Re: Luck use and mighty deeds

Darn! I'm fresh out of pans! Would a cupcake work as well?? No thanks - I am trying to cut down and shed a few pounds before Christmas. :wink: In what situation do you ever roll the deed die on it's own? It is always part of an attack roll and is integral to the attack roll. :wink: But lots of roll...

Re: What to read next?

I might suggest that you take the idea of appendix N in a more general sense. Just read something that interests you, and don't look at the list in the old DM's guide as though it's a required reading assignment in a college course. Read for the enjoyment of reading, and I think you will find more i...

Re: Luck use and mighty deeds

I simply disagree. There is an attack roll , of which the deed die is a part. There is no "Deed roll", per se. I would allow anyone to modify the attack roll with Luck all they like, but that doesn't change the probabilities of the deed die. I see allowing Luck to tweak a Deed as a houserule. And t...

Re: Four fixes for DCC

jozzxyqk, I see characters die quite regularly in my gaming sessions. I don't have a huge sample set - we've played about 12 or 15 times, but there have been at least 10 or 12 post-funnel deaths with a party of 6 adventurers. A couple of characters have also decided to retire due to the reduction in...

Re: Four fixes for DCC

Hi Johann. I think you're handling your areas of concern rather well, but I have a few thoughts I figured I'd throw out there for your consideration. 1. The balance is spotty in some places (Elves vs Wizards) As mentioned by others, the iron vulnerability could be a bit of a liability, though if you...

Wow, that's quite extensive, and a good find. There may be a few sources I would question as the "Primary" source. For instance, Conan is based on historical european "barbarians", so I wouldn't really say he is the primary source of the barbarian class (although he is clearly a good example of it)....

Re: Starting Cleric spells

Re: Varying the types of treasures, beyond just gold

Here's some ideas for you, hopefully you find some of them useful: Consider making some of the magic items "sleeper" items. By that I mean that when the characters get it, they don't know how to use the magic yet, and will need to go on more adventures to figure out how, or to wake up some latent po...

Secret Doors and Surprise

I'm just curious how folks handle these two items in their games. 1. Secret doors: Do you use the d20 system with a DC to beat to find them? Do you give Thieves a bonus to finding them? 2. Surprise: For many years I have not used a random roll for this, relying instead on my judgement of how much no...

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

Is a club just a stick? Or is it a weapon that won't fail at the exact wrong moment in battle? To wit, I never see baseball players use any old branch when they are at the plate. But then again, I'm not really watching baseball, so maybe they do... Essentially. You wouldn't want to just pick up any...

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

So given that 100 cp = 10 sp = 1 gp... And let's say an average of 2 coppers a week, that adds up to around 1gp a year! If so then there goes the prices. 8 years to buy a mule? It takes 3 years to buy your own club? 5 years to buy 20 arrows? How could a bow hunter survive? Using barter should not c...

Re: Mixed Party Alignment

I never liked the idea that alignments are straight-jackets with no room for variation.

I think they sho...

Just keep my comments in the right context, guys.

And these are just a couple of suggestions, there's obviously several other things you ...

Re: Ok, Iv'e got my Game up and running...

Sounds great!

I really like the setting and they way your world sort of fades into rumors, so to speak, as you get to the edges of people's knowledge. Also like how you've discarded the things you don't like replacing them with better storylines and made it all your own.

Nicely done!

Two Weapon Fighting

So am I interpretting things correctly on this? If I am using two weapons, I get two attacks per Action Die, so when I get a second AD, I would get 4 attacks? If so, would you allow a character to take two attacks with their first AD and a single attack with the second one?

Thanks for the clarifications. So the rules as written result in a the maximum effect... The case in question was a final big boss battle at the end of the dungeon.

Re: Question about Automatic Critical via Spellburn

I have the spellcaster roll the die to see if a 1 comes up, but ignore any other roll and use a 20. If a 1 comes up the spell fails and the spellcaster suffers a fumble. Otherwise the spell is cast at it's best possible effect for that caster (based on 20 + all normal modifiers + 2x CL). If you add ...
