Selling Castle Whiterock and Sinister Secret thereof

Re: Castle Whiterock question - how standalone is it?

Sorry to repeat if it was already said somewhere in this thread, but I just got this and it's fairly explicit with suggestions on how to use the individual pieces as separate dungeons. So, it's designed with the idea that you take levels 5 and 5A and use them in your world as one dungeon, and 6 and ...

Open thanks to Joe and Co.

I wanted to send a big thank you to Joe for the ridiculously quick shipment of my order of Castle Whiterock (which if any reading this didn't notice, is on sale for a ridiculously discounted price in the store :) ) It was shipped via media mail; I ordered it on 7/15, and it arrived in California tod...

scale/size question

Greetings all... I've been looking at reviews and samples and unable to determine... how big is this thing? I see somewhere that the Northlands are about 3000 miles across... how big is the whole map? As you can probably tell I'm trying to guess how hard it would be to cram into another world... jus...

You don't really "need" anything to run 1E mods in C&C. However, you should decide initially if you'll use the 1E monsters or the C&C monsters. Doesn't matter so much but BTB many of the monsters have powers missing that you'd expect. For example, lycanthropes can be hit by normal weapons. The one p...

DCC 35 is great. There's a broad range of all kinds of stuff, and several probably won't fit with your campaign. But there's so many adventures, that doesn't matter at all. Definitely something for everyone. Most of them are fairly small too, so handy for a beginning session when you need to have ti...

yes

One thing that is a drag is figuring out spellcasters. Many of the 3E spells (at least the ones module designers always use: cat's grace, stoneskin, etc.) are not in C&C, and the spells per day are all different. I'm not comfortable improvising those; take the time to figure out who should be able t...

It's very ironic, but this was released just after I started scribbling notes for a C&C campaign world. I had already decided that the main culture would worship the Babylonian pantheon, or what had originally been the babylonian pantheon... So this adventure now becomes a perfect fit! I haven't run...

Interview with Joseph at Dundracon

Joseph and Steve Chenault of Troll Lord were interviewed by someone at Dundracon:

It's about 2/3 of the way through the sound clip.

Note Joseph's explanation of the success of DCCs :)

I'm a stereotype, do I need to respond? I only buy the DCCs, and not all of them. I run them either under B/X rules or AD&D. I'll probably use them with Castles &Crusades, if I ever end up playing that.

And again, nicely done. There were two on the shelf, so that seems to make sense.

If C&C books (and your mods) are any indication, I think these guys (Gamescape in SF, CA) only order two at a time of anything!

DCC new printing format

Joseph, I just picked up Legacy of the Hero-Kings, and it's very cool. I did notice one thing however. They were on the new releases shelf with no shrink-wrap, and there happened to be two in the particular cubbyhole/shelf. So the guts of the module had slipped out of the covers a bit. I don't know ...

not that I know of

I don't even think any of them specify possible settings. I think it's part of the point of the whole series that they can go anywhere. I've placed some in Greyhawk for my 1E campaign, some on Cerilia (Birthright) for my B/X D&D campaign, and I haven't figured out what to do with the Drow one yet. BB

Castles & Crusades

I wanted to recommend these rules highly to everyone here, especially those that are fans of the Dungeon Crawl Classics. The rules are light but apply well to any situation that a DM could face. The new old classes are interestingly rendered and immediately evoke campaign ideas, at least to me. I ce...

Just wanted to post and thank Joseph and all for a great adventure. Smuggler's Cove was the first DCC that I've run, and it went incredibly well. It happened to fit nicely in a pirate campaign I was running, and the locathah/druid elements in the final stages were different and great. Also, I change...

Joseph, is that big Geek Wars splash page what you want to be the first thing everyone sees when they come to your website? I mean, I guess it is because it's set up that way.
