Re: Judge wannabe

Hi. I'm looking to start judging my first game and after some online research picked DCC as my system of choice. Good choice! Welcome aboard! The core book, whilst fantastic, has left me with some questions. Namely as to the treasure tables, mechanics for encumbrance and what you should be showing ...

Re: The Least You Need to Know? or: quick-start for judges

Raven_Crowking, thanks so much. You're welcome! 1. Is there one thing you wish you'd known, or wish you'd done differently, when you were starting? Either judging for DCC or just DMing. Let the game go where it will. If one encounter seems easier than you expected, another will be harder. Let the p...

Re: The Least You Need to Know? or: quick-start for judges

The least you need to know? How the major systems of the game work (combat, skills, spell checks). How Luck works. How the Dice Chain works. The basic job: Provide a context that allows the players to make interesting choices, determine the consequences of those choices, and the end result becomes p...

Re: Rounds vs turns and timekeeping

but in combat, ho rounds vs turn work. if i cast a spen and it lasts for 03 rounds, vs i cast a spall and it lasts for 03 turns? Combat always "rounds up" to at least 1 turn. If you cast a spell lasting 3 rounds, it lasts for 3 rounds during combat. So 30 seconds. If you cast a spell lasting 3 turn...

Thanks man, this is a huge help, I needed something for a small group 2-3 players / 8-12 level-0 characters. I'm looking into Attack of the Frawgs now!
For a small group, Attack of the Frawgs is a good bet.

Re: Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad #4-6: Abandoned Kickstarter?

Personally, I am very happy with the first three issues of Metal Gods, and I certainly expect to be happy with the next three.

It is not unreasonable to get a bit antsy under the circumstances, but I am not personally concerned. I expect that the Metal Gods will appear once more.

Re: Why are warriors so overpowered?

Overpowered in relation to the other players. My 2nd level player is a walking tank compared to them, with the potential of +6 hit and damage and 2nd level, while the thief and the wizard are very weak in comparison. As a result, all the combat falls on his shoulders. This may seem the right thing ...

Re: Ability checks and difficulty levels

I am happy to announce the DC ahead of time. Most of the time, I use the standard DC 5/10/15/20 framework, with occupations/classes roll 1d10 if they don't fit the type of action the check is calling for. Sometimes I will bump that up the dice chain, and if a character shows a particular talent for ...

Re: That dice chain

Another vote for the dice chain. The utility of this mechanic cannot be underestimated. The more you use it, the easier it becomes, and also the more powerful a tool. PCs starving in the wilderness? Use the dice chain on their rolls, and suddenly they care about food! Freezing to death? Once the dic...

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

In the scheme of the world. Why would anyone worship a god? they get nothing out of it. Clerics get their class powers, duh. but spreading the faith... why would anyone worship. In many cases, for the same reason people do IRL....a feeling of connection to something larger, hopes for the afterlife,...

Re: DCC Halfling only class that's worse than Basic D&D source

By RAW, a Halfling fighting with two weapons automatically hits and crits on a 16. Armor Class be damned! But what about an unnatural 16? For example, my halfling with +2 STR rolls a 14, and gets +2, for a total of 16. I call that a crit if it hits, but not an auto-hit. That's how I got such a high...

Does the Lankhmar product by Goodman Games provide that?

Re: Lotus Stare

(1) Yes.

(2) It depends on the judge, but I would say that if it can see, has eyes, and is not immune to mind-affecting, it can be affected. That last might disqualify a vampire, if it gains that immunity as an un-dead creature.
