How many boulders should giants hold/have available?

So running saga of the giants still (we've done the hill giants but only just started the stone giants due to some sidetracking and a few month break due to exams and people going on holiday) and obviously the more powerful giant's ability to throw rocks is a very strong and devastating attack. Of c...

Re: Is the Vampire's CHARM ability the same as CHARM PERSON?

Kinda related question but can vampires be in the middle of a duel and gaze at their opponent or do they have to stand still at the top of a staircase laughing evilly and their bulbous eyeballs well bulb?

Growth of animals on PCs?

Can growth of animals be cast on PCs and if so how is their damage modified? Just flat doubled, double all physical damage, double only the damage rolled on dice. I only ask this because the combination of growth of animals, haste and gauntlets of orge power proved shockingly effective enough for a ...

Re: Is basic fantasy really for me?

Knock is mostly for getting rid of wizard locks and also you can brute force thru a door. A cleric can also use their find traps spell to find traps but only the thief can actually disable traps.

Very lucky if that's the case although it was great when I showed my dad my AD&D monster manual and he said he remembered it from uni in the 80s. He only played once but I assume he knew a...
