Re: My setting's pantheon

I like it - I was finding a lack of lawful deity descriptions. I'm mashing up the law side with some of the Hyperborean chaotics from AS&SoH.

Re: The DCC RPG Economy. I think the prices are off.

I finally registered what was nagging at me... well, one of the things - why must a peasant be able to afford arrows? There's a reason that for millennia, peasants, shepherds, and even footsoldiers used slings. Pause a moment and think about what goes into making an arrow. You could spend an entire ...

Re: Crawl! New Class Challenge! Brainstorm (and class propos

Okay, my official list: [from bitflipr] Martial Artist. Based on the kung-fu crazy of the early 70s, this class mirrors the style of Chinese Wushu (but could be adapted to others such as Karate). Differing from a Warrior's raw attack prowess, the Martial Artist dodges often and times their attacks b...

Re: Crawl! New Class Challenge! Brainstorm (and class propos

I like the martial artist as posted by bitflipr, and also Barbarian. I don't necessarily think the MA should have the D&D 'open hand' damage - seriously, knife edge hand strike against a gorget? nah. Although was fun to play a 3.0 monk who leapt on a dragon and then KO'd it with Stunning Fist. While...

Re: elves and iron

Bronze. There's a reason it was used as the standard material for arms and armour for thousands of years; it was very effective. :) If your setting follows largely Earth-like development in terms of metallurgy, you could rule that some truly ancient magical items are made from bronze rather than ir...

Re: Patrons supplement Kickstarter live!

I just signed up, and got a good chuckle when I saw the home location of Daventry. It is one of the few places in the UK that I've been to (living in California), having attended a wedding in Badby. I'm pretty sure I stayed in a row house in Daventry on one of the multiple stag nights. I like Northa...

Re: 0 Level Funnel Ideas...

That could work - maybe the villages were raided by the entity that's putting on the games. Sets up the logical 1st level followup of a gladiator revolt. Might be a challenge though keeping track of an entire party named 'Spartacus'.

Re: Pitching DCC to potential players.

I've been thinking on this topic as well. Some of the 'flavor' is specific to the style of campaign you're running, but I had these words in mind for part of the pitch. Note that they may not be mine - I've been reading a lot of GG/DCC and 3rd Party promo materials, and for all I know someone wrote ...

This House Rule / Philosophy fits really well with the Harold Shea (Complete Compleat Enchanter) style of magic.

Re: Layered DCC Character Sheet

Looks great Alegur, even the inclusion of the luck burn section for everyone... it's a bit unneeded in my opinion since everyone can burn luck, but in every case other than Thief and Halfling it is permanent - so you don't need to track more than just the one score to track it correctly. Well, perm...

Re: Layered DCC Character Sheet

Very, very nice! I agree regarding Base/0/0lvl - Base always on would be nice, combine zero-level with zero-level-class which overlay Base. One thing that I think the player would be tracking rather than the Judge is Luck - I think the Base should have Luck / Changed Luck or Luck Burn for luck expen...

Re: 0 Level Funnel Ideas...

I had an idea the other night that might work well for its 'fun' aspect, and might be more appropriate for a party of younger kids. Also, it could be a funny twist for a group that's already played through a DCC funnel and is expecting widespread carnage. It's Medieval-landia, and you live in a farm...

Re: DCC RPG- having problems getting it to work for me/us.

What a wild and insightful thread! While it's unfortunate that it doesn't look like the compatibility is there for this particular group, I loved some of the observations that came from it. While the kid doesn't know that he "gets it" when he observes the risk involved with spellcasting, he really d...
