Re: Settings you have never played / ran, but would like to ?

I've never played in Aihrde, although I have some of the modules. Still don't know much about it, but sounds like a fun place to adventure. Is it anything like Greyhawk?

Re: What are you reading?

Currently reading The Treason of Isengard. Looking for another good historical fiction or fantasy series. I tried the first book in the Arthur series by Bernard Cornwell, but only got through a bit before putting it down. It was disappointing compared to the Last Kingdom series, which I loved.

Re: How many players do you like to have in your gaming group?

I like 5 - 6 players. Our Monday night group seems to work best with that number.

Re: The Monsters know what they are doing

I can't. I can barely moderate it, not touch board configuration - that takes actual admin access. What I MEAN is that whomever has the POWER should do that. If you are a Mod you SHOULD be able to contact an Admin. No? No. I can contact just as many persons as you can. Besides, I don't even know wh...

Sooooo you are a setting snob :lol:
Well... it's just been my favorite, and it's what we played in the early 80's when I gamed the most. Nentir Vale was fun, as was Kingdoms of Kalamar as well. I think a lot depends on how the DM handles.

Now that will come down to how much you trust your players, but I feel if you are in a group that would cheat like that you may not want to be in that group . Agreed.

I don't allow multi-classing anymore. I like the simplicity and cleanness of one character, one class.

Re: innovation to help games run smoother

we roll initiative once at the beginning of each combat and it stays in that order for the rest of combat. I used to roll d10 +1 if DEX is prime, highest to lowest... Now I'm experimenting with a roll of 2d4... more centered around middle and the DEX prime can move folks out and those with special ...

Sarosious, Half Elf Ranger, 8th level Lupa-spadar Vinardi – Wolfsword Wine-son (Polite way of being called a bastard) House ruled home brew Swashbuckler class The same game as Sarosisus was in, and since Lupa was his drinking companion, that HAS to be why he is your favorite C&C character ;-) Indeed!

Re: Adventurer's Backpack...

Arcane thief, Archer, Divine Knight, Ethereal Knight, Foresworn, Magic User, Oathsworn, Pacer, Primal Druid, Rune Mark, Seeker, Skald, Thief, Warrior Priest. I don't think any of these make the PHB classes obsolete. I haven't dug deep into the spells, but from a quick glance they aren't world shaking.

Re: C&C Adventures located in Greyhawk?

Sounds awesome. I've inserted a few one off's into my Greyhawk campaign, mostly as filler between modules. I'm running my son through a bunch of old AD&D modules already set in Greyhawk. 576 was the start of my timeline as well.
