Old School Role-Playing is Back!

The beginning days of fantasy adventuring RPGs was a golden age where your game had the endless possibilities of imagination, and becoming a hero was anything but promised. That era of exciting and high-risk adventuring is back with Goodman Games Dungeon Crawl Classics. This booklet (with 2 adventures) nests itself right in the center of that creative renaissance.

Booklet Overview

Reckoning of the Gods-Into the Shadow Realm is a 32-page stand-alone adventure built for Dungeon Crawl Classics-but easily adapted into any fantasy RPG system. It is available as a softcover PRINT booklet and in a digital PDF format. The adventures are fashioned for 6-8 characters averaging 3rd level. There are a few deadly encounters which have to be navigated creatively, while groups purely interested in swordplay will find themselves creating new characters in short order!


Double Adventure

This is a two part adventure. Each part is set up in distinct environments. Part 1 takes place in the bizarre dimensional manse of a crazed arch-wizard whose power is threatening to unveil a secret of the gods. Part 2 takes place in an ancient lair of the most powerful entity of the known realms: the Great Ancient Dragon, Woetalon. This portion features a parallel overlapping reality which players will have to cross in and out of in order to survive the lair.

The Adventure

What fool would dare cheat the gods? Such a thought alone is one worthy of a foul reckoning. But the rewards are too tempting for the Great Moxicotl who has reached for the heavens and grasped at a lore tempered with madness! Now justice is in the hands of your group of devotees. Careful though, lest the same temptations lure you into the realm of shadows, or hidden secrets of the gods cause your fate to cross paths with the ancient Wurm!

In the beginning, the adventurers are contacted by a vengeful divine force, either through their cleric, or by means of a shared mystical experience. They learn that the gods are intent on punishing the transgressions of a mad wizard, but their influence is limited by the wizard's own dimensional reality. The group has been chosen to be the earthly avatars of celestial retribution. 

The Shadow Realm

The booklet features an entirely new way to adventure! Players will have the chance to slip in and out of a parallel universe which is an altered reality. Two maps are included--each one detailing the Shadow Realm and normal reality and what lies within each. The maps are arranged to allow the judge to easily gauge where players emerge when sliding between realms. In order to progress and survive the lair of Woetalon, PCs will have to move back and forth between dimensions.

New Spell: The Shadow Step & Reach spell is included in the booklet. A rare spell which allows access to the realm of shadow...if a wizard dares! 

A New World: Rules and laws for travelling in and out of the shadow realm are included. Making the adventure move beyond the 3 dimensions of exploration and into an entirely new one!

Surviving Capture: Also included is a special chart for determining the effects and chances of survival over years of forced service to the powerful and insane dragon, Woetalon.

Greenwood of the Fey Sovereign 

Last year we released our first DCC RPG adventure. The PRINT version is available here or here and the PDF version is here.

Our First Adventure Booklet
Our First Adventure Booklet

Greenwood Overview: A 20-page, stand-alone adventure created for the DCC RPG system in soft cover PRINT and PDF format. It can be adapted to any fantasy RPG system. The adventure is primarily for 0 or 1st level characters. It is not setting specific and can be placed into any fantasy world near ancient woodlands.

Greenwood Theme: War is looming. The Earl of Nanch and his neighboring elven kingdom are sharpening the spears of aggression. Those on the border are split between two dangerous dynasts. Pressed into duty for lord and country, the peasants and gong farmers of Nanch find themselves in a strange and unnerving forest full of denizens older than the practice of naming. In this new world, the rules of life and death are a game of whimsy practiced by fantastic forces, and bizarre ancient feuds re-ignite in the chaos of war. Those errant attendants of Nanch will be fortunate to survive the madness of either ruler!

New Character Sheet: An illustrated  character sheet that can be used for a 0 or 1st level character of any class. It  features some useful character information which is not available on standard DCC character sheets: Fumble Die, Temporary Ability Loss, Class Hit Die, Initiative Die, and more.

Wild Elf (Wildling): A new character class. The Wild Elf is a character class option for any elf character. Wildlings have some combat, stealth and magic abilities, but are not specialists in any of these areas. They also have a unique set of weapons available from their cultural crafts.

What is DCC RPG? 

The funnest, most amazing, new (yet classic) role-playing game out there. If you want to jump into the old school RPG feel, if you played AD&D and want to get your kids into the games that had the snap you remember, this is the system. 

It is easy to pick up for people new to RPG games, and a blast for those of us who played the original AD&D classics and games like Gamma World. It has the feel of the Gary Gygax vision for the genre, yet it is a system that improves a lot of the holes in the original systems without getting too complex. Read more here. Best of all you really only need 1 book (to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them). They even have a $5 quickstart rulebook, but i highly recommend the full book since it has all the lovely details, art, and charts you will want.
