New to DCC? We’d like to invite you to a party . . .
The party that is Third-Party Publishing! Goodman Games allows publishers to produce their own material that is fully compatible with Dungeon Crawl Classics or Mutant Crawl Classics — which means that, in addition to the wealth of material for our games produced in-house, there is an entire world of daring, original, and outside-the-box content for DCC/MCC created by fans like you!
One look at the Current DCC/MCC Compatible Third-Party Publisher page is enough to indicate just how popular these indie-published books, supplements, and adventures are with GG gamers around the world. So, if you’re a new fan that is thinking about taking that extra step to share your campaign creations with the larger community, consider applying for the FREE DCC/MCC third-party license and get to work on your dream today!
We offer a formal license and an official logo to attach to your product to show that it is something that will work with our games—and, yes, it really is FREE.
In addition to the current kickstarters linked above, check out some recent releases that our now in our online store: books like The Stennard Courier, Scions of the Computarchs, or Orcs! A High Octane Adventure to see an example of the kinds of content you could create! Yes, you can even create books that are for BOTH DCC RPG and MCC RPG.
The most important criteria for obtaining the license is simply that we believe you are producing quality material of interest to our fans. The goal of this is to foster creativity and ensure DCC/MCC fans have a great source of constantly evolving new options for their games. We believe the game is what YOU want it to be, and we “put our money where our mouth is” in that regard by offering this free license.
On top of that, in order to subsidize the process, we purchase hard copies of the finished product direct from the publishers so that we can offer them for sale on our website. One type of publication that is near and dear to our hearts are those made by the DIY creators out there who want to create zines and other low-budget books so they can share their ideas and vision. We love to see the amazing creativity of our fans on display, no matter the cost that goes into the finished product. We want your games to come alive!
And maybe you’ll have the next big hit, making it to our list of the Best-Selling DCC & MCC Zines of 2021, Best Selling MCC RPG Third Party Supplements of 2021, or Best Selling DCC RPG Third Party Supplements of 2021.
