Servants & Services

“Swords, spells and tools only get you so far! A smart delver knows when to hire some ‘elp, and never goes into a cave all by their lonesome.”

I ran the Gnole House for my Monday group last week, and despite the desperately remote location of the house, they’re planning on refurbishing the creepy old mansion for their own needs.

For this purpose, I ended up requiring to sketch up a price list for various services and servants, since obviously they’re not opting for home improvement themselves (and none of the magic users have handy access to Mending).

So, I give to you an approximate price list for services, servants and henchmen, for use in a DCC setting.

Judge’s Checksheet

“Lotsa things can ‘appen to a delver, under the mountain or in the forgotten places. Some get set on fire, some fall down ‘oles. Others come back blind, crippled, or worse!

You’d do best to stay at home boy, tendin’ the turnips an’ sloppin’ the pigs.”

I don’t use a Judge’s screen: I let the dice fall where they may, and make all rolls out in the open. But recently, I had to figure out how the DCC rules handle blindness.

After eventually finding the rulings somewhere under the warrior deeds, I figured that I’d need some assisting notes for further sessions. So I made these cheatsheets.

Some of the rulings are my own, and some are fairly directly based on official sources, or dug up from various modules. Have a gander, and use them if you find them useful! And please, suggest more stuff I could add to the set!

Additionally, you may have noticed some cool new art on the site. Joni Kesti plays in my Monday game, and illustrates the adventures of the Bitterweed Barrow Allstars every week. I am extremely eager to show these images to our readers, and super happy to share the load of content production with fresh new Knights.

Armand’s Emporium of Armor and Weapons

“The Alley of Steel is a loud place. The constant clang of the forges and the shouts of salesmen hawking their wares forms a wall of cacophony, enough to confuse anyone not used to the City.

But at a hidden dead-end stands a quiet shop, with no shingle marking the establishment. It is there for those in the know, and indeed, needs no advertisement: Armand has everything, from the curved blades of delicate steel forged by the veiled smith-eunuchs of the eastern deserts, to the crude heavy flails used by the crazed wildling hordes in the far north.

Some even say that Armand has a hidden back room of fabled items, made from mysterious materials and metals unknown to most smiths, but this might as well be a fable, for your meager take from the last dungeon certainly isn’t enough to trade for such treasures.”

For better or for worse, I like having a bunch of variety in the weapons available to my players. I find that picking a cool, signature weapon adds a nice pinch of flavour to any reaver, sneak-thief or delver of dark places. The list in the rulebook is a little limited for my taste, so I expanded it.

Additionally, there are a lot of references to various weapon materials and such in the rulebook and dungeon modules, but the mechanical implications and pricing system of this content isn’t covered all that extensively.

So, I made an extended list for use in our games, along with a price table for some materials. Everything can be found below in the PDF..
