Re: Zocchi DIce Poll

With all the talk of poor quality dice, trimming and sandpaper- I really wished DCC stuck with the "normal" RPG dice that are already easily available. Its starting to turn me off of the game. :cry: Personally, I still believe that if a game needs so much granularity as to require so many...

Re: "Adventure as 1974 intended you to."

+d16 Nicely said. DCC for me has been a breath of fresh air to one that had abandoned D&D as soon as he took on elok at 3rd ed rules.. They are good rules but I can not recognize them as D&D. DCC is the D&D that I remember plus some polish. Plenty of kinks to work out yet Goodman Games b...

Re: DCC Playtest report Richmond VA - the funnel...

Nobody died? :shock: I've never heard of such a thing. If the 1st level guys don't go to the front lines, the DM could simply rule that they don't get any XP for the adventure. That should cause them to mix it up a little bit more in the future. Ah Fin! a part of me wants to agree with you but the ...

Re: Character Improvement Options

So what about the incongruence between DCC Paper Heroes and Appendix N? Or the blacksmith who isn't strong enough to, you know, actually work as a Blacksmith? Or the precipitous decline of an Adventurer's aptitude in anything to which they can't apply a class bonus due to stat point attrition? Enou...

Re: Updated Cleric Class

..... That is a sign that your deity is NOT very happy with how many requests you made. Mathematically it seems to do well to limit spell casting. Design-wise is seems to do well in its simplicity. All three areas of the cleric (spells, lay-on-hands, and turning) can use the same success/failure me...

One thing I'd like to comment on, however, is a bit of an "I Told You So". I've been harping for a long time now that DCC should have some variant rule addressing these issues that's officially supported that appears in a sidebar or appendix or somewhere.. ... But this is stat generation ...

Yaay! Good to see another new Playtester post a result!

Please do share your groups initial character choices. I like to see what is being favored by different players. So far Wizards dominate my group but Rogues are creeping up as second. Warriors next and Clerics last presently

Re: Character Improvement Options

Well Said abk108. Yes I already was afraid of this "other side of the coin". Hey we're all assuming that DCC characters will come out as a collection of negative modifiers. I'd say the average character is admittedly a vanilla 11-10-11-10-11-10, and that there will be many with lower score...

Re: Character Improvement Options

I also like the idea that stats potentially can be increased with a "roll over current on 3d6" chance every odd- or even-level or so, especially in light of how stat-attrition is a real threat in the game. Aha, it's also discussed in this thread Ah! I thought I had seen the idea tossed ab...
