Re: Any point in spell level?

I could see adding a house rule about “chance to learn spell” like AD&D had. Maybe have a set DC, which is modified by caster level (down) and spell level (up). Then have the caster roll when they discover a new spell. Failure means the spell is beyond their comprehension. They could try again after...

Re: Errata

Pg 84: Delayed Reaction: sometimes the penalties refer to "combat initiative rolls" and sometimes just "initiative rolls." I assume these are the same thing, but should probably be labeled consistently.

I am considering a home brew campaign like Shadowrun once the MCC rules come out.

Re: Curious about the DCC RPG crowd...

Mentzer Red box...1984, followed by many years of 1st and 2nd edition AD&D. Gave it up when I went to college in 1992. Picked it back up about 6-7 years ago after listening to the first few episodes of the Roll for Initiative podcast. Haven't looked back!

Re: Introductions Thread - Join the Band!

Just a quick hello. I started with 1E back in '80 and played on and off for about 10 years. Got disgusted with the move to 2E and took a few decades off. Got back into playing about 2 years ago, running C&C with my kids and am having a great time with it. I've heard good things about DCC as well an...

Re: 20 point spell burn

Example 4 (how I understand that some of you are dealing with this rule in question): Spellburn 20 points. You don't bother to roll a spell check, and just assume it is a 20. So you get your 20 points of spellburn, plus CL, plus INT bonus, plus CL again (for having a natural 20). Final result: 23 Y...

Re: 20 point spell burn

Ok, am I crazy? I have read the rule three times and I don't see where you guys are getting that you don't make a roll. It says if you spend 20 points in spellburn you treat your very next spell check as a natural 20. You treat it like a 20, not you assume it is a 20 and don't bother to roll it. And...

Re: DCC Halfling only class that's worse than Basic D&D sour

I guess, I see the ability to share luck at 2x the rate, and recover it more quickly as balancing out any other factors vs. the Warrior/Dwarf. Plus, they are a totally different character to play, and bring other things to the party. Their ability to sneak silently is also a big plus when used crea...

Re: 20 point spell burn

I just went back and re-read the rule. It says that "a wizard who sacrifices a full 20 points of ability scores in one fell swoop automatically treats his next spell check as a roll of natural 20." (page 107) And the rule for a spell check of natural 20 states "A spell check result of a natural 20 i...

I have been running a campaign for a while now...and most characters are up to level 3. It seems to work fine for campaign play. If anything, I think it is better because of patron taint, deity disapproval, etc. which often lead to side quests for the party. I have never had a problem stringing the ...
