My Long Awaited Return (Just Kidding)

Greetings All, It has been a very long time since I have graced these boards here at the Troll Dens. Real life kept me away far too long. Now I once more have time again to begin to resume my role playing game of choice C&C. So I thought I would pop back in and see what was going on. As I have time ...

Re: New to Amazing Adventures

If you really like Sin City, then there is good game out there called "Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime & Corruption", which utilizes the Savage Worlds RPG system. You would have to buy the Savage Worlds RPG plus the cost of Streets of Bedlum. This world is tailor made as a Sin City clone.

I love the books, but I have not used them for any AA games. The Dresden Files would make a cool series of adventures though.

Re: Stuff I'd Buy if TLG Made It

I would like to see a M&T book covering demons, devils, and other outer planar monsters. Tomb of the Unclean is good start though. :)

I would also like to see CZ returned to those who love it the most, i.e. the Trolls! I know it will probably never happen, but I can hope.

Re: Sci Fi and Supers Savage Worlds pre orders...

I like Savage Worlds a lot, Deadlands Reloaded in particular! We have had a lot of fun with Deadlands. I also like their version of Thrilling Tales. I have never used the SW system for straight fantasy or SciFi though, but I do have the Horror Campanion that I use once in a while for Thrilling Tales...

Re: C&C goodness converted from D20 vs. AD&D; your preferenc

I have always found it easier to convert the older 1st ED. AD&D modules to use in C&C. Mostly it is just adjusting the AC and a few other things. I ran 1st Ed. Tegel Manor (JG Version) in my C&C campaign and it was real easy to do on the fly. Conversion of the d20 stuff was more of a challenge the f...

I pretty much use the advantages, secondary skills, the expanded attribute chart, the explanations on how illusions work, and the equipment weathering and combat wastage tables. I also plan on using the extended class abilities once my players get up there.

Know Alignment Spell?

I was preping for a run this weekend which involved the players running into groups of fey. I just noticed, after all these years, that Pixies have a spell-like ability called Know Alignment. But guess what? There is no such spell in the Player's Handbook. Was this spell accidently left out, is it a...

Re: Awful quiet around here...

I don't have my copy of AA in front of me right now, but one thing remember wanting to see was an expansion on fire arms/weapons and vehicles under equipment.

I really like this game by the way. Haven't had a chance to run it yet, but I love pulp, and this looks like a good system to run with it.
