Re: What other Appendix N inspired settings would you like to see?

I agree wholeheartedly. Things like challenge ratings & balanced encounters really destroy the sense of danger the players (and characters) should have. Not to mention the video gamey "short & long rests." That's why DCC is good for S&S game play. Lots of randomness & letha...

Re: What other Appendix N inspired settings would you like to see?

Modiphius currently has the rights to the Robert E. Howard stuff though personally I think DCC would be a much better fit than the clunky 2d20 system.

Re: What other Appendix N inspired settings would you like to see?

Funny that you mention that. For my upcoming "Original Adventurers Reincarnated" campaign, the party will have to recover five pieces of an artifact to banish a demon lord. And the places they must go are: 1. City of Brass 2. Dying Earth 3. The Purple Planet 4. Empire of the East/Changelin...

Re: Original Adventurers Reincarnated

The excitement surrounding the launch of "The Music of the Spheres" KS got me thinking about my campaign plans and how I could make it more DCC, especially in terms of the villains. My original concept was too close to something I've been doing for our Castles & Crusades game. So now, ...

Also, they are reprinting it as a hardcover later this year. Had it heard this earlier, I likely would have waited, though my boxed set is in perfect condition.

Second Printing

So do we know when the second printing will be available? And will there be an option for people who own the first printing to get the new material separately?

You may not want to hear this, but I just snagged a new Purple Planet Boxed set on Ebay for a not too outrageous price. You should check there regularly, as there are often copies (generally used) for sale. The prices vary greatly however. I had been looking since last summer to find one I'd be will...

Re: Another Amazing Hook

The good & the bad about the DCC modules tends to be their, well, modularity. Easy to drop them in and/or do one shots but you sometimes need to work in links between them if you want a longer campaign. But I have some of that in mind for what I hope to do, and the "real" campaign will...

Another Amazing Hook

So, as some of you know, I've been sketching out notes and a campaign arc for my "Original Adventurers Reincarnated" idea whereby our original B/X characters from the 1980s get brought back from the dead to save the from a threat that no one alive can handle. I plan on stringing together a...

Mercurial Magic as Campaign Hook

So, as I've mentioned in another thread, I reskinned all our original 1981-82 B/X characters for a high level DCC romp down the road where they get to save the world one last time. To make it more fun & random I used the Purple Sorcerer site to randomly generate the grimoires & mercurial mag...

Re: Original Adventurers Reincarnated

The old characters have been re-skinned for DCC. I've sketched out a broad campaign outline and decided to add Blackmoor to my dimensional hopping, especially since some of these PCs played the Blackmoor modules back in the 80s.

Original Adventurers Reincarnated

Okay, so I've been gaming since I got the Moldvay boxed set for Christmas in 1981. Among the things that finally drew me to DCC after playing the originals and retroclones like OSE are the cool 70s vibes and just the gonzo sense that anything can happen in the adventure, with random spells, crazy ad...

Free League's Second Edition of The One Ring RPG raised almost 2 million US dollars and funded in 4 minutes. It's dropping this fall so I think it will be quite awhile before anyone else gets the rights to Middle Earth.

Luckily that's my family group so only my brother has played much, and only very infrequently since the 80s. So it's pretty new for all of them. But I totally hear where you're coming from.

I never give the AC out; just let them roll. Usually they can figure it out pretty quickly anyhow. Of course now that I've got a brand new gamer, he's in the dark about everything. Still hasn't mastered what the different dice are or what they're used for. We just point and say "Roll this one.&...

Yes, Hyperborea is pretty cool. I'm more of a Basic guy myself, and I don't need all of the specialized classes for instance, but it really takes what works about 1E and makes it into something unique. Have you looked at Adventures Dark and Deep? Not nearly as cool as Hyperborea, because Hyperborea...

Re: Help Blending B/X into DCC

Sounds cool. I've done something similar, adding DCC elements to my OSE/OSR games. So we use action dice, the dice chain, and have a possibility of spell failure with corruption or deity disfavor. We use crits too, but I can't decide on whether to use my own streamlined Crits table or the DCC ones s...

Re: Looking for a game

I'm up for it if anything ever gets going. I've judged for novice gamers but not actually been a player for DCC. But I've been playing D&D since 1981, never moving beyond 1st edition or its retroclones. DCC is as hip & modern as I'm willing to go.
