Map of the Northlands of Aereth, the DCC Known Realms

Back in early 2018 I started working on a campaign for the Known Realms of Aereth, the campaign setting for the original 3E Dungeon Crawl Classics line. Being me, of course, the first thing I had to do was set up a Hexographer map of the Northlands; nine maps, each hex 25 miles across, covering pret...

Re: What are your top 10 DCC third-party products?

Hey all, I came to this folder to post exactly this same question! Can we get some updates? It's been several years since the majority of the lists were made, and I know a bunch of stuff has come out since then. What is the new hotness? What are the classics that have held up to the test of time? Wh...

Re: Aerth setting form DCC #35 relevant to DCC RPG adventure

Aereth certainly can be used as the backdrop for most of the DCC RPG DCC modules, just as it was the backdrop for the original 3E DCC modules (both pre and post Gazetteer). Here is a link to where the original DCC modules were all placed. Here is a link to my post wherein I placed many of the origin...

Re: A thought or two on Race & Class

Indeed, this was essentially my line of thinking with the "Race and Class" post elsewhere... essentially, many of the "typical" demihuman traits are particular and common to most of the members of those races because they follow the same traditional training regimen ... not necessarily because they ...

Re: Race separate from Class

I've just been reading the book so far, but I'd already come to the conclusion that my players would definitely want the opportunity to play something other than just a "dwarf," "elf, or "halfling" regardless of how much my personal proclivities go in that direction due to my starting out with that ...

As mentioned elsewhere, you can add or subtract any deities or whole pantheons you wish, or use wholly different gods entirely. For my Known Realms, for example, I use the gods straight out the original "Deities & Demigods" (the first print, with the Cthulhui and Melnibonean mythos) plus the "generi...
