Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

The Ranger Backpack mentioned in the initial post has an EV of 4 and a capacity of 18. Per the PHB, that means the backpack may hold no more than 18 items. Each of those items may not have an EV of more than 17. The EV of the individual items within the backpack is ignored when figuring the EV of t...

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

Mmmkay, Plan F (or whatever letter we're up to now LOL) I was just asked to fix the backpack EVs after all. This is not my forte, but I just read the section on PHB p. 67 and I agree with the assessments in the original post, so that will be the basis I work from. I will have to get clarifications ...

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

No word from Tim yet. But I checked and it's only been a couple of weeks so far, it just felt longer.

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

Okay, done. I emailed tim@trolllord.com on Thursday, now to sit back and give Mr. Burns time to look into it.

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

I will take that suggestion. I do not find a direct email for anyone at the TLG website. But all my automated notifications of new posts to this forum come from tim@trolllord.com -- would that be an account Tim reads, and not just a bot?

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

Spade, glad to hear it's not just me that has the concern, and I welcome your analysis of the EV section comparing PHB 7 with the new book. I am brand new to C&C this year; our CK has made us aware that many of the rules have evolved from edition to edition and that...shall we say proofreading may n...

Re: Missing animal stats

That should be close enough for government work, as they say. Thanks!

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

As I said, I have no idea where the book is in the proofreading process, or how near it is to print. Typos can almost never be fully eliminated, only minimized. My concern with the EV ratings for the packs was that what looks wrong to me is presented consistently across all the pre-made packs and th...

Re: Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

Are you proofreading the whole book? I confess I made no such effort, I jumped ahead to the description of the packs themselves.

(For that matter, I'm not sure where we are on being ready to go to print, is proofreading still ongoing with the possibility of changed to the text?)

Missing animal stats

I recently acquired a gray colored bag of tricks , which produces a bat, cat, rat, badger, weasel to serve the owner for 10 minutes. I have searched Monsters & Treasure, Classic Monsters , and Mystical Companions . Despite various claims in one book that a description of the animal can be found in a...

Adventurer's Backpacks - EV ratings

What I see in the description of the various pre-made packs is too consistent to be typos, but I don't understand the EV ratings; they seem to contradict the rule that the EV's of a containers contents do not count toward the EV of a worn container, it only serves to mark the capacity of that contai...

Enchanting Expert and Greater Expert Weapons

D&D 3.0 had a sort of "enchantment tax" whereby enchanting a sword to +1 added no atk/dmg bonus because all magic weapons were automatically Masterwork; Masterwork already granted a +1 bonus; and the two bonuses did not stack. C&C does not assume that all magic weapons are Expert or Greater Expert, ...
