DCC in The "Gamers: Dorkness Rising"

Post by finarvyn » Wed Aug 12, 2009 5:33 am

Apologies if this has been dealt with elsewhere.

When I was watching The Gamers: Dorkness Rising I noticed a large number of D&D type products shown in the background, etc, and got the impression that the basic storyline of the movie was based on one of the DCC modules.

However, when looking at a game store I couldn't find it. They had a lot of the modules, and the ones they had listed others on the back, so I thought I had access to most of the module titles. Nothing looked familiar.

Is there such a module, and if so what is the number? Or, was it simply some sort of mock-up for the movie?

The module was a limited edition for GenCon 2005. Very rare from what I understand.

The module actually featured in the movie was a custom mockup we did just for the movie. We released a convention special (referenced above) that followed along the plot of part of the movie.

Unfortunate. I would have loved to run my group through that module. :(

Is there a reason that module isn't available in PDF format?

Any further thoughts or news on this? My group loved Gamers II and have been bugging me about running the module, but alas I simply can't find a copy. :(

PDF would be sweet! :D

If I get my hands on this, I will certainly change it to DCC RPG!
