Critical Successes and Fumbles

Very quick question: when rolling action dice, is the lowest number always a fumble (1) and the highest a success (14, 16, 20 etc)?

The beta rules say a natural 20 is always a success, but mentions nothing of the other ployhedrals.

I'm tempted to say yes.

Re: DCC is DDNext

We will never see old school art in D&D again. WotC is marketing to a generation that's grown up on magic cards illustrated on a computer. Pathfinder is marketing to a generation fed up with WotC.

Re: What do you have in minds for your players?

I'm getting there. I just had this idea like three seconds ago. All I know is that the Wizard is using the worm (who is very much still alive) as protection from the elements outside. Yes, it's big enough to fit a whole town inside (and many dungeons).

Re: What do you have in minds for your players?

I just had an explosion of an idea for a campaign. Basically, the players are born in the belly of some horrid beast, like a Purple Worm. They toil their lives away nourishing worm's organs by hunting the parasites in its intestines, harvesting the flora growing on the walls, and through blood sacri...

Re: Zocchi Dice Buyer's Guide

They do not. I LOVE the the look of the opaque sets. Gem dice are not really my thing, so I tried to match them as close as possible.

No D30 yet. I also think matching the topaz to the orange will do nice...

Re: Long-Term DCC Play

I'm not sure I understand this complaint. Is it because there is a real chance of death in a campaign? Nobody likes losing a character to a bad dice roll, but if there is no risk then why even bother? Sometimes you succeed and sometimes you fail. More importantly, how is finishing a campaign any dif...

Re: DCC is DDNext

We don't need to turn this into an edition wars thread, since, from the looks of it, we're all converts or soon to be.

That being said, the DCC RPG does seem like it's beating WotC to the punch. All that means is we get to have our fun sooner than later.

Re: Zocchi Dice Buyer's Guide

Pretty much anything cast from a mold that you'd like to apply pigment to needs to be washed. Miniatures, dice, sculptures, etc.

That's a great idea!

The meteor in my game is actually a planar spaceship type thing. The dungeon is going to be the wreckage.

Re: What do you have in minds for your players?

Meteor crash...hmm For some reason I can now picture a load of pitchfork wielding villagers fighting giants killer bugs like in the film Starship Troopers. Gruesome. :D Yeah, my plan is to have the players roll 4 0-levels apiece. They are the only ones left in the village. For some reason, all of m...

Re: What do you have in minds for your players?

DCC RPG isn't going to be my main system for a while. We just started Burning Wheel and will probably play that through the summer. However, I know my group is interested in doing some dungeons crawls in between, because our BW campaign is all RP, for the most part. The first 0-level adventure I hav...

Re: Music of DCC

Note Joe's strange metal phobia. The closest he comes to Zeppelin is Rush . I'm all for Moody Blues though for some reason. In the past I've intentionally played Cradle of Filth and Slayer to throw off Mr. Goodman's board games mind. It is often my job to represent Chaos and/or Neutrality when Joe ...

Re: The pre-order shipments have left the printer!

I own the core three books of Pathfinder. I didn't see the point in picking up the box, honestly. I just finished running an 8 month long campaign. By the end of it, the players were pretty much gods (level 12). They killed an Ancient Black Dragon in five rounds. Right now, I'm running the Burning W...

Re: The pre-order shipments have left the printer!

I just pre-ordered this in the hopes that I get it before it drops later next month. I even splurged on the limited edition copy. Seriously, so pumped for it. Pathfinder left me with a headache and didn't scratch the gaming itch I reach for when I want to run my party through underground mazes full ...
