Re: Thief backstab

rules say you can burn luck to add to 'a roll', doesn't limit what kind of roll it is, so yes you can burn luck to add damage

Maybe a big bad that has a mirror that reflects the spell back at the player?

Re: Color Spray spell keeps winning battles

Time to introduce big bads that have some protection against magical spells or something that boosts their saving throw against them? Or.. a big bad that does a spell dual with the player?

Re: Adjusting dice chain

If you are still looking for some way to encourage non-murder-hoboism, you could remind your players that they get the same XP for dealing with "encounters" whether through combat or peaceful dialog or some other clever way, and may even be rewarded bonus XP or some other reward for finding an unexp...

Re: Goodman Games DCC Monster book?

Doesn't the section about monsters in the DCC rulebook make it pretty clear that they want you to be creative with your own monsters instead of relying on a book to give you all the stuff about monsters? Instead of a book that stats out monsters specifically, I could see a book that gives more rando...

Re: The series so far

Just got my copy of the lost city, OAR #4, love the book, but now I feel like having them all together on a shelf will have no over-arching spine-theme. The spine on OAR#4 is purple like the cover, #2 & #3 have red spines, and #1 has a brown spine matching its cover. Now I'm wondering if #5 will hav...

Re: Mighty Deeds for Monster

While I do not think monsters should have "mighty deeds" exactly like how a warrior does. I do think they can be cool by giving them special moves/attacks. My Canardian monsters have a special "duck-bill peck" attack that triggers a second follow up attack if they roll high enough because they "temp...

Re: Minor Birth Augurs for Luck 8-12

I can understand that a +0 bonus from your luck score can make the birth sign a little underwhelming, but that's just because most people in the world are unremarkable and untouched by the hands of fate, so to speak.

Re: Random encounters?

I guess if it's not really laid out as a specific suggestion in the adventure, you could do it any way you like. I keep a cummulative chance for random encounters each time I roll. So like.. first random encounter check, I roll d6 and on a 6 one happens, then on second check, I roll d6 and it happen...

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

I didn't say that, just that the god may be upset about giving healing to players without anything in return. You can still heal at like.. 1 HP a day with rest or something without using magic.

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

Well to start with if the Halfling already has 16+ DEX it’s not much of an improvement at all; no other skill has it's effect reduced in this way. If you're generating characters as the book suggests, then how often are you going to have a halfling with 16+ Agility? Not very often at all! I just ra...

If the person playing a Cleric doesn't refuse to heal people unless they start worshiping their god, then there is something wrong with that player.

Looks like OAR #5 will be Castle Amber! With a nice amber colored cover too. Again I wonder though, if the spine will be red. Hmmm.

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

There are two "events", each has a 1/16 chance to happen. 256 total combined outcomes, 15/256 for first attack to crit, 15/256 for the second attack to crit, 1/256 for both to crit. 11.7% for either the first or second attack to crit, 0.39% for both to crit.

Re: Lack of a cleric spell

I think, mechanically, it is a little more involved for a cleric to gain worshipers for their god and build up the congregation. Most of it should be done through your adventuring and role playing, as well as spending resources on building/enhancing a church, maybe charity work if your god is into i...

I've got OAR #1,2,&3 so far, its nice to have copies of the old original adventures mixed with an updated version. So, with OAR #3 it looks like you added a ribbon to the book? I like this. I notice that OAR#1 had a spine the same color as the cover, but #2 & #3 have red spines. Makes me wonder if O...
