Re: How to handle player losing all their characters

Another thought about character death -- when I am playing at the table with newbie players I try to have a conversation with the DM first and tell him or her that if a character "needs" to die please make mine the first. I would model acceptable behavior (no tantrums, getting angry, etc.) so that t...

Remembering WFF

I was rummaging through some old boxes and happened to find my stack of WFF modules, so I had to sit down and reread some of that stuff. It's too bad that WFF wasn't promoted more as a "new" RPG system, because I think that those were some of the best d20 modules that I can recall from that era. The...

Re: How to handle player losing all their characters

Suggestions stated above are all excellent. I think that the key to a funnel is that you aren't supposed to be invested in any of your "zeroes" and if you run out a GM can look for any way to bring the player back into the action. Locals from the city, random folk wandering the dungeon or countrysid...

Re: Economics and keeping the PC's poor.

One thing that I've noticed about many of the "Appendix N" short story collections (Conan, Fafhrd & Mouser, Elric, Delvish, and so on) is that there is a common theme that adventurers gain absurd amounts of wealth by the end of one story yet are totally penniless by the start of the next.

Good point, but one cannot spew propaganda in all posts or one will be labelled as a SPAM guy and be ignored. Important to sneak a few BUY DCC RPG little things into a post that might not be noticed, yet will encourage folks to BUY DCC RPG do what you want. Right? :lol:

I wasn't sure where to put this, but I'm curious as to whether Tales from the Magician's Skull is taking story submissions? If so, anyone know the process?

Re: Weird dice.

I don't have any 3d printer options for you, but it's easy to play DCC RPG without the weird dice. d3 = roll d6, divide by 2 (1-2 is a one, 3-4 is a two, etc.) d4 = standard d5 = roll d10, divide by 2 d6 = standard d7 = roll d8, re-roll 8's d8 = standard d10 = standard d12 = standard d14 = start wit...

Yes, it's still a thing. I think that some game stores participate and others don't, so depending upon the stance of your local store you might or might not get much exposure to it.

Re: Abolish the Thief Class

It's an interesting thought, as OD&D (the original RPG) only had fighting man, cleric, and magic-user as its base three classes. The thief was added in months later in Supplement I Greyhawk. There are many old-time players who advocate that all classes should be able to do thief-stuff and that makin...

Goodman Games has been producing modules for a long time. Most trace back to the days of 3E/d20 Dungeons & Dragons, a few were written for 4E.
