Re: hello! and, I really do have to ask: couldn't the rulebook be gender-inclusive??? please?

I understand your concerns and they are valid. You may be pleased to learn that for the last several years, it has been my pattern to use both male and female gender when writing my DCC manuscripts. Usually, when referring to the judge, I use the female pronoun and when referring to a singular playe...

Re: Where in the Forgotten Realms

I'd probably put it by the Woods of Sharp Teeth, even going so far as to replace Durlag's Tower with the Keep. If that doesn't work, I'd look into putting it elsewhere in the Western Heartlands region.

Re: More guidance for prices?

Leiber was understandably not concerned with economics in his stories. The Twain got great treasure only to watch it vanish in a single stroke of misfortune. Frankly, economics also doesn't concern me. It's not something that interests DCC RPG either, as one can tell just by looking at the equipment...

Re: Forlorn North

There's always a chance, but nothing is likely in the immediate future. My dance card is pretty full with other projects that need finishing before I can propose a return to the North to Joseph Goodman. Thanks for your interest in seeing more though. Glad you like the place!

Re: Courts of Chaos

I've always thought that the forces of Law, Chaos, and Balance are something entirely different from deities. These powers are like gravity: an essential part if the multiverse that keeps things working as intended. As such, they're not worshiped but some do forge pacts with them. The powers interve...

Re: Favourite Lankhmar adventure?

I'm pretty pleased with "Acting Up" and I think it's my favorite Lankhmar adventure I've written. The urban setting lets me experiment with plots that the dungeon just doesn't lend itself to, and AUiL was one of those. "Unholy Nights in Lankhmar" is another one that eschews the usual kick in the doo...

Re: Freelance Theives

First things first: However the Thieves' Guild works and treats freelance thieves in your DCC Lankhmar game is the right way. Ignore anyone else telling you otherwise. But, if you're adamant about running a literary style campaign that hews closely to Leiber's stories, here's some suggestions based ...

Re: Barrier Peaks!!!

I'm happy you're pleased so far! Gnomeboy is indeed correct: any decision to make a pdf version of any part of the book isn't something I'm involved in.

Re: Masks of Lankhmar -- Location of the Temple Tenement of

The map in the module shows the temple tenement as being on the south side of Craft Street and boarded by Dead Dog Alley on the east. However, as Dead Dog Alley is not labeled on the Lankhmar map, I cannot find the temple tenement on the Lankhmar map. Any help in locating it on the map is appreciat...

Any idea who or what this God is?

Found mention of him in Lieber's Forest Claws from the Night and in the DC...

Re: Not a typo, but a comment

An interesting suggestion. We'll consider it as we go through the final tweaks. However, there is no true way to play DCC Lankhmar. The reason it may seem like we're encouraging a "literary" style game is because you're reading the Compendium, which is filled entirely with optional rules for literar...

Hello, If I understood well the rules : when we lose coins (with rats and pips or check the silo) to continue to play, the silo is always refilled to 6. If so, it contains always 6 or more coins.
