What’s In A Reprint? The Complete Guide to DCC 2nd Printings (And 3rd and 4th and….)


Everything old can be new again. When it comes to second—or later—printings on Dungeon Crawl Classics modules, this is definitely true.

At Gen Con 2018, we debuted two new reprint editions, and at our What’s New With Goodman Games Seminar we announced the exciting new version of The Chained Coffin that will be heading your way. But what exactly do we do with most of our reprints? Glad you asked!

For every new printing, we do a fresh proofreading. This often catches minor typographical and similar errors. In addition, we give the authors a chance to review their work. They occasionally choose to revise or even re-work sections of the adventure to make it the best it can be. On top of that, we usually review the artwork. On occasion, we’ll swap it out for a new image, and occasionally adjust placement. And finally, we often expand an adventure with related supplemental content in an appendix, or even an entirely new backup adventure or other source material to flesh things out.

Check out our selection of modules that have gone to 2nd or beyond in their printings, and what they have to offer!
