Re: Would you use the DCC RPG for long term campaign play ?

If it stays as is probably not. Though I will definately use it for crazy gonzo fantasy one shots! As I think it does that very well and I can see players really having a great time.

Re: Luck

I personnaly think the whole Luck mechanic needs to be rethought.

There are so many oddities to how it functions currently that I think it adds very little to the game other than a lot of head scratching "huh? that makes no sense" moments.

My 2c.

Thieves & Halflings, Some Thoughts.

I really think the Thieves Luck die is a lot more "fun" than the Halflings static +2 instead of +1, so may i ask why the Halfling doesn't also get to roll a die for each luck point sacrificed instead of a fixed amount? Also, i really think there needs to be a more organic and, yes i'll say it again,...

Funky Dice & CL?

Wouldn't it be cooler to use the funky dice as a variable CL for Clerics, Elves & Wizards? You know like Warriors (attack dice) & Thieves (luck dice)?

I think its a great idea to make these things a little more "random", and thus more fun!

Funky Dice & Weapon Damage?

Just out of curiosity, why do none of the weapons utilize the funky dice for damage? Wouldn't they be a cool way to make small differences between various very similar weapons?

Cheers.

Re: 0 lvl to lvl 1 Transition/Options - Thoughts?

Adding lots of extra details just makes losing a 0-level character that much more painful. Lots of detail? One extra 1/4 page table in a book full of tables for just about everything? ;) The other thing with the funnel and 0 lvl characters is that i can't see groups wanting to do it more than once,...

0 lvl to lvl 1 Transition/Options - Thoughts?

Hi all, A few of us at work today were chatting about the last 2 sessions, and something that came up was the disconnect in the transition from 0 lvl to 1st lvl characters. Basically, there are tonne of occupation to class lvl transitions that make no sense at all. Things like Dwarves and Elves sudd...

Seriously. This is the shiznit! Please use it Mr Goodman. Then all you have to do is give the thief some other cool funky dice goodness and iconic "powers" and your game has moved into the realms of full blown greatness! :)

Of course! Basically i had 4 players, all of which rolled 3 0 lvl's by the book. I would list them ALL here, but truth be told i can't remember them all. I do however remember the surviving 5. 1.

Re: Percentage Thief Skills

I'm strongly opposed to a formal skill system, and I think maybe its reference should be dropped entirely. I'm OK with how the "skills" system is vague and considered only for convenience as they are currently, but I think it should be referred to as an Ability Test... The SKILLS chapter should be ...

3. The Crit tables need to be a bit more generic. There were at least 5 occasions in the 2 sessions where the Crit table made no sense at all with the narrative.

Hi all, Note: I work in hospitality...i manage bars, and i game with others who work in bars, so we play at odd times, hence the reason we have been able to play 2 sessions in 2 days that aren't a weekend.

Re: Mighty Deeds of Arms Question

The combined result of the d20 + d3 + Strength Bonus must beat the targets AC (In other words you must still hit the target as per normal), the MDoA tables only refer the d3 (or higher dice as the warrior gains levels). Thus a low level warrior will never get into the 4, 5, 6, 7+ range until he gets...

I know a lot of these things will be common sense to experienced roll players but if a new player picks the game up he/she may not know how to handle them, and well, they are all very common events in a session. Just to clarify, DCC RPG is aimed at experienced Judges . I am aware of that, but then ...

Re: Monsters

Please no monster stat blocks. Things like that, bit by bit, number by number, make everything so dry and robotic. The mechanics of the game start to become transparent, the numbers and rules bloated, and the mystique and magic of the game is slowly sucked away. If you really need to know the stren...

Re: Percentage Thief Skills

I agree the whole % for thieves and D20 for others doesn't make sense. I am an experienced (since BECMI) and that made me scratch my head. % is a hark back to early editions that is not required. The skill section is short and sweet and all that is needed (IMO) is for this" "If your character’s bac...

Re: Monsters

In the end i don't mind which way they go, as long as they go one way or the other.

For me so far this applies to a lot of the game system i've read so far. There seems to be a lot of a "bit of this, bit of that" going on, which in the end just makes the game harder to digest and enjoy.

So the above noted sneaking example, if the thief fails his % check he can ALSO make the normal Agi check. I think I forgot to actually write this anywhere in the rules though. Thank goodness for...

Re: How has you attitude toward DCCRPG changed since June 7?

It should be the premiere feature of DCCRPG like the Siege engine in C&C. It's already used for warrior's deeds. It should be integrated into the wizard as well. He should roll d20 + d3 at first level to determine spell effects (this means moving all first level spells to 1-12, lost failure instead...
