As with thieves, I find the luck mechanics to be pretty boss.

Re: Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pantry - 0-level funnel!

Dervos the corn farmer is a man of courage. He will push past the group and burst into the door!

OOC - That marching order is fine for me.

Re: Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pantry - 0-level funnel!

Silas the Ostler begins approaching the others gathered for the quest, pestering them for details about their makeshift weapons. Percival follows him, eagerly joining in on any conversation that will include him.

Silas always starts with, "Hail and well met! What do you have there?"

Re: Nebin Pendlebrook's Perilous Pantry - 0-level funnel!

Eibur, the jittery and suspicious potato farmer, shadows his friend Dervos into the tavern. He can only think of his goat tethered outside, and its security. Outgoing Percival, the halfling with hands permanently tinted indigo from years of dye-work, gestures them over to a table. Silas the Ostler, ...

Re: Home Game 1

This game ... has a little less "player choice" when it comes to player design. Another way to put that is that is has *more* choice, because you're limited by imagination not how many feats, etc. are in the book(s). This echoes something I noticed in Pathfinder, 4e, etc - that when everything has ...

Blasphemy! Separating Race and Class

I know this is a touchy subject for some, so please don't maul the messenger. Since DCC is all about houseruling, I'm curious how people who have separated race and class have done it in their game. I like to get feedback from other judges on their experiences before tinkering myself, so I'd love to...

Re: Reader's guide to Lankhmar fiction

I'd love an omnibus edition of some kind. I have some collections of various quality and organization, but I'd love to have a go to set to use (like I do with Howard, frex). I've gotten lazy about tracking it all down. Is there a newer one anyone knows of? PS my first exposure to Lankhmar was the Ad...

Re: Demihumans in S&S

Elves and Dwarves (especially if based on the nordic version) do have a place in sword & sorcery. Just ask Moorcock and Poul Anderson. Sword and sorcery is more than just Howard and the rest of the "antediluvian barbarian fiction" writers. Certainly! My issue was more with a blanket ban of Demihuma...

Re: Demihumans in S&S

I think dwarves and elves and the rest are fine for S&S play. I just would make the flavor a more S&S one and less middle earth one. Doomed Norse type Dwarves fighting the giants in the peaks. Alien Elves from another dimension or world with superior technology or magic who conquered the world long...

Re: Playing DCC in school? I just started. Anyone else?

I'm a public school teacher, and I sponsored a game club years ago. The problem I had was that I wanted to make the club meaningful and discuss probabilities and game design, whereas the students just wanted to play games. I finally decided that their version wasn't "academic" enough for my taste a...

Re: Playing DCC in school? I just started. Anyone else?

I'm a public school teacher too. I've had my kids asking about RPGs, so this one has come to mind. While the kids are comfortable with some of the weirder stuff, I actually fear the parents a little more. Even though they are ok with the kids playing violent video games, sometimes other stuff spooks...

Re: DCC RPG 4th printing: What do you want?

I'm stoked for all the little add-ons to the core book. The folder and stickers are fun, for sure, but the drilled in tabs and sewn in bookmarks are really fun touches that I think will make the book a cooler thing to own. I scored six modules I already owned off it. I want to trade them, but I may ...

Demihumans in S&S

I've been reading some Crawl! Fanzines (which are great fun) and noticed in the first issue that it says: For DCC RPG to fit the S&S mold, the removal of demi-humans (such as elves & dwarves) is the first obvious step. I think this a correct intention but an incorrect execution. While the Elves, Dwa...

Re: Introductions Thread - Join the Band!

Hi all - long time lurker, first time poster. Been buying stuff and backing DCC Kickstarters for a while, but the game is more and more hitting my sweet spot as I move backwards into traditional Appendix N reading and I'm getting to actually play a lot more, so I thought I would talk about it now.
