Re: Thief Action Dice

Some Judges, including some I have experienced personally, will not allow you to use backstab with another character acting as a distraction. Or say... don't let you "backstab" with a ranged weapon, even though it is technically allowed by the rules. Marzio and Jim are right to ridicule those judge...

Re: Thief Action Dice

Now I'm interested in the discussion about how often the thief can use backstab. What are the opposing views? "When attacking a target from behind or when the target is otherwise unaware". Whenever this happens, the backstab happens. A good Thief/Warrior duo has the warrior use her Deed to set up t...

Re: Thief Action Dice

Please correct me if I'm misinterpreting this in the DCC core book, in the Thief class section, under 'Ability Dice', it states that Ability Dice can be used for attacks and Skill Checks. No other class has this. Does this mean that Thieves can use a D20(if that is their ability die) to make any an...

Re: Goblinoid alignment

Re: Patrons for non-wizards

Another thing I would consider: Patron bond is for when the PC wants to get the patron's attention and prove their worth to the patron.

If a patron wants to select you, there is no need for a spell. Just roll or determine the spell result however you like.

Re: Luck penalty and zero luck

"Luck can be restored in the same way that a man normally gains good or bad luck – by appealing to the gods. Great acts of courage in defense of one’s deity may earn a boon, just as acts in opposition to a devil may earn a curse." IOW, if your Luck is getting low, you may wish to appeal to the gods ...

Or possibly more greedy.

Or perhaps have some other aspect to them that makes them willing to act as patrons.

Re: mighty deed disadvantage

Is there any disadvantage to declaring a mighty deed with every attack? As I understand the rules, a warrior or dwarf may declare a mighty deed with every attack and if the deed roll is 3 or higher and the attack lands, the mighty deed takes effect. If the deed roll is less than 3 then no big deal,...

Weird to not just start with They Served Brandolyn Red. Wonder what the reasoning was. Maybe it has to do with stock levels...

In my games, going to 0 Luck is possible, but always fatal for the character.

Especially when you are talking about things like traps, rounds are important because it tells you how much time the PCs have available, and how many Action Dice they have a chance to use.
