Tomorrow will be the third C&C game. I fear I'm already beginning to fall victim to system drift. For all the things C&C does right, I really feel like the pace of character advancement is fairly glacial compared to both 3.x/Pathfinder and 4e. I really don't remember whether early editions of D&D were like this, but it definitely bugs me. Worse, I'm not sure that just giving the PCs more XP and advancing them will necessarily fix the problem. I find I like a bit more of a tactical feel to my games (not surprising coming from my Champions background, I suppose), and C&C doesn't do much to scratch that itch.
But, by the same token, it seems like my players are having a good time. And it's not like I'm having a bad time, just that there are things I feel are lacking a bit. And changing up systems on a group of new players is hardly Cricket. All of which means I think I should just suck it up and keep rolling with C&C. Though I may dole out more XP to keep things interesting.
