Re: 2012: Transylvanian Adventures & The Transylvanian Grimo

Thanks for those tips, I have no idea what the Ruin rules are, I just got the adventure with a streamlined version of the rules, so I suppose the Ruin rule should be detailed in the TA rulebook. We had a very funny session that ended in a total killed party, once the had the girl they bypassed some ...

Re: DCChammer

I guess the other question is why do you want to use DCC? Well, I played a lot WFRPG(1st ed) many many years ago, and a couple of years ago grasped by nostalgia we went back to it and realized the main rulesystem is a bit clunky for nowaday standards. So, to pick de DCC mechanics and plug them into...

Re: magic item identification? What's Your take?

I stick to this line ""Further, the cleric receives a very precise understanding of the magic’s strength and nature: he knows an item is a +2 sword or that a door is guarded by a level 3 ward portal spell." "understanding the magic's strength" don't means "perfect knowledge on how to use it's magic"...

There are LOTS of miniature manufacturers out there, many of them are small one-man operations run at home and releasing peculiar models which big manufacturers don't want to release. Of course they maybe don't release the exact model you need, but some could be really close to your needs. Tell us w...

Re: The Crawling Under A Broken Moon DCC fanzine

First thing to came to me is "A boy and his dog" by Harlan Ellison, to be more precise, the graphic novel by Richard Corben (Vic & Blood).
There also a film version, I heard nice comments about but never saw it, they say its a weird 70's sci-fi, in the positive sense.
