Re: What would the slavers do?

I thought everyone might like to know how this situation played out. My group of 8 PC's ended up deciding to camp starting about 4pm in the bottom floor of the spire with 2 pc's on guard in rotation. 1 in the top of the spire and one just outside the spire door to keep watch. At sunset I had the gua...

Re: What would the slavers do?

Ok so hear are the tactics that I've come up with. Using the hay from the stables should be of ample supply to start one hell of a smoke fire to fill the tower. They will set this on the second floor to real smoke out the top while they wait in ambush with trip wires on the stairs between level 1 an...

Re: What would the slavers do?

The Iron Manacle has lost only 3 members the two in the gatehouse (rogue escaped) and the rogue in the tower. If I throw the IM at them full force it would consist of about 4 (War1) Slavers and 1 (Rog1) and would include Ikenvar and Melchin. That's pretty heavy with no way to retreat. That puts 7 ag...

What would the slavers do?

My group has entered the castle and cleared the gatehouse but the rogue slaver escaped and warned the others and they are on alert. Then the party cleared out the spire and are using it as a base of operations. They plan on camping in the top of the tower with the trap door bolted for protection in ...

Re: Healing and clerics

Well on the grace/luck versus injury thing..... If you based it on the to hit die roll then if the fighter needed a 12 to hit and rolled within 4 like 12-16 then it would do grace/luck damage if the foe had any grace/luck points left. Then say 17-19 was a wound as mentioned in earlier post that woul...

Re: Healing and clerics

I was thinking that since it sounds as if DCC RPG is going to have some randomness to it with the crits and fumbles etc. then if we base physical injury (actual wounds) on CON damage as some suggest then why not a table to roll off at certain levels of CON loss with each one getting worse. That way ...

Re: Healing and clerics

One thing that would help with the factor of "feeling" real as far as damage goes, would be to divide the hit point system into two categories such as Grace and Health. Grace being luck, dodges and no physical damage. While health would be physical wounds that would probably be based on your con or ...

Re: Healing and clerics

Let me throw something out that I use as a house rule in my 3.5 campaign. This effectively frees up the cleric as far as being a heal bot. They have a natural divine ability called divine presence. Divine Presence When allies touch you, or even the hem of your clothing, they are blessed with healing...

Re: Hit Points, Conditions and Non-Lethal Effects

Monte Cook did something similar in his Book of Experimental Might by dividing HP into health and grace.... I've been using this system in my 3.5 campaigns for a few years and it works out great. I have detailed how it works below: Hit Points All characters start with bonus hit points equal to their...
