Re: Cursed Democrazy! *spits*

You'd have to ask my players what the City State of the Invincible Overlord, etc... is like. I don't think I present them as Democratic... Plus my players have never run for an office, they kill the guy that had it, and take over. Nice little town ya got here. Be a shame if somethin' were to happen...

Re: D&D 4th ed/5th ed/Pathfinder GM Considering C&C

One more under the hood question: How do I know how many foes a group can face at one time? I know pre-3e games don't have encounter guidelines. But the problem I have is if I throw 4 kobolds at a level group in 4e I know it's going to be a moderate fight. In Pathfinder I know there's an outside ch...

Re: D&D 4th ed/5th ed/Pathfinder GM Considering C&C

I was putting together some houserules to make D&D 5th edition feel more like AD&D when it was pointed out the direction I was headed was very much replicating Castles & Crusades. I've read reviews for C&C before and moved on because of the wonky DC 12/18 (except when a GM says it's...

Well...I am displeased with myself. The pacing was uneven and I feel that really took away from what this session could have been for the players. I thought it worked fine.

Sounds interesting, although completing a whole module as a one off might be a wee bit optimistic (then again, the way we play, the module might well end tonight, just not with player victory :lol: )
