I have tried to PM someone who is local to me, but my PM won't leave my outbox. Wondering if this is supported.

Re: DCC Halfling only class that's worse than Basic D&D sour

In my long-running DCC campaign, my players each run 3 characters. Each one has a "primary" and none of those are halflings. This led to them abusing the good luck charm power, so I punished them for it every time. When they burned their good luck charm down to 3, the halfling usually ended up dead,...

Re: What DCC Needs Is.....

Let me put this in a different way. I totally understand your views on this. It's that the writing and artwork assumes a level of sophistication that is not for everyone. By no means does the game need to be changed. I'd just LOVE to give me friends' kids the DCC book, on Saturday, but I suspect the...

Re: Matching DCC-appropriate Dice Sets Possible!

Since there is someone who makes dice on the thread, how do we know the spherical dice roll near true? I have the weird triangular d5 and it seems to be unreliable. Results are radically different depending on the surface on which I roll it. I feel as though the d10 and d14 numbered twice serve well...

I do not use mercurial magic, but this is unique to my gaming group. The wizard player is very role playing focused but not much for mastering detailed rules.

Re: Alternate Barbarian

There is a rage mechanic already in DCC which could be adapted for Barbarian or Half-orc. It is on pg. 84 and 85 on Crit Tables IV and V; it is defined in the footnote on pg. 82. It is basically a spellburn-like mechanic (rageburn?) where the character can burn Int or Per to gain a combat advantage....

Something that always resonates with me in fantasy fiction, which I think needs to be part of a compelling campaign world, is a believable history, something that is woven into the world as presented to the reader. The Hyperborians in REH's Conan setting were ancient conquerors; early 20th century N...

I would love a boxed set broken out into manageable soft-covered books. I would buy a few, for me and my players who could not afford one. Including the Zocci dice would be perfect, and would tap into some 1980 red box nostalgia. If GG could publish supplemental materials in the same format that wou...

On the next excursion, against the orc-cult of Yutrus, they burned the halfling down to 4. The or...
