Thanks.
Not sure yet. Still assembling the group. That'll help determine the where and the when.

I'll PM you with more detail.

Looking to start DCC game in Bethlehem/Lehigh Valley PA area

As the title suggests, I'm trying to start an ongoing DCC game in the Bethlehem, PA area (or anywhere around the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton Lehigh Valley area in Northeast Pennsylvania.)

If you're interested in possibly joining in, let me know.

Re: Best starter/beginning 0-level funnel module

Are the players RPG vets? Newbies? A mix? Not sure yet. Either vets or a mix. Launching a campaign? Running a one-shot? The latter, with hopes of it turning into the former if all goes well. I've not really been involved in gaming for the past couple of years. This is pretty much just my (slowly) g...

Re: DCC #35 Compatibility w/DCC RPG

I am in the process of planning my first DCC campaign. I'm wondering about the practicality of investing in the 3E Aereth gazetteer (PDF). How much has the setting changed versus what's implied in DCC RPG? Thanks in advance! How much has changed? Much. As far as I can tell, there's some locations t...

Re: DCC RPG Default Campaign World

Speaking as someone who worked on the original, my guess is that there would have to be some significant retooling, or some re-imagining. Some of the names might remain the same, but the details and the vibe would be distinctly new and different. When we were creating the original DCC world, we were...

Re: Megadungeons and Appendix N

The story "Red Nails" is essentially one big above-ground megadungeon. ... and the Basic D&D module "B4: The Lost City" is essentially "Red Nails" . If you want to try a mega-dungeon for the DCC RPG, it might be a good place to start. You can pick up a copy of it on eBay for a few bucks. It's still...

Re: Zocchi DIce Poll

The "full" Dicenomicon app runs $4.99, IIRC. It covers just about any polyhedral dice shape you can imagine, including the stuff in the DCC game. Seems to me to be a good way to test out the DCC without spending a lot of money on dice you may not want, especially since you'll probably be able to use...

I'd use a dice roller app like Dicenomicon too if I played this game on an ongoing basis.

Funny that just the other day, the term "Aereth Two" popped into my head.

The far north, lots of the Southlands, most of the Lostlands ... I hope some of th...

I wouldn't say that "Age of Cthulhu" is necessarily 'better' than the other options you've listed (although AoC is specifically meant for use with the Call of Cthulhu RPG ruleset from Chaosium). 'Different' is probably the better way of describing it. It's Call of Cthulhu with a distinctly pulp-era ...

Re: Bring back Broncosaurus Rex

Savage Worlds would definitely be a great choice for Broncosaurus Rex.

I also wouldn't mind seeing the FATE rules for this either. Spirit of the Century is an awesome game that uses FATE, and I think Broncosaurus Rex would fit right into that system as well.
