Re: Magic Items

I agree with not having prices listed for magic items. I'm fairly new to pen and paper rpgs, 4e was my first, but I'm already disgusted in the sheer number of magic items tossed about. Healing potions are one thing, but I'm part of a (vastly oversized 12+ player) group. Our last adventure, *everyone...

Re: BETA: What has been learned?

I've been putting thought into the d10 for non-class appropriate checks, I'm not sure how good the "roll 2 10s in a row for auto success" works out probability-wise, there should probably be *no* auto success on these checks, imo. Rolling 2 10s is a 1% chance; which means that even a wizard with 4 s...

Re: Portal under the stars Columbus oh 6/29

The longest part was hand copying sheets, and rolling profession, gear and telling stat modifiers and weapon damage. A few highlights: One of our female players rolled a cutpurse and I got to inform her she had a small chest; much laughter ensued We found out this game isn't for our full group, the ...

Re: What's the largest group you've played?

15 players, ~ 30 pcs.
Everyone rolled one, when it died, I allowed a re roll of occupation, stats and hp
It was chaotic good, combat was almost non existent because I rolled poorly on init. the sheer number of players muddled up the game a bit. 7 players is the biggest group I'll run in the future.

Portal under the stars Columbus oh 6/29

Just finished running the level 0 module at Dave's Clubhouse here in Columbus for a group of 15 players. Everyone rolled 1 pc (only had 2 rulebooks, one I printed and 1 pdf on my ipad) and character creation took a full half hour (including copying sheets by hand, I didn't print enough). I let every...

Re: Higher Level Spells for BETA

I suppose an elf would work just as well :P
I just know personally, the way I usually roll, I'd never play a wizard. Too much chance for corruption with how often I roll 1s.

Re: "Limiting" Corruption

I like the idea of being able to send hordes of npcs to hunt down the disfigured spell casting monster pc. Yes, you're actively trying to kill a pc, but they brought it on themselves

Re: Higher Level Spells for BETA

I'm on my third read through of the dcc beta rules (printed and bound at my local officemax :) ) and it's making me step back and rethink wizards, both in regards to DCC as well as RPGs in general. The fact that magic can easily cause extreme corruption of the caster coupled with the fact that magic...

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

You could always house rule an exercise system; every check using certain abilities bumps you up a notch, after so many uses, the player can trade the experience for stats. Better yet, an option would be xp drain to build stats. This option would increase the player's maximum, but wouldn't repair st...

Re: Designer’s Blog #4: Adventuring in DCC RPG

One of the important things about new monsters is that they utterly avoid the problem with players dealing with any given monster as a known quantity: "Oh, a medusa is giving you trouble? Let's go to the adventurers' shop, boys, and buy each of us a mirror, then we'll go take care of her. We've dea...

Re: Upcoming playtests of DCC RPG

Would anyone be interested in running a game over skype or IRC using the free RPG day module?
I'd love to get into a game, but our local FLGS is totally hung up on 4E, and nobody there really likes to stray from it.
