Re: Question about "Withdrawl," page 95

"Once a character is engaged in melee, he cannot back away without opening himself up to attack. If a character or monster withdraws from an active melee – whether to retreat, move to a new position, or attempt some action – his opponents immediately receive a single free attack." Imagine...

Re: Question about "Withdrawl," page 95

I think "Withdraw" in this instance is any movement in combat, period. It lists retreat as a act distinct from moving to a new position in combat. I'm interpreting it as similar to an attack of opportunity. Enemies move past the character more than one square, and they are technically rea...

Re: Plot holes in "The Case of the Haphazard Heist"?

OK, first off, so long as you are figuring out what has happened, and what the villains are doing, you are not railroading. Railroading is deciding what the PCs will do with what you hand them, which is not in your control (nor should it be). Holmes didn't solve all his cases, and if your PC fails t...

Re: "A cleric has access to the spells of his god"

From my understanding, Cthulhu cultists may be evil, but Cthulhu himself is simply uncaring.

Re: A few questions

In playtests, I've found elves to be humbled by armor penalties in a lovely, lovely way. I actually had a 3 hp elf stripping before going into combat so that he didn't take the armor penalty to his spellcasting. Armor + Spells may look sexy on paper, but it is challenging to pull off with a high de...

Re: Languages

An interesting take on languages can be found in Burroughs' Mars series. On Barsoom there is a single common spoken language but each city has its own written language. Not very realistic from a historical Earth standpoint, but kind of neat for a fantasy world. This get rid of the "we hit town...

This product might be adaptable for "Modern man encounters fantasy world" scenarios, from the sounds of it. That would be a very good thing!

Dead Characters

Just a quick question, esp. to those who have done more playtesting in the Beta. I really like the 0-lvl funnel, but I am curious what the design idea is for when part of a party dies (as will happen!) -- are new characters brought in at 0-lvl? Does the player make 4 nobodies, or is he intended to c...

Re: Blogs about DCC RPG

Re: Plot holes in "The Case of the Haphazard Heist"?

The idea of the scrivener is good, because robbing a treasury makes sense, and robbing a scrivener is more unusual. Some notes: (1) There will be a client who knows what was being copied. Was that client killed? If so, that is a clue, and might point toward the killer more directly. Also, a friend o...

Re: Is corruption meant to be permanent?

The best solution to this, IMHO, is that the GM include areas and means in the campaign world that can undo the effects of corruption, but which require adventuring in and of themselves. A chance to mitigate effects is fine, but that mitigation should by no means be certain, and the difficulty is se...
