Episode 98: Curses!
We let our blessings get mouldy, and then call them curses.” What’s in a curse? At most gaming tables, they’re uttered by players when critical failures pop up. But curses in DCC are an under-utilized mechanic! They’re not just for the Shudfolk! If you’re looking to switch up your NPC casters to make them unpredictable, offer a touch of magic to players without overpowering the party, or spice up your treasure hauls, curses are the way to go.
