It’s a Battle Royale tournament pitting PC against PC — for DCC!
It started as a virtual tournament for Spawn of the Cyclops Con (watch the whole thing on YouTube!), assumed the solidity of an impressive ziggurat at this year’s Gen Con, and now, thanks to the Goodman Games 2021 Yearbook, you can run the game at home or over the internet with our included Virtual Table Top map and token tile pack!
The Goodman Games 2021 Yearbook not only gives you all the tools you need to play Pits of Lost Agharta as a sequence of one-off tournament style games, including the special rules for Misfortunes, random tables for crystals and corpse piles, and the special events voted on by the Lords of the Pit, but also tons of alternate variant rules and even ways to use the scenario as part of a larger DCC RPG campaign. Also included with every purchase is a set of 17 hand-painted tiles depicting all the elements of the game; the PCs, the giants and warlock and bat swarms, objects like corpse piles, skull columns, magic crystals, and useable ballistae — even the Ziggurat itself. These tiles are part of the digital download that comes with every Yearbook, and can be used in your favorite Virtual Table Top program for some fast and fierce online gaming.
Six 1st level player characters enter — but only one survives to stand atop the ziggurat of the Pits of Lost Agharta in this one-of-a-kind hit DCC battle royale adventure by Harley Stroh. Abducted and imprisoned by the Lords of Agharta and forced to fight for their amusement, the PCs must scale the ziggurat as the sea rises beneath them, survive the perils of circling man-bats and lumbering giants, and ingeniously utilize the random boons of magic crystals and the powerful blast of siege engines to withstand attacks from all sides. How well — and for how long — the PCs cooperate before turning on one another only adds to the tension!
Every player doesn’t just control a lone PC — they also influence global events in the persona of the Lords of the Pit themselves. Vote to advance the NPC giants (or, even, control certain ‘flesh-eating’ PCs!), punish the top-most heroes or threaten those that lag behind . . . events have a way of turning around in quick and dramatic fashion in the Pits.
Will your lowly club armed PC survive to stand victorious atop the Ziggurat? Do you work together to endure the threats the Lords of the Pit throw at you, or attempt to backstab your way to the top? With multiple ways to play and great art assets to take your games online, the Pits of Lost Agharta lets you DCC is a whole new way!
Everything you need to run this adventure is included with the Goodman Games 2021 Yearbook — along with a whole lot more for DCC and 5E gaming!
