Ladies and Gentlemen of the Academy, I'd like to thank...hey, wait a minute! I didn't write Forges of the Mountain King!

That was another author - someone with far more cred than me...looks like the image got switched around a bit.

Although...if you look a bit to the right of Forges...see that? That's my module.

hmmmmmmmmmmm.....so, if we follow adrian's clue about the image to the right being drawn from a dcc, we can glean the following suppositions regarding the initial release of the the 4e dccs

  • forges of the mountain king (supposably not by adrian; shows what looks like an ogre; apparently for 1st level characters if the cover text is accurate)
  • adrian's dcc: something to do with aquatic environs. and clearly a sea dragon of some sort
  • unknown dcc (upper banner image) something having to do with what looks like a cyclops perhaps

so, perhaps 3 dccs w/ the initial release? (and i have to say i love the new art)

Well, I'm not up on all of my Known Realms lore, but if memory serves there was some mention of the mountain king in the two adventures dealing with Kyleth, the Witch Queen. If it is the same mountain king, then the setting would be in the Northlands. Those factors should provide some insight to the designer creating the adventure. :)

So right south of Morrain in the mountains.

I like that the numbering seems to carry through from 3.5 DCC's.

Post subject:  Re: 4E DCC

I agree with the numbering. And if they ever convert all the back stock of 3.5 DCCs to 4e, keeping the numbering the same will make things a LOT simpler.

Just dropping in to say Best of Luck with the 4E products.
I loved the 3.5 DCC stuff. Sorry that I cant offer more support for the 4E stuff, but hopefully you guys/gals every now and then will be able to toss out another 3.5 Gem. :)

I believe part of the 4e license requires no concurrent 3.5 material to be published alongside 4e. The rule is no sales of 3.5 products by 4e publishers after Dec 31, 2008, IIRC.

I'd say this is my two cents, but I'm saving every penny so I can pick up some more 3.5 DCC goodness before it's all gone!

Good news for the future of Goodman Games! Three modules ready to go.

This still leaves the question up in the air about the future of C&C modules.

I like the new look for the 4e DCCs! Just to make it painfully obvious, will DCCs 52, 53, and 54 be available for purchase at Gencon?

There's a lot of neat info in the podcast as well. The partnership with Fat Dragon Games sounds like a great idea! I'm also interested in the line of "high-end" dungeons as well.

Im not so sure about the artwork for the new DCCs. While I will be buying the 4E PHB, I'm merely doing so to rip stuff out for Castles & Crusades, but the new art seems to dispense with the 'Classics' element in favour of the new high fantasy drek. I had thought the DCCs were supposed to appeal to the 'old school'-style, only with modern production values.

Well, like Joseph said in the linked interview above, you have to differentiate the 3.5 modules from the 4E modules in appearance, and this clearly accomplishes that.

If you're on the edge of getting one or not, my advice would be to check the author...if you like (or hate) the stuff they've done in the past, you might end up feeling the same about the 4E modules.

Regardless...

...I'm sure they'll be enough "rip-able" material in there for any fantasy game, never mind the system.

I believe somewhere there was a comment about moving to a 2nd Edition feel for the art style... I think it looks like they've hit that pretty well.

When I think about 2nd Edition art, I mostly see it as the 'camera' pulling back and the perspective flying up to look down on the scene or digging into a trench and looking up at the action. Or to put it more simply, 2e art started playing with the third dimention....

Wow - two of the first-release DCC's are by Harley Stroh. Way to go Harley! I can't wait to see what the Known Realms tie-ins are for Fortress of the Mountain King.

*takes a peak at checkbook, nods to self*

Looks like I'll be throwing more money at Goodman Games for their 4E DCC's.

I just realized that this interview was done right after GTS, so that may have been before the announcement that 3rd parties can only publish games in October. So unless something gets worked out, they will not be available for purchase at Gencon.. :cry:

I'm sorry you don't like the cover art, but I can assure you that the content is still old-school DCC goodness.
