KICKSTARTER NEWS
METAMORPHOSIS ALPHA: DOOM ON THE WARDEN KICKSTARTER
Last Chance Week!
If you are ready to explore the halls of the spaceship Warden, you've got one more week to get onboard with the new Doom on the Warden Kickstarter ! Metamorphosis Alpha creator James M. Ward has written this new adventure that changes life aboard The Warden ...forever.

The campaign is funded and good to go, but we've still got some stretch goals to attain. Here's what we've reached and what we still might:

  • Stretch goal #1 ($7,000): CLEARED! First set of printable reference cards. There are 100+ creatures, weapons, and items to encounter in this adventure. We would like to create simple cards to summarize them for players and judges alike. These will be provided in PDF format and can be printed for use in game. This first stretch goal will cover creation of approximately 30 such cards, which should encompass most of the weapons in this adventure. 
  • Stretch goal #2 ($12,000): CLEARED! Two new colored metal arm bands available as add-ons. First launched in our previous Metamorphosis Alpha projects, these metal arm bands mimic the control bands in the original game. These make great tabletop props and Mr. Ward allows their use in his convention games. At this stretch goal, we will manufacture two kinds of new bands: the bio-science band (first encountered in Level of the Lost), and the military command band (first seen in the Warden Armory). These will be add-ons available at $10 each.
  • Stretch goal #3 ($15,000): CLEARED! Second set of printable reference cards, similar to the goal above. This will be another 30 or so such cards, which should be enough to cover most of the items encountered in the adventure.
  • Bonus stretch goal! ($19,000) CLEARED! Backers will receive a PDF of Level of the Lost! 
  • Stretch goal #4 ($22,000): CLEARED! Printed endsheets with great art to adorn them!
  • Bonus stretch goal! ($24,000): CLEARED! Backers will receive a PDF of The Android Underlords and Warden Adventures.
  • Stretch goal #5 ($27,000): Third set of printable reference cards, similar to the goal above. This will be another 30 or so such cards, which should cover most of the monsters, mutants, and robots encountered in the adventure.
  • Stretch goal #6 ($35,000): A sewn-in satin ribbon bookmark to hold your place when you run the adventure.
  • Stretch goal #7 ($45,000): Expanded page count on the printed books to include some or all of the reference cards. There are some printing parameters we'll have to verify but the goal is to get most or all of the reference cards printed and bound into the book.
  • And beyond that...who knows?

NEW DCC THIRD-PARTY RELEASES FOR UMERICA
If you've been busy crawling under a broken moon and are just dying to sink your teeth into something, there's some good news for you. We have two tasty new adventures from Shield of Faith for the Umerica campaign setting.

Umerica is a gonzo post-apocalyptic campaign setting and sourcebook based on the articles from the Crawling Under a Broken Moon zine. And now they've added to more books to the universe to expand the world even further. And they have our mouths watering for adventure.

Let's see what's on the menu!
An Umerican Adventure of Tasty Treachery for 3+ Level Characters.

Welcome to Oniontown!

Oniontown is the inhabited remains of a once sizable pre-cataclysm city. For decades the Buddy O’Burger cult has claimed dominion here but now a dreadful curse and formidable rivals threaten to upset their reign and tear the city apart!

Will you aid the O’Burger cult in restoring order to the city? Will you side with the rival Piggy King cult, hungry to take over? Will you delve into other malevolent mysteries that might be behind the conflict consuming Oniontown? Will you use the conflict to grab every bit of sweet salvage you can get your mutated mitts on?

Will you profitably prevail the perils of the city or just become another freshly served value menu item in the Burger Wars?
An Umerican 0-Level Adventure.

An Umerican Culinary Experience Brought To You By The Go! Afterlife Company.

Ever wonder how Go! Bars come up with such tasty flavors like Peppermint Pot Pie? Ever think that it’s odd that Go! Bars are still around and plentiful? Find out as you join the Go! Bar team as wage wights. Find out how they decide on their innovative flavor combinations. Learn about the secret ingredients. Find out if escaping on your bi-annual day off really is a way to taste freedom. Herd your hoard of wage wights past the grease ghouls, avoid your supervisors the skeleton crew, and don’t draw the attention of the quality control in-specter.

XCRAWL: THE MOVIE!
You might have heard the rumors, but now you can watch the "sizzle reel"...

Based on the role-playing game created by Brendan LaSalle, Xcrawl is being shopped around Hollywood! That's right, a team of producers spoke with Brendan and the folks at Pandahead Productions to see about selling a live-action Xcrawl movie—or possibly series—to the folks who make such things.

And you can watch that sizzle reel over on YouTube.

Lest we forget, Goodman Games will be publishing Xcrawl Classics in the not-too-distant future! More details on that soon, but for now, go look at the animatic visuals meant to inspire a feature film.

SUPPORT AUSTRALIAN FIRES CHARITY RAFFLE
The fires that have ravaged Australia are horrific. Millions of acres of land, and even more animals—some reports estimating as high as one billion—have been destroyed. The cost these fires have built is staggering, with reports in the millions of dollars PER DAY. And, sadly, these fires continue.

Dave Baity, a huge supporter of  Dungeon Crawl Classics  and a fireman in his day-to-day life, has put together a charity raffle event to help out. Every penny you contribute will go to helping the people of Australia.

Follow the link below for all of the details, including information on how to donate to become a part of this raffle, and all of the items being given away. Australia needs our help!
BEST SELLING DCC THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS FOR 2019
Our third-party publishers have created an amazing array of product that touches on settings and ideas that show the true creativity of the Dungeon Crawl Classics fan. Every year we are impressed with the new avenues explored and the quality of the product released.

In 2019 the third-party sales were amazing, and we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the top sellers in two different categories: Overall Best Selling DCC Third Party Items and Best Selling Zines.

Be sure to click on the image to take you to the product for a full description of the release. And, to let you know, in some cases there are alternate covers available for the books or multiple issues of the zines, but we just chose one to display. Go ahead and look at all your options!

But why am I yammering away? Follow the link below to check out the list!

ADVENTURES IN FICTION: BARSOOM
By James Maliszewski
February 2020 is the 108th anniversary of the first publication of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ first Mars story. His “Mars” or “Barsoom” series is arguably one of the most influential stories in the history of fantasy and science fiction. Certainly, for fans of D&D history, it should be required reading, as its protagonist not only serves as the model for the iconic Fighter character, but it also is an important influence on the evolution of D&D —and great source material for fun adventures.

This post is the original entry into the Adventures In Fiction series, where we discuss fictional works that can inspire your own great adventures, for D&D , DCC RPG , or any other game. For this first installment, James “Grognardia” Maliszewski has agreed to cover the topic, Why You Should Read the Barsoom Novels ...

2020 WAREHOUSE FINDS!
Ever have that experience where you go to clean out your closet and you come out holding something that makes you say, “I didn’t know I had that!” Yeah, us too.

We found a treasure-trove of items and materials that we thought were long out-of-print or no longer available. And a few things that we decided SHOULD be made available to the public-at-large at this point. And we found a LOT of it.

Some of these are variants. Some are promo items. Some are stretch goals for Kickstarters past. All of them are cool and hard to find.

For details on each find, be sure to click the photo below! We only have a very limited supply of these items, and there aren’t any more in the warehouse. Trust us, we checked.

Just what did we find? Hold onto your hat, it’s quite a list…
