We’re back from our extended break, and let’s start off with a big one! I love the DCC RPG Funnel, and I love the Shadow of the Demon Lord system. Let’s mix this peanut butter and chocolate together!
The Shadow of the Demon Lord Funnel
Players: Instead of creating and choosing one first level character, randomly roll a d6 (d8 with the Demon Lords Companion) four times to generate four characters. Follow character generation rules as normal for each character. Also, when a character drops to zero or fewer hit points, that character is dead! No rolls for you!
GM: Instead of running a zero-level adventure, instead run a level one adventure. Run the adventure as hard as normal, and players will drop like flies! At the end, players will most likely be left with one character each. That person gets all the experience points the would normally get putting them up to first level with a hell of a story!
