Re: Finally: New DCC releases!

Aeryn "Blackdirge" Rudel is the primary reason it came out so good.

Anyone going to KublaCon?

I'll be at KublaCon this weekend, anyone else attending? Official Goodman presence or otherwise?

Or am I truly the only Goodman freelancer that lives on the left coast? :(

Is that for the RPG Metamorphosis? Did it get reprinted? Nope, it's an original story set in the Abyss. The full title of the trilogy is: Metamorphosis: From Dretch to Demon Lord. BD Ah, yes.

I know it's a bit early, but will Goodman Games be at the D&D experience (formerly Winter Fantasy) in February? They will be offering the first demos of 4E, and as a d20 publisher, I'll be there taking notes. :D

Really, there's no perfect formula for making challange appropriate monsters. Playtesting certainly helps, but not every group is the same, or uses the same tactics, so you can get wildly different outcomes with different groups of similar characters.
