The Bone Hoard is Getting the Print Treatment

Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror is the first published work I did for Dungeon Crawl Classics. Indeed, it is the first writing I did for Dungeon Crawl Classics at all.

For a very long time, this adventure was only available in pdf format. It is now available in print.

You can get it here. 

Or read the reviews here.

And now there is this......

Available in pdf at RPG Now (print to follow).

The Giggling Deep describes an underground location with unique properties that will draw wizards and elves back again and again. Other character types may find things of interest to them. The Goremera offers a unique combat challenge, and warriors may be tracking the beast to avenge its victims. Thieves are given three potential prizes – the Goremera’s hoard, a shrine to loot, and a creature whose cooked flesh aids in combating poisons. Clerics of the Hidden Lord may need to reach His shrine to achieve some quest. Clerics of opposed deities may be sending their minions to destroy it. Giving multiple PCs different (and sometimes contradictory!) purposes in entering the region results in the most fun.

Angels, Daemons & Beings Between: Dagon Hardcover Edition

The Extended, Otherworldly Edition of Angels, Daemons, and Beings Between is now available. Right now, the hardcover Dagon cover is the only version active. 

Due to licensing, there is no pdf version at this time. David Fisher deserves a lot of praise for obtaining the rights for a print version.

Angels, Daemons and Beings Between: Extended, Otherworldly Edition is a Patrons supplement for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game.

The Dagon Hardcover Edition has been made as a backers' reward. It will only be made available publicly after backers have the book and then only at limited times.

Patrons.

More than mere supernatural benefactors, they are the schemers whose plots set worlds into motion. They are beings who amuse, enthrall, and terrify the mortals who dare to bargain with them!

24 new and fully developed patrons and demi-patrons for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Included are 66 new spells, more monstrous minions, and new spellburn and patron taint tables to use in your DCC campaign.

A must for DCC enthusiasts!

Appendix N Alert

If you are in the Toronto area, and especially if you are in the Annex, you may wish to check out Zoinks! Music and Books on 1018 Bloor Street West. I was there last night, and saw a number of Appendix N works...unfortunately mostly ones I already had. But there was a copy of Jack of Shadows there, at least last night, as well as several works by Michael Moorcock, Jack Vance, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and even a Jack Williamson. There were two Thongar novels remaining when I left, a fair bit of Zelazny, and more.

If you are in the area, and looking to fill out your Appendix N collection, it may be worth a stop.

Their phone number is 416-913-8827.

They are having a sale from August 20 to August 21, but some of these harder-to-find works may have disappeared by then!

What is the DCC Trove of Treasures?

If you haven't noticed it yet, I have started a companion blog, DCC Trove of Treasures, which exists solely to catalogue and talk about all of the products available for the Dungeon Crawl Classics system. I am interlinking it with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Product List, so that, eventually, when you see a product listed you will also be able to check out what's in it, what it is about, or what I thought about it.

Once I have gone through the (ever-expanding) list of products, I'll start to add links to product review for every product, if I can find them.

The idea is that you will eventually have a "living" document available to help discover things you might have missed, avoid the products that won't meet your needs, and give feedback of your own in the comments.

I just posted the first issue of Crawling Under a Broken Moon. Going in alphabetical order, that leaves me with a lot of Umerica, followed by a lot of Crawljammer. That isn't a chore. That's a privilege.

(Oh, and that picture? If you haven't heard, an expanded version of Angels, Daemons, and Beings Between is coming out. In print. From Shinobi 27 Games. It's a real cause for celebration!)

Just Came in the Mail Today



This Year's Mathom is Ready to Go!

In accordance with this post, I am sending out a free adventure tomorrow.

The requirements were (1) post a review, (2) link to that review in the comments, and (3) send me your email address so that I can send you the adventure. I posted back in January to give people plenty of time.

Three people managed to do that this year.

There are days that I wonder why I bother.
