Fantastic Functions for the D50
For years, legendary gaming icon Colonel Lou
Zocchi has sold the esoteric 50-sided die at his
convention booths. Now Goodman Games brings you,
at long last, Fifty Fantastic Functions for the
D50! This entertaining book contains more than
50 entries describing how to use the D50.
Ranging from randomized tables to customized
game mechanics, this book will ensure everyone
at your table can't wait to use their D50! If
you don't have a D50 yet, you can still use the
book by rolling D% and dividing the result by 2
-- but after a glance through this tome you will
be motivated to run out and buy your own d50!

Crawl Classics #84.2:
Synthetic Swordsmen of the Purple Planet
A level 5 adventure by Jim Wampler
When even the native lifeforms of the Purple
Planet begin to wither and die under the
weirdling sun's punishing rays, you and your
party of interplanetary freebooters quickly
conclude that something is going wrong with the
very sky above your heads. What ancient
mysteries lie in wait for you at the planet's
northern pole, as you explore the timeworn and
failing biosphere plant found sprawling there
amongst the ice peaks? Will you save your harsh
but adopted home, or hasten its eventual doom?
This adventure features new background material
that expands the campaign setting, including a
new House of Ascended Masters, new weapons and
ancient technology to plunder, and a surprising
new species of Kith warriors.

at Old Guy
Gaming recently took the plunge into DCC
RPG, and has some great things to say about
"... I felt swept back to 1974. The
artwork, the layout, the overall
presentation really felt like something from
the old magazines you found in a hobby shop
back in the 70's. There was a wave of
nostalgia that I didn't anticipate. I have
to say that it was pretty wonderful. I
didn't expect to ever again recapture that
feeling I had back in the early days, when I
first discovered fantasy role-playing games."

gaming", check out Judge Carrie's first time
running a DCC game all on her own at Living4Crits!
Make sure you watch the video; it's possibly

In World-Quest, the PCs are thrust into a
lost, "living morality tale." They have to
explore six chapters of the tale and interpret
what they see to a god. Their re-counting
works like a great, big cosmic game of
"Telephone," fueling a ritual that changes the
very nature of their world! The changes affect
the Judge's campaign setting in terms of both
narrative and game mechanics.
This module weighs in at a
whopping 50 pages of content!
- A 28-page adventure,
- Two new Patrons -- the
Devil-Wraith of Grim Inchyron and The
Logos of Lamushea (complete with Invoke
Patron and Patron Taint tables and new
Patron Spells), and
- A new class, a race of elf-kin
called the Zvarts.
Carnival of the Damned
by David Baity
In this new funnel adventure
Sorcerer Games, a band of villagers
are trapped in a mist-shrouded carnival in
the dead of night, facing death at every
turn. Can they survive twisted oddities like
the corpse-filled Tunnel of Love and the
dreaded Bone Coaster?
Filled with fantastic art, the
Carnival of the Damned unleashes nightmares
into any campaign, with encounters refined
and polished by the anguished screams of
hundreds of players at conventions like
Dragon Con and Gary Con!
For judges, the adventure fills
many needs: author David Baity has crafted
over 30 encounters and dozens of random
threats. There is enough content for days of
tournament play, or judges can select a
smaller collection of favorite dangers for a
quick DCC funnel session. For sandbox-style
play, judges can extract individual
encounters whenever a twisted challenge is
needed in any old school system. There's
even a haunting backstory for those looking
to integrate the adventure into an extended
And there's clowns. Lots and
lots of clowns.
