Re: Action Dice (how do they work?)

I was juts thinking about these questions. It seems like some monsters show Bite or claw (griffin) and others say bite and claw (manticore.) Both have 2d20 action dice. In both cases the bite does more damage. If a monster could bite twice with it's two action dice that would be most efficient option.

Using spells from other books?

I'm working on a book of monsters and other things for DCC. One of the monsters I'm working on would like to cast Disguise Self. There is no Disguise Self but there is Altered Visage from the adventure Emirikol was Framed. Can I use this?

What makes a good stat block?

I just finished a book of 5e monsters. I want to do a OSR/DCC version. 5e has a pretty well established stat block format. OSR and DCC use a similar sort of dense paragraph for a stat block. I appreciate the brevity but I'm not a fan of this style. I'm looking for opinions on what you think a good s...

Thief cast spell from scroll intelligence modifier?

Page 36 says a thief does NOT add intelligence or personality modifiers to DC check for casting spells from scrolls. While table 1-9 on page 38 has a footnote says a thief's intelligence modifier modifies checks for this skill?

Seems like it's not too much of an advantage to allow the the bonus.

The rules say: a cleric can use his action die for attacks or spell checks. Is this a permanent choice made at first level? Sounds like it.

What's the save DC for spells? I couldn't seem to find this in the rules PDF. I'm guessing it's something like 10 + spell level + Int modifier.

Ruminations on spells

Since the spell roll is based on level the spell success gets higher for each level a character attains. This makes me think that spells themselves don't need levels. Higher level caster will get more out of a spell usually. Here's a thought on a generic spell to sumon fire. This could be an any lev...

NPCS class

How would you recommend handling NPCS classes? I'm working on an adventure which has many NPCs. With a wide range of occupations. I don't exactly want to make these 0 level.

I suppose I can chose the closest equivalent class. Which works better for some cases than others.

Re: Why differing experience advancement

I guess I feel that uneven XP scales say that the classes are not balanced. Meaning at higher levels you'd run a game and say that it's a 5th level game for Fighters but 6th level for thieves. Which seems a bit odd. Back in the day I never paid attention to this. I feel then there wasn't any real th...
