Re: Town of Kalas - mini adventures?

I would simply adjust the number of monsters, hit points, etc as the battle continues.
If you're hitting too hard in one encounter, maybe lay off the damage, etc.
Continue to adjust until you find what's working.

Going in too easy - generally lets the players feeling good.

Re: Saving Throws

Re: Saving Throws.

Does anyone make all the DCs for spells start at 18 and characters who are prime in the save get a +6 when making the saves?

That way the 7th Wizard when casting a spell has a DC of 25. And each player must beat that score.

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

I've been going through gaming material. I found a Palladium book: Book II: The Old Ones.

It's loaded with information on cities and forts. The forts are especially awesome.

I'm impressed by some of the material that is so clean and concise but pulls you in as something you can run.

Re: Saving Throws - a quick reference

Additionally, are there any thoughts on saving throws that a natural 20 and natural 1 are auto-success and auto-failure?

It may be a rule we found in 2E AD&D and we kept going with (maybe 3E).

Saving Throws - a quick reference

Hey - I had seen on a forum or blog from someone a nice write-up on how saving throws/DC work. Could someone point me to an example?

Background: Running a game for some folks and I want to give a section on their character sheet on how spell saves and DCs work.

We're dealing with a rules light old school gaming product and becoming involved with C&C means you're taking a different road. It's a tough gritty system.
