New on Fantasy Grounds: Fifth Edition Fantasy #4: War-Lock

The Goodman presence on Fantasy Grounds keeps getting larger! And if you are a fan of the fifth edition of the world’s first fantasy role-playing game, then you will be happy to hear about our newest release. War-Lock is a 5th Level adventure written by Michael Curtis that challenges players to find a way to stop an immortal warlord before he can conquer your lands. From the back of the module: Devilish sorcery and ancient steel merge in the form of a reborn menace rising in the wild hills on civilization’s verge. As the badlands burn with wildfire, an arcane warlord gathers his monstrous troops under his tattered banner. He is rumored to be immortal, and it will take tremendous bravery, immense cunning, and more than a little luck for stalwart adventurers to end his campaign of malice. Can your mighty heroes locate the War-lock’s one weakness before his forces drown the realm in blood and fire? And don’t forget the rest of the Goodman Games library at Fantasy Grounds. Whether you want to play D&D 5E or DCC RPG, we’ve got the material to make your online game more fun than ever before! Look for War-Lock at Fantasy Grounds...

An Open Letter to Brazilian Fans of DCC RPG

Posted by on 11:56 am in Latest News | 0 comments

An Open Letter to Brazilian Fans of DCC RPG

An Open Letter To Brazilian Fans of DCC RPG This letter is for DCC fans in the great nation of Brazil. Goodman Games and the DCC RPG system have always had a strong fan base in Brazil, and I’m thankful for that. Over the years you have supported the game in many ways, and it’s been great to watch the fan base evolve. Several years ago, I signed an agreement with a local translation partner to bring a Portuguese edition of DCC RPG to the Brazilian marketplace. This kind of translation agreement is common in the RPG industry, and the partner I selected appeared to have all the necessary qualifications. Many Brazilian fans – and even some American fans – backed their crowdfunding effort. Unfortunately, the crowdfunding has not delivered as I expected, which many of you already know. I do not need to go into specifics, but I would like for fans to know that I, too, am disappointed in the outcome. I know many of you do not have all the products you thought you would receive. Believe it or not, I never received samples of all products from this publisher, either! On behalf of myself and Goodman Games, I would like to apologize for the challenges that you have experienced in the crowdfunding campaign for the Portuguese edition of DCC RPG. It is my goal to ensure that all backers receive the products they are entitled to. Just as importantly, it is my goal to ensure that DCC RPG fans in Brazil receive an edition of the book that lives up to the original USA edition and maintains our high production values. This letter is also to notify fans that the agreement between Goodman Games and New Order Editora will be terminated effective December 1. After that date, New Order Editora will no longer have the right to publish or sell DCC RPG materials in Brazil. As New Order Editora recently posted on Catarse, they have committed to fulfilling all backers before their license ends. If you are a backer who has not received your pledge items, please contact them to ensure your order is fulfilled. There is the remaining matter of DCC Lankhmar materials, which were offered by New Order Editora and unable to be fulfilled. While I do not like to disclose details of business agreements publicly, I must clarify something here. The agreement between Goodman Games and New Order Editora never included the rights to translate DCC Lankhmar to Portuguese. It is unfortunate that public commitments were made without proper agreement. In the Catarse post, New Order states that, “Como uma forma de compensação, negociamos com o sr. Goodman a liberação de seis módulos, para substituir os de Lankhmar, as aventuras foram escolhidas dentre as mais vendidas e procuradas nos EUA, e selecionadas pelo próprio Joseph Goodman!” This part is true: I will commit that Brazilian backers will receive some equivalent replacement for the missing Lankhmar modules. However, this will not be fulfilled by New Order Editora. Another publisher will soon take over the license and provide details on this aspect of things. I appreciate the fact that New Order Editora brought the DCC RPG game system to Brazilian fans. Without them, many Brazilian fans would never have been introduced to the system,...

Plus some of the items are also available at your FLGS! You cand find the new printings on Hugh’s Weird Dice, The Isle of Dread, and DCC Horror #2: Sinister Sutures of the Sempstress in game stores everywhere this week. Let’s take a look at everything! OAR #2: The Isle of Dread Back in stock and better than ever! This “tutorial adventure” by legendary designers Zeb Cook and Tom Moldvay was included in the D&D Expert Set and has been seen by millions of gamers. Now the 1E edition is released in hardcover form, accompanied by a 5E conversion and expansion. This is your chance to revisit an iconic adventure from your youth – and play it in the newest rules set with the next generation! Hugh’s Weird Dice This set contains the very dice that Hugh the Barbarian used to defeat a host of terrible adversaries and acquire his legendary magical bell-bottoms. Using these dice in your game is guaranteed to bring good fortune, especially if you rub them on a mustache prior to each session. This printing of Hugh’s Weird Dice features NEW ART and new game material on the back of the label. Hugh’s Weird Dice are white dice with red numbers on them. DCC Horror #2: The Sinister Sutures of the Sempstress A level 6 adventure for Dungeon Crawl Classics. Mother was wrong: There are monsters in the closet. Terror seeks out the adventurers in the safety of their own homes, drawing them into a tailored web of vengeance long-deferred. Torn from their beds, the PCs find themselves trapped in the House of Tattered Remnants, the home and prison of an eldritch entity known only as The Sempstress. The adventurers must overcome patchwork horrors, unearthly craftsmen, and even the unraveling of their own realities if they hope to defeat the Sempstress in her lair and escape the House. Or will they be unmade by The Sempstress’ evil? This edition is printed in 8.5″ x 11″ format. Gamescience D-100 Two dice to roll percentiles? What is this, the 20th century? The modern gamer needs only ONE die to roll that percentile, and comes in the form of the Zocchihedron! We now have several colors of the Zocchihedron back in stock, including the regular matte colors that you’ve known, as well as the rare and elusive metallic edition of the d100! Gamescience D-Total Back in stock! What is the D-Total, you ask? It’s the dice that only one company in the industry would have the courage to bring to market. The D-Total is an oversized hollow 24-sided die that can simulate ANY polyhedron result from 2-sided up to 100-sided. The die is printed with an incredibly complex array of symbols, shapes, and numbers. If you utilize the included two-page instruction sheet and apply significant amounts of patience, you can use this die to replace your entire collection of dice. Reviewing the samples and two pages of instructions inspired the Goodman Games creative staff to utter such phrases as these: “Yeah, I’m getting mad just looking at that.”“It’s like math homework.”“Every time I look at it I get a...

