WorldWide GaryCon This Weekend!

So if you plan to sling the dice this weekend, let everyone know! If you haven't in a while, dust those books off and get y...

Need a suitable screensaver for a C&C gaming laptop

<t>So, I'm converting my laptop into a gaming computer for C&C and all my gaming stuff. Any thoughts on a screen saver out there that would be appropriate for C&C in the fantasy RPG vein of things? (And yeah, WoTC's D&D screensaver isn't in the running--too game-specific). Pity there isn...

This Might Be a Hopeless Search...

<t>Hey guys,<br/> <br/> As you know, I'm very exited about getting C&C and starting up a campaign. I was thinking last night and seem to remember at Gen Con a year or so ago TLG was handing out these little pamphlets with quick-start rules or somesuch there in. Does TLG still have any of these, ...

Hey, I will definitely check that out.

That's the other thing I like from what I've heard of C&C--the games doesn't break under houseruling--I've been told it's built for it.

Hi there, guys. Zacharythefirst here, and this is my first foray onto the TLG boards. I've been buying the Gygaxian Fantasy books for a while now (I'm a compulsive worldbuilder!), but since I returned from my overseas stint with the USAF in places like Korea, Spain, and the Sandbox, I've been kickin...
