years" in my PDF. I assume this can be added to the errata of the new pr...

Re: Do you fudge die rolls? Creature Stats? On the fly?

I tend to fudge rolls, downgrade CLs, remove abilities from some monsters in the following scenarios: When a player decimates a monster/npc within 1-3 of its last remaining hit points I may go ahead and drop it dead. Especially if its been a longer fight. The player fails a roll that means life or d...

Am I missing something or is the Remington Model 11 a little over powered with no recoil? Potentially 3d10 on the first combat round 2d10 on the second.

Re: TLG 8129 The Book of Familiars

When you do this you force me to figure out how to do things on my own, which makes me reluctant to buy books like this. The only reason I bought the CKG is because I play in other CK's games, who do use the CKG, because they didn't figure things out like I have. Which is likely going to be the onl...
