Fighter’s Challenge: DCC Conversion Pt. 1

Fighter’s Challenge: DCC Conversion Pt. 1 I bought a copy of the 2nd ed AD&D module HHQ 1: Fighter’s Challenge (for $2.98–win) to give Eric and I something to play when our friends were busy and it was just the two of us. For fun, we thought it would be cool to try using Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG to run it, though depending on the leathality/feasibility we may go back to the original system (which we have all the corebooks for). The stats were randomly generated, though with a little bit of filtering on my part. The rest was taken care of thanks to the “peas-o-matic” I referenced...

Free RPG Day 2012

Free RPG Day 2012 Today being my first day off since Saturday, I can finally talk about what was my second RPG day ever personally, and my first RPG day at Dragon’s Den in Poughkeepsie.

Peas-o-Matic for DCC RPG

Peas-o-Matic for DCC RPG I was thinking about creating a 0-level character generator for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, but the good mages over at Purple Sorcerer Games have already done a bang-up job. You simply choose whether you want Hard-mode or Power-mode 0-level characters and voila, you get a spiffy PDF with four characters, replete with stats, occupation, lucky roll and gear. Alternatively, you can roll up level 1 characters to get past the “Peasant Golf” style action. Additionally, the company is Kickstarting its DCC Companion App for iPad and Android tablets, which...

Why I Won’t Rewrite Your Character

Why I Won’t Rewrite Your Character Today’s article on Gnome Stew seems more than apt to describe the inner conflict I have brewing in my own campaign right now, but serves as a reminder as to why I had to let the players choose what they wanted and not force any particular character (or in this case, race) on them. Thursday begins my Pathfinder drow campaign (one long in the coming) with a motley crew of agents for House Xaniqos of Erelhei-Cinlu. Originally, I had envisioned a game of disinheritance and a power struggle between the PC’s and their erstwhile family. However, I still...
