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 Gnole House (from the DCC RPG Quick Start PDF, available here) 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 needing 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.

Cheers,

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! Continue reading “Judge’s Checksheet”

Carousing Table – Wizard

Here you can find the third and penultimate of my carousing tables for DCC RPG. I made this one for Wizards, Elves and possible other arcane spellcasters…as with the Thief Carousing Table and Cleric Carousing Table, the entries represent not so much “pure” carousing as the General Carousing Table, but rather a mixture of thaumaturgic drinking and down-time arcane studies for the more-or-less adept characters of the wand-and-pointy-hat persuasion.

Carousing Table – Cleric

Here you can find the second of my carousing tables for DCC RPG. I made this one for Clerics and their ilk…the entries represent not so much “pure” carousing as the General Carousing Table, but rather a mixture of holier-than-thou drinking and (holy) divers down-time sacred endeavours for the more-or-less faithful characters of the cloth.

Carousing Table – Warrior/general

Here you can find the first of my carousing tables for DCC RPG. I made this one for Warriors, Dwarves & suchlike and also “general” if PCs of other classes do not, for some reason, wish to roll on their own tables.  I have drawn somewhat heavily from Balthazar and Jeff Rient for them, but rewrote most of the entries to better fit the hypothetical ‘general’ DCC campaign without reference to non-included tables or a specific campaign setting, whilst striving to feature some of the Dark Master’s flavour from the rulebook.
