  • Dispatches from the Raven Crowking Vol. II: Designing and Running Adventures (DCC/almost system-neutral) The second booklet of essays and thoughts by the eponymous Raven Crowking (aka Daniel J. Bishop) clocks in at 54 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page blank, leaving us with 50 pages, though these are made for the a5 (6” by 9”-standard) – you can fit 4 of them on a sheet of paper if you’re like me and tend to print things out.   We begin this pdf with the basics and, even if one is an experienced judge, it may help to recap the steps: 1) Brainstorm.

So how do they scale? Most feats get their first upgrade at 7th level, the second at 14th, but that can in no way be claimed for all of them – one upgrade at 17th level (for feats that require 10th level), 13th and 20th level-upgrades…see the reasoning?
