Re: Any chance on making some low fantasy adventures?

The Lankhmar campaign set is very faithful to Leiber's stories. So if those match what you want from your game, I'd say that boxed set is the one to go with... I agree 10%. Lahnmar is pretty much "low fantasy" from the get-go and it's a fun set of rules as well. Give it a look! I remember...

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

In general, I agree that less challenging encounters should equal less XP, but I don't correlate more PCs equals less challenging, since I will add/subtract #appearing based on #party and module recommendations.

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*

I say no.

Longswords and katanas are two different named weapons, although the katana functions as a longsword. If a luck weapon said "katana" they'd get the benefit from using a katana, but not a longsword.

Re: a question about Sailors on the Starless Sea

Those questions are best answered by yourself and your players. How much time do you have to prep? Do a gradual mix of both scenarios perhaps? Send ever increasing waves of enemies at the PC's village (like "Temple Siege" Free DCC RPG 2021 Adventure Pack) until you send the Big Guy and a v...

Re: Combining the best of Starless Sea and Savage Kings?

If only there was a way to re-cover the scratched off surfaces and let the players re-use them as if brand new.

If it were me as Judge, I'd just take them and re-purpose them as NPCs or foes, scratching off the rest of the sheets.

Re: Mighty Deeds Of Arms and other classes

While I would want my Thief, Elf & Halfling players attempt a Deed, I have to respect the decision that Deeds are the Warrior's specialty - it's their special ability, whereas the other classes have their own special abilities.

They can attempt a Deed but cause no damage if successful.

In a Genesis antediluvian world, campaign as you suggest above, treat the Lawful and some Neutral patrons as angelic beings that dispense wisdom and miracles on behalf of the Holy Trinity (still monotheist), and the rest of the Neutral and all Chaotic patrons as demons for the villains.

Good game report! It's a good thing you had an alternate village/town ready to play. Myself, I don't restrict character movement to only their village or valley as the DCC core rules suggest.
