Re: My Stewpot of Chaos

Sounds like you have done a great job of weaving the background story together for these modules. It all fits together quite nicely. Thanks! ... The PCs started at 1st level, so no funnel. We have an elf, a nature cleric and a thief, and one more player might join the game. ... Next time try a funn...

Not yet but I'll probably pick it up. I really like what I've seen and heard about Lamentations of the Flame Princess products.

My Stewpot of Chaos

My daughter and her boyfriend wanted to play D&D and asked me to run something for them, so I took the opportunity to finally run a DCC campaign on the weekend of the game's 40th anniverary. I had a variety of setting elements and modules that I had planned to run "some day" and threw them all toget...

Re: Patrons supplement Kickstarter live!

I thought I'd chime in because I hadn't been following this issue and I was surprised to see this thread. I hadn't been following because I actually received a physical copy of the book here in New Jersey and I didn't realize that there were serious issues with the campaign. Unfortunately, I can't r...

Re: Spoilers:Sailors on the Starless Sea...anyone played it

We played our second session of Sailors yesterday, which ended in a TPK by the Chaos Leviathan. The party replenished their numbers from the captives and so were back up to 12. They never found the Tomb of the Fallen or the Forgotten Cache and refused to enter the Charnel Ruins. They also refused to...

Re: Classic Modules

I've been thinking. DCC aims for a certain vibe, borne out of the legendary N appendix. But the d&d most of us grew up with, basic and advanced 1st ed, didn't really have that vibe. I'm wondering if DCC rules/vibe will be too 'gonzo/weird' for those classic modules. What do you think? I'm still try...

Re: Those damned halflings

Check out the Slaine setting, originally published by Mongoose for D&D 3.5 and based on the comic of the same name by 2000AD. It's a very gritty take on a mythological Celtic/Norse setting, perhaps better described as Celt trappings applied to an S&S world. The setting pdfs, adventures and some grap...

Re: Spoilers:Sailors on the Starless Sea...anyone played it

Ran my first session of DCC yesterday for the family using Sailors. Out of 12 PCs, four were killed right off the bat by the corpse vines. They knew the front door was probably tough but they got suckered in piecemeal and then insisted on fighting them in melee. I gave them a break by letting them p...

One-shot advice?

I hope to run a one-shot for a gathering of old friends from our first D&D group back in the 70's. I really like the idea of giving them "rules sort of like we played back then, but wait until you see THIS." The rules aren't in my hands yet but they're on the way. Although I'd like to run it for the...
