Re: CelestiCon, Fremont CA (Aug 30, 2014)

Glory, death, and deity disapproval were all in abundance this afternoon as Judge Chris Garner took a motley group through Jobe Bittman‘s excellent Glipkerio’s Gambit . Super fun adventure; Chris did a great job bring the story to life and my comrades were spot on playing their characters to the hil...

Re: Purple Sorcerer Games: Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pant

I ran the adventure for my home group. 4 players, with 4 PCs each. It did take us 2 nights to finish it, but that's only because we play from about 7pm - 10pm and they are notoriously slow. The group had great fun in the adventure and the last couple of encounters lived up the spirit of the funnel w...

Re: What does Google have that these boards doesn't?

In addition to what @tovokas/Jon Marr said about features (see what I did there... tried to tag someone and was not able to do so as that feature doesn't exist on the forums...), for me it's about reach and engagement. For whatever reason, the G+ Community just seems to be awash in folks who will co...

CelestiCon, Fremont CA (Aug 30, 2014)

Just a tip for any Bay Area crawlers, that there's a DCC RPG session happening at CelestiCon in Fremont CA. I'm going to be there rolling some dice as a player. The judge is running Glipkerio's Gambit. Details are here . Would be nice to see any other locals that can make it. I keep thinking I shoul...

Re: Looking for a non-dungen crawl adventure

Thanks for the plug, Raven_Crowking.

I'd also recommend Doom of the Savage Kings--fabulous adventure with much of the action taking place in and around the small town of Hirot.

Re: What's your prefered initiative tracking method for DCC

I use the Game Mastery board, and actually give it to one of my player's to keep track of so that I can focus on doing all the monster stats behind the screen. It works out pretty well. Obviously you could do something similar with cards and what not, but the player's seem to have fun with the magne...

Re: Getting Players to Buy Books/Dice

How it works in my game: I had the PC's print out the People Them With Monster reference sheets, and bookmark their Crit and Fumble tables so they can find them quickly during game play. I let them borrow my book, and I use the PDF version of rulebook on my laptop. I also create bookmarks for the mo...
