Need help finding the "right" module

<t>Hello all,<br/> <br/> It's been a long while since I've posted, but I need some advice from you stalwarts. I'm running a C&C game with a group of guys who are now all third level. They're all old hats at role playing and Dungeons and Dragons. In other words, they've run through nearly ALL of ...

<t>Hey Serleran, do you have any Add-Ons or plugins installed on FF? I've got quite an assortment on mine, and it has in the past produced some "issues".
