Re: Road Crew 2021 Poster: tell me why?

I think I qualify as a 'dude' and it's not what I'd rather have seen.

Re: Q: How do you handle 0 to 1st level transition?

I've run Sailors at least 8 or 9 times... with a couple of those, it felt epicly appropriate to level up as the boat approaches the little island. IIRC, I gave spellcasters 1 or 2 spells, randomly determined.

They got the rest between adventures.

Re: Q: How do you handle 0 to 1st level transition?

Many, many folks have stumbled over that exact "and they suddenly are a Wizard?" moment... The easiest solution is to frame it along the lines of: they have studied weird stuff for however long makes sense to you, and that THAT huge TRAUMATIC experience with the SUPERNATURAL (the Funnel ad...

Re: quick & dirty sense of magic types: black; elemental; enchantment; idol

For myself, I don't think there a need for hard and fast categories. I will focus when running on the individual NPCs and focus on *how* they are casting, or what trappings they use or are surrounded by. If there are 98 Wizards across the World, then there are 98 ways of accessing magical power; som...

Re: q&d sense of magic types: black; elemental; enchantment; idol

I could comment on many of your points, but the essence would be this: you're taking text which is meant to be evocative and treating it as being denotative. Just as the text in an Appendix N short story might *suggest* that someone experimenting with magic is tapping into forces bigger than they re...

Hmmm... the general contact e-mail is info@ -- if you're e-mailing a name, maybe it's not going to the right person, or that person is thinking they are being cc'd and it's not just them that's getting it, and if it's not their 'department' so to speak, they aren't replying...?

Re: Default DCC setting?

Let's review... A question was asked in a space on the forum which is designed as a starting point for new players. An answer was given, which included some framing, which seems perfectly suitable in a sub-forum designed as a starting point for new players. And maybe even more so in the context that...

Re: That dice chain

Oh yeah, multicolored is definitely another way to go! The only reason that (most of) my DCC dice are all of a color is because most of what's been sold has been one-color sets.

Re: That dice chain

I like the dice chain and bought a set of the "weird" dice. However, I have trouble telling some of the dice apart quickly. Any tips? If I'm using a set of all the same color, I still sometimes mix up the d14 and d16 -- so I just sort those out ahead of time, set them on their top numbers...

I went ahead and listed a few of my DCCs, along with the Iron Crypt of the Heretics Gen Con version on ebay, so we'll see what price it fetches. There don't seem to be any sales of it on ebay, and the only one listed is for $600. :shock: I couldn't part with any of my tournament modules, though. Th...

Re: Thief backstab

There is zero indication anywhere that Luck "changes" the face of any die. It just changes the outcome in the same way other modifiers do... If burning two Luck could turn a roll of 18 on an attack into a crit, why then not the +2 to hit from your Class making your 18 into a crit? That ans...

Yeah, that's good stuff.

I'd add that anytime the table gets excited about a roll -- whatever it's original purpose or outcome -- that's a good time to build something extra onto it.
