Re: core book (images of women) really bad for me. Don't want players to lose their characters. Ideas?

In the spirit of @Raven_Crowking's suggestion, almost all the 3rd party folks have swag stickers. The cover of my "table copy" is covered with stickers from Dark Trails, Hobonomicon, etc. If you would like some Thick Skull Adventures stickers just let me know and i'll pop some into snail mail for yo...

Re: Shorter adventures (Less than 4 hours)

My go-to short adventure is Terry Olson's fabulous "Elzemon and the Blood-Drinking Box"; the great thing about that adventure (in addition to it's clever plot and writing), is that depending on how you want to adjudicate The Big Walk Down The Stairs, you can actually make the adventure longer or sho...

Re: Spoilers - DCC Horror #5: Creep, Skrag, Creep

Hey SublimeSabrosa! Stephen Newton here (the author) - here's the gist of it: L1 is in the middle of the ship. There's a ladder that goes to main deck (M1). The PCs can climb up out of that. She ship is a cargo ship, so it's got those large hatches common on wooden cargo ships (something like 10'x10...

I'd be using it with BPBM since learning Dark Trails looks like way too much work at this point, and BPBM is sufficient.
BPBM issue #1 was one of the original inspirations for writing it, so you'll be in good hands.
Thanks for backing!

Which is fine because it's what I do with all my DCC adventures. Shipping fee is never worth it. I really hope it makes it to ...

Re: Clerics & their Gods- any books?

What about details on the "starter" gods for clerics per the Core Rules: Ildavir, Daenthar, etc? Seems sensible to have info on these available to players for better PC depth and roleplaying. Daenthar gets a write up, as do the other "starter" gods from the DCC core rule book mentioned above. Perha...

How many of you run your funnels as written with 1d4 to start? Generally the characters end up dead with any contact at all. I am considering running future ones at 1d4+2 so they might at least survive one whack possibly. I always start my funnel PCs with 1d4+2 (if you go into Jon Marr's Crawler 0-...
