Hello everyone,

Well, it was another great Gen Con, with lots of fun had by all. We had a terrific time, and got great feedback on the tournament, DCC boxed set, new DCC minis, Xcrawl: Necromerica, "Mysteries of the Occult", the DCC-Midnight Syndicate crossover -- and the 1E adaptation of DCC #12.5. This one in particular proved far more popular than I expected of a module with a potential audience that's a small fraction of our 3E modules. But that audience appears to be ravenous!

Since there were so many disappointed 1E fans at Gen Con, I'm doing a second print run on this title. Here's how it will work.

Pre-Order Period: I will take preorders until September 15.

Print Run: On September 16 I will print a number of copies equal to the print run plus a small additional quantity. Fans who place a preorder are guaranteed a copy. All orders after September 15 will be delivered on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.

Delivery Time: The modules will be delivered in mid-October, depending on printer lead times and the postal service.

Where to Buy: From the Goodman Games web store:
http://www.goodman-games.com/store.php

Any questions, post here...

Joseph,

The question has come up several times. Will the .pdf for the 1E version be made available for sale?

Thanks,

tj

Hi guys,

Answering both questions:

Differences: There are a couple typos that will be fixed in the 2nd printing.

PDF: Yes, a PDF edition will be available after the 2nd printing ships (around mid-October).

Any chance of doing a small run of this module without the typo fixes? A literal 'extra print run' indistinguishable from the one sold at GenCon? What would be the smallest number of pre-ordered copies needed to do this non-corrected print run?

*lol*

Actually, to be honest, it would be simplicity to run off another 40-50 "indistinguishable" copies at $30-40 a pop and sell those in no time at all... just call that a half-way-house to those "collectors" who failed to secure their "1st print" copies at GenCon.
So long as the total number doesn't go much above 100, I doubt there will be many complaints since the higher price wouldn't compromise their "investment" and a reprint isn't "new" by any means following the extra 17(?) copies on 20.5.

Just a thought, anyhow... ^^

LOL!

Yeah, where is the sign-up sheet for that one!


Joseph,

Thank you for the info on the .pdf version. And thank you for making the .pdf available.

And thank you Senor Taco for the excellent 1E module.

BTW, could you link me to the forum in the Aceaum that is pissing and moaning about the small print run. As a collector I'd love to hear what they have to say.

Rockin module Lord of Mexican Food!!!!

Ben "do I win something for guessing the tournament winner?" Waxman

p.s. You should ask Joe to post the maps that I made for you to share with the community! Pretty and DEADLY!!! Like peanut butter and chocolate!

Calling Superfan:

Here is the linky. Note that the linky is to page 7 of the thread, which is now up to page 10, and is entitled GenCon, It is about time? (Not all 10 pages are about the 1E Iron Crypt, thank God.)

http://www.acaeum.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... &start=120


The pissin' and moanin' begins a page or two before page 7, and I believe it continues on after page 7 as well. I haven't kept up with the later posts, so I don't know how many pages refer to the 1E Iron Crypt conspiracy. heh


You sound like you got a copy of the module from The Man. Is that right? If so, then I'm glad you like it. It does indeed rock.

BTW, did you get my email entitled GenCon report, par deux, and the follow-up emails? I had pretty good session by session write ups, IMHO. In the later email, I included the feedback I got on the event evaluations. It makes for good reading.

Yes Master Burrito, I did indeed get the stories from your module. Hilarious and informative reading.

Kept thinking while I was reading "thank god I mapped the module instead of playing IN the module"

I would have made those deaths from the punk kid/Ranger look like play from Clan Yeoman. :D

Don't have the module yet, but I'm hopeful. Still, If I don't get mine, it will be fun to listen to the moans of others.

Rock on Lord Enchilada!

Ben

I ordered 3 of them off the bat, but I'm thinking of picking up a dozen more. A few years from now I could see a lot of people finding out about this module and wanting one.
Anyone else think so?

Well, I'm probably biased...(heh!)...But, yeah, I think this module will only become more sought after as time passes. I had planned on buying quite a few extra copies, but some of the folks that I was buying for ordered their own copies.

So, as it turns out I ordered a bakers dozen (13 copies), only 7 of which are to go to specific people. The remaining half dozen are for me to hold onto for a while. I may place another "speculative" order before the order cutoff.

Those guys at the Aceaum were a bit hot under the collar but they seem to be cooling down with time. I'm trying to soothe their savagery by offering to mail any disappointed collectors copies of all my modules. However, they must mail me a signed affidavit of support for Goodman Games first.

Sigh......the work of a "superfan" is never done.
:)

p.s. If nothing else, I think the interest in this conversion module proves that Goodman Games should continue to support limited prints of conversions of some of their best modules. I'd buy them, and I know that many others would as well. Let's hope Joe gives the idea some thought.

I don't care that they are ticked off. I was ticked off that they bought so many I didn't have a chance to get one. So now I get one! :D

I ordered 2 of these. Have they gone to the printers yet? Didn't see any notes about them on the site, and I was just wondering when to expect.

I'm supposed to receive them from the printer this week. As soon as I get them, they'll be shipped out to customers!

How is the shipping going? I'm looking forward to seeing this module in all it's 1st edition AD&D glory. (That's still the best incarnation of the game!)

Most of them have gone out already, earlier this week. Unfortunately there were some damages to part of the shipment so they couldn't all go out! I can't help but think, "What else can go wrong?" Luckily, the printer is very understanding; they are sending replacements via overnight delivery, so by next week all orders should be shipped.

Thanks for the reply. Working in a bookstore, I know all about damages to printed material. I swear we have ogres working part-time in various freighting companies!
