Re: Updated Thief Class

Bzzzzt. Bzzzt Bzzz..SWAT! I got the impression both from the tone of the rules and the statements Mr G has made here and in person that he really really really wanted folks to try the system out Au natral first time no house rules no tinkering nothin' Which of course makes sense if you have somethin...

Re: DCC Beta Campaign test: Portland, OR

True, but at some point you run up against the law of diminishing returns. This is one of the players 2 surviving Characters... Pat the woodcutter for example: STR 7; AGIL 5; STAM 16; PER 5; INT 5; LUCK 14. Luck applies to find/disable traps... As a DM & a player it is obvious to me that the on...

Re: Updated Thief Class

Thieves should apply their Int bonus to reading scrolls, as other ability modifiers are applied to other skills; I need to actually put that in writing. :) Yaaay! Interesting comments on ability modifiers by alignment. DCC RPG deliberately takes a path of character design that involves less "p...

Re: Class Conversions for DCC

After reading Tortogs recent post (http://www.goodman-games.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=15967&p=47374#p47374) I thought this was a better place to post an idea than take that one off topic. Non humans as classes (yes I know it has its own thread I may cross link hold on!) Seems to me tha...

Re: DCC Beta Campaign test: Portland, OR

A detailed and well thought out write up as ever Tortog! Ok two things stood out to me one trivial the other serious. If I may:- Climbing: uses strength or agility depending on the type of climbing being done: sheer surfaces (STR), natural rock wall or tree (AGIL). A climber without ropes or a climb...

Re: Updated Thief Class

I think I know where Mr G was going with the unopposed skill check business. But I too have misgivings. I can only hope that the case is proved one way or another with further Beta Testing Int as a Scroll cast bonus and stat bonus for skills however? Absolutly!! To think a slow weak thief will be th...

Re: Will we see the next updated draft?

Finally, I'd love to see using a wand be more like reading a scroll. Perhaps it has a spell built into it that can be cast "x" times, but also you still need to make a spell check to do so, like reading a scroll. Perhaps the casting would not be lost on a non-corrupting/non-misfire result...

Re: Updated Cleric Class

Please note that Joseph is of course the final arbitrator. The intention when the Cleric 2.0 was designed is that Spell Burn damage cannot be recovered via the cleric. Spell burn is a sacrifice to a power by the Wizard for a bonus. That power will resist any attempts to 'magically' heal the spell b...

* Finally, I'm playing with the "failure rates." Level 1 spells fail and are lost on a roll of 1-11. Level 2 spells used to fail and be lost on 1-13. I'm playing with level 2 spells suffering only a failure (no spell loss) on 12-13. There is currently a disincentive for wizards to cast hi...

Re: Poisons & Diseases

(Takes off Hat in sympathy) I have nothing against special diseases and poisons when they are adding to the story. Given that the early RPGs that DCC is somewhat modeled on had a poison mechanism where you made one saving throw (with modifier for poison's strength) and a failure was death, well, I t...

Re: Old School versus 4E

+d14 Agree here. If you want to make up your own cards thats great. But thats it let the decision to do that be an individuals. My over all impression of DCC is that it encourages a GM to make his her own campaign again with its own house rules. Less official rules make us DM's THINK of what makes O...

I had a player ask to play a Ranger. Basically what I told her is that she would be playing a fighter, but when "Ranger situations" came up I'd give her a bonus on die rolls. We kept the bonus vague, depending upon the situation. She had played an C&C Ranger before and asked about a f...

Hit dice are strange. Just use a straight up d8 or d10. There's no reason why this class should be AWESOME at first level in terms of survivability and then just MEH at 5th level and up.
