<r>I ran B10 in the GDK for a while under C&C and it was a great fit for the system. Everything worked fine until the party got creamed about halfway through. They sorta lost interest in the campaign after that. <br/> If you get GAZ1, B2, and B10 you're good for a a couple years of play without ...

<t>I'm coming late to this topic. I played the "hardback" version of the game with my group for a while, but the campaign lost steam. Not the fault of the system, but I was trying to run "old school" for some not-so-old-school players. Wasn't a good match, ah well, live & learn. <br/> ANYWAYZ, a...

I know from the DF boards that rabindranath72 was using Mentzer D&D for his game, but I was wondering if his C&C notes had ever been compiled in one place, possibly for download?

<t>My campaign has only just begun (first session last night) but I hope to keep things fairly light. Our group has been doing a lot of horror/dark fantasy for the last year or so and I -for one- am ready for a change.<br/> <br/> The party is just about to encounter some wererat goblins in the curre...

<t>I got a very friendly email from RPGNow about the situation, so I had no complaints about their handling of it (I actually had someone try to charge $700 at Macy's, so it was lucky for me they contacted me when they did). <br/> <br/> I do have to wonder how much of this is related to the merger w...

I interpret it as stopping at 7th Level, but I suppose you could continue the progression if you wanted.

Goodman Games DCC's: Who's using with CnC?

<t>I own several of these in PDF and 1-2 in hard copy. While I -as a rule- rarely run anything straight from the book/module, I do think these have a lot of good stuff for C&C-style play. <br/> <br/> Currently, I'm working to finish a submission that's going into an upcoming DCC compilation and ...
