World of Aihrde and Fantasy Grounds

So, I've purchased the latest printings of: Codex of Aihrde Monsters and Treasure of Aihrde Player's guide to Aihrde and I can honestly say I'm in love with these books. Now, M&T is on Fantasy grounds, and I have it, but the Player's Guide, and the Codex are not. Now, I am running an Aihrde campaign...

Aihrde Pronunciation guide?

I am really in love with this setting. It really has amazing detail and flavor that goes beyond anything I've ever seen before, and its clear that decades of work has gone into this product. The French, German, Celtic, Scandinavian influences are great. That said: Pronunciation guide? My tongue does...

'Racial' Abilities for Humans?

As I read through the Codex of Aihrde it occurs to me that one could make up a few ability modifications for each of the human divisions, giving a +1 to certain stats, and perhaps a skill to as well, making humans as attractive to play as other races. For example, giving Ethrum and Aathuk a +1 Wisdo...

Aihrde: Days of the Week?

Maybe I'm missing it, but the "After Winter's Dark" folio lists the months of the year, but I've not found a listing for the days of the week. I'm
trying to work on a Calendar for the setting so this is a bit important. Can anyone help?

Combat Movement to restrictive? House rules?

I guess its me, but I never really paid attention to how little people can move RAW in combat. Especially if you're a dwarf... and god forbid if you're encumbered at all. It seems a bit oppressive. Are most people following this, or are they house ruling to allow for the more common full move (30/20...

Okay, this seems to be evading me, or perhaps I'm looking for something that's not there. Is there a limit on how many times per day a cleric can turn undead, or
is there no limit?

Thanks!

Re: Snappy CKer One Liners Needed

Here are a few of my favs:

To players complaining about difficulty:

"That's why they call it adventuring"

or

"If anyone could do it they wouldn't need adventurers."

"Are you sure you want to do that?" *shake your head and look down*

"Of course you can try it..." *doubtful look*

Siege Engine Clarification please

So, I'm a bit unclear as to when a player DOESN'T
add, or does add their level to an ability check.

My interpretation of things are as follows:

1) Add levels if its a class ability
2) Add levels if its a prime ability
3) Add levels if its a saving throw

Is this correct? Thanks for the help.

I'm rather surprised no one has mentioned the "Ruins of Undermountain". LOVE that setting. Lots and lots of source material on the City of Waterdeep, which is above. The 'City of Splendors' is rather easy to get a hold of, as is, Volo's guide to Waterdeep. Add the Ruins of Undermountain, and you've ...

One of the things that I love about C&C is that its so easy to dust off all my old 1E and 2E D&D modules and just get into it. When my daughters both expressed a desire to try D&D, I immediately decided to start off with the classic, "Caves of Chaos". I invited two of my long time buddies from high ...
