This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Back in the Old School
« on: May 22, 2006, 10:56:52 PM »
Right. After much deliberation and a few weeks of Feng Shui, I have decided to run a campaign using the Classic Known World Gazetteers as the setting  and Castle & Crusades as the system.

Now I've heard a lot of things about C&C. What I want to know esp from people who use the system - is there any bugbears in the system that I should be aware off ? Also can I easily intergrate the system with the CKW setting? I'm using all the gazetteers so they will be a lot of stuff to modify.

I'm not going to make any major changes to the setting except when it comes to modifying it to fit the C&C rules. So has anyone ever used these gazetteers before in this way before? I have most of them but never had the chance to use them...although I remember liking what I read.

It's been many years since I ran a trad fantasy campaign so is there anything I should keep in mind when running something like this? I going for a black and white, good vs evil  epic scope. Characters would start off at first level and work their way to immortalhood...maybe.

I really do not want to change much of the setting. I will of course design my own campaign so, are there any modules/adventures(D&D or anything else) that are online that I could use? My group likes a good mix of role playing and combat.

I know I'm on a major nostalgia high here, so comments are wellcome. I think I may need a good dose of reality, esp when it comes to the system and setting :)
