Kickstarter for Peril on the Purple Planet

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.

Bereft of patron, friend or god, your survival depends on quick wits and a strong blade. Will you and your companions stand as conquerers atop this alien land? Or will you fall beneath the blast of an ink-black death rays, just another corpse left to litter the wastes of the Purple Planet?

In under 48 hours, the Kickstarter for this new adventure by Harley Stroh funded -- and in less than a week it has passed three stretch goals!
  • A Dungeon Crawl Classics adventure module of planetary scope -- at level 4. The adventure flings your characters to adventures on a distant world dying slowly under a weirdling sun.
  • The basic pledge funds print+PDF copy of a boxed set containing Harley Stroh's 32-page adventure module, plus a second 32-page campaign booklet -- and possibly more depending on stretch goals.
  • The first softcover book is the adventure module Peril on the Purple Planet, which has two built-in special features. First, the cover art is oversized, and spreads across front and back cover in addition to wrapping around to front and back flaps. The flaps also double as player handouts when folded out to face the table. Second, the adventure map is a three-page-wide hex crawl, which folds out of the module center as a three-panel gatefold. Additionally, the adventure includes a number of B/W interior handouts to show the players what they face on the Purple Planet.
  • The second softcover book is a campaign booklet to expand your journey on the Purple Planet. At the basic pledge level, before any stretch goals, it includes three chapters: Lost Tombs of the Ancients, Bestiary of the Purple Planet, and Lost Tech of the Purple Planet, with contributions from Daniel J. Bishop, Tim Callahan, Edgar Johnson, and Terry Olson.
  • You can support this Kickstarter by adding on other adventure modules from the Dungeon Crawl Classics line, most of which are on sale for 25% off as part of this Kickstarter. You can also add on Purple Planet Player Guides at $5 each.
  • Stretch goals for this project will put even more items into the boxed set! These include the possibility of an ecology book, additional encounters, a book of handouts, a book of magic, a custom GM screen, and a guide to the Purple Underplanet!

The return of Xcrawl, now powered by Pathfinder, in a hardcover format! You are a superstar athlete taking your chances in a live-on-pay-per-view death sport dungeon. This new edition includes all-new art and completely new writing, building on the core game concepts of the original 3.5E publication, which was Ennie-nominated for "D20 Game Of The Year" upon its original release.
Check out this early review of the new edition on YouTube.

The Kickstarter has unlocked TEN stretch goals, and more are sure to be had before this is all over! For a mere $40 pledge, you get:
  • The 160 page Pathfinder-compatible hardcover including everything you need to play. The basic pledge includes both print + PDF edition. Based on a completed stretch goal, the endsheets on the core book will be printed in full color! They will show the four-panel image originally used for the Xcrawl GM screen.
  • A free PDF of the module The Inaugural Celebrity Pro-Am Crawl, which was originally published under 3.5E rules and will be converted to both Pathfinder and DCC RPG stats.
