Re: Mighty Deeds for Monster

While I do not think monsters should have "mighty deeds" exactly like how a warrior does. I do think they can be cool by giving them special moves/attacks. My Canardian monsters have a special "duck-bill peck" attack that triggers a second follow up attack if they roll high enough because they "temp...

Re: Minor Birth Augurs for Luck 8-12

I can understand that a +0 bonus from your luck score can make the birth sign a little underwhelming, but that's just because most people in the world are unremarkable and untouched by the hands of fate, so to speak.

Re: Random encounters?

I guess if it's not really laid out as a specific suggestion in the adventure, you could do it any way you like. I keep a cummulative chance for random encounters each time I roll. So like.. first random encounter check, I roll d6 and on a 6 one happens, then on second check, I roll d6 and it happen...

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

I didn't say that, just that the god may be upset about giving healing to players without anything in return. You can still heal at like.. 1 HP a day with rest or something without using magic.

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

Well to start with if the Halfling already has 16+ DEX it’s not much of an improvement at all; no other skill has it's effect reduced in this way. If you're generating characters as the book suggests, then how often are you going to have a halfling with 16+ Agility? Not very often at all! I just ra...

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

If the person playing a Cleric doesn't refuse to heal people unless they start worshiping their god, then there is something wrong with that player.

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

There are two "events", each has a 1/16 chance to happen. 256 total combined outcomes, 15/256 for first attack to crit, 15/256 for the second attack to crit, 1/256 for both to crit. 11.7% for either the first or second attack to crit, 0.39% for both to crit.

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

I think, mechanically, it is a little more involved for a cleric to gain worshipers for their god and build up the congregation. Most of it should be done through your adventuring and role playing, as well as spending resources on building/enhancing a church, maybe charity work if your god is into i...

I've got OAR #1,2,&3 so far, its nice to have copies of the old original adventures mixed with an updated version. So, with OAR #3 it looks like you added a ribbon to the book? I like this. I notice that OAR#1 had a spine the same color as the cover, but #2 & #3 have red spines. Makes me wonder if O...

Re: Thief Action Dice

Some Judges, including some I have experienced personally, will not allow you to use backstab with another character acting as a distraction. Or say... don't let you "backstab" with a ranged weapon, even though it is technically allowed by the rules.

Re: Confused about the highest Patron Bond result

1. The way I read it, you can cast "Invoke Patron" at +2, up to four times a day. You also gain two patron spells. Instead of casting invoke patron, you may cast one of the patron spells. Each patron spell can be cast once a day. There is no bonus to cast the patron spell. So you decide to use one o...
