Lord Dynel wrote: Okay. Now that I'm seeing the bonuses and penalties in examples, it's starting to work for me a little better. I can get a better picture of the class that way. Yup, now at 17th level as mentioned the Wizard could cast 4 CL's, but the Arcanist, when attempting the 1st CL would nee...

Doesn't really match the spirit of C&C but it could very well work for your group. I would recommend just an alterna...

Lord Dynel wrote: The biggest issue I see, koralas (and I hope you don't mind some criticism ), is the check for spellcasting. Don't get me wrong, the class is very interesting, but looking at your example of making the check for a 9th level spell is a little rough. At 18th level, other casting cla...

New Class - The Arcanist

<t>Ok, digging more from the archives. Here is a class we used back in the day, the Arcanist. An arcane spell caster that fills a niche between a Magic-User (Wizard) and the d20 Sorcerer. He is not tied to his spell books as is a Wizard, but still requires studying to keep his spells fresh in mind. ...

<t>Kings, Queens, Princes, Dukes, and such do not necessarily have to have a class or be of a high level. In fact, in many instances, the higher level royalty have little chance to gain meaningful experience as they live a mostly sheltered life. This does not mean that they do not have exceptional s...

<t>Somethings I have thought about this...<br/> <br/> I would jack the HD, d6 is minimum, depending on how much combat you think they would see, perhaps even a d8<br/> <br/> Second, the armor, what do you consider light armor? EV2 or less? 10, 15, or 20lbs or less? Consider at EV2 the best you can w...

Ah, a rework on the class...

Hmm, maybe this becomes somewhat redundant then... still I'd like input and if there is interest, I'll post up further updates as I complete them.

Barbarians as a sub-race

<t>Ok, all the talk of the Barbarians thread made me dig out my old 2E notebook with the notes on the Barbarian sub-race. Looking at it, it still holds up pretty good, but needs some tweaking, and I have also reformatted it as the other races in the PHB. What I have here, is a start, but not the who...

Farewell Gary

<t>I had the privilege of meeting Gary only once, at GenCon Indy last year. I came to the Troll Lords booth to check out Castle Zagyg, found C&C and waited in a long line to have Gary autograph my copy of the Town Halls (I had purchased Yggsburg the day before, and came back to pick up the rest ...

After a rabid start having played my first game in the "Mansion of Mad Professor Ludlow" as a troupe of Boy Scouts (1st level fighters, but with a huge amount of hitpoints) out on a camping outing, we heard a lady scream from ...
