Re: What are you reading?

Wish me luck I just started Edward Gibbon's classic "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire". I have the modern library's three volume unabridged version. So far very interesting and the archaic language is definitely forcing my brain to fire up all cylinders.

Re: Castle Keeper's Guide

Thanks; so basically it's still a few months away? And having been away myself for awhile, what's the deal with the 8th printing of the PHB? Any difference in content? Or just some layout & editing changes? I ask because I'm about to buy the 7th printing to replace the 6th printing I sold a cou...

Imaro is a Conan-esque character, but instead of a European-centric medieval world, Saunders, being African American, drew u...

Re: Your Own Private Outremere

Hi, welcome to Aihrde! I've been running my players through the Darkenfold forest adventures, with some of my own thrown in. To the best of my knowledge, and I've been buying Troll material since 2005, there is no expansion for Aenoch. That area has the most adventures, the A series though. You may ...

Re: Adventurer's Backpack...

I've found the new Druid spell Open Sinkhole (1st lvl) a real challenge. It opens up a sinkhole 10-20 feet deep and 20ft +5' per level. It can be cast under foes so they drop into the hole and take falling damage, plus are now trapped at the bottom of essentially a large pit trap. My players have us...

Re: CKG Kickstarter

If you don't already have the CKG, then yes this kickstarter will be worth it. At least, as long as you are the CK in your group. One of the best GM books on the market, I think. You will find a ton of stuff to enhance your games.

Not yet. I did the 7th ed kickstarter and bought a bunch of stuff since, including World War Cthulu, and Pulp cthulhu, but until recently I hadn't anyone in my group interested in playing it. They like C&C too much. I've also read all the Lovecraft stories.

A possible in between could be all class abilities if not prime get a +3.
Could be a good compromise and certainly wont' 'break' the game in any way.
