Re: Why C&C?

Hmm, a few of us wrote up some blurbs about "why C&C" some many years ago ~ and the Trolls published them on their website (might have been the one before this one). I don't see it featured on their now main site. I couldn't find anything whilst searching. The blurbs/reviews were funny...

Re: On dungeon mapping

For online games, I do the mapping via maptools – it’s fast and easy and keeps the game moving along. Face to face games, I let the players choose who and how they map. Recalling - playing in Gary’s OD&D game some years ago, we had a mapper and a caller. But Gary was not strict about how we/him ...

Re: Dungeons of Aufstrag

Thanks for your replies! I think I might be confused as I'm looking at the PDF and trying to remember what I read a few years back. The Aufstrag dungeon is HUGE and the Citadel is very big as well (and all the other areas). The Trolls have "wards" and such and levels within. And I've been ...

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

I haven't read anything in quite a while, but picked up the AD&D 2nd Edition ~ Charlemagne's Paladins. Even if I'll never run a real world history game, it's been fun reading so far.

Re: Dungeons of Aufstrag

FYI, the Trolls published levels A13 - A17 in the Umbrage Saga Part 3 - so you'd only have to fill in the last 5.

Re: Mass Combat?

Fields of Battle by Casey is really excellent. Rigon, Treebore, Morty and I played it with Casey some years ago at Troll CON. It was fast and smooth and just loads of fun. Treebore incorporated some mass combat in our online game a few years ago and it worked very well (by limiting the masses, if yo...

That wasn't what I got out of the description of C&C's illusionist either in the PHB or CKG.
Then, perhaps you should re-read the first line of the description in PH (7th print.)
