Writer Q & A - Jay Little

Greetings, all. In addition to answering questions on the individual Goodman Games forums, Joseph was kind enough to create this Adventure Design forum for aspiring writers and GG regulars to talk about Adventure Design and writing. I hope the other writers will follow suit and open up a thread dedi...

Not related to the original question, but a GenCon question in general... For the XCrawl tourneys (which are completely full in terms of registration), if one of the players doesn't show will Generic Tickets be accepted? Sorry this took so long to respond - I only saw this post now. I am conferring...

Yep - big thanks to Adrian for working so hard to fix the problems posed by the original room assignments and the printing errors GenCon made regarding both the Xcrawl and DCC tournaments.

Yes.

Early Buzz on GenCon's Xcrawl Tournament - PhoenixCrawl Open

http://linnaeus.wordpress.com/2007/07/23/phoenix-open/ My good friend Gerald Cameron, one of the playtesters and editors who helped provide some great feedback on the PhoenixCrawl module, wrote about it in his latest blog. He really enjoyed the sneak peak, and talks a bit about the product line. His...

Things have been developing rather nicely, from what I've seen. The PCs are going to present some tough decisions for the players -- I think most folks will have a hard time keeping some of them off the roster. Round 1 has some interesting twists that haven't appeared in a previous DCC tourney, and ...

Yep, all the basic Psionic data is indeed SRD - only a few minor things are absent, such as some specialty creatures/races. My reservation is that psionics doesn't really feel "classic" in the sense that other fantasy tropes and adventures do. Aside from the Mind Flayer (which is not SRD) there were...

Both Crypt and Vault were just...brutal. In Vault, I've heard that some teams lost party members in the very first encounter.

Anyone else interested in giving it a whirl? If there's enough pre-Con interest, I'll try to schedule something more concrete -- otherwise, it'll be pretty casual. I'm leaning toward Saturday afternoon or evening at the moment... We'll see how things go.

The core XCrawl rulebook does not include the character creation guidelines or the player class listings (other than the new XCrawl class The Athlete). It contains new spells, equipment, feats and skills - but all the default information is still in the PHB... Bottomline -- you still need access to ...

A few of the characters have a nice phat Charisma score, and several will have ranks in Grandstanding and/or Mugging - a few may even have some special feats tailored to the crowd aspect of XCrawl... So "Crowd Control" would be represented in the PCs in that regard, but likely not as a PCs sole, lon...

What about the athlete to play up the crowd? I struggled with this, and Brendan and I discussed it... I love the Athlete, but its role and significance is easily overlooked by people not as familiar with XCrawl. My fear was people would dismiss it because it is so unlike any of the other characters...
