LotFP Discussion  - 
 
Fun insight on Hammers of the Gods from Raggi:
"Trivia: The dwarfs that built this dungeon in this adventure are the same dwarfs from No Dignity in Death: The Three Brides (released the previous year), and in fact this dungeon was found in the mountains outside Pembrooktonshire in my home campaign. The history as revealed in the adventure's library directly ties in to one of the dungeons found in Better Than Any Man, linking the classic fantasy roots of LotFP with the historical focus of my current work. (Weird New World presented bad elves, Hammers here focuses on dwarfs, and what was supposed to be the bad halfling thing got folded into Better Than Any Man, with new inhabitants in the old halfling lair.)"

My gaming is limited to online play on a virtual table, and finding DCC RPG games has not been easy.

Session Reports  - 
 
Session report: Ape baby returned

XP: 1! Yes, we have no bananas
But those that caroused gained 1XP per level

Reminder: I only want player to have one leveled character after any funnels are finished.

Reminder: You have two henchmen. Remind me next time you fight!

Reminder: You have a duck and armor. That'll come up whenever you try to sneak.

Treasure: Hobo gear

Mysteries: Where dem ape men?
Why'd that hobo attack us? What is this brand on his quivering dead grey flesh?

Religion: Holy crap I am proud of all the statue worship.

I still think something different happened with the notification this time. It was the only time it has happened where I had no way of seeing the hangout for some reason. Fluke I say.

Yeah it is really unfortunate that Google+ always shows the event in the creator's time zone on mobile browsers instead of in the viewer's time zone. For what it's worth, it should show the right time for the event if you answer yes/maybe to the invite and look at your calendar.

I'd like everyone to make a comment or message to me in the next few days about how they feel and what their plan is for next Monday.

Lack of communication this morning makes me feel like I need to reach out to you with requests for it.

If anyone thinks they have to sit out a session, or can't commit to a weekly game at a set time, it's only polite to let me know. I try to treat y'all respectfully, and I hope you can be decent enough to do the same.

I mean, even if I do make an event, some people don't bother to click what their attendance status is. They've always been poor gauges for attendance, and they are intrusive. WIth the Internet at our fingertips, there is not much excuse not to send me some sign or respond to a text Hangout when you notice one.

If I'm a bad judge, please send me a PM about all my shortcomings so I can learn something. I'm always willing to be reflective. I'd like to think I've demonstrated that when people call me out for certain rulings. If your desire is to play only GG modules, I'm not your guy. I believe in the DIY ethos. You might think me selfish for using our sessions as playtests for things, but it really is a sandbox world and your PCs are free to go where you want.

As for new players, in the future I will do my best to remind them that this is a weekly game and I'm looking for people who think they could commit to such if they find my sessions fun.

Sorry about yesterday. I misinterpreted the lack of an invite to mean that there was no game this week and made other plans. I will be available for next week.

Judge reports (what happened today?)  - 
 
Sesh report: Gonna have a montage

XP: 4 total
1 for wolf friendshipality
3 for spriggan détente
plus whatever you got from montage bonuses
plus 1 XP for anyone in the bar fight.

Quests:
Get that druid gold
Get our purple herbal fix (2 addicted PCs)
Get better at walking with a peg-leg
Finally finish the funnel dungeon should you so desire (West of the forest)

Rumors:
Quelong is to the East. A generaless has invited you to visit sometime
Some cities are to the north and south of Helix if you follow the roads
Some kind of mysterious adventure site is available for the bold to the north on said road. Look for Farquir.
There is premium herb to be found in the ruins of the Shmisdanis druish site. Barbarians never got our treasure either, man.

Rules:
To do a montage, choose a method (party, sacrifice, train, research) and add a relevant mod to a d20 roll. DC 5 to avoid bad stuff. DC 15 to get a good thing or a goal you had in mind (sometimes the DC is higher). Keep in mind it takes time. If you aren't leveling, you need to spend treasure. All the rules:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/19g0wnS_xf70B9EC357GF6eQMk4QMq9Sehio0XmqQh1g/edit

If you have no gold, you can still try to do things to get better at stuff. If you ask around, I'll tell you where to go to exchange services for training, etc. 

Getting cash for treasure is a bit hard in villages. Cities and bergs have much more liquid economies. I think that's the term. 
Drive
DCC B Montaging dccbHow to have a Montage! The rationale: You learn very little from killing a monster. You learn a lot from reflection, drills, training, and reminiscing. DCCRPG has no Wisdom stat. No, your wisdom is using what you've learned to get better at surviving. It is a meta-stat. So you spend some time. S

Does anyone know who is in charge of the DCC character sheets on roll20? I'd like to ask them to consider the option of adding beta rule thief abilities to it. (the percentile rules from the DCC beta playtest)

I would recommend having increases every other level, and have ability scores apply as per more modern rules. If the latter is too labor-intensive,  you could skip it...
