Fifth Edition Fantasy Kickstarter is Live!

Fifth Edition Fantasy Banner

Goodman Games is very excited to support the world's first fantasy role playing game in its fifth edition! This Kickstarter expands our ongoing Fifth Edition Fantasy line with two new adventure modules, and possibly a third for Free RPG Day!

Goodman Games is the only third party publisher to continuously support Dungeons & Dragons in every edition since 3E. Since the earliest days of the Open Game License and D20 License, we have published compatible materials for 3.0, 3.5, and 4E -- and even the occasional 1E module as a convention special. And now it's time for 5E!

  • This Kickstarter funds the publication of two adventure modules for our Fifth Edition Fantasy line: The Pillars of Pelagia by Chris Doyle and War-Lock by Michael Curtis. With stretch goals, we would also like to give backers a third adventure from our Free RPG Day release.
  • Depending on funding levels and stretch goals cleared, the adventures may be enhanced with additional content, including bonus encounters and setting material.
  • Finally, we would like your feedback on what YOU want for Fifth Edition. We invite backers to comment on what they would like Goodman Games to publish for our next 5E Kickstarter!

Peril on the Purple Planet DCC #84: Peril on the Purple Planet

The Purple Planet: Where tribes of man-beasts wage an endless war beneath a dying sun. Where mighty death orms rule the wastes, befouled winds whistle through ancient crypts, and forests of fungi flourish in the weirdling light. Where ancient technologies offer life ... or a quick death. This boxed set contains all the details you need for a campaign on the Purple Planet.
The Making of the Ghost Ring DCC #85: The Making of the Ghost Ring

To save a soul and forge a ring! A ghostly enchantress calls for aid, her salvation hanging in the balance. Brave heroes are needed to complete the creation of a magical ring, a process that will take them from gritty city streets to sun-scorched deserts to the ruins of an ancient fortress atop a windswept peak. Are the adventurers up to the task or shall a sinister demon claim the souls of not only the enchantress but the heroes as well?

Steel and Fury
Steel and Fury from Purple Duck Games contains 32 new Mighty Deeds of Arms, each presented as a full page chart for quick and easy reference during play. So be ready to stand triumphant over your enemy as he futilely attempts to stuff ropes of intestine back into his torn body or pulverize your foe's internal organs with blunt force trauma. Crush bones, sever limbs, and deliver wicked wounds that bleed uncontrollably or catch your opponent in deadly choke holds and debilitating joint locks while grappling - and that is just to name a few.
Black Powder, Black Magic
Black Powder, Black Magic is a zine of of six-guns and sorcery from Stormlord Publishing. The debut issue sets the stage and introduces your players to the Dark Territories. This 44-page zine contains a complete level-0 funnel, 100 occupations, a timeline of major events, a map of the Dark Territories, rules for firearms, short fiction, and much more!
The Crimson Void
The Crimson Void describes a unique goddess (Kala Môr), Her cult, temple grounds, as well as the priests and other beings associated with the location. The easiest way to use this material is to allow PC clerics of Kala Môr attached to this temple. Kala Môr may also be used as a template for creating unique deities of the judge's own devising. Other characters may oppose the temple, come to it for aid, attempt to prevent a sacrifice, or need to leap into the Crimson Void themselves. Robbing the temple of its riches would be a crowning achievement for any thief.
Cast Tower of the Blood Moon Rises
Cast Tower of the Blood Moon Rises! is a 68-page adventure for 2nd and 3rd level DCC RPG characters. Terror pillages the minds of those rooted within Hallowstone Valley;  their Thane's daughter lost and their families tormented by the arrival of a murderous beast!  Before the villagers can be unbound from fear, adventurers brave enough to lend hand will find themselves plunging down a mysterious spiral of betrayal, half-truths, blood magic, and death -- eventually gaining possession of an extraordinary artifact of an immortal but perilous nature.
