Re: 5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

The PDF has been released to backers. PDF says page count of 34, but that probably includes covers and such. (1) Short introduction of how Nehwon fits into the history of D&D (2) Chronological listing of source material (books, stories, poems, and where to find them) (3) Part One: Nehwonian Nast...

Re: Connect the dots here

I thought that part of the interview was interesting as well, but I never quite understood Moorcock's position on the use of the Melnibone mythos. If he gave TSR permission to use it, and also gave Chaosium permission to use it, why back off when litigation happened between the two? Why not just say...

Re: Connect the dots here

Watched the Moorcock interview. Fun, but I really had hoped for a DCC Elric announcement, which never happened. I think Elric (and Moorcock's other Multiverse characters) would make an excellent DCC setting. Fingers crossed that someday we get this. ;)

Connect the dots here

I will confess that I don't _know_ anything here, but I have a couple of thoughts to put together.... (1) Michael Moorcock interview on twitch. (2) Goodman blog on monsters in the Elric books. So ... connecting the dots I'm speculating that we may see DCC Elric soon? :shock: Thoughts? Am I nuts here...

Re: 5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

Thanks for the "from the source" information. I'll probably buy a copy through Indigogo to support Lankhmar and support Goodman Games, but I'm still kind of bummed. :(

Re: 5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

Well, I had really hoped for a 5E hardback chock full of Lankhmar goodness. A bit different from a 20-24 page pamphlet. Not sayin' the thing won't be good stuff, but I had this mental image which is hard to reconcile with the actuality. :-( That plus Indigogo instead of KS... well I may wait until t...

Re: 5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

I would have liked to have seen a DCC version. :? I'm confused. There already is a DCC Lankhmar. Is that what you are looking for? Over a dozen modules, Lannkhmar campaign boxed set, "Greatest Thieves of Lankhmar" boxed set, and so on. This was a 5E adaptation of some of the same content....

Re: 5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

True, so the cost is in line with those products. I guess I had hoped for a hardback like a lot of other 5E stuff on the market.

5E Magic and Monsters of Lankhmar

Just looking at the Indigogo page, which just went live today.
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/magi ... ar-for-5e/

Print plus PDF is only $10? Any idea why this book is so cheap? Softcover at 20-24 pages isn't quite what I had hoped for.

Re: MCC... campaign setting?

I have some old maps from the TSR RPG Gamma World and I use those as the basis of my setting. I think you can really do a campaign anywhere, but I like to start my players out near their home town so it starts out familiar, yet changed.

There‘s meaning 4 which might make more sense in context of Lankhmar and Leibers stories.

I agree 10%. Lahnmar is pretty much "low fantasy" from the get-go and it's a fun set of rules as well. Give it a look!

Re: New Judge Here Question About Old Modules

Since we're talking old (pre-DCC RPG) modules, I would love to see DCC RPG conversions of all the old material! Seems like a low-effort move that would dramatically increase the amount of DCC RPG canon, especially for those of us who aren't as into Lankhmar and the other product lines that have bee...

Re: Will we see more TSR Classics instead of Judge's Guild?

Their best material is top-notch, their worst is highly cringe-worthy. JG was known for being very up-and-down as far as the quality of their products, so I wouldn't just look at one random product and then make a decision about the company. Both Dark Tower and Caverns of Thracia are considered to ...

Re: PLEASE - the Giants/Drow series neeeexxxxxttttt!

Since WotC did their own Giants hardback not so many years ago, I suspect that GG has less enthusiasm for that project compared to a few others. No advantage in competing with WotC on this.

I think that many of the best TSR modules have already gotten OAR treatment, and some of the others have gotten WotC treatment.

Re: Question on new Lankhmar 5E book and magic.

The downside, of course, is that Goodman Games will only invest a certain amount of resources to the Lankhmar IP, so if they are producing more 5E Lankhmar that means probably less DCC Lankhmar. :( There are separate 5e and DCC creative teams, so I don't imagine it actually slows anything down -- i...

Re: Question on new Lankhmar 5E book and magic.

I think that the Lord of the Rings 5E rules (Adventures in Middle-earth) are an excellent example of how 5E can make a world come alive in ways not the same as the standard core rulebook. The way AiMe put a culture/race spin on classes, for example, gives a solid Middle-earth spin to the rules. The ...
