Re: Minimizing math while also balancing the "Siege Engine"

Thanks and an interesting concept. However, I'm a bit confused here - are you suggesting a "roll under"-mechanic here? If not, things get harder the further you progress in level... Or am I misinterpreting something?

Re: Half-orcs: How often do have you seen them used as PCs?

Back in the AD&D days my players often chose to play half-orcs.

And my first ever AD&D character (before I got into GM:ing) was Ugluk the half-orc fighter.

Thanks for the hard work you have put in here.

Re: Light sources and burn times

Thanks for chipping in guys. Seems like I'm in minority here for wanting clearly defined burn times, but yes I think that it would be useful. And for new CK's I would say it would be very useful. Of course, items will have some individual variation due to quality issues etc., but average times with ...

Light sources and burn times

Over at the C&C Google plus community, someone raised the question about "burn times" for various light sources (candles, torches, lanterns etc). And strangely enough, no one could find anything on the subject in the C&C core books. Of course, you could use the corresponding tables from AD&D or any ...

Anyone using milestones instead of xp for C&C?

I'm contemplating chucking the xp thing altogether and just level up the PCs when I think it's appropriate. Of course, this will mean that all classes level simultaneously and so on, which might be a bit heretical for some old schoolers. However, I really cannot see the advantage of counting xp by t...

Dungeons of Aufstrag - meaningless maps

So I've got The Dungeons of Aufstrag (A13-17) and it's a cool book, but the itty-bitty totally unreadable maps in the appendix don't make anyone happy.

Are these maps available as downloads somewhere? Because as printed, they are practically unusable...

When we're few players at the table, ...

For C&C, conversion is easy, just as described earlier in the thread. I haven't used Frog God's adventures using C&C, but I use them for ...
