First time CK looking for advice

Hello, fellow C&C fans. I hope you and your loved ones are in good health in good spirit. After years of roleplaying I decided to try my hand as a game master and because I have class :P as a Castle Keeper. I intend to use discord and Roll20 and The Rising Knight module. I am looking for advice and ...

Re: Magic Dragons

Great, so I guess for calculating XP value I need to add the value for level of spells in categories I - 1-3d level, II - 4-7 lvl, III - 8-9 lvl.

Magic Dragons

If there is anything in C&C I am not satisfied with that is dragons. I admit D&D 3.5 is to blame. There older dragons are quite the spellcasters. The C&C dragon cannot compare. So how would you make more magical dragons. I was thinking of using the Powers system from the Book of Powers for Amazing A...

Amazing Castles & Crusades

I have been reading through the Amazing Adventures books and have found a lot of which I'd like to port to a C&C game. The mentalist class, the fate dice mechanic, the character generation process, the sorcerer minus the corruption and either backgrounds + knowledge skills or the skill system from t...

APB and Class-and-a-half

So, we don't have rules for classes in the APB as supporting classes. Also, if a martial class takes supporting spellcasting class, will the character have problems for casting in armor?

Fantastic Adventure

So, I saw that "Fantastic Adventure" is one of the oldest modules, one that actually predates C&C. Has anyone ran or played it? What can be said about it?

Recreating iconic fantasy characters with class-and-a-half

I love this system and was thinking what can be done. Take Conan - take barbarian with supporting class rogue and you are done! Also Elric of Melnibone or Kain the Mystic Swordsman - ethereal knight with supporting class wizard. What are your iconic characters you wish to make with these optional ru...

Re: Crusaders at the Gates of Firestorm Peak!

Welcome to the community! In my games, i'm pretty much running AD&D 2nd ed as well, but with the C&C Siege mechanics. I have found it works quite well, so i don't see it wouldn't work for Firestorm Peak or the Player's Option series. So find yourself a copy and go for it. :) -Fizz But arent Player'...

Re: Lejendary Adventure, skill bundles, books

Thank you. I'm glad to be here. I'd like to enjoy the game, but I have a player burnout and after that I will have to proselytize about the glory of C&C to players used to D&D 5E. I hope I will be successful. I have the Beacon adventure and Shadows of the Halfling Hall - so I can introduce the game ...

Re: LA Magic ?

I am quite late for the party, but I hope you can see this. MAgic is governed by points (AEEP) generated by the Speed Attribute, not sure about the mechanic, but it was speed rating *4. You can basically cast every spell (and augment it in some way with extra AEEP), but stronger spells require more ...

My favourite monster is the rakshasa (hate what D&D 5E did to them on all fronts). Has anyone used them as villains and how?

Re: Crusaders at the Gates of Firestorm Peak!

Thanks for the pointers! I was hesitant, because I've read that the module was made to be used with the "Player's Options"s series. But I see it ca ngo both ways - vanilla AD&D 2E and PO!
