Re: Kickstarter for 7th Printing PHB up [look carefully]

I have to agree with Buttmonkey on this one. I'm thinking that C&C is reaching a saturation point where all the people who want to play it have it in some form or another. Other companies at this point would be busting out their computers and beginning work on a second edition, but TLG doesn't want ...

Re: 6th Printing PHB Errata

Serleran understands my thought process here. The initial document is done in Word, then the text is imported into Adobe InDesign for layout. However, I never had access to a Word document when doing the PHB. Even if I did I guarantee that the spell checker wouldn't find all the spelling errors, and...

Re: 6th Printing PHB Errata

It's a matter of priorities. Spelling errors have a very low priority compared to mechanics fixes, and a game with its mechanics working correctly can survive spelling errors. No matter how many spelling errors are found, more will crop up simply because we're fallible creatures, and sometimes gloss...

Re: 6th Printing PHB Errata

I'll be completely honest. I'm willing to live with spelling errors at this stage of the game, so long as they aren't on the front or back covers. What I want to see is any lingering mechanics issues corrected. Things like missing modifiers, incorrect modifiers, and confusing text. For example, miss...

Re: Save for Half Episode #1: "Doctor Who RPG by FASA"

A big part of the problem with FASA Dr. Who is that the system is essentially the FASA Star Trek system, with some bits bolted on to try and hide its origins. These days, with Cubicle 7's far superior product FASA Dr. Who is pretty much a curiosity and nothing more. Though, your mention of the game ...

I don't have spare time to exhaustively comment on these, but regarding the Illusionist Disguise ability, I believe the lack of an intimate modifier is deliberate. I'll check my notes when I'm able, as well as check the rest of these.

Scimitars are listed as swords in the 6th print equipment list because that is what they are. They just happen to have a curvature to the blade. However, that's beside the point, which is that the Great Scimitar should have an asterisk next to it, as it is a two-handed weapon. As to what swords a dr...

All that's happening is one lonely person out there, attempting to impose his warped view of political correctness on a community that really doesn't care. The rpg.net thread should have told him that, but he was too myopic to see it.

The only problem with using Aihrde or most other gaming maps is they don't provide the entire world, but only a section.

That's what house rules are for. I pointed out OD&D because Castles & Crusades emulates OD&D on this point, in that they leave the specific effects for the CK to determine.
