Hey, great question welland_warrior!
I can tell you with much conviction that the AD&D conversions of the very popular DCC adventures have not been cancelled. Au contraire mon fraire!
When Black Blade Publishing took on the Swords & Wizardry product line last September, it literally consumed super-sized
portions of our time and energy. Managing the physical production of the S&W books, maintaining the Black Blade online store, performing order fulfillment, and doing most of the marketing and convention support - doing all of that took a huge amount of time and energy.
With the recently announced course change for Swords & Wizardry, with the whole product line moving to Frog God Games, we should see the amount of time available for other projects increase. Our hope is to resume our focus on the projects we had on the drawing board when Black Blade was launched in early 2009. In particular, the AD&D conversions of some of the better DCCs will be moving up in priority on our projects list. Specifically, the next two DCC conversions we’ll be releasing will be DCC #32 The Golden Palace of Zahadran and DCC # 40 The Devil in the Mists. The Golden Palace of Zahadran should see release in the fall.
DCC #26 is on the list of DCC conversions I want to do. I haven’t read it in some time, but I remember thinking it might be a good candidate for conversion to AD&D.
Thanks for the interest!
