The Demon Skull Returns
Greetings, heathen-slayers and warlocks!
It’s official: the DCC demon skull cover is returning! And by "demon skull" we mean this design:
Thanks to everyone who responded to our post yesterday. There’s a lot of interest in the DCC demon skull cover.
Personally I love this image. It is the original “iconic DCC image.” And also the first to include a secret message. Many of you have probably heard the story about the hidden "Roslof" text included in the runes at the bottom. Jim Roslof was TSR’s first art director. He is responsible for many of TSR’s famous illustrations, including the cover to Keep on the Borderlands. The very last illustration he completed before his passing was for DCC RPG. This is why some of his illustrations in the core rulebook are unsigned – he was quite sick at the time he drew them, and passed away before they were finished. The core rulebook is dedicated to him, and his name appears in the demon skull illustration.
When the 7th printing of DCC RPG is printed, we will include an alternate cover of the core rulebook that features the original DCC demon skull. For backers of this Kickstarter, it will be printed in gold foil with a faux leather cover in a burgundy or brown tone (exact details to be determined). It will be immediately distinguishable from the original 1st printing, which was gold on black. (This one’s for you, Diogo!)
How to add on: To include the demon skull edition of the core rulebook, simply add +$60 to your pledge. When we launch the BackerKit at the end of the campaign, you'll be able to use that to tell us “what the dollars are for.”
Thanks for the support everyone!
