    This thread is too old for me to officially jump in, but I'll just make an observation. When using examples from history, it is important to take the context into account. The American Civil War was...

    Seconded. With few exeptions, every time I've seen it done, it has unbalanced the setting.

    I just read the Thrallherd description, and I would not use it in BR, perhaps with the exeption of as...

    I'll adress your second issue.

    You should consider starting your characters at a lower level, say 1st or 2nd, for several reasons. Two good reasons for this are: BRCS is tooled as a low- to...

    Hmm. I don't see it that way. I see it more as if a system is like a pair of shoes. You need to break them in before they fit properly. I see the development of house-rules as being a part of the...

    As for 4e, I went on record here earlier saying I wouldn't touch it with my 10' pole, and was politely told to get out of that thread. Well, it was a thread calling for...

    I agree to all your points. The Aegis is not pleased. As in at all. Haelyn's Justice has been invoked here, and the "suspiciously surviving" paladin's investigation will...

    Aye. His support will be in the forms of information and gold. Mercenaries will be hired in the north, and neither Kalien or any of his lieutenants will be seen close to the scheme.
