Re: Finally C&C!!

Ok, those that know me here know that C&C was a hard sell to my main gaming group. This group, consisting of best friends from high school, have been my core group off and on for twenty years. Gurps, Warhammer, and Battletech, and sometimes 3.5, but no one ever wanted to try C&C. Over the years I h...

Re: A new generation of Crusaders

I mentioned that I ran a C&C game a while back in a previous post. Well, one of the players recently enjoyed the game enough to buy a set of C&C, a PHB, CKG, and M&T. I stopped by his house this evening for something else, and noticed he was running a game of C&C for his two kids, one 13 another 17...

Re: Healing Question

We do it by the book. Here's why. I think the Trolls were on to some kind of genius here. If a member of the group is dropped to some negative amount of HP and is still alive, it stands to reason that the next PC in turn order should not just walk up and dump a healing potion on the down PC.

Re: Level of Technology in Your Campaign

For my C&C campaign-in-the-making, I'm going with late 12th century tech.

If I'm playing WFRP2e then gunpowder all the way.

For AD&D, gunpowder exists but is very rare.

Steampower/punk NEVER!

Re: Fate Point Idea

I like the Fate Point mechanism from WFRP2e where a small number (1-3) is determined at character creation and can be spent daily then renew on the following day. If spent to avoid death, a point is gone for good.

Re: The New "52"

DC's New "52 is a gimmick. Renumbering was not necessary. I'll continue with the books I read before the gimmick was enacted and try a few more but, IMO, more compelling stories and art will go a long way rather than yet another reboot to the universe.

Nope. Haven't done it... won't do it... not my cup o' tea. Its much more enjoyable to convert a PC to undead and then run the newly created undead as a NPC. :twisted:
