Barrowmaze with DCC RPG rules


I am looking to start a pbp game, exploring the Barrowmaze using the Dungeon Crawl Classics rules by Goodman Games.  I have the full rules release pdf, but all players need to get going are the Beta Quickstart rules, located here:  http://www.goodman-games.com/downloads/DCCRPGQuickStartGuide060811.pdf

Full Beta rules can be found here:  http://www.goodman-games.com/DCCRPGbeta.html

Each player begins play with 4 0-level PCs.  A random party of four can be generated here:  http://jmarrdesign.com/dcc/

You can email me the resultant pdf at dbishop at danieljbishop dot ca, and be entered into the PC Roster, or you can use the Unseen Servant die roller to post your results here.

Each character must be made using the random process as listed, including 3d6 in order and random hit points.  Dead characters are replaced at 1 level below the lowest other surviving character, to a minimum of 0.  If you are required to make 0-lvl characters as a result, you make 4.  Hopefully one will survive to 1st level.  This is a potentially brutal game!

Between forays, new players may join.  They start with 4 0-lvl characters, just as the original players did.

Best of luck, and look forward to the mayhem!

    There's a link to the Unseen Servant thread, for anyone who is interested.

  2. I can't tell you how impressed I am at this idea. Do you plan on running another expedition any time soon? After your review and just on the merit of the 0th level play mechanics, I am likely to buy the DCC hardback. I long for a tabletop game but find I'm too oldschool for most around here, and the comic store kids make me feel creepy and old. I need some fellow hacknslashers to drink beer with!

  3. The second expedition is ongoing now; I assume a third will follow. Where's "around here", if I may ask?

  4. Whew. Missed your reply. Southern Maryland. I will watch the fora closely for the next expedition
