I have decided to throw my hat into the 3PP ring, after working on two projects for DCC. I'm bringing along my co-author on the Patrons book -- Daniel Bishop, and Ken Jelinek, a newcomer to RPG writing, but a man with a Master's in HP Lovecraft (no joke) and a Doctorate in RPGs. Two other contributors are planned from these very forums... I'll reveal that once everything's finalized.
Here's the description: In the Prison of the Squid Sorcerer
is an RPG encounters book intended for use with your favorite Old School RPG, including the Dungeon Crawl Classics Roleplaying Game. (I apologize for hedging here -- since the project has to be approved before it's officially a DCC product, I don't want to make Joseph mad
The base offering is a 32-page softbound book containing 12-14 encounters at 1-2 pages each. The encounters, in addition to being very "Appendix N," each will include a unique monster, magical item, god and/or patron for the DCC roleplaying game. That's 12-14 scenarios with an original concept and original, re-usable content for your DCC RPG game. That's 12-14 adventure hooks for further expansion.
The entire book is richly illustrated by some of the newest and best "old school" artists, and each encounter includes an illustrated map.
And if you like this idea, it only gets better from there. If we can reach our modest targets, the main book doubles to 64 pages, and then we start adding separate, full- length adventures -- four in total if we meet all of our stretch goals. http://www.indiegogo.com/squidsorcerer?a=699890
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing previews of art and content here.
As always, we would appreciate your support.
