A few questions about the setting

1. I was reading the Airde setting guide and under Orcs, their listing says that they worship Agrol (second after the Big Bad). But there is no listing in the section for that under deities or in the index. Google is not cooperative on this. 2/3. (Less important, since I'll give this another read-th...

Re: Backstabbing During Melee

I was reading in a carcass crawler zine for OSE which discussed adjudication of back stab. Their approach was quite liberal. If the rogue can physically get behind the baddy, give them the bonus, no rolling needed. The reason behind such a shocking (to me) approach was that combat in and of itself ...

Re: Siege complaints

How/could Siege saves be modified to be more class-specific? I wouldn't want to reinvent the wheel. Apologies for butting in. The two solutions I see are: 1. Substitute the 1e D&D charts. Might need to start with those, but then adjust them. 2. Make up your own chart that overlays on top of the...

Re: New to C&C, a few questions

Before using any of the options other than the different attribute bonus charts on page 11 I'd play the system straight for a bit as and get a feel for the PC vs monster power levels. Skill based casting makes caster more powerful. Luck and crits adds a lot of randomity into combat and make it a bi...

New to C&C, a few questions

Hi all! First, the context: So, I've been playing D&D for a while (starting with the red box in ~'84, going to 1e, 2e &5E) and decided to go with C&C. I managed to get my current 2e D&D group to agree to switch over to C&C as soon as we finish our current thing, so they should be...
