Re: Missing 1st Ed Cleric Spells

As for adding specific spells from AD&D? There are a handful I plan to add but it will be over time. I plan to introduce them as scrolls or holy scriptures that detail long lost magics. It will be something special when the wizard finds some scroll to a lost spell that to his knowledge, he is th...

Re: Missing 1st Ed Cleric Spells

If you give your made an elemental bolt with the option to choose their damage type (cold, fire, lightning, magic) it gives them the option to a...

Re: Greyhawk - A 1980 Darlene inspired recreation!

Well there is one thing I have to say about that $12 print. I get my maps printed as Blueprints at Staples for $12. Their Blueprint printer cannot handle lots of colors and the back and forth printing will cause the machine to jam with the thing BP paper. So I ordered it anyways and the kid there de...

Re: A question

Back attack is many vectors easier than sneak attack. See I really disagree there. Back Attack is basically the equivalent of the AD&D Backstab. So the Rogue needs to catch the victim unaware either by hiding in shadows or moving silently....or both depending on the situation. The attack must b...

C&C Adventures located in Greyhawk?

So after much deliberation I decided that I am not going to be running the Aihrde setting but instead running Greyhawk in CY 576. For any that know, that is the 1st Edition AD&D Greyhawk setting at the same time period Gary Gygax and the TSR authors were writing their adventures for. Everything ...

Re: Picked up C&C -very disappointed...

...that it took me so long to pick these books up. Seriously though, I'm verily satisfied so far; I even felt nostalgic when I saw the picture of the pig-like orc in the monster book. I'm really looking forward to Gming ( Cming? ) this, so I can't wait to pull out some old first edition AD&D mo...
