Tonight I got to try Dungeon Crawl Classics (the game system, not the OGL modules) for the first time and I have to say I was super impressed.
To be perfectly honest I'm not generally a big fan of "retro" game systems because along with the nostalgia I can remember all the headaches with old school game mechanics. But having said that Dungeon Crawl Classics does a great job of using a current modern framework for their game but just dropping a lot of extraneous nonsense that bogs the game down.
For tonight's game I was playing a cleric and I had the perfect figure from Otherworld miniatures to fit the mood of the game. The figure has a retro aesthetic but is sculpted and cast to the standards we expect from our miniatures today.
Zenithar had a very bi-polar night. He made a few important rolls and came through on a couple of big occasions for the party but he also bombed quite a few easy checks and had severely incurred the displeasure of his Deity before the session was over.
Lots of fun and I think I'd really like to play again!
