Re: Interested in “Into the Borderlands”

Hi! I haven't written anything in these forums since DCCrpg was still just a playtest! :D But Into the Borderlands called me back in! I've read on twitter/FB that postage to Europe is 50$. More than the actual book. Damn. We actually got a really sweet deal on the first DCCrpg preorder, I think we g...

Re: Anybody daring to swear he doesn't roll concealed? ;)

I always roll in the open.

I am actually thinking of having PCs roll Active Defense against the monster "Attack DC".
So maybe they can burn Luck on Defense rolls.

Re: Halfling Lucky Charms

I always assumed it was +2 but now I am not so sure. It does say that they double the bonus of a luck check which also implies that it's double when added to others as well. But it does say "gains a +2 to HIS roll" on p. 60. I think i will go the "hardcore" way, of allowing a 2:1 luck burn to his o...

Re: Actions : others activities

Another question on action : a character can use 1 action to declare a charge. In order to charge, he must move at least half his speed. This means that with a Charge action the character move and attack ? (or use a Move action and if in contact use an attack action but with +2 ?) I would say so. C...

Re: A few questions

Yeah, the mithril thing kind of throws me off as well. I ran into this issue with the beta when one of the 0 level PCs started with a chunk of mithril. How rare is it? I mean, if every armored elf has to be equipped in mithril, it can't be that rare. I don't like the mithril thing really. I'd like ...

Re: Dead Characters

It really depends on the DM. Some like to add 0 Lvl PCs. Others like to add PCs of at least 1st Level (so they're not utterly useless) Others allow a PC at the current party level, or at the same XP of the deceased one. --- I read some people have the player create four 0-lvl PCs, then randomly kill...

Re: Recovering the dead.

It's not specified. I guess it would depend on the DM : I would say 10 in normal circumstances , higher if the fallen PC was knocked out with a particularly vicious blow, such as a dragon bite or a critical hit ( in which case, a 15 would seem appropriate). Extreme circumstances of death might call ...

Re: Opposed check for surprise? Just initiative?

From my experience as a player and as a DM, rolling lots of checks usually plays against the PCs. If you're trying to sneak past 2 guards you have to roll twice. If your sneaking bonus is high enough, you can do it. But if instead of 2 guards, we have 10, you'd have to roll 10 times separately, know...

Re: Alignment as Political

I'd suggest to the OP to find a copy of AD&D Planescape Campaign Setting. It's all based on factions rather than alignments. I think my first DCC campaign will use that setting for the roleplaying opportunities it presents, and the ease with which you can jump from one environment to a totally diffe...

It will be good news to many that the Free RPG Day modules are included in the core rule book.

Re: How would you judge the following

Especially at 0-level, during the funnel, I like to turn a lot of the checks (around 60% of them) to Luck checks. As a peasant in a dungeon, Luck is really what makes the difference to me: and having lots of Luck checks, presents Luck Burning as a double edged weapon; it might save you now, but soon...

As for international shipping if you do want to order direct, it is your lucky day: go ahead and place an order with the existing $4 shipping charge. Long story short I would be happy to subsidize a bit of enthusiasm early on, and it's easier than dealing with some of Paypal's quirks. So: $4 intern...
