Re: Level Cap

I am a casual participant in RPGs. I only get to game every 2-3 weeks (at best). I used to play more frequently as a teenager and 20-something, but now in my 30s I have less spare time. The 10-level cap is a HUGE plus for me in the DCCRPG. One of the things I always found dissatisfying about AD&D, D...

Re: Level Cap

Personally, I think that 10 levels is a feature of DCC RPG, something that sets this game apart from so many of the others. 10 levels is so old-school too. Please KEEP 10 levels for the core book!

That is nothing less than amazing. Very nicely done! :shock:
That's a lot more involved than anything I would have done. Well done.
Yes. Fantastic work!

Re: Dice: generating "Zocchi results" using "normal" polyhed

Buy a set of BLANK polyhedral dice (i.e. a set of blank d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20) then: For: d3 use the blank d6 and label it: 1,2,3,1,2,3 d5 use the blank d10 and label it: 1,2,3,4,5,1,2,3,4,5 d7 use the blank d8 and label it: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,R (R means re-roll the die) d14/d16 use the blank d20 and...

Re: Dice...

Of course, I meant to say use the 1d2 as a 'control die'. I prefer the d6 as a control die simply because it rolls well. I find that a d2 (coin flip) is awkward, but a d6 fits in my hand with the other dice and I can just toss it with the others. You control die works just like mine, otherwise. 8) ...

Re: Dice...

What would be the best way to simulate the D14? You mentioned threads talking about this, which forum are they in? d8 x d2 (re-rolling if you get an 8 on the d8) No. This method will mess up the mathematics. A d14 is "linear" so that each number has equal probability, but 2d8 is "bell" which means ...

Re: Dice...

No problem Treebore - just use the "normal" dice to simulate the funky ones. Roll a d8 and drop the 8 to simulate d7, etc. I often run con games for players who don't own Zocchi dice and we make it work. Give that a try and let me know what you think of the rules in actual play. :) What would be th...
