Re: Is the Golden Auroch/Black Pearl...

Wow, this sounds cool.

Goodman Games is awesome for doing these 1E conversions... I just wish more of the DCCs could be converted throughout the year. Say, the top 6 best selling DCCs get converted each year (one every other month)? I know I'm dreaming but, hey, what the heck.

Battlemaps for DCC7?

I tried to download the battlemaps for Secret of Smugglers Cove but its a no go. Does anyone still have these or can someone fix the link at Prester's Maps and Charts Emporium?

Looks like someone kept their supply of DCC 51.5 to themselves to sell on eBay. This guy has 2 for sale, and already sold one last week: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZcaptians1mateQQhtZ-1 I hope it isn't a store that decided to not give them away, but to try to make a profit on eBay. :evil: Dude...

I picked this up too... it's a great boxed set. Good choice of modules to string together into a campaign.

And last but not least, it's only $20. You can't beat that!

As for binding, since the page count rose to 80 pages, this will be a perfect bound book. Reading this I thought of something. :idea: It would have been cool to see this project released as three (3) separate modules each with the classic TSR monochrome covers of yore like the original D or G serie...

One of the ones that surprised me, was Crypt of the Devil Lich. Playing the 4 hour wekly sessions, it still took 6 sessions to complete.

Castle Whiterock Introduction

Nice to see Castle Whiterock featured on the Goodman Games Homepage and in the coming soon section...

Average number of sessions per module?

I know this will vary quite a bit depending on the group but let's assume that a group of gamers meets twice a week for gaming sessions that last about 3 - 5 hours each. We will also assume that the gaming group consists of one DM and four players who each control one PC. Given that, how long do you...

Revenge of the Rat King

I was wondering if you could use Revenge of the Rat King as a stand alone module?

I know its sort of a sequel to DCC#1 Idyss of the Rat King but can it be run easily on its own? Has anyone ever tried it?

I'm curious about the 1E conversion process. Does anyone know if just the core 1E books were used to make the conversion or if other books like the 1E Unearthed Arcana were used as well (for spells, classes, the new version of the paladin, etc...) Personally, I hope that just the core books were use...

I think I'll probably just sell it. Everyone here probably already grabbed a copy when it first came out.

Ok, so I have a mint 2nd print copy of the 1st Edition version of Iron Crypt of the Heretics and I'm looking to trade it for something else. I'd be interested in getting a new or almost new copy of Vault of the Dragon Kings. I'm also interested in The Blackguards Revenge and The Secret of Smugglers ...

Ironically, a bigger company like WotC might have a tougher time pulling off something like Whiterock because they might have to justify the use of so many resources to Hasbro.

I hope whiterock is not like Undermountain... it would definitely keep me from buying it.

You know, I would have been much more interested in the 2E Ruins of Undermountain and the Expedition to Undermountain if TSR/Wizards had actually developed it more... as many others have said about those products, too many empty rooms.
