Re: Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad #4-6: Abandoned Kickstarter?

When you back a Kickstarter to are paying the maker to attempt to make a product. If you want more than this...do not ever back a kickstarter....wait till it comes out in stores and buy it then! They used to reward such a money gamble with extra rewards that made that risk more worth it. Now...it's ...

Re: How to handle player losing all their characters

My current go to thing to do if they lose all their characters is to laugh. It's then time to bring up the next batch of peons to get run over.

I tell players with warrior/dwarf characters that if they aren't declaring a mighty deed every round, they are missing out on what makes a warrior powerful.

Every. Round.

Re: Just curioius do people have campaigns that go past leve

This is an old thread but a topic I see repeated quite a bit when DCC is discussed. There’s an element of GWAR Slaughterama which seems to hinder play beyond 5th level. Personally I think DCC is the best thing to happen to RPGs since Gary Gygax but I’ll be honest in that the gonzo slaughterama ment...

Re: Just curioius do people have campaigns that go past leve

I have no idea how many have died in my game. We stopped counting long long ago. I would guess the number of pc deaths would be in the hundreds. I remember some weekends with 30-40 dead characters from funnels. My knuckle dragging players are infamously stupid though. No really. More than once have ...

I use normal monsters. Granted my normal monsters like the orc are created by wizards in a huge vat or are a more advanced version and have breeding pits as well as often will have mutations ect.. DCCRPG always remains a deadly game. Even at 10th level lower level monsters in numbers can take a pc d...

Re: Just curioius do people have campaigns that go past leve

We have had 2 players make it to 10th level. Several more that made it to the 8-9th mark. The vast majority that make it out of the low levels either die or retire by 5-7th level but we just have no house rule that enforces that or anything. People often just get protective of their characters and o...

Re: rare Demi-humans

The King of Elfland figure is a little different in my game. He is the Elven God-king of the third City-ship that slipped between worlds in the Wild. The Wild is another plane of existence where nature dominates to a much larger degree than on Earth. It appears to be endless and frankly illogical. F...

So far the three times Elfland has been seen/visited it looked different each time. Once it was a Giant Tree Fort that was one with the tree. Ugly deformed human servants/slaves went about a bizarre dizzying amount of pointless tasks that made more and more sense the longer you watched a location. O...

Re: Are DCC products still going to be on rpgnow/drivethrurp

This is a good question! You know I didn't even realize that was the case! I normally just look at rpgnow's DCCRPG for the newest things.

If their own site is going to be THE PLACE to find DCCRPG stuff I would like to know to.

It's a generally bad thing to bring religion or politics into a rpg endeavor. With politics you are bound to anger 50% of the board population with targeting either candidate.

Toat's Magoats
human warrior 3rd level
with a 7,5,4,5,6,7

Toat's is like a god of war on the battlefield somehow surviving against overwhelming odds even while seemingly seeking death at every turn. While other warriors with far better stats die by the dozens.

Re: Spell Cards

DCCRPG's spells are so much .........more than D&D's. It would be harder to do.

That said some quality old school artwork on one side and all the Spell chart information on the other side of a larger (double sized) card would be awesome!

Re: DCC + My first love Greyhawk

My advice is to take a small section of Greyhawk like Homlet and the area around it and really flush it out. You don't need to convert all the gods. Just convert one or two of them as most people in that area only worship those. Have the party start out just villagers and run them through a funnel. ...
