Any more hints about this product? From the sounds of it, it will be the biggest thing that Goodman has ever released, which is pretty cool. Glad to see more boxed sets, too.

My Whiterock Wishlist
-Tie ins with other DCCs (less vaccum, more Aereth!)
-A base of operations for the PCs
-New Monsters! (will there ever be a DCC Monster Manual?)
-Some kick butt new magic goodies
-A few silly guest art peices from the guys that do Knights of the Dinner Table.

I'm with him ^ on that. Even a little hint? Pretty please with a mocha latte from Starbuck's on top?

(Seriously. You post info, I'll PayPal you the cost of a venté Starbuck's. Really, I will. Don't dare me.)

All of us out here sure do, and we're all crying too. Apparently Joe and/or Harley doesn't want coffee.

That's fine. I'll drink it myself. :twisted:

Come on guys, where's your self control?

Part of the fun of an annoucement of a forth coming title is the anticipation.

It's like watching a storm brewing on the horizon. It's coming and part of the fun of a rain storm is seeing it approach.

Besides, they may not like coffee!

Yuck!

You can keep your coffee. Give me a glass of fresh squeezed lemonaide any day of the week. If we are doing coffee for the warmth, give me hot apple cider or hot chocolate.

I'm not a coffee fan, although it smells good.

Golden words of utmost truth. :)

I consumed much of the precious liquid gold when writing my little GG adventure. I practically had an intravenous drip going by the end.

This talk brings to mind [geek reference alert] some Star Trek: Voyager epsiode in which Jason Alexander (of Seinfeld fame) plays an alien who dares a sip of Janeway's coffee, makes a face, and says, "You actually enjoy this?"
I got a real laugh from that.

500 pages? 500 pages! I have not been this excited since #35 was announced. I am stoked. Looks like I am going to book that trip to Indy after all.

Yeah, and everything I've edited to date looks awesome. Now if only I can make my Wisdom check to successfully check the continuity of a 500-page, massively multi-leveled dungeon.... :shock:

Ogrepuppy,

You'll see more as things get laid out and more art is developed. I can tell you that it's humongous! Lots of surprises, traps, a few cleverly placed shortcuts (to Pain and Death!), and yes, by Odin, there's even a story that connects the whole thing! :shock: For details beyond that, I respectfully punt to Messrs. Stroh and Goodman.

Hah. Yes, you're right. I'm so mixed up. :?

Now someone's going to show up with a name like JediOchrePuppy and confuse the heck out of me.

I suppose my greatest concern is this: will Castle Whiterock more resemble Castle Greyhawk ( :cry: ) or Greyhawk Ruins ( :D )?
