This is the “I walked 10 miles in the snow” argument. We can do so much better if we could let go of it.

Do you know if you need to “launch” it, or is creating it enough?

You decided to pick them up! Nice. There’s not a lot of activity about them on Twitter, but there is a Year Zero Engine Discord that’s not too much of a firehose if you have questions:

How do I get my hands on these?

Yeah, I’d say that’s on the nose. I’ve kept track of these things in various campaigns, but with Forbidden Lands it hits a sweet spot between the right amount of tracking for GMs and players and the right amount of repercussions.

I’m enjoying actually caring about encumbrance, food/water, arrows, torches, and so on. Using a resource die (a lot like Black Hack) makes this better; it’s abstract but still tracked. The willpower metacurrency will seem odd, but just give it a shot, it working well for us.

I just started playing this with my group. There’s a lot of new rules to follow so we’ve been playing slow (first session was journeying/random encounter, second was exploring an adventure site and a single combat with a monster).

If I’m in the mood or the session calls for it, this method can be a riot: 1. Roll 4d6, drop lowest. 2. Figure out who got the highest rolls. 3. Use those as your array and assign as desired. L

It’s like the Fiji version.

I was in the same boat to be honest. The OSR Discord, while full of great people, is also just too busy for me to keep up with. The DCC one is still chat, but it’s slow enough that I can check in on a weekly basis and still have a good idea of what’s going on.

Discord can be a firehose, though ’s DCC Discord is actually pretty reasonable in terms of speed, it’s got the right amount of people and a lot of recurring voices. Maybe check that out?

I wish there was a half-decent replacement. I’ve tried MeWe and I just can’t get into it for one reason or another, just a little too clunky. Reddit could work, but given its occasionally-toxic environment, most folks aren’t interested.

Let’s all have a moment of silence for Dlevyn, the 3 INT elven barrister who managed shoot an all-powerful sorceress in the eye causing 10 damage only to be disintegrated moments later.

With DCC, I like 3d6 down the line when you’re running a funnel because it all shakes out. When you start talking about a single character though, that’s when I like some of the houserules that are a bit more lenient, like swapping two stats, or LotFP’s positive modifier sum.

Your 1st blog post will be bad, but your 1000th will be great. Your 1st workout will be weak, but your 1000th will be strong. Your 1st meditation will be scattered, but your 1000th will be focused. Put in your reps.

I like For Coin & Blood’s take on this: your hit points are equal to your Constitution *score* plus your level.

I would prefer it because I can easily add the post to something like or . Plus an older liked tweet still points to the correct post.
