fgcon-dccA Level 2 Adventure

From out of the past comes an ancient evil to plague the present! A mystifying tower crowned by a blinding blood-red light has appeared in the forest, arriving as a never-before-seen comet burns in the sky above. Is its arrival a harbinger of terrible times ahead? Only those heroes brave enough to confront what lurks behind the inexplicable walls of the Pharos of Scales can solve the mystery of the tower’s puzzling arrival!

Rules Set: DCC RPG

    How similar is this rule set to DnD? I’m very experienced in DnD 3.5e.

      It is based mostly on D&D 3.5e, with ascending AC and Fort/Ref/Will saves. Magic is very different – you roll d20+ability mod+level and refer to a table for the effect. The differences are easy enough to explain on the fly.

        Thanks for the insight leozelig.

        I’ve applied for a spot and hope to see you in game. 🙂

    Well, we currently have enough players to make this game happen! I will post a link to the pre-generated characters soon.

      How do you want us to roll the stats?

      4xd6 drop the lowest, or should we point buy? If point buy how many points do we have?

        By the book, you roll 3d6 in order (Strength, Agility, Stamina, Personality, Luck, and Intelligence). If you don’t have the rulebook, I would recommend using a pre-generated character for this one-shot adventure. The author’s (handwritten) pregens are available here:


        Fantasy Grounds has character sheets with these characters ready to go, including several fields (e.g. weapon attacks) that you can double-click to roll.

          OK, I rolled a dwarf warrior

          STR 16
          Agility 9
          Stamina 13
          Pers 11
          Luck 7
          Intelligence 6

            Actually, you would be either a dwarf *or* a warrior in the world of DCC RPG, which borrows from the “race-as-class” concept of early editions of D&D.

            I am going to ask everyone to select a pregen character, since this is a one-shot adventure. You may claim the dwarf or the warrior if you like, sirchet.
