The Winners of the Return to the Starless Sea

The Winners of the Return to the Starless Sea by Terry Olson This year that shall not be named has assailed us with challenges and hardship, but briefly, over one hundred players left it all behind to Return to the Starless Sea!

An Update on “Return to the Starless Sea,” our DCC Gen Con Tournament

Earlier this year we announced the tournament for Gen Con 2020—Return to the Starless Sea. Since that announcement, life has kinda changed around us. Gen Con has canceled its physical presence, and announced that it is going strictly online. Which means that we—obviously—won’t be having a physical tournament. That does NOT, however, mean that we won’t be doing the tournament at all. Return to the Starless Sea is still...

The Names On The Doom Gong

The Gong of Doom has quickly become an icon for the Goodman Games crowd. It’s echoing sound ringing through the hallways as a harbinger of another fallen comrade during the Team Tournament. It’s both wonderful and ominous at the same time. It has another purpose, too. On the columns of the Gong, we’ve added plaques to commemorate the winners of the Team Tournament, both at Gen Con and, as of this year, Origins as...

Gen Con 2019: A Recap of The Gen Con DCC Team Tournament

The Greatest Thieves in Lankhmar brought the Gen Con Team Tournament to the infamous City of the Black Toga. The tournament ranged from the hot cellars beneath Thieves’ House, to the sooty rooftops, and concluded with a mad dash through the palace of the Overlord.  Characters died alone, lost beneath Thieves’ House, as their torches burnt out, one by one. Slayers stalked the city in search of the PCs, even as washer-mongers took...
