Re: YES! GLORIOUS MONSTERS! YESSS!

I'm second guessing this one for myself with a bunch of different questions:
1) It sounds like a good idea but do I really need one big book?
2) Behind the one big book, if I can wait until September 2018, why buy it now.
3) They have a lot of work in their queue.

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

I just finished reading, "Empire of Imagination". I think the author did a good job telling the story of Gary Gygax. It tells a different side of him than I thought. While I give a lot of credit to Gary, the last chapter becomes repetitive. I thought the points made about Gary's contributions were m...

Re: A0 Rising Knight

If A1 Assault on Blacktooth Ridge is next, you may want to read through that.
1) Print the PDF because the map is in the middle of the book (i.e., print the map)
2) The names and history are involved.

Re: YES! GLORIOUS MONSTERS! YESSS!

I'm a dead-tree sort of gamer. But I don't like carrying around a dozen books at all. I like the combined effort, and I'm even OK with them leaving out Tome of the Unclean and M&ToA, but there needs to be some serious consideration given to editing these creatures together, with a proper index and ...

Re: Palladium Fantasy Setting for C&C

I enjoyed some of the materials but was not interested in the system. I just found (now LOST again) a Palladium book with fortresses in the back of it that I was going to use (I bought it long ago and never used it and recently found it).

What are the 'core' campaign books of Palladium?

Re: CR for Turning Undead

From one of my old DMs, we would add in a roleplaying modifier. If you did the epic turning dead speech, it could give big benefits to your role. Little pieces of the cleric of Thor dropping down to 1 knee at the end of the speech hitting the hammer against the floor - exploding the undead with the ...

Hey Trolls! I posted to the kickstarter however I will post here as well. If the product is almost ready to go, could draft pdfs be released to edit, proof, etc. for errors. This saved Mutant Crawl Classics from printing too early therefore creating a better product the first time out the door. Thanks

Re: Cleric Domains

I like it. I think it could work well. 2E AD&D had Players Options: Skills & Powers and the clerics had a huge amount of points and allowed them to do almost anything. This seems more restrictive (which is good).

Cleric Domains

I was considering bringing over the cleric domains from 2E PHB (only 1 domain per cleric). I think if I do, I may need to bring the warrior attacks per round (1/1, 3/2, 2/1) and for wizard's the 'specialist' class that gets a boost with spells (and the restrictions). Or do you think the Domains woul...

I don't bother. The world doesn't care that you were too cheap to hire a healer, or left your Rogue at home, or didn't want to pay the 10 men at arms 2 gp each instead of 1 gp and 5 sp. I agree with this as well. 95% of the time I allow the party to run from encounters that may be too challenging. ...

I agree. I love how the level of the caster increases the DC. Likewise, I like how a lower level caster isn't likely to impact a higher level character. The biggest part to me is being "Prime".
