Re: Athas DCC - proposed rules tweaks

hRMMM.... 1) First, if ability drain is a non-spell attack that requires no attack roll, that's pretty awesome. You could kill foes with a Light spell! Yes indeedy. And that's why people in Athas HATE HATE HATE magic users. :-) Well, one reason, anyways... 2) Hit points not ability drain, if it's E...

Athas DCC - proposed rules tweaks

Ho there, wanderers! Been a long time. I've been busy chasing the dragon Money through the dungeon Real World and it's been a hell of a slog let me assure you. Caught the tip end of his tail the other day though so I should be okay for a few moments... long enough to think about starting back up my ...

Re: ...The Save Is Made Against The Spell Check Result...

I think making a natural 20 a success is a good idea. Maybe the save dc should only ever be first check roll plus caster level plus(or minus) stat mod? Even if caster crits the roll and doubles caster level for purposes of the result. The only downside is this is extra math and it's not elegant.

Re: ...The Save Is Made Against The Spell Check Result...

I very, very rarely see saves get made on anything 15+. It's almost like maybe dropping that part of the d20 system would be helpful. Magic should be powerful and deadly sure, but it's nigh-unstoppable as is. (Ditto poisons, disease, anything requiring a save.)

Okay, so once the Thief goes up, if no screams, Hamun Ry will follow (no checks needed).

"After you, Master Thief," Hamun Ry says. "We should probably climb one at a time, just in case. Signal us if it's safe to climb up. If we hear screams, I suppose we'll know it's not."

Re: The Revelation of Mulmo PBP - WARNING SPOILERS

Hamun Ry tries to Comprehend Languages, hoping to get a good result. He does not (6 + 4 + 2 = 12). Don't have my book handy but I don't think that will allow for comprehension of animal language. If he needs a d14 check, it's 12 - 1 = 11. He mutters and puts the bird on his shoulder, if it'll sit th...

Punjar. You can drop it into any campaign.
THIS. I honestly couldn't care any less about an Aereth rewrite and would likely never use it. But a fleshed out dcc punjar would be quite nice to have.
