If you are a resident of Umerica we have some news. There’s something coming over the horizon, and it looks to be pretty big….
The amazing list of third-party DCC Kickstarters keep coming, this time with TWO new books for the Umerica setting from Shield of Faith Studios—and maybe more, depending on how successful the Kickstarter goes. So get ready for The Umerican Road Atlas and Umerica Unnatural!
The Umerican Road Atlas takes you all over this irradiated land and shows you what’s what. Written by Reid San Filippo and Bob Brinkman, this book includes:
- Interesting Places to Die
- Infamous Gangs of the Wastes
- The Random Gang Generator
- New Vehicle Rules: construction and military vehicles
- New Classes: holy roller, hunter, and road hawg
- New Vehicular-based Mighty Deeds
Umerica is a place full of weird supernatural mysteries, and Umerica Unnatural covers them all. Written by Reid San Filippo and Forrest Aguirre, this book includes:
- Revised and Expanded Psionic rules
- Grimoire of the Wastes: over a dozen new spells for wizards and clerics
- New Classes: wasteland psion, psi mutant, beastkin, shifter
- Cache of Astonishing Salvage: new equipment and artifacts of technology, magic, and just plain weirdness
Umerica is a gonzo super science & sorcery post-apocalyptic setting for Dungeon Crawl Classics set in a twisted version of North and Central America. It originated in the Crawling Under a Broken Moon fanzine but The Umerican Survival Guide is a fully revised and fleshed out version of the setting.
Both of the books in this Kickstarter look to offer an impressive 128 pages of material, and there is the potential of much more, depending on how far the Kickstarter goes. Head on over and check it out!
Of course, that isn’t the only active Kickstarter….
Adding to the impressive list is The Exodus of Wolfbane from Gaming Honors.
This Kickstarter is less than a week old, and presents a brand-new 0-2 level adventure from the same folks who brought you The Peasant’s Fell Bargain . This sweeping adventure doesn’t just end at the conclusion of the 0-level funnel, but continues well past as your characters explore the situation in front of them.
Here’s an excerpt from their Kickstarter:
The module features a hefty 56 pages of adventure, illustrations, player handouts, and supplements, including the popular Encounter Cards we introduced in our first project, The Peasants’ Fell Bargain . Your peasants will become hardened heroes as they battle strange monsters, harsh elements, and the king’s cruel soldiers. You will grapple with mysteries, hauntings, moral dilemmas, and death-defying chases.
They’ve already met their base goal, so the module is happening! Now it’s up to you to see it through and help fulfill some of the stretch goals
The amazing cavalcade of third-party DCC Kickstarters continues, adding another new one to the list. This time out it’s from The Keep Studios, the same folks who brought us Sword in the Jungle Deep.
Soul For the Ocean Dark is the new 0-level adventure funnel for Dungeon Crawl Classics that has the characters starting out with a simple task: save the world. Set in a world without a sun, this adventure puts the would-be adventurers on a path to restore the only light the world has ever known, and all of the challenges that go along with it.
Here’s a description from their Kickstarter page:
Players will create characters from a dark and isolated world which has never known a sun. A towering, mystical lighthouse provides the closest thing to natural light for this world. Since time immemorial, it has pushed back against the oppressive darkness of the Void, providing salvation from the endless horrors that await in the dark. Suddenly, the world is plunged into darkness. With the hope of their people on their shoulders, and sputtering torches in their hands, the players must seek the missing light.
This Kickstarter has already reached its goal. Now it’s just a matter of seeing how many stretch goals can be met before the whole thing ends. Head on over to their Kickstarter page to show your love and support!
