Re: Very important message regarding the forums

As a new convert (2 years) to C&C, the data in these forums is irreplaceable. Being able to search, return a list of TOPICS, and then read the responses is invaluable. Rule explanations, variations, stats for custom monsters... please save this data for future me.

Wounds

Anyone use 'wounds' as described in the CKG p 314? Divide total hit points by 4, for four wounds. 1 Wound = no effect 2 Wounds = -1 to Attribute Check/Attack Roll 3 Wounds = -2 to Attribute Check/Attack Roll, -1 Saves 4 Wounds = -3 to Attribute Check/Attack Roll, -2 Saves Thought the idea was cool a...

Hey Dorf, in the "Expanding Classes" supplement, it mentions Armor Restrictions on page 6: "Wizard/Illusionist supporting an armor-proficient class may not cast spells which directly cause damage or allow the target a save while wearing armor." https://www.trolllord.com/tlgstore/#!/Castles-&-Crusade...

Re: Finesse weapons

I would allow either Dex or Str, but not both. R- This makes the most sense to me. No doubt DEX could play a role in melee, but probably would help "To Hit" more than "Damage". Now that I type that, perhaps you could allow a DEX bonus for your "To Hit", and then the STR bonus for "Damage"... but I'...

Start-Up: 125gp x Level
Salary: 12gp, 5sp x Level

There are also some charts for determining the CL for finding them with various means:

why no just lob spells at each other like a melee combat? Appreciate the reply, and that's certainly available, and is represented in the example with the Fear Spell.

I adapted this from Chapter 8 of the Castle Keeper's Guide and used the "ACR" (p 177, 2nd printing) t...

Hi All: I have settled on C&C as my game system of choice, I came for the SIEGE Engine, but stayed for the MANA points. I play solo, and use this system with everything, whether a board game, game book, or straight-up RPG. However, I have never ventured outside the fantasy genre, and would like to d...
