Character Sheet Variant

Is it possible for the powers that be to create a DCC border art character sheet version with the Lankhmar Patron Die section included? Since not all the classes are in the rules as written Lankhmar this would allow people to use non standard characters in their games, or to port the Agent Patron ru...

Re: Editable copy of the rules

I used the Good Reader App. It allows you to edit PDFs a bit. I lined through and made comments on the PDF and included text blocks.

Re: Domains & Strongholds

No, not to my knowledge. The One Ring has an easy way to do this, Pendragon a more complex one.

Holdings? Those are things that belong to others that are pillaged and looted by the PCs. Holdings are just your savings accounts in someone else's name.

Re: "Fixing" DCC RPG

Step one. Get rid of bigbad, double door, final fantasy boss music style of adventure prep.

Step Two. Play the game.

Step three. Make the players believe accepting the dice falling as they may is always anbetter alternative than rules manipulation, unless in the utmost need.

Re: What does Google have that these boards doesn't?

I use both, but the forum end has seriously dropped off. I think there is more of an impression, true or not, that the G+ is more open and liberal with topics and content as long as it has to do with the game. Perhaps not being directly linked to the companies web page is part of that. Also I have f...

Re: Bringing back roll-under attribute checks?

I like using the TN method because then I can grant extra bonuses for collaborative efforts. Sometimes I have the assistants roll a die to see how much they are actually helping and sometimes I just add a couple or subtract a couple from the main participants TN roll.

Re: Weird Fantasy Dwarves, Elves, and Haflings

Take a look at the Swordsmen and Sorcerors of Hyperborea for dwarves, and the Liberation of the Demon Slayer for elves. Both works pain those demi-humans in a nonTolkien light and more of a darker side of mythology.

Re: NPC Wizards and Corruption

I think the rates would be how often you think they cast spells. Murdehobo PCs are like lawn darts from space, but others, though they study magic may not have the need to cast spells that very often.

Re: Elves Live So Very Long, And Yet...

I was reading something, dont recall now where though, that there was a certain amount of racial memory osmosis that occured. The jist of it was that elves live so long that they actually forget things, which is why stories are so important to their culture as its a way for them to remember. The oth...

Tales of the Fallen Empire: other questions

So, I have some other questions, since I have no idea where to place them officially I am putting them here.

Sentinel Class: the class has a Sense Motive Ability, but its not described anywhere. What does this do?

Barbarian: has a ferocity die that goes up to d16, but the results only go up to 12.

Re: Tales of the Fallen Empire: Lore Question

OK so I reread this section again. The part that threw me off was the mention of taking damage. That refers to the characters lore die increasing. The sections Using Sorcery and Facing Monsters is oddly placed and interupted the explantaion. Ok, so the mechanic is built around a Will save. (somethin...

Failed House Rules

So these boards are good for finding things to add to your game, but there isn't really a spot where people talk about what didn't work in their game. I think that sometimes that can be just as valuable. So I'll start this off. House Rule: Critical Hits do max damage. Reasoning: We all thought that ...

Tales of the Fallen Empire: Lore Question

How does this work? If i am reading this correctly when you fail a DC roll you get better at passing them in the future, but if you fail enough times you go crazy. Anyone want to take a stab at an example or an explanation? I dont think its that complex of an idea, but I am strugglng withnthe concep...

Re: Luck use and mighty deeds

Adding +1 to a roll of 19 would not make it a natural 20, it would only make it a total of 20. No critical hit or automatic hit, the total just becomes 20. I would still allow it for deed die because Luck can be used to modify a die roll and the deed die is a die roll. I do however think its a waste...

Re: Luck use and mighty deeds

" noted earlier, a character can permanently burn Luck to give a one-time bonus to a roll." Pg 95 So the answer is yes, but I would consider it a frivolous waste of Luck for the most part when you consider the overall purpose and mechanism of Luck. Part of that however is how often you give out Luck...
