Re: Another plea for dice...

There seems to quite a few threads coming up now clamouring for a DCC dice set, and I for one, would absolutely snap a set up if it came out. I have some very nice dice sets from Q-Workshop for Earthdawn, Deadlands and Pathfinder, along with some great looking elven, runic, dragon, steampunk dice an...

Re: Any books on dungeon puzzles, riddles & traps

A big +1 for The Dungeon Alphabet.
I raid my old AD&D Dungeon Builder's Guidebook for a long list of random traps.
Frog God's Tome of Adventure Design (hah! :) )is a great resource to dip into too.

Re: Solo Adventures?

I would definitely pick up solo modules if GG released some. I have been thinking of using some old BSOLO/XSOLO TSR modules like Lathan's Gold, Thunderdelve Mountain or Ghost of Lion Castle for DCC. Not sure how much work it would be to convert it over, maybe not a lot. I am tempted just to dive rig...

Re: What is DCC?

I think that perhaps the "ultimate" DCC fiction would be Michael Moorcock's "Young Kingdom" stories with Elric, who goes on adventures and sometimes fights but sometimes calls in favors from patrons who can fight for him. And Elric lives in a dark setting where the good guy doesn't always walk away...

Maybe that will make Frozen In Time the first fantasy rpg module to have a beserk robot on it's cover then? :) Great artwork, really eye-catching. Looks like Forbidden Planet's/Will Robinson's robot having a shit-fit!

Re: No Demi-humans?

Or classic pulp sword & sorcery fiction like REH's. I have run DCC without any demi-humans in a Hyboria-like setting and I did not miss elves, dwarves etc at all. All very Conan-esque, with bits included from SW Beasts & Barbarians. When I first read DCC, I instinctively disliked the dwarf character...

Fear & Loathing in DCC

In your campaign worlds, are the mutations suffered by the users, viewed as signs of evil by the general populace and the victims seen as abominations to be destroyed? Or are corruption effects seen ...
