Daily Punch 10-21-20 Disrupt Balance cantrip for DnD 5e

Time to keep rolling with this spell into DnD 5e

Disrupt Blance

transmutation cantrip

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 60 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 round

You alter the subtle balances the keep the creature moving causing chaos in essence of the target. Choose a creature in range to makes a Constitution saving throw. On a failure the creature takes 1d6 acid damage. At the start of the creatures next turn, it must succeed at another Constitution saving throw or take the same damage again.

This spell’s damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 5th level (2d6), 11th level (3d6), and 17th level (4d6).

Thoughts? Does the second saving throw prevent the damage from being too high for a cantrip?

Ring Side Report-RPG Review of Sinking the Stercorarius, The Salty Funnel 0 Level Adventure

Product– Sinking the Stercorarius, The Salty Funnel 0 Level Adventure

System- DCC RPG

Producer– 2 Old Guys Games

Price– $10.00 here https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/318718/Sinking-the-Stercorarius-The-Salty-Funnel-0-Level-Adventure?affiliate_id=658618

TL; DR–  Another great funnel, but now at sea!  93%

Basics– SOMETHING TOUCHED MY LEG!  Your band of rag tag….honestly level zero losers has to survive a ship flooding but wait!  There is a mysterious island on the horizon.  What could be there?  Time for another level zero funnel!  No spoilers for the fun secrets of why the ship sank or what’s to be found on the island in this review.

Mechanics or Crunch-I love the crunch of the DCC level zero.  Lots of death whittles characters away until you get a character with its mettle tested.  This adventure is no exception as characters die on ship, in the water, and on the mysterious island.  Not only that; there is a ton of new content, from crazy weapons to new toys for the players and Judge.  This adventure has a ton of new material that any DCC fan will love. 5/5

Theme or Fluff-This story is a fun one, but has a bit of trouble with the final touchdown.  The story is great up to the point of why you explore the island.  The basics are to get off the ship and survive.  From there the adventure is basically up to the GM.  The players are not given a goal aside from what the Judge gives them.  The adventure gives you tools to make it happen, but it’s up to you.  The judge given free reign isn’t bad, but I would like a bit more direction for the judge.   4.5/5

Execution–  PDF?  YEP!  Hyperlinked? Yes! This is solidly DCC.  The art, the layout, and the text are all great DCC standards.  This is exactly what I want from a DCC module.  My one complaint is I wish this would be the retail price.  I did the kickstarter for $10 which came with the extra materials.  This doesn’t come with the extra stuff, so the price is a tad high for what you get.  Overall, a solidly produced adventure for DCC RPG.    4.5/5

Summary-Yar!  Time for a funnel at sea!  I like this funnel.  There are never enough funnels, so more is always better.  This stands out by providing a lot of fun toys for the Judge and players to have after the adventure as well as a fun location to play in.  It’s a bit pricey for what you get and it is a tad open ended without a clear goal for me, but those small things aside, it’s a great adventure.  If you need a funnel that your players have not seen, this is a solid new adventure they will enjoy.  93%

Daily Punch 10-19-20 Disrupt Balance spell for Shadowrun 6e

How about more love for Shadowrun?

Disrupt Balance
RANGE TYPE DURATION DV   DAMAGE
LOS            M        I             5         SPECIAL
Life is balance, and with just a simple push you can destroy it plunging a creature’s internal chemistry into chaos.  Roll Sorcery + Magic vs. Willpower +Body.  The target takes chemical elemental damage required to the net hits and has its body is reduced by half the net hits.  This counts as a corroded for effects that remove damage and effects and a target will only have its body reduced by the arrest effect of disrupt balance, not the cumulative effect of multiple castings. This damage to body is repaired normally over time or via magic.

Daily Punch 10-12-20 Elf and Halfling racial template for Star Crawl

How about some more racial templates for star crawl?

Elf: Long lived, graceful, and aloof, elves have lived long enough for some of the oldest of them to see elves go from living in forest homes to living among the stars. The other races think them haughty, but honestly you deserve to be better then the rest as you are just better.
Stat Adjustments: Stamina -1, Intelligence +2, Agility +1
Special Abilities: Long-lived(Elves live up to 500 years), Magical ( choose one level one wizard spell that you cast as a wizard of your level)

Halfling: Adorable and short, halflings are the vagabonds of humanity. These small explorers took to the skies like fish to water as they drive space caravans across the stars.
Stat Adjustments: Stamina -1, Ability +2, Personality +1
Special Abilities: Lucky( when you spent a point of luck, you gain +1d4 instead), small( you are small sized)

Daily Punch 10-7-20 Dwarf racial template for Star Crawl/DCC RPG

Why not bring the old races back!

Dwarf: Short, built, and hardy, dwarves are the bedrock of any group they are part of. Haling from under the earth, they find the transition to space hard, but fit in well into spaceships where a crew might not see open sky for months at a time.
Stat Adjustments: Stamina +2
Special Abilities: Burly(add 1/2 Level (minimum +1) to Fortitude Saves)
