Re: 70s & 80s Memorable Movie Themes

This new forum is annoyingly slow.

Here are four that I fondly remember:

The Streets of San Francisco
Kojak

Re: Dungeon Crawl Classics #35: Gazetteer of the Known Realm

Do we? :)

But you're right in that the gazetteer maps look more like geographical (and not even good ones at that) than game maps. Personally, I prefer good maps above geography. :)

Re: Dungeon Crawl Classics #35: Gazetteer of the Known Realm

Great setting. I'm running a campaign in it since two years, centered on Castle Whiterock in the Kingdom of Morrain, and we all have a lot of fun with this game world. The only BIG drawback for me are the crappy, too large, and often barely readable maps. These I really despise, but the rest is firs...

Re: "Nouveau Retro" Modules From Other Publishers

Expeditious Retreat Press is my favorite publisher for retro modules. So far, each and every one of them looks and feels very much 1st edition to me. More than most of the DDCs to be honest. Although there are a few gems among these (Castle Whiterock, The Gazetteer, and every module written by Harle...

It was a character from an ancient campaign that we played back in 1983 or something, and when this new campaign started sometime in the 90s I pulled out that old character sheet and asked the DM whether I could play him once again.

Serl, there's actually a whole adventure based around this, written by Bruce Cordell. It was a freebie on the web, but I don't know if it's still out there. I do, however, have it on my PC. In case you or anyone else is interested, I can upload it for you.

Expedition the the Demonweb Pits. Although I don't particularly like the whole plot idea, this module has some very nice ideas and elements. If I play it someday, I think I'll rewrite at least parts of the main plot to make it better suited to my campaign world.

I like magic items that come along with a full history, especially when they're items of an unusual kind. Not every +1 sword needs one, but those that are rare or even unique should always have one.

<t>For some scenarios, yes. But in general, I was surprised to see that many adventures were challenging even for high-level characters.

I agree about CC3, but unless you want to spend many frustrating hours trying to figure out how it works, you should better know someone to show you. The learning curve is steep indeed, but once you have mastered it, you have a program that offers you all.
