Re: How do you Evade?

As I play it, Evade is a step up from Dodge and all that holds true for Dodge holds true for Evade excepting the AC bonus and the number of opponents. So, when evading, a character can not attack, cast spells, use an item, or really do much of anything except fend off that flurry of blows. I often a...

Re: City Adventures

Its been ages since I have been part of a pure city adventure. AGES. I think it would be fun to run an adventure set entirely in a city. A thieves world type place. I would actually play a roguish character in such a situation. or maybe even an assassin. That's it, a halfling assassin. Dodo Killfeet.

Any interest in Sword and Sorcery type rules for CnC

So I have been dickering about a great deal over the past year on my home rules for Inzae. Its quite a revamp of CnC (classless, levelless, 2d10 as base roll etc) but still uses the basic philosophy and engine. So, we've tested the variants a few times (certainly not thouroghly at this point) and se...

Re: FIRST C&C GAME!

1. That way works fine. I like opposed rolls but rarely use them as the game moves faster without them. If I could figure out a way to do it quickly and secretly I would probably adopt them. I do occasionally use them. Considering that. I think I would have just had the Saber-tooth roll his stealth ...

Re: Class Racail Bonuses

Its open to several interpretations so apply as one desires. From my perspective, the 1/2 orc has to 'learn' how to use his smell again to track. It might be able to smell better and whiff out unusual oders, but to pick up a scent and gets its direction and nature is entirely different. Further, I d...

Re: Class Racail Bonuses

The 1/2 orc derives his extra tracking skill from its sense of smell. Orcs can smell really well and half orcs get this bonus to tracking checks. So, i think the rules, by the book, imply that the 1/2 orc ranger gets this bonus and non other class can. So here are the two interpretations or variatio...
