Working with Joseph is always a treat...

Goodman Games -- and Joseph in particular -- set the bar pretty high for customer service, approachability, product quality and overall coolness.

Congrats, Harley, on the DCC Line Editorship... Woot! With all your hard work on the line Goodman Games projects, it's certainly a well-earned and well-warranted role.

While none of the playtesters I ran through played the sword, the sword was played as an NPC. He was talkative and expressive, and even a bit arrogant and mocking of the feeble characters who were trapped and couldn't even take care of something as simple as a Devil Lich, etc. Those were some memora...

I'd guess that divine casters would be treated together. While the core focus of such a book would certainly be Clerics, it would need to include information for Paladins, Druids and Rangers as well -- at least from their spellcasting perspectives. The interesting thing with such a book is more than...

If folks think they can retire in luxury after clearing out the mine, let them!

Yes, I did not set an absolute limit on how much value can be drawn f...

I'm not sure, but I think it was Arbitrary or DM Fiat...

We changed the Chapter breakdown a few times as we updated content for the guide, but I glossed over this reference. 2) I'm not seeing anything in the chapter on classes that deals with this at all.

Will the damage that Ubo the Barbarian sufferes from his Vicious Keen longsword (1d6) be rolled by the player, or will he take average damage (3) every time he hits?

I assume that this applies to the DMs rolls only, correct? Players will still be rolling their damage, not applying averages? Correct. Players/PCs will roll for their damage as normal. The "transparency" and balance Joseph is alluding to is coming largely from the DM side of the screen -- so attack...
