Re: Restoring STA Points -- Potions? Spells?

You could have the players encounter a magical water-spring or something with sweet water that heals injuries. Or they could meet up with some mythical being who invites them for a banquet with food that heals them. EDIT: Or you run into a higher level cleric who can cast the restore spell for a fav...

Re: Thief Action Dice

Some Judges, including some I have experienced personally, will not allow you to use backstab with another character acting as a distraction. Or say... don't let you "backstab" with a ranged weapon, even though it is technically allowed by the rules.

Re: Confused about the highest Patron Bond result

1. The way I read it, you can cast "Invoke Patron" at +2, up to four times a day. You also gain two patron spells. Instead of casting invoke patron, you may cast one of the patron spells. Each patron spell can be cast once a day. There is no bonus to cast the patron spell. So you decide to use one o...

Re: Dwarf Shield Bash and Attack Die

When your warrior reaches level 5, getting a second action die, what you get is.. 1d20 for first action, 1d14 for second. 1d7 for deed die 18-20 threat range 1d24 on the crit table 5 Compared to say.. a level 2 warrior 1d20 for action die 1d4 deed die 19-20 threat range 1d14 on crit table 3 So being...

Re: Dwarf Shield Bash and Attack Die

RAW, it says declare A deed before any attack, but not declare A deed for EVERY attack. So I see a gray area based on RAW as to whether you can do more than one deed or not, but everything I read implies that you declare A deed, one deed, not one per attack.

Re: Dwarf Shield Bash and Attack Die

I think you'd only be allowed to attempt one deed per turn anyways. A warrior with an extra action die to use for an extra attack each turn would still only get to perform one deed a turn, so a dwarf with a regular attack and a shield bash will only get to attempt one deed a turn as well. As for add...

There are some good examples in the "DCC Annua...

Re: Goblinoid alignment

I think of "lawful" vs "chaotic" as cosmic alignment stuff, kind of like being a libra vs gemini or whatever. But if it makes you feel any better, being lawful doesnt mean you are "good" , it just means you follow some structure. Two lawful human kingdoms can go to war and kill each-other and have h...

Re: Abolish the Thief Class

Well, I would say some Judges are more harsh on allowing thiefs to do their thing with backstab than others, some players are less imaginative than others in using terrain or circumstances to their advantage, and some gaming tropes for dungeon design may be limiting player options for hiding in shad...

Re: Patrons for non-wizards

I've been working on a "non wizard" version of "patron bond" kind of system for a little while, mulling it in the back of my mind. Part of the idea requires that the patrons kind of be accessible living beings in the world you're playing in. So far I have it that either you are invited to a feast by...

Not fully fleshed out yet, but I have the basics down, probably still needs refined, honed, sharpened, fine tuned, etc. Channeled through arcane means, you are able to transfer mass from one or more objects into others. 1-12: Failure. Forgotten 13-15: You may transfer mass between one held object an...

I don't think it adds much emphasis on the Ability Scores.

Missed opportunity? Ability Score based +/-D modifiers?

So one thing I've been thinking about recently is that one aspect of DCC RPG that makes itself separate from other games is the dice chain. Some modifiers in the game still give a straight up +/- to the roll, while others actually modify the die that you roll for determining success/failure. While I...

Re: race-as-class vs class-as-race

Well one of the problems with D&D is stat bonuses from race. I don't think having multiple dwarf, elf, whatever classes available would lead down that road if you kept it like the human classes where you can just kinda.. fit your character into a role that might be better for their stats.
