Re: How about running away/chasing?

An example for a Siege Engine constitution check is given in the PHB (pg 166 for the 6th & 7th printing) that covers something similar to this. Their example is for a Ranger running away from a band of orcs, and the check is if he can he keep running without having to stop and rest.

Re: Adventurer's Backpack

From the latest Kickstarter update in my inbox a few days ago.

"I'm hoping to have the first chunks of this book to you in digital format in the coming weeks and begin wrapping it up as well."

I'm not too sure what he means by "chunks".

Re: Welcome to The Portal!

I wonder how many subscribers there actually were (I was one for awhile). I'm just assuming that simple economics is at play.

Another flash sale, another purchase (Mystical Companions). How do the Trolls expect me to put my daughter through college if they keep doing this?! ;)

Re: Crusader Companion - why not "official"?

There are two methods in the companion for determining experience point progressions for home brew classes. Are either one of those the 'official' formula?

A Series: Pieces of Eight, Krekingolg, House of Homonculous

These encounters are listed in the A series Map, but I haven't been able to find detailed descriptions for them (I have A0-A4, plus Back to, and Return to Blacktooth Ridges, and Umbrage Saga Fragments) Are these in later modules, or have they not been written up?

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

Thanks to the Troll's latest flash sale, I'm reading the Darkenfold expansion, and modules C1-C3. I'm also considering adding more of an Asian setting to my game, so I'm looking over the 1e Oriental Adventures for some inspiration.

Re: Save Question

What I find odd is that no one ever seems to bring up the point that at low levels, C&C characters are generally more powerful than 1st edition characters. Magic Users and Illusionists can cast more spells/day and Thieves Rogues have better chances of success picking locks and doing other roguish th...

Re: Metamorphosis Alpha for SIEGE?

Actually, the flowcharts did a pretty good job of mimicking attempts on figuring out how something works - if you succeed, how long it takes, possible failures (you broke it, you shot your eye out), plus just deciding after awhile to forget the whole thing and try another time. It just really stoppe...

Re: Metamorphosis Alpha for SIEGE?

I bought 1st edition GW when it first came out, and we played it pretty straight, but I guess you could play it really goofy if you wanted to. I've seen discussions on a potential SEIGE engine version of GW on various boards, and I wonder if this updated MA can be translated into that (I've never pl...

Steve made a post on the C&C Society/Knights of the crusade forums, asking for some input on the next printing of the PHB that could boost sales.

No, I have very little artistic abilities. I just did a Google image search for "Fiddler" and picked this one. It didn't seem to have any copyrights attached to it. But thanks for the compliment!

Re: Quick Question concerning Class-based NPCs

By giving the monster class levels (per the PHB), you have a measure by which you can judge the relative power of of opponent. Yes, I understand all good CKs can do the same by simply giving the monster class abilities, and increasing it's number of HD. But when adding class levels, you not only ha...
