Re: Planar Travel...Original Ideas?

The plane of concordant opposition is the hub of the Great Cosmic Wheel, the grand planar crossroads wherein which all worlds meet. Portals to and denizens from nearly any plane can be found here, even those diametrically opposed to each other. This is possible in part due to the fact that as one a...

Re: Planar Travel...Original Ideas?

I've been on this very path since running Intrigue at the Court of Chaos . Opposed to the structured, well-defined wheel cosmology of other systems, I prefer a looser system more fitting DCC rules. I think of amorphous planes that differ by degrees, influenced inwardly by the will ruling powers and...

Journey to the Center of Aereth. Love it.

Just started Jack Vance's Dying Earth

It amazes me I grew up with the old DM's guide in the early 80's and never bothered with the suggested Appendix N reading at the back. Probably too young to appreciate it. I was reading Dragonlance novels and Conan comics back then anyways. I'm loving Dying Earth. It's well written, I kind of feel l...

Future Release Hints?

Any plans on future boxed sets, modules, etc? I really dig this game and plan to start Chained Coffin soon, most likely Purple Planet late 2017. Has the Lankhmar set already been released? I see individual products for it, but no boxed set? What else is in the works? DCC is the best! ---A minion of ...

Re: Would anyone here be interested in a Trump themed module

I enjoy RPG's and gaming in general due to the escapism. ;) Not having to think about politics/religion, especially with the last election, is something I kind of need if you catch my drift.

There's a Lovecraft / Moorecock synthesis as well as other weird fantasy influences. The higher powers are fickle bastards toward lowl...

I love the terrible reality of the cosmos, the war between Law and Chaos that is waged throughout time and space.

Just ordered my hardback. Also ordered more Shudder Mountain modules. I am so looking forward to this. I have the original PDF, and getting my mutated little mitts on this extended HB Version further solidifies my patron bond with Chaos. It's this year's Christmas present to myself. :mrgreen: :idea:

I love the Chained Coffin boxed set. It's full of awesome, very creepy background material suitable for any campaign world.
