A New Patron For DCC By Stormlord Publishing

I saw the below on a post in the DCC RPG Rocks Facebook group. This looks like a pretty cool, and well thought out Patron. A Death Bat! Camazotz, the bat god of death, fear, and blood was shackled in the House of Bats in the Underworld, and in the centuries since, evidence of his…

DCC Tuesday Session Report 09/13/2016

SPOILERS FOR CRAWLING UNDER A BROKEN MOON ISSUE 14&15 BELOW! Tonight my players managed to get themselves off the Purple Planet by rescuing the navigator Tio Lizix (who is now played by George, and is playing him quite well as his internal monologue being external). The players made their way to a planet where George…

Local Gaming Community: Growing It

In an effort to try and get things more organized in one place I have created a Facebook group for the Reno Dungeon Crawlers Guild. This does several things for me. 1) It gives people a single spot to come check where and when the next game is. 2) It allows me to get away…

Getting Rewarded For Helping To Start A Gaming Community

Heroes Can’t Be Built

While I was looking around today on the DCC RPG Rocks Facebook group when I saw that Bruce Grossman had posted a DCC RPG Flyer with his game’s information on it. I asked if I could have the clean copy and he obliged. I have posted it below. Don’t know who the original creator is…

Thoughts On Starting A Local Gaming Community

I was introduced to Dungeon Crawl Classics on Free RPG Day 2016. I had heard of it before, but never really given it a look. After some old school gaming from the awesome GM EdOWar I realized how much I truly enjoyed old school play. Fast forward to Free RPG day this year and I…

Understanding THAC0

Thanks to this nifty chart at Random Wizard Blog in combination with the AD&D Book of Lairs I finally have a good grasp of THAC0. People have tried to explain it to me before and I just never understood. I think it was because I didn’t realize you needed 2 different charts. This should make…
