My C&C Game at SnowCon Maine

Post by Demiurge »

I ran a game of C&C for a mixed group of 2e and 4e D&D players at SnowCon this weekend and it was a big success! I went with the same approach I took with my players, I explained the basics of the Siege mechanic (10 minutes max) and then we just ran with it. They picked it up very quickly and all said they enjoyed the game and liked the fast pace. One of the fellows even came back as I was packing up to thank me again and to let me know it was the best gaming session of the con for him. :D

The module I used was The Crypt of Istaris from Dungeon magazine. I ran it with very few changes (one beastie gets more spells in C&C) and since it was designed as a tournament module, it was a good fit for a convention game.

Here are the players discussing their next move:

What issue is that in? I'm always on the look-out for a good con-appropriate module.

It was in Dungeon #9 and re-printed in Dragon #155 for 2e. It has a 4-hour game time deadline before bad things happen, which helps keep the pace brisk and makes it great for a 4-hour con event.
