Anyone seen this? Just bought it -- the setting is very Appendix N (Howard and Lovecraft heavy). The ruleset is very AD&D. Lots of potential use out of this one.

I brought and have given it a read, the character classes are good but I can't see me playing it instead of DCC Rpg. Its basically a just re written d20 SRD with very little original material apart from the sub classes. The adventures being produced for the game look of more use as they have that appendix N vibe to them.

Beautiful boxed set. Haven't gotten a chance to look at it too closely, but at a glance the monster and treasure sections look to have some good stuff.

I was a doubter when I first picked up the PDF for this one, but I had a chance to play this past weekend and it was a real hoot. There are enough tweaks from AD&D to keep it fresh and the setting is rich with Appendix N flavor. I give it 4 out of 5 loincloths!

Taken at Dunwich is a great Appendix N adventure. I want to run it soon soon, but not sure about the levels. Still thinking about conversion.

Yeah, I imagine their products will convert nicely to DCC much like LotFP material.

* Note, I give DCC RPG 5 our of 5 loincloths, but wanted t give these guys some props

DCC RPG is by far the best of these new OSRish systems. The main reason for me is because the Warrior doesn't suck, in fact he rules in DCC RPG!
