Re: paper quality

With the quality of the printing and binding, the page count, the amount of art, the mechanics and the whole tone of the game, I'm even more convinced this will be an instant rpg classic (just as the name suggests).

Re: Updated forum structure

Where do we see conversion notes fitting in? Although DCC RPG will be supported by purpose-written modules, there will be many who would like to convert past D&D modules or just convert some favourite critters, etc. Guidance, examples, fully worked out adventures, etc.; Should they have their ow...

Re: Any word on the status of the funky dice sets?

Even before the beta was released I purchased a set of funkies in the UK. It cost me the price of the DDC RPG book itself :shock: . I'm OK with that as my means allows for such eccentric purchases, but many, many others will not swallow the extra cost AND extra hassle of hunting down a source for th...

Re: What adventures will be available when core book release

480 pages! That US$4 international shipping offer is going to ruin your business!

Fab news for us however. Sounds like lots of meat for all aspects (rules, art, flavour). I predict an instant classic RPG.

Re: What adventures will be available when core book release

It will be good news to many that the Free RPG Day modules are included in the core rule book. However, not trying to look a gift horse in the mouth, I personally prefer my rule books to not have adventures in them. There are issues with players getting hold of the book and seeing the adventure, but...

I know it's only a few dollars over at rpgnow and I bought it but at least everyone would have something before the other 0 level stuff becomes available? For some reason, I think that was their plan. I'm su...

Re: Stop the press!

I'd stop the presses just as I was getting ready to e-mail the final version to the printers. I'd then send it out again to a group of good fresh eyes for one more week to look for typos (I volunteer!). Only then would I pull the trigger on it. This is because I hate typos with a vengeance. However,...

Re: DCC preorder : international shipping ?

That's a very generous offer Joseph and much appreciated. To be fair to Leisure Games, I'll wait for their reply just in case they can match it (which would allow me to support a bricks and mortar shop). However, I suspect your deal will be the winner.

Now I'm off to spread the word.

Excellent. You've introduced me to the Internet meme of Leeroy Jenkins.

I hope some of those who played there will write up their impressions of the system as it currently stands (unless you were DDXP NDAing them, that is).

Re: DCC's Implied Setting

Firstly, I think some of the lethality will have been ironed out in the released version of the rules (for instance, I believe the frequency of magic-induced corruption has been decreased). Never the less, it is likely to remain quite an edgy system, thus you are correct that a D&D mentality (es...

Re: DCC and 5e D&D

What if, for example, something that used to give you a bonus or a penalty instead modified the dice you roll? A bonus to your attack roll might be the ability to roll ...
