Re: Roll under vs. DC

Brain fart; I was calculating it as roll under on 3d6 not on a d20 (and it was equal or under). I'll make another graph later, the d20version will have more of a straight line.

Roll under vs. DC

So I was wondering which was "harder" and it occurred to me that roll under is very tightly tied to the ability score while DC is only somewhat influenced by it. Which only made me more interested in the difference, so I gave in and made a rough graph. If you have a hard time with the labels the lef...

GnomeBoy, did this adventure get published, or do we still have that to look forward to?

Are tournament level 0s good for home use w/ few players?

For various reasons I'm looking at running DCC RPG with a small number of players (at least at first - I expect I can get more if I can convince the initial group). I have not run DCC RPG before (but I loved the old 3.0/3.5 DCC adventures), and my players haven't played DCC RPG before. So I'm lookin...

Re: Kid Heroes

I'm not sure how much "historical accuracy" matters in your campaign (this isn't a knock, some people enjoy it, some are bored by it) but childhood to the extent that it existed use to end WAY sooner. Depending on what sources you use and how you define adult (and the social class the child was born...

The party was foolish enough to let the kobold lead them into the gardens...and even to let him into the garden first (unarmed).

Ah, good idea. So if he gets shackled try leading party to the elite guard. If he isn't tied bring them to the brambles where he can escape and join the hit n' run group there.

That could work.

And it wouldn't leave me inventing a derro cave complex.

DCC#2 captured kobold motivation? (spoilers)

The party I'm running through DCC#2 has captured a kobold. Two actually. On the 1st level they captured one who after a bit of torture came up with the plan of leading the party to the chest with the dolls and trying to flee during the combat. (it actually worked out even better then that since one ...

Yes, once you paste it is text, you just have to delete half of each "line", and remove the extra newlines. Takes maybe 2 minutes to fix up a single description. If I were running an IRC game I would take half an hour and copy & paste all the "read aloud" text before the first sesison. And then adju...

FYI cut & pasted can be hard. It is two collum text and it copies both of them when you only want one (I.e. one line of descripton one line of tactics or something mixed).
