Just bought it. Definitely a worthy addition to an M&M supers game and even for a straight fantasy game with a tailored setting. I wouldn't use it for Conan though unless I was running with a strong Roy Thomas style of playing where sorcerers and wizards are always epic-level.

Sorry, meant: [Note: the following preamble requires understanding of the difference between a player and a character.]

[Note: the following preamble requires understanding of the difference between a player a character.] Depends solely on the character (being limited only by the player's comfort level).

Mongoose: Slayers Guide to Amazons

Anything worth scavenging from this book for Conan d20 now that the Players Guide has them as a racial option?

It's a "threatening" attack because it has some energy effect or such. The hands probably glow or give off sparks or look like leprosy to add some fear factor to it.

1) I'd argue no but there could be money-changers who also act as lenders.

2) I'd roll that up into the carousing rules (i.e. half the take-home gets used up each week).

Here's the official D&D rules for immediate actions:

It's right at the bottom of the article.

By it's wording, you can only perform one immediate action a round.

Lovecraftian goodies

I'm doing more conversions for the CoC critters from the d20 book. You need the d20 CoC book for most of the critter's special qualities I post. Here's my stats for the Tcho-Tcho (note this is not designed as a player race but instead as a monstrous race; hence no background skills et al). Also, ski...

I'm pleased to say mine made it unscathed. It has since already been subjected to several dings from normal usage (the problem with nice glossy hardbacks is that those stand out so well).

I really like random attributes for this style of game. It really gives you some grit when you roll low and have to accept a handicap. I compensate for those unlucky rollers however. I do d10+8 x3 and 4d6 (minus lowest roll) x3. Assign as you will but no re-rolls allowed (so there's a good chance to...

I have designed a few Cthuluoid cults for my Hyborian campaign. I treat them like Mystery religions, and each new Mystery calls for a Corruption save - but in this case, instead of the Corruption manifesting itself primarily physically, it manifests as more as insanity from CoC. You wouldn't be wil...

Corruption and insanity

Anyone got an opinion on how Corruption should fit into the Insanity rules from Unearthed Arcana (i.e. the d20 Call of Cthulhu rules)? I'm trying to write up some not-so-cumbersome rules to handle Cthulhu cults in Hyborea. I'll post what I come up when it's complete but would like to see if anyone e...
