Re: Running DCC with One player and One GM

I ran five 5e PCs in a game that we had to do online via Google Hangouts last month and I'm still waiting to get another hack at that game. I am sure that playing a funnel style DCC game always having 4 PCs is totally possible! Of course, I used an online semi-random character generator to make thos...

Welcome Aaron! Best of luck with your group! I cannot envy you in South Carolina during the summer, I remember many hot, sweltering summer days when I was stationed in Charleston! Lovely city though, I hope that hasn't changed about it!

Re: Judge or something else

I like the term Judge, "because you adjudicate how things should be done." as it seems to settle my mind in middle ground between the megalomaniacal aspersions that Dungeon Master connotates with jaded players, and the perception of same of abject boredom by simply refereeing the game in a truly gam...

Re: Paranoia RPG with DCC rules?

Honestly, I never thought of this combo, but its a natural progression (regression?) of setting and system. I haven't had DCC long enough to convince my players to try it, although the 0 level funnel is a good example of what to incorporate into a DCC Paranoia game. Multiple 0 level PCs = Alpha Comp...

Offering to tithe something to the cleric's church in return for healing is usually enough to placate the cleric's sense of piety.

Re: How to handle player losing all their characters

Another thought about character death -- when I am playing at the table with newbie players I try to have a conversation with the DM first and tell him or her that if a character "needs" to die please make mine the first. I would model acceptable behavior (no tantrums, getting angry, etc.) so that ...

Re: Spell power progression scale

Are those all 5e terms? They are present in 5e, but I don't know if they originated there, or in any previous edition of D&D. My understanding is that those types of damage apply to cases in which creatures are immune (no damage), resistant (half damage) or vulnerable (double damage) to certain typ...

Re: Spell power progression scale

Force damage? 5e categorizes types of damage, so you have: Piercing, Slashing, Bludgeoning, Fire, Cold, Lightning, Acid, Poison, Necrotic, Force. I've never really seen how different types of damage affect the character via wounds, but I assumed that when (whether by spell or potion, etc.) a single...

Re: Sailors on the Starless Sea - Session Recap

Based on my experience at least that should be more than sufficient given how much stronger a 1st level character is than a zero. A warrior will make short work of everything short of the leviathan and chaos lord and spells have a ton of utility. That is as long as your level 1s don't get insta-gib...

Greetings. Glad to see this forum is back up, it was down when I first started learning to play DCC.

I didn't see a rules ...

Re: Character creation - Wainwright (your dead)

In general I agree with absolutely all of that. This is really just a case of particulars for this situation: - For Portal Under the Stars, I like keeping the map to the scale that's printed (1 square = 5'). It makes the place very cramped when you toss 12-20 nobodies into the funnel. I think it ad...

The wainright seems super OP when dealing with traps to be honest... The two groups who I've run through A Portal Under The Stars both largely survived through clever use of a cart full of rocks.
