Re: The People of the Pit

So is this game open? I can't schedule a regular game online so PBP would actually be an ideal format for my hectic schedule right now... Sure. You could create 4 peasants from the Village of Arwich to accompany these PCs if you so desired...... Are those just normal level-0 characters using the ch...

Re: DCC at Quakecon, Dallas July 17th...

So I ran Sailors On the Starless Sea at 10pm last Thursday at Quakecon. I had 4 players, so I let them make 2 level 1 characters each. I had every one of them download and install the Crawler's Companion , and they found it very cool and useful, especially as none of them had dice. This is my third ...

Re: Weapons do D6/2D6

I'm thinking of changing weapon damage to a simple D6 for one handed weapons and a 2D6 for two handed weapons. I'm just kinda tired of EVERYONE running around with either a longsword or a Great Axe. The change really wouldn't change the damage a whole heck of a lot but it might free people up to ch...

Yes, there is. As of yesterday, I've decided that I'm going to do Void Hunters independently rather than as a DCC supplement. There are a host of reasons for this, but the main ones are: 1. I've had problems selling supplements for full games in the past. Number one complaint: we want all the rules ...

Re: How do you pronounce Melnibone?

Well, if it helps, Finarvyn, Moorcock is also on record as saying there is no set pronunciation, its down to how the reader feels it should be pronounced. I guess he's advocating reader agency, in that respect.

Re: What DCC Needs Is.....

I have all the monster manuals I need in my original D&D stuff and a lot of the offshoots. Conversions aren't that tricky and, in fact I converted a few of my favorite Fiend Folio monsters into DCC for my adventure 'The Traveling Cave of Al-Hadim.' No, IMO what DCC needs is more and more adventures....

The good news, though, is it looks ...

One mustn't forget the open ended nature of Judgement in the game, as well.

In OD&D, as it should be with all RPGs, a clever wi...

Re: Good rule system for a Hobbit/LotR Campaign

I am looking for some advice on games systems (rpgs) best portray The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Dungeon Crawl Classics does not fit the bill. It is too weird, in a good way, and 'different' to use as a base for a Hobbit or LotR game. The only reason I started playing rpgs was on account of the ...

What this means is that you should award Luck based upon what you feel is a extraordinary advancement of your enjoyment running the game, wh...

Re: Weird Fantasy Dwarves, Elves, and Haflings

My Jabberwocky campaign setting uses the Elfquest type elf: sort of like wild west Indians with pointed ears, savage tempers and faerie magic. No dwarves in my campaign, but Gnomes. Halflings are exactly like the Nelwyn example.

And if the sword is highly intelligent, it might play dumb and let the character think he has the upper hand until it sees a good opportunity to change tactics and dominate the character or stab the character in the back (maybe even literally).
