Re: Switching my group to DCC

First off, welcome to DCC! I was thinking the People of the Pit, but think the plot might be a little too similar to Doom to do them back to back. I was thinking the same thing because the summaries of the adventures are so similar, but after reading Meadhelm's Road Crew report, Pariahs Pitted Again...

Re: Dying Earth

There was an interesting discussion about it during the " Bride of Cyclops Con - What's New With Goodman Games " starting at 1:19:30. Joseph talked about finishing the editing in January 2021. My guess is a Kickstarter in Spring or early Summer 2021... Anybody else have something more prec...

Re: Purple Planet Reboot

We learned at Bride of Cyclops Con that they're working on a Hardcover reprint. Late 2021 or early 2022. More info in the "Bride of Cyclops Con - AMA with Joseph Goodman" video on YouTube starting at 44:35.

Side note, why am I having so much trouble embedding a video! :oops:

Re: Need help with my campaign!

They've done the great Sailors of the Starless Sea at an earlier time, and I plan to do Doom when they get to the Land of the Eight Cities. I wonder how other people link together DCC adventures, or does everyone play one offs? Honestly, I like it that the DCC modules can take about 3 to 5 sessions...

Re: Throwing a ball of force (Force Manipulation spell)

I actually rule it the other way, that you have to throw it with an attack roll. Because you can hurl it, but you don't have to hurl it, you could do something else with it (like, use it to stop a door from completely closing or something). If you could somehow "telekinetically" make it f...

Re: Throwing a ball of force (Force Manipulation spell)

I would say it depends how you interpret the spell: 1 - It's a ball and you have to throw it "manually" so you have to do a additional missile check (Agility). 2 - It's a ball of force that the wizard created and has full control. Therefore, it will hit whatever (within reason) he wants it...

Re: Need help with my campaign!

There's Doom of the Savage Kings that is fairly "normal". The hound of Hirot isn't over the top and there's a lot of role-play invoolved. I would recommend that. Maybe have the innkeeper write to somebody in Lankhmar that they know and ask for help with the whole situation in Hirot. Sailor...

Re: DCC Summoner - Yet Another Character Generator

Wow! That is really cool! I love the 8-bit DOS/Basic look. I think you should ask the "To hit" modifier next to the weapon as well as the damage and modifier. That's always useful. I'm pretty sure the Core-Rule Book character generation is the same as the Quick Start Rules so there shouldn...

Re: Divine Magic used by Wizards

Per the rulebook: Wizards and clerics tap into different kinds of magic. Wizards specialize in the better-known fields of black magic, elemental magic, and enchantment. Clerics receive the direct assistance of their gods in a style of magic called idol magic, which may or may not be similar to the p...

Re: Color Spray spell keeps winning battles

Happened again. Charged into a guard post in DCC Lankhmar where there were 6 ghouls. Cast color spray - 4 of them instantly unconscious, pretty much end of the battle. I hate that damn spell, and the rule that you roll to save using the caster's roll as the DC is ridiculous, because it makes the sa...

Re: Ghouls easier to hit?

Where do you get your +2 from? The only place I see where it can come from is in the location below of the stat block (+3 in this example). If that is indeed what you mean, it's the attack modifier the ghoul has. So you roll your D20, add 2 (the +2) and you have to hit higher than the PCs AC. Beetle...

Re: That dice chain

The practical difference however is fairly negligible, which is why I tend to just go with the Dice Chain for situational things.

Re: The Doomed Turnip Kings Turn Up for the Doom of the Savage Kings (Session 1, 10/13/2020) (Road Crew game 8)

I love following your adventures. So if I understand correctly, your players went through Tower of the Black Pearl as a funnel and are now playing Doom of the Savage Kings as 1st level characters. I'm curious about some things about the Meta Game. Was it obvious for each player what class each villa...

Thanks for sharing!

I always had the impression Doom of the Savage Kings and People of the Pit were twin adventures since their summaries both start with the sacrificing of villagers to appease the beast. Now I see they're completely different. Another adventure that I have to add to my list!
