Re: Expanded Occupations and Ability-Based Tables

Welcome to the forums, Pesky. Great first post. :) I love the concept, but I can't help but wonder if there's a less math-intensive approach to reach the same result. Colin Thanks and thanks, Colin. Yeah, I realize that the scheme lacks the virtue of simplicity. There must be simpler way to do it; ...

Re: PSG: The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk

No, I actually was thinking of a Print+PDF combo. I mentioned PotSC because I don't have that one, either, and wondered how long I could wait and still get Print+PDF for it. Or how that works. My eventual plan was to do both print and PDF for the module trilogy, but now I have to consider the hardb...

Re: Dwarves in Plate. Impractical?

I just assume that burly dwarves can shrug off the penalty and move at their normal rate in heavy armor. I can understand them having a lower top speed, but they're built for heavy loads. Halflings would be slowed. :)

Re: PSG: The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk

How long does "now" last? I haven't purchased PotSC yet but eventually want the combo. When I say 'combo' I'm referring to the print and pdf versions of the same adventure. I'm guessing you're referring to 'bundling' -you want to purchase both Perils and Ooze Pits together... I'm still working on t...

Re: PSG: The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk

Thanks!

Yes, the print version (in lovely full color) should be available within two weeks.

As with Perils of the Sunken City, if you purchase the PDF now, you will be able to purchase the print version at the reduced 'combo' price when it's available. ($5.99 instead of $8.99)

Re: Expanded Occupations and Ability-Based Tables

Colin,

When all the charts are out, I'll add the stat based logic of your new charts as an option in the Zero Level Party Generator. :)

(I love the wonderful absurdity of 4 agility hunters and 5 strength blacksmiths, but this is a logical alternative.)

I hear you Hawkwind! Though in this case I think it's just a case of the launch of the DCC RPG and the rise of Kickstarter in most folk's consciousness colliding. I don't see another mad rush happening any time soon. :)

I agree with NobleDrake... I like to look at surviving the funnel as the culmination point for a transformation that's been going on for a while.

I think tangible stuff like this is always a plus at the table. Like Colin said just a bit more immersion.
