Haven’t done a DCC post in awhile! I’ve been meaning to write this one up for a bit, but kept pushing it to the back burner.
You are loyal to your friends, swift to protect them against harm and manipulation. You are vicious against your enemies, using your abilities to harm and hinder them. Your ability to manipulate your flesh into new forms gives you many an edge, not only in battle, but in everyday life and adventures. Your love for food, groovy music, and sleep also makes you hard to motivate and keep moving, but eventually you’ll succumb to the thought of adventure and the possibility of acquiring treasures, power, or perhaps just a tasty looking strawberry donut.
Hit Points: Dogs are a stout lot and gain 1d10 HP per level.
Weapon Training: Dogs prefer to use their fists, which deal 1d6. Dogs can transform their hands into other weapons that deal weapon damage (see Stretchy Powers). Dogs are not fans of using real weapons, but will in a pinch. They are familiar with short swords, hand axes, and blow guns. Dogs are proficient with any armor, but can use a shield.
Alignment: The Dogs are mischievous and enjoy pranks, fighting, and leading a hedonistic lifestyle. They are Chaotic by nature.
Small size: While in their normal state Dogs stand roughly 3 to 4 feet tall, and weigh roughly 50-75 pounds. This small size allows them to crawl into narrow passages and through tiny holes.
Rubbery Skinned: The Dogs skin is rubbery and squishy, allowing them to ignore 2 points of damage from any source. A Dog can increase their damage reduction to +4 through the use of their Stretchy Powers (see below). Also a Dog is able to rearrange their internal organs at will, making them immune to Critical Hits.
Stretchy Powers: The Stretchy Powers mechanic allows the Dog to transform their body in special and unique ways. The This could be transforming their hands into claws, a scythe, stretching their body to attempt to constrict and hold an opponent (this would still require an attack roll), grow wings to fly, or whatever creative ideas the player can come up with. A Dog can grow and shrink in size as well. A Dog can grow to Large, Huge, and Gargantuan. Each one increases the damage done with their weapons by one step on the Die Ladder, decreases their AC by 1. A Dog can also shrink to Small, Tiny, and Diminutive as well. Each one decreases the damage done with their weapons by one step on the Die Ladder and increases their AC by +1.
To use a Stretchy Power, the player describes the desired effect and rolls their Stretchy Die. If the result is a 3 or higher, it is a success. The Dog can only have two Stretchy Powers going at the same time (I.E. transforming eyes into Compound Eyes and grow wings out of back to fly). Many of the creative solutions the player creates may have a mechanical impact, it should be deliberated with the GM on exactly how this functions. In the end, the GM has final decision.
