Re: super secret project/gary con

i would disagree about lankhmar magic being ritualistic. for example, mouser slays the duke during torture session in the unholy grail. also, hristomilo obviously casts choking cloud and animal summoning :p Yeah well I suppose it depends on what's your definition of "ritual." To me a ritual is a sp...

Re: super secret project/gary con

I think it may be a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" thing, depending upon how different the rules turn out to be. If you put the new rules into a full-out rulebook, folks will complain about having to re-buy the rules. If you make a boxed set with only the rules changes in it, folks will co...

Re: super secret project/gary con

That's very cool! I am not playing DCC, but I might give it a try again with Lankhmar.
Peginc has also got the rights to Lankhmar for Savage Worlds.

Re: Next Printing/Animate Dead

Hello, Has the list of changes for the next printing of the DCC core rulebook been finalized? If not, I'd like to make suggestion for a minor change. I think it would be a good idea to add the cleric spell "Animate Dead" to the table of wizard spells on page 127. It should have an asterisk to indic...

Re: Stomp the typo / Errata & FAQ

But there are typos and there are typos. So I was gob-smacked to read rabindranath72's praising of Mongoose Publishing. The typos produced by Mongoose in ALL of their publications, kick you in the eye, usually within the first page. They even proudly provide preview copies of their books which cont...

To be honest I feel ripped off. That's a pretty large list of errata, whole blocks of text missing, no index, and a 2nd printing almost out to fix all of it.

Re: Known Worlds anyone?

When I am going to run DCC next, I am using the Basic D&D module B10, Night's Dark Terror. It describes the central part of the Grand Duchy of Karameikos, so it's both setting and campaign information. One of the best D&D modules for every edition of D&D.

Re: DCC and AD&D

If I manage to put together a group, I will choose the B10 module, Night's Dark Terror, as a setting AND campaign book for DCC. The "feel" is very close to DCC, and the setting is quite small and contained with lots of stuff going on behind the scenes.

Yup. That's "proper" English. Dwarves is a "Tolkien invention" when referring to the race in his setting. In fact, Warhammer FRP (a Very English RPG) has always used "dwarfs."

Re: Stomp the typo!

Some other points needing clarification/correction 1) Mounted Combat.

But there is no...

RADColin, are those errata "official"?

Re: Gary Gygax wrote my gaming manifesto back in 1975.

The evolution from "GM knows all" to "player knows all" is an interesting one in the development newer editions of D&D, and I'll confess that once the players know too much I think the magic goes out of the game. It no longer becomes a battle against the unknown, but a challenge to defeat the known...

Re: Gary Gygax wrote my gaming manifesto back in 1975.

Considering the later AD&D and subsequent games he wrote, I wonder how much Gary changed his mind, or simply realised that the number of players interested in a more "codified" approach to games was the largest majority. Myself, I don't like having to consistently come up with new rules and new crit...

Re: Stomp the typo!

Regarding perception type checks, this is also based on the specific situation. To me, a passive Listen or even Spot check ought to be based on Luck, but actively searching or trying to hear something is better left to Intelligence. DCC skills are supposed to be pretty loose, so if you as a judge t...

Possible errata and typo: why on Earth would Listening be based on Luck, whereas Searching and Spotting is based on Intelligence?! Luck seems to be quite prone to go down and up, would this mean that a character becomes deaf or improve his skill at listening? Even admitting that Listening is mostly ...
