Re: submitted for your review, a new patron

does anyone have any thoughts on the patron spells i created?

its kind of hard to tell how to fit them into the scheme.

i know balance is less of an issue in this genre, but i dont want the wizards who choose gruuhm to feel cheated, nor do i want them to be stupidly overpowered.

Re: submitted for your review, a new patron

First of all I love the work you did, it's a great theme! The Patron Taints are particularly creative :-) I'm probably going to introduce this in my next game. I had one question and one suggestion: 1) Stolen breath: Gruuhm abhors elemental air, and demands that his minion give up their own breath ...

Re: mercurial magic

3) allowing each wizard or elf to roll 3 mercurial effects and choose one that applies to every spell he casts. A fun spin on this is to have the Player make the percentile roll, but then have the option of "flip-flopping" the result. So, if they rolled 69, for example, they could take that result,...

mercurial magic

i like the idea behind unique manifestations for each spell for each wizard. however. some of the results from the mercurial magic table can be just plain outrageous. i mean... i KNOW magic is supposed to be unpredictable... but my player looked at me like i was crazy when i told him that "yes... ev...

index?

why is there no index in the DCC core rules? a book as thick as that REALLY needs one. is there one going to be worked up so i can tack it to the inside of my book?

Re: magic wands??

well thats all very well and good. but you should NOT specifically reference the "fourth level spell 'magic wand'" if you have no intention of including said spell.

possible eratta? scythe and shroud - stream of vomit

the 'stream of vomit' power (on pg 50 i think?) is listed as being reliable, but also has a miss effect. was this intentional? typically reliable powers do nothing on a miss but are not expended.

Re: balance concern... assasin

So your assumption #3 is incorrect - the assassin's Intelligence modifier sets an upper limit. Note that the death of the target also limits the number of points you can accumulate against them. AHHHHH.... theres the rub. ok i see that now. the sinewy assasin will likely not have the highest intmod...

balance concern... assasin

ok, let me make sure i understand correctly... 1) most assasin attacks grant one or more study points. 2) study points grant an escalating power bonus to both hit and damage to the target you are studying when using most any attack 3) there are no upper limits to study points, simply repeating the p...

is not the wand of burning hands a bit of a waste on such a large mech? if designed as anti infanty it would make more sense for it to be mounted on the legs, perhaps with a 360 degree pivot mount? another interesting option for such a tall mech would be for it to have a wand of stinking cloud mount...

Re: WHAT IF (an idea for a dragonmech plot)

i got the impression from reading the core dragonmech book that while the moon is probably always visible (due to light reflection from the planet maybe?) is still has its traditional phases. but i suppose that's up to the DM. i think it'd be pretty heinous when dealing with lycanthropes if EVERY ni...

WHAT IF (an idea for a dragonmech plot)

WHAT IF the disease/curse that causes lycanthropy is of lunar origin? After all, the moon plays a major part in lycanthrope lives, moreso now that it is closer to the earth. As a lunar influence, perhaps the lycanthropy disease has a sort of subtle intelligence, like the disease which creates the 's...
