Wow. ZineQuest is a success! Let it be known that February 2019 is apparently now The Month of DCC Kickstarters! One of them is ending, two are in the middle, and two are just beginning. It’s a fabulous time to be a Dungeon Crawl Classics fan!
Let’s take a moment to look at each one individually.
We previously told you about The Lesser Key to the Celestial Legion and the Kickstarter to support it’s launch by Psychoda Press. Now the time is short, and if you are wanting to get in on the ground floor with this guide to the gods and goddesses of the game, you only have hours to act!
The Lesser Key to the Celestial Legion has over 35 tables, is filled with art by the talented team of Wayne Snyder, Dan Domme, Jayna Pavlin, Craig Brasco, Adam B Forman, Sam Stroud, Stefan Poag, and Sean McCoy, and is specifically written to be compatible with DCC RPG.
Head on over now! You only have a tiny window of time remaining to get involved!
Ghostlike Crime is a tabletop role-playing game zine bringing magical realism, the paranormal, and cryptid terrors to a modern day dystopia using Dungeon Crawl Classics rules. The adventurers are monster hunters and defenders of humanity from paranormal threats. They are not a part of any government program, but an autonomous and clandestine group that also works to keep power out of the hands of oppressors.
This out of the world new zine by Orbital Intelligence brings the idea of alien invasion down to earth. Portals opening around the world are seeing the otherworldly appear, and what’s more, revealing some humans as a little more than just your neighbor.
Terror of the Stratosfiend is meant to be both an add-on to any Dungeon Crawl Classics session the Judge and players would be running—adding a splash of tentacles. It’s also being built to be a standalone setting where tentacles and sorcery would be the focus. So if you are wanting to add in a touch of the otherworldly, this is a great Kickstarter to support.
Creator Ariel Churi has done something a little different with For Glory #1: The Hexanomicon. Unlike most zines, this one presents a set of tools that allows the Judge to create a setting from a blank map and a series of stickers that create the world around them.
And it’s not just a basic map, either. Each section has an alignment, and that alignment can change. The party may bring the light of justice to an area. I usually decide the hex alignment myself but it may be determined randomly. There are rules for determining the hex alignment based on luck or you can also determine the landscape randomly.
Studio 9 Games is back with another fantastic looking adventure module. Reckoning of the Gods / Into the Shadow Realm is from the same folks who brought you Greenwood of the Fey Sovereign, and it looks to have the same high-quality focus as their first adventure.
Reckoning of the Gods / Into the Shadow Realm is a 32-page stand-alone book built for Dungeon Crawl Classics, and is not just AN adventure. This book features a pair of adventures that overlap and create two distinct environments. The adventures are fashioned for 6-8 characters averaging 3rd level. There are a few deadly encounters which have to be navigated creatively, while groups purely interested in swordplay will find themselves creating new characters in short order.
That’s FIVE DCC RPG third-party Kickstarters that are currently live. What a glorious time to be a fan!
