    D&D 5E First World: Possibly One of the New D&D setting?

    Blackmoor came first and it was a big setting unto itself. Parts of it were later added into Greyhawk. And Mystara.

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    And stacking them wildly in your favor before even thinking of going into combat. DCC is definitely a high risk, high reward game.

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    What makes you think character death in the OSR-style of play doesn't impact the story? Of course it does. It's just not considered a fail state of the game as with modern games. One character dies and the player makes a new one. But, importantly, that death effects the story. It always does...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    Right. Which is why you avoid fights as much as possible, stack the odds in your favor, and flood the underground dungeon without bothering with fighting. Clean up the survivors and hope nothing aquatic moved in. This is a thread about DCC. Not B/X.

    D&D General In Secret Of The Slaver's Stockade The Pcs can rescue A Duke's Nephew, would The Duke let his daughter marry A Future King who is also A Thief?

    The answer to this and the dozen other minor variation threads is: the DM can do whatever makes sense to them and their sense of the world. NPCs can love, hate, like, dislike anything you want. They can act however you want. They can feel and think however you want. It doesn’t need to make sense...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    Only if the players are invested in the world and the NPCs. Which is nowhere near as common as often claimed. Different players have different preferences. And individuals can have different preferences. Absolutely. But it’s either a broad brush, no brush, or we spend an infinite amount of time...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    It reminds me a lot of the discussion around MHR and character creation. People complained loud and often that MHR doesn't have character creation rules. But they're objectively wrong. It does, in fact, have character creation rules...some players simply bounced off those character creation...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    Exactly. It fully embraces Appendix N Sword & Sorcery pulp fantasy. It’s not a game, generally, about selfless heroes saving the world with no expectation of reward. It’s a game of hired thugs slaughtering men and monsters for gold. Magic is dangerous and corrupts. The gods are cruel and fickle...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    Right. That’s a big part of it. Self-centered focus on me the player and my character instead of the group, the campaign, the world, or the game. “I am the star” not even “we are the stars”. The heroes are the ones who live. Make the character who survives the 0-level funnel the hero. Get...

    DCC Level 0 Character Funnel is a Bad Concept

    A whole lot of this is down to the trend of main character syndrome so dominant in modern RPGs. The player assumes they get to make the exact hero they dream about who will valiantly win against all odds and never be hurt or threatened or lose or die. DCC’s 0-level funnel is specifically...

    WotC D&D Products Delayed Including Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel

    For now. The supply chain won’t improve between now and then. Unless it’s easier due to the fewer pages and more use of card stock with the screen, slip case, and three covers.
