Re: "Them's Monsters!" -- Kickstarter

Looks like a good zine, but no stretch goals = no point in backing since it's already funded.

Re: Restoring STA Points -- Potions? Spells?

Yeah, I'm thinking of just sprinkling in a few +1 STA potions in the next boss's treasure trove.

Restoring STA Points -- Potions? Spells?

A few of the PCs in the party I judge for have bled out many, many times and are nearing death (3 STA). I was thinking of maybe having pity on them and allowing a few of them to restore a couple of STA points either through a rare potion, an encounter with a powerful genie-type character, etc. Anyon...

Re: Warrior/Thief Advancement

But what choices/advancements make individual warriors distinct from each other? Also thieves? For characters who can't easily use magic (though Warriors can have patrons, and Thieves can use scrolls), it's going to be more of a magic equipment question: a demon sword, magical armor, etc. that othe...

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

Also, I love the progression of the Dice Chain as it is. Those single steps, then double steps, then quadruple steps, ending with a sextoople step just works, since if you're rolling a smaller die, a smaller step makes a bigger difference, and that "worthyness" is true of the higher, larger steps. ...

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

Just using my proposed D modifier table & dice chain. I dunno, maybe its not 'perfect" but certainly seems viable possibly with refinement. Viable? Sure. Necessary? Not to me. Who wants to keep switching dice for different PCs? Seems cumbersome. By changing the die you're rolling, you're also chang...

Re: Any point in spell level?

So I was thinking about how spells work in DCC, with certain thresholds to cast successfully and different tiers of success available for each spell, is spell level even necessary any more? The only function I see spell level having is a level-based gateway to keep players from using spells before ...

Re: How long do torches and lanterns burn in DCC?

If lanterns burn for 6 hours, maybe torches burn for 3? I don't have any real-world torch-burning experience, so I can't say.

Re: The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner - Kicksta

I see it's funded already! That's good.

I'd be using it with BPBM since learning Dark Trails looks like way too much work at this point, and BPBM is sufficient.

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

Personally, I prefer the esthetic of characters morphing over time into something much more unique than a Class, so keeping the Classes really simple (as they are) as a base on which to build is preferable. Like for a short while I had a player with a Warrior, but he could cast magic if it came fro...

Definitely Stephen King -- lots of Lovecraft mythos works in his short stories collections and novels -- and Clive Barker (Books of Blood and Weaveworld are solid).

Re: Converting 3E/4E DCC Modules to DCC RPG Rules: Guideline

I find that 3e is easier to convert than 4e, but the Harley Stroh adventures for 4e are well worth the effort.
Thanks. I just bought all of the 3e DCC modules during the DTRPG sale (at $1 each, how could I not). Any tips on converting to DCC RPG?

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.
