“Magic is just science that we don’t understand yet.” ― Arthur C. Clarke.
The folks at Skeeter Green Productions are bringing Crypt of the Science-Wizard to an all-new audience—the DCC/MCC crowd!
This isn’t JUST a conversion, though. Skeeter Green has brought in a couple of Dungeon Crawl Classics vets—Tim Deschene and Jim Wampler—to flesh out the adventure and fine-tune it for the DCC (or MCC!) crowd!
Here’s a description of the adventure from the Kickstarter:
This site-based module is designed to bring you back to the age of pulp adventure, where you can discover the secrets of the hidden tomb of an ancient wizard! Travel great distances to a remote location to unlock the mysteries sealed within an ancient tomb. What harrowing challenges are contained within? Only the bravest and quickest of wit shall survive!
The Crypt of the Science-Wizard is a difficult adventure requiring the players to think about their environment — and requiring the characters to be skilled and lucky. While this adventure is designed for 1st level characters, some of the encounters contained within are beyond typical entry-level characters. Strategy, insight, and puzzle-solving skills serve characters (and players!) better than combat prowess. Some good dice rolls certainly help as well…
Not only can you grab a PDF or softcover edition of this module through the Kickstarter, but there is also an option for a hardcover release! That’s right, you can put this adventure up on the shelf and read the spine. A rarity among adventures, and definitely worth note.
And let’s touch back on something: this adventure is meant to be used with EITHER Dungeon Crawl Classics, OR Mutant Crawl Classics! The unique setting is perfect to be used with either game system, and rules are included for fitting it into either game system smoothly and easily.
The campaign for Crypt of the Science-Wizard is already funded, with a couple of stretch goals met, but there is plenty more that can be added! Some amazing goals are there, plus you can pledge at levels that will garner you some original artwork from the book.
What are you waiting for? Head on over to the Crypt of the Science-Wizard DCC/MCC Kickstarter and become a part of this great new campaign!
