Events for New DCC Players at War of the Cyclops Con!

The Cyclops is rolling out the red carpet for you!

This weekend’s War of the Cyclops Con has many games and events that are specifically for New Players. Whether you are coming from another game system, returning to gaming after a break, or Dungeon Crawl Classics is your first RPG, we’ve got a New DCC Players Welcome Track just for you!

Firstly, there are three events this Saturday of particular relevance to new players — a Twitch program that help bridge the gap between 5E and DCC for new players just trying the latter, and a DCC 101 interactive Question and Answer session at Gather.Town (link will be posted on the front page of the website during the convention).

Of course, we also have a full gaming track just for New Players! You can search the New DCC Players Welcome Track at Table Top Events (which is also where you get your Badges and Tickets for the convention), or simply click the name of the Open Game below to learn more about each gaming session. Games in our New DCC Players Welcome Track are run by experienced Judges who love to teach the DCC system, and are a relaxed and fun way to have a learning game or two in the company of other players learning DCC for the first time.

But hurry — seats are filling up fast and the convention is less than 48 hours away!
