2 books to sell - people interested or knowing where to post an add?

Hi folks,

I'm looking to sell a few used C&c books, given that I bought newer printings

M&T 4th printing
Classic Monsters 1st printing

Where would be a good place to post an add for those?

Thanks in advance for any tips you may have

Looking for a haunted castle module

Hi folks, Was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a module that would take place in a haunted castle. Let me explain: my group is getting close to a castle that has been abandonned & has a dreadful reputation following some foul magic action years ago. I was thinking of vampirizin...

Two weapon fighting

Guys, Quick question. When it comes to two-weapon fighting, the primary weapon suffers a -3 attack penalty, and the secondary one suffers a -6, modified by Dexterity. Do you add your Bonus to Hit to the attack rolls? I've always thought that yes, but when re-reading the rule book, it's not clearly s...

Wand of light

Hi guys,

Very specific question, but where could I find the XP value of a Wand of Light?

I was reading through the M&T but can't find it.

How would I go on calculating the XP value of that specific item if it doesn't exist?

Thanks for the help

Re: XP for traps

I checked the CKG, indeed it gives a CL for each trap described, and gives you overall rules to design and CL your own traps.

So yeah, I guess it gives a measure of XP to be given to PCs when they find & disarm a trap

XP for traps

Hi all,

Simple question : do you allow XP gain for traps? If you do, is it the rogue earning the xp or the whole group?

Let me know how you do it, as in vanilla there doesn't appear to be any xp gain for whenever the group finds and disarms a trap

Have a good day

Re: Repairing a ruined castle

Cool stuff that whole owning a ruined place I find, it really gives lots of incentives to go adventuring and ideas for games, NPCs etc

And Telhawk, we should licence that game, like right now. Lets call it "Macho nerdos with dice" :D

But yeah, challenges will come their way too, need money for repairs... It's a grea...

Hi all, My players are gonna explore and hopefully free an old ruined castle from a pack of orcs. I have a feeling they will want to appropriate the walls as their home and fancy themselves Castelans. I have some rough estimates for the value of repairs that they will need to undertake to make their...

Thanks for the answers guys, I was referring to the "read a scroll into a spellbook" rule that allows spellcasters to basically transfer a spell from a scroll to their spellbook at no expense, but destroying the scroll in the process. Was wondering if the same was doable with spellbooks to spellbook...

Questions about magic

- do you allow reading from a spellbook into a spellbook just like with scrolls?
- how much spellbooks with spells written in them are worth?

Hi guys, Old question I'm sure, but how do you reward XPs when your PCs fight & defeat NPCS with classes? There are several methods I can think of: -basically calculate XP depending of HPs and special abilities as per the M&M rules -give a flat 5% or 10% of the XP needed to reach the appropriate cla...
