Burning Oil AND Quicksand

First off, thanks for the posts regarding Burning Oil. https://trolllord.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16768&p=248931&hilit=flaming+oil&sid=f8ee8c15f6f2de8b8e24370b2df22e20#p248931 I'm planning an encounter where party members are at the top of a 15 foot round pit that goes 45 feet down into "quick...

Re: How do you handle multiclass?

I have used the "multi-classes" from Astonishing Swordsmen. I just replace skill checks with C&C Siege Engine checks. I'm not familiar with that? I have the AS&SH 1E boxset but I don't see multi-class (subclass?) would love to hear more. --- As for me I ran Class-and-Half BTB thus far with C&C and ...

Re: Looking to run some C&C

Hi -

I've had success with Facebook groups such as: Old school D&D Group Finder: 1e AD&D, 2e AD&D, BECMI, B/X and retro-clones and RPG Connection

Another guy swiped some away from a local meet-up group and also from a 5e Adventures League by posting in a game store.

Good Luck.

Re: Origins, Cleveland Concoction, & Gary CON

Level: I would say levels 7-9 or even higher. I think games below level 5 are common. Setting? Generic. And while I say that, a recent con game I was involved in was Greyhawk based and some came to the event for that very reason. Hours? While I understand 4 hours is the norm, I think 6 hours gives ...

Spell: Wall of Thorns

This is an incredibly wicked spell (or I allowed too much to happen). In running G2 Against the Giants, the druid in the party used this spell to ensnare the 14 foot tall frost giants. The damage from this spell can really wear down the hit points of a giant. Should it not be able to be cast around ...

Re: GM Hidden or Open Dice [Old Topic]?

I will roll dice behind the screen. If it’s a dire combat, both the party are coming down to the final blows, I’ll roll the dice right out across the table. For me, the referee, there has been epic fails against the party and some humbling wins.

Re: Knights of the Crusade

I think we go do it. Share the idea. Create a new experience.
It's a good game and keeps things simple.

The part is giving some swag to people who play at a table and some swag to those who promote the game. :)

Re: Knights of the Crusade

I would like to see C&C be more popular. I really feel it's a good game.
I've introduced at least 15 people to it with conventions, etc.
Truly just like D&D was spread with playing games and word of mouth.

In watching a video of what's new with Goodman Games / GenCon 2018, they spoke about their Goodman Games World Tour 2018 / Road Crew.

They keep track of their swag and games run, etc. Has this been considered for C&C?

Welcome to the game... just play it by a book a few times.. see how it works, THEN convert to the game. I agree with this 100%. While there's a lot of good advice from the other posts, make it your own. It's C&C. It doesn't need to be technical. It doesn't need to be precise. Enjoy it. Change it. G...

For me, a silver badge is generally the best option. I will be playing and GMing more therefore I think I will be good with a Silver. If you want to have a great con, do this: 1.
