Any news on the newest DCC adventures?

Post by MrHemlocks » Mon Sep 05, 2011 8:25 am

Hello

Just curiouse as to how the newest adventures will be released and in what style. I remember D&D The Keep on the Bordelands as being my first adventure. It gave our new characters a place to call home while adventuring...tons of fun.

Has there been any rumors as to what adventures will be published after DCC is released? Would be neat if something like the Keep on the Borderlands was one of them. :P

We have a slew of adventures in the hopper. I don't have the official list with me at the moment, but at some point you can expect to see:
  • People of the Pit
  • The Emerald Sorcerer
  • The 13th Skull
  • Beyond the Black Gate
  • Blades Against Death
  • Jewels of the Carnifex
  • Sailors on the Starless Sea

... among some super-cool releases by new authors that I'm not sure I can share yet. Joseph is in the process of finishing the covers and they look dynamite.

You can see some of the covers on our GaryCon flyer:

And yes, Keep on the Borderlands was one of my favorites, too. I love that adventure. So much so, that we wrote something very much in a similar vein: Into the Wilds.

Nice, Harley! I've seen some of these, but your list is a lot more extenive that any I've heard about. This is sounding better and better! 8)

Yeah, I cannot wait for him to release the new covers. They are really looking great. And the adventures themselves are really, really well done.

Do you know about how much the adventures are going to sell for?

Great question. Not my corner of the company, so I'll see if the boss can't shed some light on anticipated pricing. (That said, I suspect you can expect something in the range of the current DCCs, page/penny ratio wise.)

One of the first adventures I ever played was The Keep on the Borderlands...simply loved it! Do you know how compatible your adventure Hackmaster: Little Keep on the Borderlands will be with DCC core rules?

Also, do you have a picture of the map(s) used in the Hackmaster: Little Keep on the Borderlands?

Little Keep was done by the fine folks at Kenzer & Co, so I don't have any of the maps. As for compatibility, I'd have to check, but I can't imagine that converting them would be too difficult.

That said, I *do* have some pretty sweet isometric maps for Into the Wilds:

New authors?

Since the modules are very close to being announced anyway, here is a sneak peak of the cover art. DCC RPG adventures have very short stat blocks and the result is manuscript word counts that are much lower than 4E or 3E modules. None of these have gone to layout yet so I'm not 100% sure of the final page counts but I will be announcing them all as 24 pages because I anticipate something in that range based on the word count. Target price is $9.99 but that may change by a dollar or two depending on how each module's final page count fleshes out. Look for full details on these (including blurbs and such) on the main web site in about a week.

Note that the last two covers below aren't finished - they are mockups (as noted) and Doug is painting away feverishly trying to finish them up!

I love the names of these adventures. They seem pulled straight from Howard or Lieber.

Yeah, the cover from Blades is one of my favorite so far. I can't wait to see the final art.

I don't see any of the names I mentioned above on any of the new modules. Thats a real shame. :(

Those guys were a big reason why I became a big DCC fan before. Especially Adrian Pommier and Chris Doyle, since Castle Whiterock ruled. And Adrian was the best at GenCon, running the tournament.

If they were involved in this new game I'd be more willing to give it a shot. But I havent seen any of them involved in the development threads so I'm guessing not. Hopefully I'm wrong and they're working on later modules?

Glad to finally see the cover art. It will be really sweet to have so much product support for the RPG so quickly!

I have no inside information about this, but in general once a writer gets on the schedule for a company they tend to have that inside track on later writing. If they do a good job, which the authors you listed have clearly done. I suspect that once the Goodman Games floodgates open for RPG support that we'll see quite a few familar names return.

That font for "Blades Againt Death" look like old-school heavy metal. Nice.

I hope so. I just wish Joseph or Harley could confirm this.

The adventure titles and covers (even as mock-ups) are mind-blowingly fantastic.

Assuming I don't get laid off like I was for several months a few years back...you guys have my money for all of these.

Say, you gonna do the subscription thing again?

With the right discount, I'd certainly consider subscribing. :D
Click here to purchase my five AD&D modules.
Each of these modules is self-contained. No other books are required other than the three AD&D rulebooks (or a similar set of rules if you prefer).
Click here to purchase prints of Luigi Castellani's cover art for these modules.
