Re: Can Clerics Reverse Spells?

As always, it's up to you, and the rulebook provides some guidelines for this, but one thing I want to add for your consideration is the old D&D way of doing it, which is that for chaotic clerics (anti-clerics), some of the spells were reversed by default, and they could only learn the "evi...

Re: Wizards and Padded Armor

While a Wizard will seldom make attack rolls Wizards seldom make attack rolls? Sorry, are you asking me a question? That's usually what the little curly mark with the dot at the bottom means. (for reference: "?") Why would you say that a Wizard seldom makes attack rolls? And seriously, yo...

Where to Print a Self-Published OSR Module?

Hi all, I have an OSR module I've been working on, and I'm thinking of publishing it in digital/PDF form as well as print (basic B&W with glossy cover, no collectible gold foil or anything). Can anyone give some leads on where to get the physical modules printed and what typical costs per unit m...

Re: Wizards and Padded Armor

So correct me if I'm wrong: Under armor, it says that the check penalty applies to spell checks for Wizards, but since padded armor doesn't have a penalty, that means Wizards can wear it with no problems. Right? Correct, if there's no check to the armor, then there's no check to be applied to the s...

Re: Let's Talk About Spellburn

Of course, but my point is that the spellburn costs pretty much REQUIRE you to start each adventure right after another, or spells with (semi)-permanent effects will be cast for free. This has been a hugely painful thread to read, so maybe next time, just don't do this, but to me, the bottom line i...

I'm glad that #101, Veiled Vaults, is coming right behind as it's been WAY too long without an official, numbered DCC RPG module release IMO! I know that between COVID & other product lines, a lot else has been going on in the last few years, but the long pause between numbered DCC RPG modules h...

Re: New Judge Here Question About Old Modules

Since we're talking old (pre-DCC RPG) modules, I would love to see DCC RPG conversions of all the old material! Seems like a low-effort move that would dramatically increase the amount of DCC RPG canon, especially for those of us who aren't as into Lankhmar and the other product lines that have been...

At a quick glance (which is all I've been able to give it unfortunately), or even careful perusal of the spells section I agree with you. It does read as "see previous entry" style writing. Yeah, it usually means that at the higher dice total, you get the effects of previous, lower-level ...

I know this company produced modules for D&D3.5 some years ago and they used a "World of Aereth" setting. Are the modules for the DCC system supposed to also be set in that same world? Loosely, yes, though by no means do you need to read through the older 3.0 Aereth sourcebooks to do ...
