Great stories, Meadhelm, thanks for coming by to post them. Keep it up! (I've fallen horribly behind on my road reports.)

Re: Patronized Patronees?

DCC Lankhmar uses "Servant" for someone who's bonded through Patron Bond, and "Agent" for someone who has a less-binding arrangement with a Patron.

Re: Running a campaign

Must've missed this thread. Yep, it's pretty quiet here but steady (not to detract from the forum, but there's also the GG Discord server).

Re: core book (images of women) really bad for me. Don't want players to lose their characters. Ideas?

You could take the PDF version of the book and get an editor/viewer that either allows you to toggle images off or delete images from the document. Won't be hardcopy but it'll quickly give you the rules without any art.

Re: Session Report of Violence for Votishal (DCCL#4) pt. 1

Terry, thanks for the great session reports! It was good to read especially coming from the author of the module. This one's on the list for my Lankhmar group for sure, though I have a few other modules to run them through first.

Re: PDFs

Newer modules have codes in them for DriveThruRPG. Otherwise, see this post for how to request PDFs, though it's not clear if they're available for new purchases of old material that don't have a code:

Welcome to DCC! Yes, it is definitely possible, and enjoyable! Though I haven't run DCC with only one, I have run MCC with one player and it ran quite well.

Re: keeping character generation session fun on Zoom

If you follow the rules as written there's no opportunity to number crunch: roll 3d6, in order, no substitutions, you get what you get. Realize that doing that is absolutely no different than using an online random generator. The tradeoff is fun in rolling dice and looking up the result in charts ve...

Re: keeping character generation session fun on Zoom

Personally I don't get much satisfaction out of a session zero. I'd rather spend my game time gaming, especially if the group can't get together very often. Also, I think in DCC session zero is the funnel. DCC is about developing your character by doing, not by dreaming up and writing in-depth backs...

Re: Do you add luck to spellcasting?

I had always thought Luck didn't apply to spellcasting, as spellcasters already have Spellburn, but then I played in a few games run by Goodman Judges and they allowed Luck for spellchecks. I thought I had read somewhere that it was a typo but can't find it. Maybe check the errata? Is there an errat...
