Re: Earn Luck points

I also allow them to permanantly burn a point of luck for a bigger luck bonus than they would get for burning luck temporarily. Good idea, thank you. And what kind of bonuses do you allow them ? How many extra points does a burnt point equal ? There might be other effects that could be generated by...

House Rule: more than one Action Dice rolled to cast a single spell

I've been thinking about a house rule. Letting spell-casting classes roll more than one Action Dice and combining the results to cast a single spell. For example. A level 5 wizard has 1d20 + 1d14 for it's Action Dice. This house rule would let the wizard cast.. say... "Magic Missile" by ro...

Re: Earn Luck points

I don't think its specifically addressed in the rule book. I do let thief/halfling gain higher base luck scores in my games. I also allow them to permanantly burn a point of luck for a bigger luck bonus than they would get for burning luck temporarily.

I'd imagine yes, but there might be bigger communities than here on this forum? I mean lets face it, there isn't exactly a lot of activity on here. G+ was very active for DCC, and while not exactly "the" place to go, the DCC RPG subreddit is also more active than here, but there's probably...

Heavy Metal RPG Podcast

The stars keep their nightly procession, moving towards their cosmic destiny. Blacker than night, the deafening silence of DCC RPG Podcasts became unbearable to the gods who slumber, their dreams tormented by the void of content. Seeds were planted in the minds of those touched by fate, and a new po...

Re: New stuff from Heavy Metal Adventures

I have a couple adventures I'm working on right now. It's just difficult to balance this company with my 40-50 hour job and being a father and husband. I am primarily interested in making the adventuring experience more fun with ways to streamline the gameplay experience or provide classes/rules tha...

Re: On the Subject of XP and multiple characters in DCC

I've been toying with the idea of XP dice per encounter myself, maybe like.. 1d6 per encounter instead of the "per book" 0-4 XP. Different experiences/events have different effects on what people take and learn from them. But yeah, the way DCC is written I would still give the same XP per ...

Re: Will we see more TSR Classics instead of Judge's Guild?

My own personal willingness to buy the OAR series so far has been if its just 1 book, or multiple books, I'm personally less interested in the ones where its more than one book.

There is one advantage, I personally would not purchase any WoTC adventures at this time in my life, but I would still purchase GG adventures, and I'm sure many other people are like this. Of course, if GG wants to try and sell some stuff to people who might mainly buy WoTC but also consider other p...

Growing up I never even knew about JG. I'm willing to give them a look over, but I don't have like.. an excitement of them being republished like some people do. I can see why some people would want them to be published though so I think its alright. Ultimately the sales on these will determine if t...

Re: Death Checks - Halflings and Thieves

I run it that a halfling can burn luck to add or subtract 2 points from any dice they roll for their character, 1 point for dice rolled by other characters.
And that the thief luck die can be rolled to add or subtract from any dice rolled by the thief.

Re: New to OSR and DCC. Changes to the in-game religion system for duty and freedom of conscience.

Re-reading your specific OP. I think instead of having clerics worship different gods, you can of course let them all worship the same god, but maybe they represent different sects of the religion or aspects of that god, or have patron saints that they are clerics of under the umbrella of that god. ...

Re: Frozen In Time Q *Minor Spoiler*

This may be a disappointment, but it could also be a good thing, for instance, an unlucky warrior who happened to pick longsword for their "unlucky" weapon would thus not be penalized for using the Katana.

Re: New to OSR and DCC. Changes to the in-game religion system for duty and freedom of conscience.

I think at this point if any further discussion is to be had, it should be around the use of religion/gods in the context of the game. I personally kind of agree with a general idea that something similar to the catholic "patron saint" idea would be more applicable to a campaign world that...
