Re: When will the dice sets be available?

Yeah, seems that is true about the d5. I got my set yesterday and was rolling it to see. As long as its a good tossed roll up in the air and not just rolled off the palm, it more often than not landed on the side than on its big flat face side with the 1 an 5. It is kind of crazy that it dose that a...

Non-combat encounter?

In DnD basic there were guidlines for tracking how long it takes players to explore. Basicially, you would ask each player to describe what they are doing, one person might map the room, another might search for secret doors, and another might just stand guard at a door listining for approchinc mons...

Re: When will the dice sets be available?

Um, is it just me or do alot of those dice look like they would be really easy to roll in a baised way. The d7 for example has a side with the 7 on it that is much larger surface area than the other faces of the die, so it seems like it is not going to be very good and generating random numbers. It ...

Re: what game is most like the DCC RPG?

I would say so far that the most similar game is DnD Basic, because elves, halflings, and dwarves are their own class, and sounds like they follow how those classes were intended to work (that is, in both, the elf is a fighter/mage, the dwarf is basically a fighters, etc) If one has to draw a direc...

Re: Zero-level Character Concepts

One big thing to keep in mind is that each 0th level character gets a random profession and a random piece of equipment, and I think that this tends to define them a lot more than a term like "coward"; at least it does at the onset since you don't know which characters will survive or how they will...

I have converted this adventure to 3.x, dnd 4th ed, 4th ed hackmaster, and hackmaster basic, so my players know it is a tradition for me to ring in a new game system with this adv...

Re: [Design Question] DCC RPG and 10 Levels

I want to be able to go from farm boy to demi god in the rules. I'm not sure that this really fits Joseph's "mission statement" for the game, unless I'm misunderstanding your use of demigod. Is Conan a demigod? Elric? Those are the kinds of characters that the DCC RPG will probably "max out" at. Ma...

Re: Just houserule it

How about making disarm/sunder actions be avalible to fighters that succed on a DoMA? That sounds like a real simple way to introduce those rules into the game (and any one that is not a fighter just dosn't have the training to disarm or sunder). You can also chang disarm to droped wepaon and sunder...

Also, if the MDoA reqires a succesful hit in addition to rolling 3+, than even a 75 percent chanch at level 6 will still fail to activate about half the time. If you used precentile dice for both rolls, its like you have to roll 50 percent or less (on average for a fighter, im assuming), and than yo...

Re: Aereth reboot for DCC RPG?

I don't know, I am kind of leaning towards the development of a new campagin setting customed tailored to the new game. But either way, I would like it they continue to have an interactive map with the locations of all the moduals. That is really cool I think.

Re: Levelling from 0 to 1

And I agree that mixed-level parties don't tend to work well. However, it's possible that it would work in DCC since a level-0 character is technically only 100 XP behind a level-1 character. What? 100? didn't know that. That's terrible. I hate the idea even more. It only takes 100 XP to jump for b...
