Oldhammer has been on my mind lately. I started thinking about a "Grimdark future" DCC funnel. Then this happened. Shamelessly adapted (stolen) from a few places including WHFRP 1E. I meant to fill it out to 100 but I realized that was never going to happen. You guys can figure out how to roll a d43 right? UPDATE! Thanks to +Doug Kovacs +Paul Wolfe and +Eric Betts there are now 50!
