So when will we see more stuff added to the Portal? According to the log I looked at a few days ago it was last updated the first week of June.

I've had some issues with the site, including making some improvements to the speed of it.  I've got some more done but am waiting to make sure the upgrades work before putting them in, hopefully early this week.

For all those crusaders using C&C PDF files and a tablet, find a PDF reader that crops pages to make things way easier to read, cause it will enlarge all the text.

Here is the Player's Handbook uncropped and cropped.

GoodReader on iOS will crop

Xodo PDF Reader and eBookDroid on Android will do it.

I'm new to C&C - going to attempt to get my group to shift from 5e D&D.  Two things I'm curious about: weapon reach and size in initiative.  I like the idea that reach matters, allowing pole-arms and large creatures to act first.  Does anyone extent that to medium creatures striking before small ones?  Also, with small creatures, do most groups limit what weapons they can use?  Or, do you do anything like allow a "gnome-sized" two-handed sword, but it does 1 die less damage or something?  Thanks in advance, and please let me know if there's a better place to post questions like these.

Thanks for the replies.  I just wasn't sure if there was any kind of "accepted convention" on these things in the C&C community or not.  It's the type of thing that I'm quite sure my group of players would ask about: "Well, if a large creature gets advantage on reach vs. M or Sm, then wouldn't it stand to reason that a Med size should get reach advantages vs. Sm creatures?"  Call it the transitive property of Munchkins :)  I do like the edge that polearms provide in this - gives a slight advantage, but not game breaking.

I'm planning to run some C&C for my kids this summer. Perfect for rainy days. Any advice for a good adventure to start with? The kids are 14 and 10 years old and have played Mentzer D&D and S&W before.

...and for adults who thinks its a cool challenge to play little creatures and survive with them in a BIG world. (BIG fan of Mouse Guard here.)

Well, when the Trolls start spamming us via all our old KS and pledge manager e-mails, at least it motivates me to finally unsubscribe to all of the ones that have been fulfilled. :D

Funny. Even as slow as they are, they probably would have had Castle Zagyg finished by now and Jeff Talanian would probably still be in their ranks had the IP not been foolishly pulled by Gygax Games. Lejendary Adventures would be in print, too.

Sorry. Lack of activity from GG and Gary's products remaining off the market for 8 years is irksome.

Portal Suggestion

I would much prefer if the portal had the buttons across the left hand side or the right hand side, and when you clicked on one, it would update the content in the same window as the buttons. That way I don't have to keep closing windows.

Three inventions, one of which is TRPG-related: What if there was a family friendly Tabletop RPG web series?

Our group finally had another session tonight and the party began its investigation of the ancient ruins. After some solid role playing and a slightly challenging encounter with ghoul monkeys, I ask the players to roll for random treasure found on the remains of a previous adventurer who died in a pit trap discovered in the ruins. The player rolls up a holy symbol and relic in successive dice rolls. And just like that, BOOM another campaign seed is created. On the fly, in the moment, I create a broad story of an ancient holy warrior who disappeared fighting evil and was later beautified and granted sainthood by his church. And the PCs have, rather by accident, stumbled upon his holy symbol and a relic (partial piece of bone) in this ancient sprung pit trap in the ruins. But why is his revered holy weapon not in the pit with his holy symbol? Who, or what, could have taken the weapon? hhhhmmmm... Great way to end the session tonight, +Jim Gill +Zack Gill +Steve Collins +Ronald Collins +Ian Guswiler
