Re: Thick Skull Adventures

Have you considered offering your modules via RPGNow's/DTRPG's POD service? It'd make them a lot easier for folks not in the US to get copies that way. P&P from the USA is a killer at the moment whereas the POD service has branches in the UK, for example. Colin, you know, to be honest I haven't...

Have you looked at Attack of the Frawgs or the Purple Sorcerer modules, Ooze Pits etc? I haven't checked those out yet, but most modules tend to run 2-3 session IME -- I'm looking for something really short because I'm planning to also run Portal under the Stars (plus, we'll be at GenCon, and there...

Re: Modules For the actual DCC RPG

FWIW, when I was designing the monsters for Frawgs , I would take a look at similar monsters in the DCC RPG rulebook, and compare them to other similar monsters in the 1st Ed AD&D rulebook and/or OSRIC monster manual. How close were skeletons? Orcs? Kobolds? Owlbears? Did I want my own monsters ...
