Re: Drow and Giant Series

The general fan guess is that since WotC did their own take on the Giants series, it's not likely to show up anytime soon as part of the OAR series... But that's just speculation.

Re: Enlarge is OP, tell me why not!!!

Another thought is, it's the player's job to entertain themselves, too. If their choices are boring to themselves, they need to explore other choices. Another option would be to run published adventures that are a level or two higher than the party. The vicissitudes of DCC are such that "super-...

Re: Enlarge is OP, tell me why not!!!

How much stick are they getting? That is, are you playing up when things go badly? Are you making Spellburn really cost what it should? As a con rep, I've heard a lot of stories about Wizard's running amok, but when we drill in, about half of those complaints are that they are just re-setting Spellb...

Re: Class/Alignment combo mechanics ?.

Also, characters are very much "front loaded" and have their abilities from Level 1. Gaining more spells for spellcasters is something that happens as you level up, and general improvements happen as everyone levels up, but you've got everything going on from the get-go. Also also, I too a...

Re: Spellcasting services

For me, magic is not something that's traded on the Dow Jones. It's spooky and deadly and most people are afraid of it.... So IF the party is going to seek out a caster for some kind of aid, something that's beyond their own resources, that's a sub-plot or almost a side-campaign in itself to even fi...

Re: Awarding XP

If you're running the published adventures, then basically each keyed area would constitute an encounter. So Portal Under the Stars in the back of the rulebook would have 9 encounters. Area 9 is a treasure vault and likely poses no threat, no loss of resources (rather an uptick in resources!), etc. ...

Re: webstore shipping question

It's really more of an info@ type of question, since maybe you're experiencing a glitch that needs to be addressed by the tech team... But when I go to the cart and put in Road Crew stickers, there is an option to select Road Crew Swag as a shipping option, which zeroes out the cost. If you're not s...

The 5e maps that cover the original adventure areas are new but hew pretty darn closely to the originals. I think it was in S3 that they caught a design mistake where a stairway on one level didn't actually line up to the lower level, and that was corrected... There is new material, which have maps ...

Re: Patron Bond

By the rules, there's nothing stopping you from casting it multiple times on yourself -- keeping in mind that it is a ritual that takes a week or more, in-game. Looking at the narrative side, well, if you have employees do you enjoy them constantly hitting you up for a raise each and every pay day? ...

Re: Patron Bond

Well, the spell is the abstraction of the mortal and the Patron forming their relationship over the course of (presumably) a very intense week or more for the mortal... There wouldn't be a need to cast it twice on oneself -- but arguably, the mortal could want to re-negotiate the terms of the deal, ...

Because of the license for these books from Wizards of the Coast, Goodman cannot provide digital assets of any kind for anything from the books.

Wizards do offer most of the original modules for purchase in PDF.
