Re: Familiars... Do the ever grow more powerful?

Interesting. I can remember familiars being a useful but vulnerable low level servant in my AD&D games. In Hackmaster 4th I recall that you could acquire whelks and petunia plants as familiars, which was a lot more useful than it sounds! :) It feels appropriate to me that that the familiar's powers ...

Re: Classic D&D Modules

I am planning to have a go at DCC#0 Legends Are Made, a fine module which I picked up recently and maybe in the future a shot at B1: In Search of the Unknown, both starting with 0 level meatgrinder characters. I am also considering B2: Keep on the Borderlands but I think that will be harder to conve...

Re: Converting 3rd edition Skills and Feats to DCC RPG

I'm surprised you're party has leveled so quickly. My campaign has been going for 1.5 years, and only one of them has made 3rd. I'm also a bit of a tough Judge. Like AQuebman, I don't restart PCs at level 0 and I am also a very easygoing DM. I generally find that players will find all kinds of inve...

Re: DCC group goes to Tegel Manor!

I have never played Tegel Manor but have always enjoyed those kinda wacky environments. I have participated in a OSR module called Shadowbrook Manor, which I have been told is similar but I gotta track down a copy of Tegel Manor for myself one of these days.
Love the write ups. Keep 'em coming!

Re: Converting 3rd edition Skills and Feats to DCC RPG

I found it to be very entertaining and enjoyed playing it a lot. I agree with reverenddak in doing ...
