If you got a decent computer and a webcam, I'm probably starting an open gaming concept Campaign of DCC in a month or so. I would love for you to jump in via Google + and if you ever roadtrip to Frenchy country I'm always happy to run or play in a game with fellow gamers.

P.s. Once i'm done with my campaign design, I will probably post an invite/summary on the forum in the appropriate section.

Got the Free RPG module today in Quebec City (No demo though, only lots of Magic players).
It looks marvellous!

I had a great time down at Game Kastle in Santa Clara, CA today. Thanks to Shane, Jason, and the rest of the staff, and everyone who came out! Stephen it was good to finally meet you in person.

I ran the 3rd level adventure for the Free RPG Day giveaway in the store at 2d10 games in Ft Myers Florida today.
The people in the store loved it so much they bought a copy!


Thanks Goodman Games for making such a great game!!!!

I am going to try and run the intro module at Boardwalk in Greenville SC at around 1pm and maybe again or a hight level mod at 5pm, if anyone knows some people in the area who want to try DCC out for the first time.


I used to live in Spartanburg, just north of Greenville, and Boardwalk was my favorite game store. I am glad to see they are still around. :)

I ran the Stardust adventure at Dragons Keep in Provo UT this morning. The people that I played it with were a combination of people from my Pathfinder Game and people from my Castles and Crusades game. I haven't had a chance to really master the rules of DCC RPG so we played fairly fast and loose with the rules but everyone had a good time. It definitely had a different feel than either Pathfinder and Castles and Crusades and that was actually pretty cool. One of my more serious Pathfinder players said that DCC RPG had a real sense of fun that she didn't find with Pathfinder which is really how I felt too. I don't know if it will become a regular thing that any of my groups play on a regular basis but he certainly was viewed as a breath of fresh air.

My White Plume Mountain adventure was a lot of fun, and I think I sold a copy or three of the game. Spider Climb misfire resulted in the thief and hobbit walking on the ceiling for an hour, which made some things really interesting.

I was able to pick up a copy of the DCC freebie - there were 3 left at the end of a long day (at Black Diamond Games). Everything else was cleaned out. I believe Aldo G from Impressions was able to make some restock runs, but could be mistaken. It does help to have a distributor local. ;)

Also, BDG had stocked up, and was running a 10% discount. When I arrived around 10 am:

I was able to upgrade my edition to the Limited, thanks to discount and store credit.

I think BDG ran 2 - 3 games of DCC during Free RPG Day. I know there was one going on concurrently with my Conspiracy X game.

My Free RPG Day was a good one. YottaQuest (in Cincinnati) really does a great job. They ordered 4 complete kits and ran something like 19 separate rpg and board game events from 9:30am until midnight.

Anyone could take one item, if you played in an event you got another, and if you ran an event you got two more*.

I signed up as a player for The Undulating Corruption (run by adminfoo) and ran The Jeweler That Dealt in Stardust myself. It was a long day (9:30am-7:30pm) but completely worth it.

I played the Dwarf from the pregens in The Undulating Corruption. Dwarves are rapidly becoming my favorite DCC RPG class/race. Jim Wampler, who does the Marvin the Mage webcomic, played the corrupted Wizard. The other two players were new to DCC RPG, but seemed to really dig it. They particularly loved the crit and fumble tables.

I won’t spoil the adventure, but we were successful in slaying the monster (thanks to the Cleric rolling a natural 20 on his spell check for Bolt From The Blue (91 points of damage!) but the Wizard remained corrupted (actually more corrupted, due to rolling a 1 the first time he tried to cast a spell).

I had 4 players for The Jeweler That Dealt in Stardust. Each one chose one of the official pregens and I randomly assigned them a 3rd level Thief generated using the indispensable Purple Sorcerer Upper Level Character Generator**.

Only one of the players (who chose the Cleric) had any prior experience w/ DCC RPG. Fortunately they all took to it like ducks to water. Mid-session two of the four went over to the register and bought dice on the spot even though I had brought 4 sets.

Again, no spoilers, but a good time appeared to be shared by all. Lots of spontaneous cheers and high fives.

*I took an extra copy of the DCC adventures for my GF (she’s credited as a playtester for TJtDiS) and I got her a Q-Workshop D6.

**Seriously, in·dis·pen·sa·ble. if you haven't already backed his Kickstarter project, you really, really should.

Sounds (and looks) like great fun Rick! I'm glad you found the upper-level character generator useful. (And thanks for the shout-out about the Kickstarter. We're up to 65%!)

1. Look for a post by Doug Kovacs or do a goodle search on Doug. In his signature, or in google, you can find his website. (Or just go directly to [url=dougkovacs.com]dougkovacs.com[/url] if you don't enjoy the hunt :P)
2. Look for "Dungeon Crawl Classics original art sale" and click. There are small pictures of Doug's art for sale, but if you click on them they enlarge. Copy the image into Word and print.

You're welcome. 8)

I was totally just going to post this!
Just for fun go type Buffalo NY into the FreeRPG day event map and take a look. Its a giant dead zone.
I live in St. Catharines, ON, which is just over the boarder.
My FLGS is doing nothing, and doesn't even have anything DCC. This whole area is blighted by the scourge that is Warhammer. :|


Rochester, NY, just a little over an hour away from Buffalo, is also in that dead zone. SOOO ANGRY. :evil:

(That, plus I had to work so wouldn't have been able to attend anyway.)

Marv pretty much spelled it out. I'd add that to really make the colors pop, laminate them. Yes, those customize-able screens such as the one I own have clear plastic sleeves but (for whatever reason) taking the extra step to laminate the images individually really makes 'em look good.

Neat. I never thought of that! 8)

I ended up running The Jeweler That Dealt in Stardust from the FreeRPG day mod over Google+ Hangouts earlier this week for a group of five. We had a great time! I wrote up the experience on my blog (very slight spoilers for those that have not read it or played it):

I played in my first DCC session on June 30th and had a great time. I intend to run a DCC demo at my FLGS before year's end.

I came by and had my limited edition foil signed by you! Thanks for taking the time to hang out with the fans! I apologize if I seemed very quiet - I don't usually get starstruck, but in that moment, I lost everything I wanted to say, and also didn't want to capitalize on all of your time. I did appreciate the free RPG day handout and the signature, though!

The game does grow on you, eh?

I find that folks start out intimidated by the rulebook size but then totally forget that stuff when play begins. Kind of like when I played Amber Diceless with Erick Wujcik, and after playing for a couple hours he asked folks what they thought about playing without dice -- folks were shocked that they had totally forgotten that they didn't have any. DCC does that, where you kind of expect complexity then you don't get any.

I ran four zero-levels with two surviving. Looks like my human cutpurse will opt for a career as a wizard since I really want to take the magic rules for a test drive. 8)

I had to buy the "free adventure " on EBay, but still worth it.
