Yeah, you're not doing Luck wrong -- they're just spelling out how it's going to work in the rarefied atmosphere of a tournament.

Re: My 2nd road crew game (Tower of the Black Pearl session 1)

Excellent.

I've run Pearl multiple times, and a couple times as a Funnel. In one of those runs, I think the gap in the stairs claimed more lives than any other thing!

Re: Color Spray spell keeps winning battles

I had a similar case with that exact spell, but in a one-off game where the player never rolled less than a 17 on the die on a spellcheck. In that case, it was obvious why they were trouncing every hostile situation that came up. So yeah, more detail about the game would help -- like if you're doing...

Now that the "Empire of the East" setting book is almost complete, I'm guessing the DE kickstarter will be coming up soon. Looking forward to this as I missed out on Lankhmar.

Re: SCARAB 2020

I've run funnels and leveled adventures at Cons, and it's all good.

In an online setting, I find funnels more difficult to run, but I know from Cyclops Con and other online Cons that plenty of people have had plenty of success with them.

Re: Is it OK to run 3rd party modules using DCC ruleset for roadcrew games?

Yep. You can even make up your own material to run for Road Crew games.

Just play DCC, MCC, XCrawl, etc. in an 'anybody can join in' situation, you're running a Road Crew game.

"Do they notice the hidden trapdoor, sack of coins, foe, etc.?" This depends largely on what they are telling you they are doing.

Re: Very basic question about Luck and modifiers

I know, for example, they do not track changes in modifiers for tournament play, to stop the game from bogging down. That makes sense, but doesn't mean that's the default across the board for all types of play.

When I played with Judge Brennan in Game Therapy on the DCC stream, the luck modifier did not change as the luck score did. Someone even asked about this in the chat.
Could that have been Brendan's judgement based on running in that context to keep things simple?
