    There are two off the top of my head. I'm not to the statblock phase of editing the book yet. But yeah, both are the DR 1/2 which can't be done in FG unless/until damage types are implemented first.

    Hope this didn't post twice, my internet is being weird. If it did I'll erase one...

    While a creature may not have inherent DR remember many creatures cast spells and such that can carry DR traits, resist "x", protection from "x" etc...
    On the players side they also have use of spells and can gain items that give them resistances to these things. Potion of fire resistance, ring of fire resistance, Protection from poison.

    Also creatures might be vulnerable to various attack forms which should be addressed along side resistances/immunities. Traits like Incorporeal which require magic weapons to harm them would fall into this category as well. It's more than just simply searching for "resistance" or "Immune" within the M&T book.

    The fact is there are more than enough instances to warrant incorporating resistances into the rule set.

    Below are just the monsters that I've found in the M&T. Granted my pdf is the 2nd printing but I doubt it's changed much and it shows how many of them are subject to this rule set requirement in just one book. Not to mention creatures created by CK's, modules, and additional books released by TLG. Not including this feature is a huge downside. It often requires CK's go back constantly and re adjust damage players rolled to accurately reflect what is going on. Needless to say this can get annoying fast. I also didn't read every bit of text so I probably missed some since it seems TLG liked to hide DR text in the combat section a lot (see skeletons).

    Not sure of the exact page, but there is a discussion in the CKG of armor etc... having damage resistance properties. It's been a while since I read the section but that's how I remember it.

    Frankinson... Good extensive list/summary.
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Mon/Fri - on hiatus)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)
    * 2e Greyhawk (Wednesday)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    I just reviewed the Damage Reduction section of the CKG. It replaces the entire AC mechanic. Basically, your AC becomes 10+DexMod+MiscMod. Then, if you're wearing an armor with an AC value of say 6, the first 6 HP of damage is soaked up by your armor, with the rest applying to you. Also, under this system, you keep track of the HP of your armor, and when it reaches 0, it becomes worthless. So, you get hit more often (essentially every hit becomes a "Touch" hit), but you take less damage until your armor becomes worthless. If I implement this, it will definitely be an option, because I don't see those rules being used frequently...

    The resistance mentioned by Frankison are already implemented (if they are stated correctly, they will automatically add "RESIST: whatever" or "VULN: whatever" as an effect in the combat tracker when the NPC is added) - however, most weapons are not coded to actually generate a damage type. So, that part is kinda half-done.

    Cross-posting from the other thread:

    C&C Ruleset

    • Added a new Aihrdian calendar module to the ruleset which includes every holiday listed in the Codex of Aihrde tome. NOTE: This does not overwrite the community calendar module available here in the forums!
    • Minor tweaks to a few of the string values.
