  1. Has anyone played Dungeon Crawl Classics? I picked it up last week because it looked neat. Does anyone have an opinion that they'd like to share about the system? I personally think their character creation method is VERY interesting. Make 15 completely random level 0 characters and send them into a dungeon. You play whoever survives. One thing I am not sure I like is the idea of characters and race being one and the same. I know that is how they did it in OD&D but the race/class combinations in D&D is something I really enjoy.
  2. Whipol’s Temporary Replacement 1st level Conjuration Casting Time: 1 Bonus Action Range: 30ft Components: V, S, M (something that used to belong to the target) Duration: 1 Round Classes: Wizard (for now) A puff of white smoke explodes beneath you as you and a willing ally in range switch positions until the beginning of your next turn. Those affected by the spell return to their position right before the spell was cast. Here's what I came up with after talking to some friends about it.
  3. This is the spell I have so far. I have no idea what level to make this spell and even then I think it will need tweaking. I think it would be a niche spell that could be very useful in certain situations. Whipol’s Temporary Replacement N level Abjuration Casting Time: 1 Action Range: 30ft Components: V, S, M (something that used to belong to the target) Duration: 1 Round Classes: Wizard (for now) A puff of white smoke explodes beneath you as you and a willing ally in range switch positions until the end of your next turn. Those affected by the spell return to their position right before the spell was cast. At higher levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of n level or higher, the duration of the spell increases one round for each slot level above n.
  4. How would the system you propose here check the growth of factionalism? What's to prevent one stronger commune or faction of communes from bullying their weaker neighbors into doing things that are against their interests? How would this system mediate disputes between communes? It seems that in order for this anarcho-communism system to work, members must trust other members to put needs of the whole above the wants of the individual. Also, everyone say hi to Gary our NSA agent. Hi Gary! (I know this is On Topic and there is not supposed to be any trolling but that one was too easy)
  5. If anyone has anyone has any requests for flyovers, please comment below. I'm looking for all sorts of interesting places to visit.
  6. I took an aerial tour of one of my favorite cities, Charleston, SC. I wanted to share some of the highlights using screenshots. MS Fight Sim isn't perfect and you'll see the graphic bugs, but you can get the general idea of how beautiful the city and the surrounding area is. This is the coast a couple miles north of Charleston. This is Sullivan's Island and Fort Moultrie. Fort Moultrie is where South Carolina gets its state tree, the Palmetto Tree. It is said that during the first invasion of Charleston, during the American Revolution, the British cannonballs bounced off of the wooden palisade built of Palmetto logs. The British withdrew after seeing that they could not take the fort and harbor. Over the years it was upgraded to be a stronger coastal fortification, but now it is a wonderful landmark to visit. This is Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the American Civil War was fired. The museum inside is small but very informative and worth the tour. At the bottom of the picture you can see a slight bug where the ferry boat is a little messed up. This is a view of Charleston Harbor, Patriots Point, and the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. In the background the left river is the Cooper River and the right is the Wando River. The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge is home to the Cooper River Bridge Run, a 10K race that goes through parts of Charleston and finishes after racing over the bridge. Patriots Point is a naval museum and his home to the USS YORKTOWN (CV-10), destroyer USS LAFFEY (DD-724), and the diesel submarine USS CLAMAGORE (SS-343). There is also a naval aircraft museum on the USS Yorktown, a replica of a Vietnam War fire base, and a Medal of Honor Exhibit. If you ever find yourself in Charleston SC, be sure to visit Fleet Landing Restaurant and Bar. It is the white building on the water. You can enjoy seaside dining and excellent coastal Carolina cooking. I'm a little disappointed with how MS Flight Sim rendered this part of Charleston, but you make due with what you have. Battery Park, located in the trees on the corner of the land, is full of awesome gazebos, statues, and old decommissioned cannons (that's where the name comes from). The park is surrounded by water and beautiful historical buildings and it is a must see for any tourist sightseeing trip. This final picture is taken above the wetlands near John's Island. The best oysters are found here and a lot of restaurants hire people to crawl through the mud in boats to find the freshest oysters.
  7. Hello MCAL! Effective week of 8/23 - 8/29: As per the survey results, if your character is not level 5, go ahead and level up to 5. You will gain all the class abilities, feats (if applicable), and spells as a 5th level. You will not gain money, magic items, or downtime that you would gain from playing the game. Don't worry, you will gain these items by playing!
  8. Hello MCAL, I'm taking this week off to rest and get back to where I need to be mentally. Next week, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming. Other DMs will still do their thing. If anyone would like DM a one shot, let me know by commenting below or messaging me on discord. Thank you in advance
  9. Magic items will need to be found by playing. It won't really take too long to find one.
  10. Everyone here, go ahead and plan to show up. I want to be sure that everyone can get a chance to play.
  11. As we continue playing through this adventure, I have seen some interest from others that might want to join fresh. As of right now if a new player joins, they'd join at 1st level. I am taking a poll to see if players would be opposed to having new players joining make characters at higher levels and inactive players bumped up in levels. This is only levels and new players will have to earn loot, and magic items.
