I was wondering if anyone here is going to use DCC Rpg to run any old classical adventures like, for example, The Temple of Elemental Evil, Bone Hill, Castle Amber, Tomb of Horrors etc.

I don't have any specific plans but I am sure I will run the classics with DCC eventually.

And it should be easy to do so as well.

I haven't done any of these adventures, but I've used modules for Labyrinth Lord with no trouble at all. Just invert the AC, and when in doubt, DC15.

I may do Palace of the Silver Princess. That was my first way back when.

I have considered doing The Temple of Elemental Evil, but have been trying to make it more "Appendix N"-ish. Also considered using the old cleric/wizard/fighter challenge modules as solo adventures, like using the cleric challenge as an adventure to off set disapproval and sacrifice or something.

I would like to do the U series, but in the past when I've ran 3E conversions of U1 & U2, I've had one gamer in the party who had read them, and used his knowledge to metagame through the adventures.

Thus, I feel I would have to change them, but I think they are so great as is, I'm still not sure.

There are some crackers in the line up, and it would be a shame not to include them in some way.

God I love the U series!

I've been running my group through the old Giants (G-series) modules. I don't bother to convert stuff in advance but "wing it" as we play. Most old school modules should be easy to run.

G1 would be an especially spectacularly brutal funnel, wouldn't it? :twisted:

:lol: I wouldn't use any of the G-series modules as my funnel, as they are all rated somewhere around AD&D 12th level. And I thought I was a tough GM... :wink:

They're a nice set of adventures for experienced characters, however. One thing I like about the old TSR modules is the fact that they are so darned short in text but play long. That'a a great characteristic of the new Goodman Games DCC modules I've seen so far.

GnomeBoy, you're confusing funnel with juicer. How many times do I have to go over kitchen utensils and appliances with you? :lol:

It's a character funnel. With a Puree switch. :lol:

Totally. It might be a while for some of the higher level mods, but the low & mid-level stuff without a doubt (with a bit of re-skinning, treasure changes, etc.)

Can I help it that I like the appliances with the buttons, and want to add some to a funnel...? :mrgreen:

Depends on how big your Giants are. If you make them REALLY big, a 0-level party with just a little stealth can fly under the giants radar. Some well placed ranged attacks could start the giant brawling one-another. (Just don't let one fall on you.)

It's call AGAINST the giants, not snack for the giants! What classic module had a barrel titled Elf Pudding in a humanoid stronghold?

I'm going out on a limb here, but was it A2--Secret of the Slavers' Stockade?

I've been thinking.

DCC aims for a certain vibe, borne out of the legendary N appendix. But the d&d most of us grew up with, basic and advanced 1st ed, didn't really have that vibe.

I'm wondering if DCC rules/vibe will be too 'gonzo/weird' for those classic modules.

What do you think?

Author:  henis [ Wed Mar 28, 2012 3:00 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Classic Modules

Hmmm good point, but I don't think that the awesome vibe DCC rpg gives will be too weird for the classic modules. It may seem that way on some modules, but most of them can be easily converted with little to no hassle in keeping the same story-line or creatures.

There's some talk on Dragonsfoot (located here) about the wizard. Specifically, is the game geared toward long campaign play, or one shot wacky adventures?

Something to do with the corruption picked up by a wizard seems to suggest it is the latter.

What do you think?

Post subject:  Re: Classic Modules

Judging from the latest spell preview, corruption has been toned back quite a bit from the beta. Miscasting a "light" spell can no longer turn you into a newt, and fumbles have to share space with non-permanent misfire results. Miscasts are also tied to the specific spell, it would seem (and I am assuming they get a little more scary with higher level spells). To me, this suggests that a low level Wizard will not be crippled by corruption by the time he rises to level 5.

In any case, spell casting is always a choice, and Wizards can wield swords in DCC if they want to not rely on magic as often.

I was wondering, what about "The Citadel of Fire". I've always wanted to run it and thought that it might make a good higher level adventure, it definitely has some Appendix N inspiration in it.

Post subject:  Re: Classic Modules

Well, this may seem obvious, but the beta rules were...beta rules. :)

Those lessons that were learned are reflected in the final rules.

The folks worried about wizard corruption at high levels may be pleasantly surprised when they play the final rules.
