DCC Around The World, Part Two

Yesterday we showed you some pictures of the Goodman Games gang promoting DCC in some amazing places, and today we’re back with even more! These photos were compiled with the assistance of our DCC translation partners. They include DCC in the Burg Vondern, a 13th century castle in Germany, and two locations in Spain: Casa de Cisneros in Spain (which would be perfectly at home in Punjar—picture scoundrels running about the...

Young Reavers: Running DCC RPG For Kids

A lot of us running Dungeon Crawl Classics have been playing since its inception in 2012, and a few of us can even recall what gaming was like back in 1974. But some of our most fervent players were in kindergarten or preschool when DCC rolled out, and are only now coming of age as tabletop gamers. In preparation for this holiday season when family time is upon us, we spoke with Harley Stroh to see how he runs games for the next...

Real Life Adventures: Doug and Wayne Visit the Frazetta Museum

It can be argued that the single most influential artist of the 20th century was Frank Frazetta. He is one of the most famous illustrators of the 20th century, with works that ranged from comics and advertising, to book covers and film designs and storyboards. For many, he is thought of as an iconic illustrator of Conan. Even in the realm of the classic fantasy genre most commonly associated him with, his career went much further. He...

How Wayne Built The Gen Con Obelisks of Doom

Doom. DOOOOOM! One of the most popular features of our Gen Con booth is the DCC imagery. Fans love the painted back drops, the artist booths, and seeing all the amazing new art. In 2017 they loved the Gong of Doom, and its use to let all know another brave soul had fallen. As you approached the Gen Con booth in 2018, you were greeted by the latest prizes of The Dark Master. This year the newest additions were The...

Zine Scene Revisited

The Zine Scene By Daniel J. Bishop Last year, Goodman Games brought you A Brief History of DCC Zines. As those of us who love this game know, Dungeon Crawl Classics has an active do-it-yourself community. While this isn’t uncommon in the OSR as a whole, DCC is even more open to the do-it-yourself vibe than most games out there. It is written to both encourage and enforce creativity. Judges need to create new monsters and magic items,...

Roadworthy: Ogrebeef – Second Helping!

Have you heard about The Gong of Doom? It’s the way we announce another soul has passed from our DCC Team Tournament at Gen Con. Every time a PC dies, the player has to do the Walk of Shame to bang the gong. The sound of the gong symbolizes the sound of the gods reclaiming the PCs’ soul back to the afterlife. At the 2018 Gen Con DCC Team Tournament The Gong of Doom resounded throughout the day and paved the way to a dramatic...

Real Life Adventures: Quest for the Wizard Van

Real Life Adventures: Quest for the Wizard Van By Dieter Zimmerman As many fans know, Goodman Games has quested for many years in search of a wizard van. Nothing would make us more happy than rolling up to the game store in a 1970’s-style van with bubble windows and a wizard mural painted on the side. And of course we’d run games out of the back at Gen Con! Our 2015 Gen Con Program Guide  even featured a digital mockup of our...

A Brief History of DCC Zines

A Brief History of DCC Zines By Daniel J. Bishop Something about the do-it-yourself nature of Dungeon Crawl Classics has led to a plethora of zines. Whether they are old or new, have put out many issues or few, these zines provide insights into their creator’s visions for that multi-faceted jewel which is DCC RPG. The great-grandaddy of them all, Crawl! Fanzine, came out in May of 2012, hot on the heels of the game itself. Crawl! has...
