Dragon's Hoard Publishing proudly presents
"The Unusual Suspects" - A sourcebook of patrons
Here at Dragon's Hoard Publishing we love Goodman Games' Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG and all that it stands for.
Dungeon Crawl Classics takes tabletop roleplaying back to its roots. It focuses on (but is certainly not limited to!) traditional dungeon crawl adventures. Its unique core system of rules allow for a breath of fresh air and flexibility in a crowded market. We believe that what Goodman Games has achieved, in term's of presentation, writing, and art work, is take you into the worlds discribed by the authors listed in Appendix N, the influential writing described by Gary Gygax in the AD&D Dungeon Master's Guide.
Our goal with "The Unusual Suspects" is to expand upon this amazing product by focusing on a unique concept from the DCC RPG - patron magic - and expanding it.
"The Unusual Suspects" is a perfect bound softcover supplement book detailing a host of new patrons for use in the DCC RPG. In terms of patrons, expect our work to show the influences of Gardner Fox, A. Merritt, Leigh Brackett, Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and H.P. Lovecraft to name a few. "The Unusual Suspects" will be a 32-page, high quality product featuring brand new artwork. It will utilize the Open Game License and the Dungeon Crawl Classics compatability license to ensure full compatability to the Dungeon Crawl Classic rules set.
Because this project is still in development, and because we want to make this supplement really worth your time, Dragon's Hoard publishing is proud to announce a number of stretch goals to "The Unusual Suspects". For every additional goal we meet, after our initial goal, we will add an additional sixteen pages of patrons until the book reaches a staggering 96 pages, with a final 4 pages dedicated to our brand new magic items section!
If that isn't enough to pique your interest, we will also be providing free shipping anywhere in the world.
Everybody will receive now recieve the 96 page book if we hit our initial goal in one capacity or another.

Should Set-Utekh ever be freed from other-worldy His prison, He will eat the life of stars and planets.

It is said that Mulmo hears every word whispered on love's pillow, every curse screamed in defiance, rage, or hatred. To see Mulmo is to be driven mad. To hear Mulmo's rasping whispers is to know much...and, perhaps, also to be driven mad.
$75 everything mentioned above + game box with unique art by Scott Ackerman plus all stretch goals + magic item section.
$100 - Pesh Joomang, the Gate and the Keeper
In the Lands of the Sau, long ago, dwelt the sages Yaggyx and Sarnon, who distilled the visions of a slew of prior wizards and scribes into several great tomes of lore and magic. But, as time passed, Tarot Wizards wrested the tomes from the great sages. What Yaggyx and Sarnon had wrought was distorted and lost. Indeed, there were some who felt that the Old Magic had never truly existed, and that tales of a long-lost Golden Age were but illusions of memory.
It was Pesh Joomang who tracked back through the works of the great sages, discovering the pandects of the scribes who came before Yaggyx and Sarnon, and so renewed the fires of the Old Magic. Pesh Joomang is both the Keeper of, and the Gate to, the Old Magic. Some claim that he is the greatest patron of them all.
$100 everything above plus all stretch goals + my own module signed and shrink wrapped "the tomb of curses" coming out this year published by dragon hoard publishing + bonus patron "Pesh Joomang" the greatest patron of them all not included anywhere else.
