|This weekend is your last chance to
get in on the Kickstarter for Harley Stroh's Peril
on the Purple Planet.
- It just passed its NINTH stretch
boxed set will include a GM screen specific to
the Purple Planet! This is on top of all the
previous stretch goals: The Purple
Underplanet, Magic of the Purple
Planet, Mysteries of the Purple
Planet detailing at least 50 adventure
hooks and random encounters, the 12 pages of
player handouts, the expanded Ecology of
the Kith, and the Tombs of the
Ancients chapter in the campaign guide
that is being expanded with a fifth
mini-dungeon! And of course this is in
addition to the basic adventure module (with
gatefold map and wraparound three-panel
cover), and the starting booklets: Bestiary
of the Purple Planet, Lost
Tech of the Ancients, and Tombs of
the Ancients. All crammed into one

the Dungeon Crawl Classics line, most of
which are on sale for 20% off as part of
this Kickstarter. You can also add on Purple
Planet Player Guides at $5 each.

Purple Planet Poster: an image of the cover
art with logos/text removed, approximately
36" wide x 15" tall. Also the collectible
button: a simple button 1-1/4" wide x 2-3/4"
tall, with the "front image" of the cover
art. (Our second collectible button, after
the one for Chained Coffin.) And see the
blurb below about point-five modules!

|Goodman Games Announces 5E
We are very excited to announce a new line of
adventure modules fully compatible with the fifth
edition of the world's first fantasy RPG, and ready to
play in your home campaign! These modules will
be on sale at Gen Con! Visit our booth at
Gen Con to be the first to buy an advance copy!
Edition Fantasy #1: Glitterdoom
A level 3 adventure for 5E, by Michael Curtis
Centuries ago, the glitterdoom came to the
dwarves of Steelhand Clan! This divine curse
transformed the dwarves into hellish forms with
an insatiable greed for gold. Now, a chance
encounter breaks open long-sealed gates to
unleash the glitterdoom again. Can your
adventurers delve into the forgotten halls to
confront the subterranean menace?
This all-new 5E adventure module includes a new
dwarf sub-race and a new PC background!
Edition Fantasy #2: The Fey Sisters' Fate
A level 1 adventure for 5E, by Chris Doyle
The cries of battle echo in the rustic
wilderness, as a pair of fey sisters defend the
ancient Briarwood against invaders. When the
town of Bur Hollow sends militia men to support
their fey allies, they disappear without a
trace. The adventurers must enter the Briarwood
and save them!
This all-new 5E adventure module includes two
new spells and a new PC background!

We have two exciting announcements planned
for Gen Con. What are they? Only one way
to find out: attend our "What's New With
Goodman Games" seminar! It's Friday night
at 8:00 PM (Crowne Plaza, Conrail Stn

are a lot of fun. The whole gang will be

working on. And of course, we announce new
products. At Gary Con we were joined by
special guest James M. Ward to announce
Alpha deluxe collector's edition (click

planned related to deluxe hardcovers. And
these announcements require not one, but
two special guests! You won't want to miss

Kickstarting a new book that will be of use to
many: The Storyteller's Thesaurus. Writers,
game designers, teachers, and students -- this
is the book you've been waiting for! Written
by storytellers for storytellers, the
Storyteller's Thesaurus offers an entirely new
approach to finding that word you always need!
Words that are crucial in
fantasy, history, and horror.
No other thesaurus is like this: the
Storyteller's Thesaurus names weapons, armor,
magical items, mystical creatures, symbols,
treasures, and descriptive terms essential for
any genre. There are usage notes and writing
tips to clarify and expand. The authors draw
from decades of work to target areas of
concern for beginning writers as well as
