Re: Guidelines for monster creation

When it comes to monsters, DCC has a Savage World feel. In Savage Worlds the GM is encouraged to make the monster he feels like making by giving it whatever stats feel appropriate. The idea of "balance" shouldn't come between you and the horrible creation you envision.

Re: DCC: Warhammer

Warhammer Fantasy and DCC are a good match. I'll share my personal take on a DCChammer campaign. I'd run this Warhammer + DCC game as a "re-imagining" more than a conversion. I'd take some stuff I really like about the Warhammer world and I'd leave out the things that can get in the way from time to...

Re: DCC and AD&D

In all instances were AD&D & DCC diverge in style (magic, epic warriors, knave with a sword vs. hero, monsters you've never even heard tales about trying to eat your face, etc.) I am going full-bore DCC... all AD&D gets to pitch in is the adventure seed and a few cameo appearances (beholders, Lolth...

DCC and AD&D

Hello everybody, There are two distinct takes on the DCC game running through my head right now. On the one hand, there's the Appendix N take. You know what I mean by that: shaping my games after pre-d&d swords and sorcery and new wave fantasy. On the other hand, I see DCC as a great way to re-imagi...

Re: Free RPG Day

My local game store just announced that they'll be hosting a Free RPG Day event as well. ( Well, maybe they announced it a while back, and I just found out today.) I'll see if it's not too late for me to run a DCC demo.

Re: Burning Luck

Say I have Luck 14 (+1), and I’m not a thief/Halfling. I burn 4 points, so my Luck is now 10 (+0) Because Luck is used for listen checks, does this now mean I can’t hear as well as I once could? I have a question of my own. It says in PG 19 that the LUCK modifier doesn't change over time. Does this...

Re: How crunchy/detailed is it?

I think DCC RPG is deceiving. It's a large book with lots of charts, but the actual mechanics of it are very straight forward. There are some handy reference sheets which compile all of the crit tables, which means the only reason you'll need to open your book will be to level and to look up spell ...

Absolutely brilliant Crow! Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, and Rat God? Your host of Gods just drips of appendix N!

I also really like the word Shanthopal. Does it have some sort of meaning?

Re: Pitching DCC to potential players.

You could use the backcover blurb as a start. You could describe the game as the Heavy Metal offspring of Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, born twisted and mutated, cackling with insane glee while it chants a litany to Howard, Leiber, Lovecraft, and Moorcock. You could state some ...

Pitching DCC to potential players.

Hello everybody! I'm currently trying to recruit local gamers for my Dungeon Crawl Classics campaign. Even though I'm totally enamored with the game, I'm kind of having a hard time coming up with a compelling pitch that can get people to try DCC. I mean, I could just list everything that's cool abou...

Re: Theosophy and Appendix N

I'm wondering if any of you have noticed connections between the many tropes of Appendix N pseudo-history and the teachings of Theosophy. You can, in my opinion, clearly see such analogues in Howard's Hyperborea: the fall of Atlantis, various relict races, etc. I'm just curious if anyone else has n...
