Re: Links to DCC RPG Resources, updated 6/21

Cool man. Your missing the dagger damage for backstab though. :) Thanks! I added the 1d10 for backstab and adjusted the margins for the footnotes to make that page a bit easier to read. When I get some time later this week I'll start working on the crit tables at the end, but I suspect most people ...

Re: Links to DCC RPG Resources, updated 6/21

I picked up an old 4E D&D screen from an RPG flea market around here for $2. I took the Judge Screen Reference Sheets from above and started tweaking them so they would print in landscape mode to fit the screen. I noticed that some of the tables did not match what was eventually published in the boo...

Re: Thick Skull Adventures

Where in the Hell is Larvik DCC? So, the multiple delays on this project is one of the prime reasons why I’m so hesitant to use Kickstarter to fund one of these adventures. If you guys had ponied up your hard earned coppers back in Feb when I thought I was close to completion I’d be feeling really ...

Re: Best foot forward

Obviously I'm biased towards Attack of the Frawgs (having written it), but I would encourage you to look at Doom of the Savage Kings now that it's available. I know it's technically a 1-st level adventure but the writing for that adventure is superb. And don't forget the adventures from Purple Sorce...

Re: Do we really need clerics and magic healing?

I actually like the idea of recognizable Gods & Demons in my campaign, and clerics (and chaotic cultists) can play a lot into this. I've created 2 new pantheons (think greek gods and hawaiin gods) that play heavily into the action of the writing. Now mind you, the action of the writing vs. the actio...

All,

Thanks to everyone who responded. Even if the mod wasn't to your taste it's still helpful to me to learn what folks are looking for expecting. I'll write up a longer "lessons learned" blog later on but wanted to thank everyone for their feedback.

Hello folks, As I continue to grind out the new upcoming Haunting of Larvik Island , I ponder some of the elements I may or may not include in it and wonder what lessons I can learn now that DCCRPG is approaching it's birthday.

I like the shorter modules best. I have enough trouble running the existing catalog in 3, sometimes 4 sessions.

My current DCC remaster project of The Haunting of Larvik Island is at about 14K words (most of the 24 page mods are about 10K words.) It's currently at 24 pages and that's without me adding the art, maps and license back in. I've also reached out to the original artist to commission a couple more P...

Re: Appendix N type movies.

I know it doesn't technically qualify as a movie, but I feel HBO's Game of Thrones clearly fits the bill. Complex characters, some dark magic at work, loose morals, I would imagine that Mr. Gygax would happily of included George RR Martin's novels in his list.

Re: Allowing level-up during funnel adventure?

Well, after all that, 2 of the 4 players had to bail this weekend. So I got Attack of the Frawgs real quick-like, and played that with the remaining 2 players--it looked shorter and more amenable to having fewer players. It worked fine, but there was clearly no opportunity for a level-up in the mid...
