Re: Something about Agility and attacking from behind bother

To me it seems to be a bit complicated for something that doesn't happen at every combat. A thief gets a bonus to backstab because they are sneaking up upon someone. They get this when the opponent is not aware of them. If they are aware they do not get the bonus. But he has to make a stealth check ...

Re: Conversions

I am not familiar with Iron Kingdoms Unleashed but I can give you a few items to consult. Crawl # 8 has firearm rules (if I am not mistaken they are the same rules used in CUABM though they may be expanded a bit.) High Caliber Hijinks cover some crit and fumble charts that you may find useful. Hones...

Re: Mutant Crawl Classics pre-order?

I think the other reason that kickstarters have become is it allows them to put out a lot of extra content that they would not be producing if it wasn't for the ks campaign. For example, let's look at just the chained coffin kickstarter: Original concept was the module itself. With the kickstarter s...

Re: Saving throws

I had the same issue pop up when I was leveling characters. For some reason I looked at the chart and thought sure they are cumulative. This was at the end of a six hour session. I sat down later and took a breather and went..wait, that's not right. Wasn't hard to correct but it is something that ap...

Re: Museum of Death for sale before kickstarters receive it?

Yeah it's pretty common for them to print stuff out for people to pick up at GenCon. I think sometimes they might sell a few or maybe give them away as prizes as well though I could be wrong about that. I hope I am not though. I backed the kickstarted and know that I will be getting my stuff so if t...

Re: The Vertical Halls - Now Available!

My print copy came in a couple of weeks ago and I sat down to read it last week. Can't wait to run this. One of the better dungeons I have read. Lots of coolness here.

Re: upcoming DCC adventures

Personally, I am looking forward to the MCC kickstarted later this year. I haven't picked up any of the new mods as I am hoping that they will be included as add-ons to help push the project the way they were with Chained and Purple Planet. Any word on if this will be the case or not?

Re: "Burn" for other classes than Wizards?

Yes a wizard can take over by burning stats and luck, etc. But two things to remember: 1) The wizard, after burning all of his stats, is going to be much weaker. And he is going to need protection after all of that. Now if this is a one-shot then it has no true consequences. Or if you tend to not do...

The benefit of not rolling stats until you use that stat is that you can get right into the game.

At anytime a score is rolled that the player does not lik...

Re: Sense & Sensibility & Wizards

Magic in DCC is supposed to be dangerous and mysterious. To get there you have to put aside some basic assumptions that you have picked up from other games. At least this has been my experience when I was introduced to the game. One of my first assumptions I had to put away was that a wizard, or cle...

Re: Tracking time and random encounters?

DCC doesn't seem to be as detailed about resource management as games like D&D/LL, but part of that –I assume– is deliberate to leave things up to individual GMs. The note about tracking encumbrance seems to follow this vein. A character who carries too much weight is slowed down. Use common sense....
