Adjuncts and skills

Post by kwheatonca »

In the description of the CKG I see no mention of adjuncts or skills. Are these still to be included?

A sneak peak of Adjuncts way included in the February issue of The Crusader magazine. That alone would make it seem like adjuncts were going to be in the CKG, but, who really knows. They most likely will be as I doubt they would cut that material.

As for skills, there was mention of having several different skill systems included in the CKG. But no definite word at this point yet.

No one but Steve can say what exactly is in the CKG. He's the one compiling, writing, re-writing (to make various author styles "sound" in unison, in addition to clarifying or fixing issues), and deciding.... and, he's not posting that stuff here, so... umm, we can assume whatever is mentioned in the product blurb will be included, but in what depth, dunno.

I am confident that the CKG will be out before Christmas this year. Steve has literally locked himself away from the world to finish this thing. I think we will be surprised at the progress even a month from now. No, no, I haven't been drinking....much. I have good vibes about this.

Totally random here, but do we know for sure if Adjunct rules are in?

I keep reading Twitter daily to see how far we have to go, and the progress looks very promising.

The CKG is going to be so much awesomeness. Very much looking forward. Bring on THE TOME Troll duders.

HELP STEVE!

Post by Relaxo »

ok

I just did my preorder, entered my credit card and it (the shopping basket application) went back to the beginning as if I hadn't entered it.

i'm reluctant to enter it again and be charged twice by accident (Even though I know you'll make it right ASAP)

so.... did an order go thru, or do I need to confirm my account first or something?

we all knew he would, but credit where credit is due = Steve took care of my order very professionally once he knew the cart wasn't working for me.

TLG has one of the industries best customer service. So, does SJ Games, Vajra Enterprises and I understand Mongoose also. Those three leap to my mind first.

The worst is easily Cheapdice.com and not as bad as them Guild of Blades and West End Games. Near the end both and Cheapdice.com, Guardians of Order actually stole from customers.

For bad ethics Palladium (Writers not so much customers) and Outlaw Games (Artists not customers.)

The Trolls are in the the sorcerer's lab, mixing strange potions and in bubbling cauldrons that they shouldn't! What kind of monstrosity will be begotten due to this mischief?!?

I tell you what, I will order the Trolls some real sugar Dr Pepper from Texas when the CKG is on the market. They are not to drink it but to bathe in it and absorb the vital nutrients of the cane sugar and 23 spices!

Steve is actually into chapter 19, which is the last chapter to be written. This thing may be into editing next week. Layout is underway by the famous Peter Bradley already, so we may see this out in 2 weeks folks. Awesome!

All you mature and patient people SHUSH it!!

I want it now!! I don't care if its on a written in red lipstick and on a used barbeque covered tablecloth with the letters D and E missing. Friggin finish the damn thing.

I'm a 40 year old Castle Keeper living on the edge and the only thing standing between me and a room full of crazed foaming at the mouth C&C players is the few core books I have,my less than Razor sharp wit and a willingness to steal from every last good story or idea on the planet.

SEND HELP SOON!

Gimmie that dang book!
