Re: Amethyst 4th Edition - New Color Cover

I don't like this new cover. The d20 edition one was more evocative... At least to me. On the french forum I go to, 100% of the comment were" if I saw the cover of the old edition, I'd stop and take a look at the book (and certainly buy it because it seems interesting)". The new cover makes everybod...

Re: How big is your group?

My main group is getting thinner and thinner. The economic situation has made people less available for gaming (taking second jobs, wife taking a job, doing Ot, etc.). My 4E Castle Whiterock campaing is at hold, just when they had found the pasage to the 3rd level, and after having dealt with some i...

Re: DCC #53 Sellswords of Punjar--My C&C game

Half the fun for me, when I DMed T1-4, was watching my players trying to figure out what was going on with the Temple. Why four elements? What did the eye have to do with it? Exactly WHO is behind this massive undertaking? That really made the module for me. Sure, the backstory is great, but the Te...

Re: Castle Whiterock- game report

Funny enough, the characters in my CW campaign have been hired by a company called 'The Pack of the White Wolf'. If seems that a mercenary company had some trouble and and a split. Of course, for now, the company knows nothing about a Black Pack. Excellent. That's a great twist! It was mainly to ha...

Re: DCC #53 Sellswords of Punjar--My C&C game

Thanks! If you have a new crew who did not cut their teeth on Gygax, the Temple of Elemental Evil and following can't be beat! Honestly, I don't like much ToEE. The first part (Hommlet and Moathouse) is really nice, the temple by itself, I'm not a big fan. I would probably fill the missing levels w...

Hey, those are the first modules, the layout can only imporve from there. I think that in general, the monster stats take too much space.

As I couldn't get to GenCon, I had to do something of my evenings and week end. Now, as a weekly session, I run Castle Whiterock with 4E. We've been through #51.5 In 3 sessions of about 3-4 hours (but they spent much time in the town in the begining). Of course, I didn't play the module as is, I nev...

Some people saty with 3.5 AND play 4.0 at the same time (like me). Are they in the 30% or in the 70%. Most of the people that said that they wanted to stay in 3.5 now play both because: - they like 4th edition - many GM have turned to 4E because it's easier to DM - people play what the DM propose wh...

The thing is that you can't convert them, and you shouldn't try to. Let's take Halls of the Minotaur as an example. The first encounter is with 3 wild dogs. It's a good low encounter for level 0 DD3.5 characters. But for level 1 DD4 characters, I've chosen 3 Gray Wolves that are in the 4E monster ma...
