At least you didn't say "wine skin." (Actually.....why didn't you?!?)

Totally making my own DCC RPG wine skin now. :mrgreen:

Hehe, thanks! Wineskins are made of... skin. Beer steins are made of METAL!

Oh, so. I think I nice little project that would ideal for a Christmas release would be a BASIC SET. Softcover book (~128pg) that goes to 5th, with dice and character record sheets and a small Judges guide (~32pg) with a short adventure. Oh, I like A5 or Digest sized formats these days. Nothing new, so no one feels cheated, but collectors would be all over it. Especially if the box was WHITE.

Oooooh ,yes most definitely. Drinking out of a DCC stein, with wearing a DCC t-shirt and opening up a DCC white box. Sounds like an awesome Christmas, and since we're on steins and mugs, why not koozies?

I'm working on these... as fast as my fingers can type...edit...format.... :mrgreen:

1. High quality dice.
2. DM screen (landscape, easier to reach over)... though I thought we were supposed to 'roll in the open' :wink:
3. cosmology book, patrons, spells, etc. (I've got some ideas for this one too)
4. module specific minis (like the stuff for DCC#1)

I would like to see:
Judge's screen,
a monster book,
magic item book
a deity/patron book

and a sandbox box set detailing different locations to explore, an interesting home base for the party, and a variety of city, wilderness, dungeon/ruin adventures. It could be like castle white rock except instead of several books detailing different dungeon levels of the same dungeon, they could detail different adventures sites. It then could include a book just on the largist city in the area, with detail about the tavern that the adventures are likely to frequent. And of course, there would be plenty of room for judges to expand and their own adventures.

My wishlist:
1. The latest and greatest character sheets available for download on the DCCRPG page.
2. More DCC adventures
3. an official DCCRPG "heavy metal" dice set including Zocchi dice.
4. a Judge's screen (4-fold, or perhaps 5-fold to accommodate all the tables, in portrait)
5. DCCRPG version of "the Gazetteer of the Known Worlds"
6. DCCRPG version of Castle Whiterock
7. Downloadable conversion guidelines for content from other OSR systems
8. More DCC adventures

Aside from the minor adjustment to #1, I have to agree with Dougal. Adventures may not be profitable (according to some "D&D sage") but they're absolutely needed.

How about a Dungeon Crawl Classics Classics series?

Take a selection of the best old dcc modules and rework them for the new game system?

I really enjoyed running 'Smugglers Cove' and 'Dread Crypt of Srihoz' using Castles & Crusades but to have them remade with the new rules and ideals would be great. Less conventional and more spectacular? Srihoz as a Patron with his own servants and spells? Less amber door traps and more gibbering shoggoths?

I am very much looking forward to the new modules and have pre-ordered most of them but when you are busy working on the next spellbooks or world settings...a stream of easier to make conversion remakes would be fantastic to keep us going. Maybe some talented 3PP could be enticed to do the work?

The game is not even out and we want more, more, more!

You must have done something right :D

Keeping with the spirit of the game how about instead of a GM screen we get a GM dice mat to roll on out in the open?

I'd love to see a patron book. It's one of the most unique parts of the DCC ruleset to me, so having more options to include, or reskin, or riff off of, would be awesome! Adventures too, but those are obviously going to be trickling out at a pretty consistent pace anyway.

I don't use a screen much anymore, but a crib sheet of useful charts, tables, etc. would be great. I suppose this could easy be created in the user community.

But not by me :)

Having done an exhaustive search for Zocchi complete sets now, I have to also push for an official set, as there are no sets I've been able to find that include both a d7 and d30. Most don't have the d7 and all exclude the d30. So commissioning a set would be awesome, maybe we could do a Kickstarter if nothing else.
