I was not able to make it, but how did it go?

I was gone all weekend, so I will check to see if other people ran into you at GaryCon.

Heard about the new Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG. IT making quite a stir at grognardia.com

C'mon, what's the scoop?

We are indeed working on a Dungeon Crawl Classics role playing game. I ran several playtest sessions at Gary Con and now there are some accounts floating around on the interweb. Because a lot of the system is still in development - and these are very early playtests - it's a little early to say much more than that. Check out the reports from the various bloggers who were in the games for more info. All I'll tell you is, a lot of PCs died, and everybody had a blast. Only one TPK so far but I did kill 18 PCs in that game. :)

For those who are interested, here are a few other observations from GaryCon regarding DCC RPG. Keep in mind that the game is early in its development and nothing is final at this point!

I see in other threads y'all are going to GaryCon III. So I'm curious who I have to....uhhh..bribe...to get into a playtest game or two?

Also, I volunteered to help out coordinating some kids gaming stuff/activities and wonder if you'd like to run an adventure (or have someone do so) for some yutes (say, 9-13 or something)...

Love to see it's taking shape. I think I'll go over and preorder now...

Good question, as I would like to attend Gary Con in 2011.

No need for bribes, there are slots available via their normal registration process. I just swung by the Gary Con site and it looks like their event catalogue and registration is now live...you'll see DCC RPG games in there run by both me and Harley. Bring it on! :)

The kid's game sounds great. Count me as a "maybe." There are always so many things to do. Plus I have to leave some time in between the official games to get in some games of Puerto Rico!
