Re: New to the forums and DCCRPG

Make sure you grab the updated thief and cleric pdfs. It'll play fine without them, but they're more balanced now

Re: A few questions

You raise points that have come up many times. :) In fact there are a couple threads on these forums along the same lines. I still haven't come up with a great answer to the probability concerns (i.e., "1" happens too often on a d14 or "max result" happens too rarely on a d30). But it also hasn't "...

Re: A few questions

I've been wondering, is a crit on a d30 only a 30? Seems odd to punish a player reducing their chance to crit to a 3.3%, but 2 crit numbers increase you to 6.6%...

I've been tracking down terrible zombie themed rpgs to see how low the bar is set In terms of quality and playability. And apparently, it's really low

Re: Cleric Sacrifice???

Why not allow their god to consume the gold in a holy blaze? I was planning on ruling that the cleric must sacrifice 80% of current worldly possessions to negate one penalty point. That includes any weapons and the clothes on their back in the total value. other acceptable sacrifices include fresh k...

Re: Character Improvement Options

While I understand people's desire to play super powered murder machines, there are systems for that (4e). People keep forgetting the "you're no hero" bit. That being said, this game, unfortunately, won't be for everyone. I'm trying to get my 4e group interested, and those that gave played old editi...

Re: Playtest in Connecticut

Just so you're aware, the thief skills have changed to d20. I believe the reason was "it's overcomplicated old school for the sale of being overcomplicated and old school"or something to that effect. In all honesty, you're just rounding the check either up our down no more than 3%, honestly not a ma...

The one who wants a were-monk min-maxes, an tod is a 4e power gamer. I'm convincing him that the classes are interestin...

Re: Updated Cleric Class

That works, of you roll them randomly. Or make the cool gods brutal, like of you use Bahamut, and piss him off, you might eventually get blasted by him. Maybe Cthulu sends along a mind flayer and you suffer permanent Int loss if you piss him off. I'm thinking along the lines of my fav roguelike Neth...

I haven't had a chance to be on the player side of the table yet, but I'm playing in a labyrinth lord game (just joined it) where we rolled 6 sets of 3d6 stats (essentially 6 full characters), and funneled them ourselves, picking the ones we liked best for the c...

The person in question would be me :)
I've be interested on either a skype game or a game over on rpol
Would prefer rpol for scheduling reasons.
Also, I'd rather play than run, but I'll run if nobody else it's interested in doing so

Re: Will we see the next updated draft?

Well some things will be clarified here, just not into an updated pdf, like thief skills are going to d20.
Gonna be interesting without a final playtest though.
Understandable, though, why else would we buy the final?

Re: Class Conversions for DCC

I'm not trying to discourage you, but from what I've understood about dcc, it's that it's more limited in scope of player options. Limiting the player choices does a few things, 1) it prevents game breaking classes from appearing (4e paladins are murder machines that can heal, at least on my games)....
