|The Purple Planet: Where
tribes of man-beasts wage an endless war
beneath a dying sun. Where mighty death orms
rule the wastes, befouled winds whistle
through ancient crypts, and forests of fungi
flourish in the weirdling light. Where ancient
technologies offer life ... or a quick death.
Bereft of patron, friend or god,
your survival depends on quick wits and a
strong blade. Will you and your companions
stand as conquerers atop this alien land? Or
will you fall beneath the blast of an
ink-black death rays, just another corpse
left to litter the wastes of the Purple
under 48 hours, the
Kickstarter for this new adventure by
Harley Stroh funded -- and in less than a week
it has passed three stretch goals!
- A Dungeon Crawl Classics
adventure module of planetary scope -- at
level 4. The adventure flings your
characters to adventures on a distant world
dying slowly under a weirdling sun.
- The basic pledge funds print+PDF
copy of a boxed set containing Harley
Stroh's 32-page adventure module, plus a
second 32-page campaign booklet -- and
possibly more depending on stretch goals.
- The first softcover book is the
adventure module Peril on the Purple
Planet, which has two built-in special
features. First, the cover art is oversized,
and spreads across front and back cover in
addition to wrapping around to front and
back flaps. The flaps also double as player
handouts when folded out to face the table.
Second, the adventure map is a
three-page-wide hex crawl, which folds out
of the module center as a three-panel
gatefold. Additionally, the adventure
includes a number of B/W interior handouts
to show the players what they face on the
- The second softcover book is a
campaign booklet to expand your journey on
the Purple Planet. At the basic pledge
level, before any stretch goals, it includes
three chapters: Lost Tombs of the
Ancients, Bestiary of the Purple Planet, and
Lost Tech of the Purple Planet, with
contributions from Daniel J. Bishop, Tim
Callahan, Edgar Johnson, and Terry Olson.
- You can support this Kickstarter
by adding on other adventure modules from
the Dungeon Crawl Classics line, most of
which are on sale for 25% off as part of
this Kickstarter. You can also add on Purple
Planet Player Guides at $5 each.
- Stretch goals for this project
will put even more items into the boxed set!
These include the possibility of an ecology
book, additional encounters, a book of
handouts, a book of magic, a custom GM
screen, and a guide to the Purple
Kickstarter page for more details!
