Re: DB1 regional map ?

I see that the author himself roams this very forum from time to time ... Any answer about that missing map, Mr. Bowbe ? ;)

DB1 regional map ?

I've got both the "old" DB1 and the "CK's Guide to the HH" and the DB1 regional map seems to be missing from the CK's Guide or am I missing something ?

Yes.
I don't see why not in my personal view of what gaining XP and levels means for the character.
But as a player, I totally respect the GM's choice to use training and "delayed" benefits.

Re: Training for level up

I don't do training in my games. My point is: the characters practice/try/train/research themselves during adventuring and downtimes, and when they level up, it's just an acknowledgement of this past training. So any perks or be benefits gained by the new level is immediately usable.

Because I have a family of 5, who plays C&C, and we bought 3 to 5 copies of every printing. Except the first. Plus I got one or two of the convention only printings. It makes sense. Considering I've already have 3 of those (one 4th and two 5th printing), and I'll probably buy the 6th printing, I ca...

Which brings me to OHR#2: Clerics & Druids can exchange any spell in memory for a healing spell of the same level. In this way they can memorize other spells and not have to use up slots with "Cure X Wounds"... multiple times. When they need them, they convert to them. Another solution is to use ma...

Re: Starting level for a new campaign

I'm a big fan of encouraging players to make full use of torchbearers, porters, men-at-arms, guard dogs and/or henchmen at low-level. Basically fantasy equivalents to the "red shirts" of Star Trek fame. Henchmen also have the benefit of being good candidates for promotion to player characters when ...

Re: Aihrde Map -- Details on it....

I like world maps with crowded regions (pointed to places described in modules or setting books) and some less detailed areas, left to the creativity of the DM, and his own developments of the setting. One of the best examples I've seen recently is the (partial) world map of Numenera, where a lot of...

Hi Keepers. I was wondering : do you make your players' character start at level 1 ? If so, do you kill a handfull of them before some survive to higher levels, or try to spare them with (very) easy adventure ?

Re: Low-level C&C adventures (lvl 1-3)

Thanks to all for the input.
Just for the record, I bought and will be using "I1 Into the Unknown: Vakhund".
And I've looked at the old U1 and U2 old Ad&d modules.
And to some of the latest DCC (Dungeon Crawl Classics) modules from Goodman Games (good stuff !).

Hi CKs. I'm a lurker of the forum and reader of the C&C books for some time (since 2011) but only recently had the opportunity to run a few games. I've "CKed" only 3 times (with different groups) and I used only "U1_Shadows Over The Halfling Hall", wich is a great short introductory adventure, imho....
