Festive Patron – Saint Nicholas!

“Ho ho hoo!”

– Jolly Old St. Nicholas of Yule Mountain

Just too late for the holidays, it’s the patron we all remember growing up: jolly ole Saint Nicholas!

He is fairly unique in that none of his abilities can be used on the caster themselves and that he requires a character be generous to stay in his good graces. It should add some fun dynamics to any game that chooses to employ him.

This is the second patron I’ve written, and I hope to add a few more to the list before too long.

Season’s farewells and happy adventuring out there!

The Arcane Archivist

“Books, grimoires, fetishes… objects of lore, and power.

I sense them all, I know their power.

I must have it for my own.”

The arcane archivist is an alternative magic user class for DCC. I wrote it up based on popular demand, as my players have recently realised the value of utility wizards, Detect magic, Read magic and Comprehend languages.

The alternate mechanics are partially based on my own old home system, where arcane casting was largely tied to the power of a wizard’s spell book.

As usual, rules are below in the PDF. Enjoy!

Cheers,

The Sanctum of Space!

The inaugural post for the new year is another collaboration with the Sanctum Secorum podcast. Check out the space dwarf race in the companion volume, along with other excellent content!

The space dwarves are actually based on a really vivid dream I had a few months back. I’ll eventually work them out to a full story, but it was great fun to explore their culture and behaviour for this article. And Joni’s illustrations are damn great, the man is a wizard with inks!
