Post Rise of the Runelords (C&C Style)
Alright. We got together for a session of character generation and general discussion tonight. Well be playing through the Pathfinder, Rise of the Runelords, Adventure Path.

Im wanting to try a few new things with this game, so some of the notable house rules for this campaign will be:
Primes: Humans get three prime attributes, demi-humans get two. The primes can be chosen freely and characters are not required to take a prime in an attribute generally associated with their class. This means that an elven ranger could choose WIS and DEX as primes without having to have STR as a prime.
Bonus Ability: Each character gets to chose a bonus ability. These abilities have been adapted from the bonus feats found in the Rise of the Runelords Players Guide.
Secondary Skills: The CZ: Class Options & Skills secondary skills will be used. However, they will be gained using the method Antonio posted on the board.
Multi-Classing: The multi-classing rules from CZ: Class Options & Skills will be used. No dual-classing will be allowed.
Critical Hits: Characters who roll a natural 20 to hit in combat will get to draw a card from the Critical Hit Deck and apply the results. Major NPCs and monsters will also get to utilize the Critical Hit Deck.
Sorcerer: The Sorcerer class from Colin Sez Volume 1 is an allowed class.

Good to hear, I'm waiting on Pathfinder as well, with the intent of running it as a C&C campaign. I'll be looking forward to any CJ updates.

Julian Grimm has been kind enough to allow me to keep a Pathfinder section on his Raven's Keep forums. There I'll be posting C&C conversions as they come up as well as the campaign journal as I take my group through this adventure path.

You can find the forums here.

I've posted our first session there already.

The forums will remain a work in progress as far as conversions go.

And a very nice forum it is! Just from what you have posted on the first session I may have to get Pathfinder now!

Wow, that seems like a lot of gaming for one night. (The way my group works we'd be lucky to get the battle in the town square finished). Sounds like things are off to a good start, hope to hear more.

How has the Critical Hit Deck worked out for you? Do you consider it a worthwhile addition to your game?

Thanks,

Bill

I like the critical hit deck, I just don't feel it is right for C&C. A lot of the cards gie attribute damage, which just doens't fit in with C&C to well.

sadly, no. My C&C RotR game died.

I'm still running two RotR games, just not with C&C. One is using 2nd Edition and the other is Rifts.

My C&C group is currently playing a mini-campaign in the Midnight setting.

Too bad, I was enjoying the CJ. I think I'll give this a try next time I'm behind the screen.
