Re: Character Sheets for Alternate Classes

For what it's worth, Nowhere City Nights has custom character sheets (really just modified Warrior, Thief, Wizard). If you're interested, send me a PM!

Re: Question: Thieves, Luck & Death

It's rather amusing to re-read these posts today. The answer (to myself, 7 years ago, from myself of 2020) is don't allow people to burn luck in this fashion. DIE, Player Charcter, DIE!!

Re: Muster: a friendly primer to old school D&D

I thought 80 PCs over 8 years is kind of light. I mean, if you are running an 8 year campaign (much respect!) then of course you probably have mostly high level PCs who don't die much. But if you do 4-5 funnels, that right there would be 10-15 deaths apiece...60ish? Sounds like one year of con games...

Re: The A-B-C's of Determining Your Shaman's Programs (Superseded by New Post)

Re: #1, I think I mentioned really briefly around here but maybe not... one of the approaches that is explicitly mentioned in the book IIRC is to bond to more than one patron. As long as you stay on the same or adjacent axes (e.g, Mainframe of Order) so your patrons don't constantly conflict, there'...

Re: The A-B-C's of Determining Your Shaman's Programs (Superseded by New Post)

Hi Melfast, I am not too keen on the first rule as I think the Patron should demand some service for a restored program. The wetware comes from the Patron. I mean, unless you reimagine the Shaman as a wetware-casting MCC Wizard a la Pozenal, which is fine with me, but not per the way it's designed i...

Hey gang, cool discussion and cool breakdown, I think most of the A-B-Cs looks right to me. Looking at the questions: 1) Based on the quote from p. 140, I have applied the Patron AI Bond result to determine the frequency of how often the Shaman can use their programs. I'm not sure that is right. Sho...

Re: MCC 2nd Edition Core Book Errata and Rules Omissions/Suggestions for a 3rd Printing of the MCC Core Book

Hey Maceo, all of the above makes sense to me. I think there has not been that much online and fan support which is unfortunate. In fact, I feel like there's almost more 3rd party product than there is active play, but then again, I only know from the cons I go to, probably not the complete picture ...

Re: MCC 2nd Edition Core Book Errata and Rules Omissions/Suggestions for a 3rd Printing of the MCC Core Book

Great discussion guys. Question on perception of the Shaman. I agree people don't understand the class and there is confusion. I think the source of the confusion is that people think it's going to be like a DCC Wizard, but it's very different. It's as if the DCC Wizard/Elf class had ONLY patron spe...

Shorter adventures (Less than 4 hours)

What DCC adventures can be run in 2-3 hours for a convention slot? It's been many years since I ran Portal Under the Stars, I think that's one.

What about others? I'm happy to consider 3PP stuff as well as Goodman Games published.

Re: Secret door base detection rules?

Depending on the situation, the Judge and the group, a Luck check can be appropriate too. You could apply the Elf mod as a minus for a Luck check if desired.

Softcover printing for retailer

I am running some DCC at my FLGS and my buddy and retailer owner asked me if I could see about getting some softcover Fourth printing "bridge copies" into the store to sell. I am a fourth printing backer and he is not. Is this weird/ unethical /frowned upon, grinned upon, etc?
