Re: I want to play a Druid

Spotted one mistake: Bear : When your bear is hit by a melee attack, you can make a saving throw as an immediate interrupt. If you succeed, your bear is unharmed. You can add your Constitution modifier to Intimidate checks made using your bear. Wolf : When your bear is hit by a ranged attack, you ca...

Re: 4e

I have not found any mention of scrolls in the 4e books at all, and only 4 types of potions (all variations on healing). Scrolls can be found in the Rituals section on page 298. A friend told me that whenever it says "STR modifier" it means "STR ability modifier + 1/2 your level", but if that rule ...

I think it might be a fairly common method over here in blighty. We have a similar set up at the FLGS Nigel and I play at.

Good question, has a sort of odd answer. The Phoenix Games Club has been building up it's brand in the past 2-3 years. Our logo is pretty iconic (see the website) and we're looking at expanding that brand. I suppose that B/W clipart is needed for the flyers and stuff, but in terms of the website stu...

DCC #10 The Sunless Garden (C&C Style)

Well, I ran the first session of my 3-week game "The Sunless Garden" last night. Aside from a couple of whinges from one player playing the Wizard about not having a Divination spell, the group had a blast. (For those of you who are interested, this is a C&C conversion of Goodman Games DCC#10. I'm ...

The Boots of Speed incident was nasty. I gave the player a WIS check to spot the Symbol in the darkness, followed by a DEX save to avoid/jump over it. A natural 1 on the DEX save resulted so cue one stunned half-elf in direct line of the trap. Heh. Now I don't feel so bad. I can almost hear all the...

I think that if I get the chance to run it again, I'll make some revisions to my conversion. But yes, I think that the C&C players would must likely play again

Were you able to use the 1E conversion of Iron Crypt, or did you use the 3.5 version and convert to C&C yourself? 3.5 Version but I converted it to C&C myself.