The city of Fort Wayne, Indiana has once more had the gaming industry descend upon it, and has emerged all the better for it.

Roadworthy: Judge Kara Baker!

Posted by on 11:55 am in Latest News, Roadworthy Judges | Comments Off on Roadworthy: Judge Kara Baker!

Roadworthy: Judge Kara Baker!

Welcome to Roadworthy! This is a chance to show off a Road Crew Judge and allow them to share their experience and wisdom. We provide these profiles to help provide insight into their personality and style, and maybe give up-and-coming Judges some advice on improving their game. The Road Crew theme for 2019 is Road Trip! We want you to get out there and experience the world. Whether it be in real life or online, you can always explore unknown lands and make new friends. Who knows, maybe we’ll put you up on our website. Jump on into the Road Crew program for your chance! Our latest Judge shares the same home town as Gen Con! From the hotbed of Indianapolis, IN comes Judge Kara Baker! Roadworthy: Kara Baker! What’s your name, where do you live (and game), and how would you describe yourself? My name is Kara Baker, and I live in Indianapolis, In. Before running Mutant Crawl Classics in public my GM experience had only been running a handful of Shadowrun games with friends at home. I have been running MCC for about a year. I have anxiety and panic disorder, but my love of MCC helped me overcome that and run games for strangers! How did you first discover DCC? A friend of mine and also one of the most amazing GM I’ve ever met, Eric Bennett, ran a different RPG every week, and one week it was DCC and it was part of the Road Crew games that year. We played a funnel and it was so much fun! After that game we kept up with what Goodman Games was doing, and found MCC! I’ve now run 18 MCC sessions in my history! As of “right now,” how many Road Crew games have you run in this season? I’m taking this year off from The Road Crew and spending time as a PC in DCC, to give my husband a chance to get his Judge’s badge. But I still have run 5 games because of Gen Con and Whosyer Con! What’s your favorite Road Crew game experience so far? *wicked laugh* My TPK on the first day of GenCon. That’s always fun when the PC are excited by it. That’s what I love about DCC/MCC it’s like a privilege to be killed off, especially when can give them stuff like con ribbons and dead stamps. With my regular Road Crew gang, they are so many it’s hard to remember them all, but I think it’s the time one of my PCs survived the funnel with 3 characters left! One was killed off from radiation on the way back, but the other 2 survived and I told her one more had to die and she begged for his life. So we decided that he had been too traumatized by his adventure to every leave the village again and decided he didn’t want to be a seeker. That was a very fun bit of role-playing. Tell us where you run your Road Crew games. We play in the very lovely, very spacious game room of Imbibe Bar & Game Room inside the Fountain Square Theater at 1105 Shelby St Foutain Square, Indianapolis, IN. We are on Facebook as Indianapolis Crawl Classics Road Crew if you want to find us. What advice would you give to other Road Crew judges? Be flexible, don’t be afraid to...

Support the Kickstarter for DCC Horror-Themed Western Adventure!

Ya’ll better listen to what we got to say here, fer yer own good…. Stephen Newton, the man behind Thick Skull Adventures, has a new Kickstarter to support his third-party adventure, The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner, and we think you should be a part of it! The adventure is designed for use with Dungeon Crawl Classics, and requires no rules outside of the core book to enjoy. However, as Stephen says on the Kickstarter home page, “it has been playtested with both David Baity’s upcoming Dark Trails RPG and Stormlord Publishing’s Black Powder, Black Magic DCC supplement with delightful results.” What can you expect? Here’s a brief description from the Kickstarter: This full-length, standalone adventure will be between 24 to 28 pages in length. The adventure is completely written, edited, and thoroughly playtested. It currently contains art from some of your favorite DCC RPG artists including FRK Pyron, Stefan Poag, Danny Prescott, Sonya Prince, and Aaron Robinson. The adventure will be released as an 8.5 x 11 booklet with color cover and black and white interior pages. There’s a lot more info on the Kickstarter page, but he tries to keep that just for the Judges, so…no spoilers here. The Kickstarter is just a few days in, but it is already funded, so at this point you would be helping reach some great stretch goals! So head on over to The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner Kickstarter and show them boys some love,...
