Dungeon Crawl Classics (and other OSR or inspired games)
Excellent! I'm hoping to sort of continue what Jarrett started here in Columbia, although my DM'ing skills are not nearly as competent as his were (practice makes perfect!). There are a ton of funnels out there and so many TPKs to be had.
Hey Matt404 -
You're more than welcome to participate and play! We'll probably need bodies... erm players anyway and a game like Dungeon Crawl Classics is fairly simple. Basically the adventure I will be running is called a 0-level funnel, which is a gauntlet of horror and death for the characters in the game, before they become heroic adventurers like Warriors, Clerics and Wizards. Each person that plays starts out with about 4 characters (I have a huge stack of already created characters) and it is your hope that a few live through the adventure in order to level up and become a first level character. Death can come fast and furious at times, and you might pick a character that has absolutely horrible chances of surviving (it's not uncommon to start out with several characters with 1 hit point) - but it's all pretty fun and easy to pick up. There isn't a need to worry about too many rules, as the emphasis is more on describing what you want your character to do and trying to coax the dice into making it happen.
Anyway, I'm not sure what the turnout will be just yet, but there's almost always space since DCC doesn't have the number of players that a game like Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition will have. If you're interested, stop by! I'll have pretty much everything necessary to play.
I have played some DCC funnels when Jared was in town last year. I look forward to joining your game...and TPK time as well! I will rely on your pregens instead of trying to generate my own when I don't know the "world".
