But the kicker, and I agree with the way Al does it, is there is no averaging or percentage taking of XP. The XP requirements are flat out added to each other. So, he...

<t>Am I the only one who thought the multi-classing rules from Crusader were too generous? Multi-class characters in C&C far outstrip their comrades in terms of power and utility. My last character, a Rogue/Wizard using Al Krombach's rules which are quite restrictive level-wise, was half the lev...

Texas, Ohio, and the Upper Midwest - they get all the freakin' action. Half-Price Books has more stores within a couple of hours of Milwaukee than they have in the entire state of California. That's a pretty localized chain.

So there's no mistake, all but three of these are painted and modded by Don F. Moss. Mine are the three crappy ones you see in the very first post. The rest are painted by Don. The characters are not his creation, but the paint is all his.
