Hmm...It would be nice if Blizzard licensed a full Diablo table top game. Its own system and all.

Don't you mean that it would be nice if Blizzard offered the license to TLG?
[hint] Sanctuary would make a nice campaign setting for C&C! [/hint]

<t>Not necessarily mean; It's a useful suggestion for the CK. If you port a creature straight over from the RC and it has low HD but lots of asterisks (extra abilities), you might be tempted to through it at your low level party without much forethought, especially when you're winging it. However, i...
