Really enjoying the little touches in the art of the modules so far. The Death of ol' Ratface in SotSS, including the silhouetted foreshadowing of his replacement. Love the replacement of His Baldness in PotP with the black sorceress from the DCC core rules, including the updated "We're With The Band" ad at the back, with the female cleric carrying RF's old medallion. Also love the nod back to DotSK in PotP in the pic "The Death of Kculdab of Hirot" (Badluck indeed!).

It's stuff like this that makes reading the modules a real treat. :)

I agree 100%. I keep getting confused on which modules have been released yet or not so I hesitate to give too many examples, but all of the pre-release stuff that I've seen has some really clever monsters, neat puzzles, and nifty bad guys. All with cool maps and wonderful flavor text.

These modules are honestly among the best I've seen in 35 years of gaming. (Along with the classic Gygax monochromes, of course.)

Looks like somebody is paying attention. Thanks Colin. I'll keep up my end and keep an eye on Mr. Goodman.
Joe and I have worked pretty closely to both keep ourselves entertained and reward the perceptive.

One more thing you might not know is that RF had his first appearance in a playtest in the Chicagoland area (Games Plus) , and second in the skill section of the core book. Kculdab is also in the core book somewhere....

Seriously, Doug...your art 100% rules. "Awesome-balls" as they new saying goes.

Words actually can't express how vital your art is to this game, but your pieces are absolutely essential to my enjoyment of the core book and modules...and I know I'm not alone in feeling that way.

You're more than welcome; thanks for producing such fantastic covers and my favourite interior art too. :)

Yep, did notice RF in the Skills chapter illo. diligently trying to pick a lock. I'm kind of hoping that gradually, as others characters meet their grisly demise, the band (and accompanying "We're With the Band" ad pic) will change more and more, not just in member composition, but also in how surviving members are portrayed (such as with better gear/items, more scars, etc.).

You gotta post more often, Doug. You're still an "Ill-Fated Peasant." :lol:

Seriously, your art rocks! Especially the maps!

I think DCC RPG doesn't have a unified art aesthetic aside from the covers, which are all Doug, I believe.

I got Doug to sign my LE Gold book at Origins and I was so hyped up I was just rambling on. His art work is amazing and if you've just seen his work in DCC RPG, you're missing a whole other side of his. Check out his web site if you haven't already :D

I am glad you are noticing. I was wondering if anyone would observe the changes in "the band." And there will be more changes to come!

Excellent news, and very much looking forward to seeing more such artistic flourishes and elements in future modules. :)
