Gen Con was really a great time!
I sat in on a panel discussion featuring Professor Dungeonmaster, Ben Milton (Questing Beast), and Baron de Ropp (Dungeon Masterpiece).
Played a few games (Star Trek Adventures (2d20), Cypher System, The Black Flag rpg (from Kobold Press), and best of all I was able to run some late night games for friends using the Cairn RPG system and Tiny d6.

My son and daughter-in-law came along and had a wonderful time. They want to go back next year.

I bought some new dices, a few battle mats from Pathfinder, the Dungeon Alphabet book by Michael Curtis, and some indie developed games and adventures.

I'm not sure Lou is wacky enough to make those dice.

Question: if the cleric isn’t in the front line, can he apply a CLW to someone who is in front of him fighting?

Interesting question - the rules show the spell as touch/immediate, which seems to allow this. However, because the Cleric will be within melee distance once he touches the recipient of the spell (implying he has to enter melee or already be within it to cast it), this should be forbidden. I think, given melee is very abstract in S&W and represents lots of implied movement, that it still might be risky for the cleric even if allowed. I'd say that for this game, the recipient still needs to exit combat somehow to have CLW (or any) spell cast on them.

Makes sense. Interesting that only beneficial spells are touch, no attack spells!
S&W is definitely a different creature than 1e.

...including the glint of metal or maybe coin reflecting off of your torchlight.
Hmm, was there something else in that pit? Should we throw the hobbit in to check it out...

Sorry guys for the slow pace - work is crazy lately. We'll update tomorrow, if you can think of how you want to deal with or split the items from the pit in the meantime.

Hi all, will be traveling tomorrow through Friday, so posting will be sporadic. Should be back to normal by the weekend.
