Re: Anyone else feeling spammed by TLG?

What I did was unsubscribe from the feeds of completed Kickstarters. That helped a ton.

I love the Trolls, but when I see 3 e-mails from them about the same thing, it's time to take action.

Re: New C&C Logo and graphic vest. ANd many other questions!

Hi, all. Been a while.

I wanted to commend the Trolls on the new logo. When I saw it, I automatically thought of the Greyhawk logo, which I'm guessing was the intent.

Keep up the good work!

Re: Best psionics system for C&C

2. They seem to fit well in modern and scifi settings, but not so sure about fantasy. Then I ponder ERB's Barsoom setting, which clearly makes use of psionics and I can't quite decide if it's fantasy or not. Tough call. There are plenty of instances in fantasy literature of people with mind powers....

Re: Any C&C podcasts?

what's a podcast? Lose 50 XP. (Kidding!) Seriously, a podcast is a radio show that is downloadable to your computer and able to be put on a mobile device, such as an iPod (hence the name). People can make them in their own homes for a minimal cost. My advice would be to start with a really good one...

Any C&C podcasts?

Hey, all. Just de-lurking a bit tonight.

Saw something about a C&C actual play podcast, which got me to thinking. Are there any C&C podcasts out there that aren't actual play?

Thanks in advance.
