Favorite DCC Modules

Post by finarvyn » Fri Feb 26, 2010 7:41 am

I have some of the DCC modules and am looking at acquiring more. What I wanted to know is: which are the "best" or "favorite" DCC that I should be looking for?

I was thinking of the GenCon Tournament modules:
2004: Crypt of the Devil Lich (DCC #13)
2005: Vault of the Dragon Kings (DCC #30)
2006: Palace in the Wastes (DCC #49)
2007: Chronicle of the Fiend (DCC #52)

What do you think? Any suggestions?

Oh, I forgot that I have a high interest in the old school conversions.

DCC #3: The Mysterious Tower (Castles and Crusades)
DCC #7: The Secret of Smuggler's Cove (Castles and Crusades)
DCC #37: The Slithering Overlord (Castles and Crusades)

Any others I've missed?

Castle Whiterock is pretty much a "must".

I'm personally very fond of #29 and #48, the compilations of short lower-levels adventures.

I saw this at Games Plus and it's heavy. Is it full of bricks or something? :P It was also $99, so I'll need to save up just a bit....

Well, I did it. Ordered both the DCC 51 boxed set and DCC 51.5 prequel module. Looking forward to reading, and reading, and reading.... 8)

Curse of the Emerald Cobra is my fave. I added a couple of patrols on flying mounts in the open area and it turned into basically a single huge running battle from platform to platform. Good times! Fortunately, the players were a little up-level for it, so taking on the whole village at once wasn't a suicide run.
