Re: Ethereal Plane

"Weapons need to be +1 or better to hit... cool... "

Not quite, Capt. Weapons need to be magical. So, a +1 expert sword would not hit, whereas a magical sword (with or without a to hit bonus) would hit.

Re: Question / Discussion about Delay Poison

I would rule that the wizard is immune until the potion wears off with NO avalanche effect ~ otherwise, the spell is mostly worthless.

Following up on the OP. I re-read this module and had forgotten how well written and interesting it is. Mac Golden did a great job on this.

Re: Fantastic Adventure

So, I saw that "Fantastic Adventure" is one of the oldest modules, one that actually predates C&C. Has anyone ran or played it? What can be said about it? Indeed. But, this module and a few others were not C&C adventure modules (d20) - cause they were written before C&C was created. That said, most...

Re: Lejendary Adventure, skill bundles, books

Shadows is a great module. I ran it for my group some years ago.

For beginners, though ~ I'll recommend The Rising Knight from the Trolls. First in an excellent series of modules.

Well written and fun to CK, my players really enjoyed it.

Re: AC in a Grim Gothic setting

One thing I can't bend my head around is AC. I like the idea of Pulp clothing etc giving an AC bonus in the standard pulp setting. But, when it comes to Grim Gothic, I can't see a fedora (well 1880/90s I guess it would be a bowler hat) and a trench coat giving an AC bonus. When I read Poe, or Doyle...

Re: Monday Night Ne'er-do-wells 1 off take 2

Oh yeah, a thought . . don't forget about using Victorious for you game rules. I used it and I thought it worked perfectly for my game and MotRD!

Not trying to steer the game away from AA, which I have played and like a lot, but just throwing another choice out there for consideration.

Re: Help Flying Buffalo's Rick Loomis fight Cancer

R.I.P.

Does anyone have any of this material from FB/Loomis? Is it good? Thought?

It does look and read well from the descriptions, but I always like to hear from a Crusader.

Many thanks,
