Dungeon Crawl Classics Beta - Its All the Rage!

The frickin' thing is hotter then hot cakes!  Every blogger and their younger brother has something to say about the Dungeon Crawl Classics Beta that was released today - some good, some bad, some bad / good, some good / bad.  The simple fact is people are talking about it, more-so then any recent RPG release that I can recall.  Heck, I preordered sight unseen when it was first announced, and ordered my funky dice this past weekend.

I'm sure that  everyone is waiting with baited breath for my thoughts on it, but that will have to wait.  My initial impression, having virtually thumbed thru my digital copy is that the art rocks and the game definitely has multiple roots - Dungeons and Dragons, Tunnels & Trolls and Rolemaster immediately come to mind, but there might be more.

My thoughts come later ;)


  1. DCC is shaping up to be one of those RPGS(along w/ Alternity and 1st edition Shadowrun) that makes me wish I hadn't been so short sighted as to make my own blog 2e specific. :P

  2. darn, I still want to talk about
    shields in combat ; - )

  3. While not riveting as shields in combat the DCCrpg download is packed with fantastic artwork. Definitely worth grabbing just for that. Also a number of plunderable ideas even if you don't intend to use the system.
