Taking a Look at Angels, Daemons & Beings For the DCC RPG

I know I heard about the Angels, Daemons & Beings Between: Patrons Sourcebook earlier, but I didn't realize it was being crowd funded over at Indiegogo. At least now I know where to find it with 15 days left in it's fund raising (it's nearly funded - then bring on the bonus goals).

If there is one part of the Dungeon Crawl Classic RPG that is unique AND under represented in the Core DCC book, it's the section on Patrons. What is there is really well done, but there isn't much there.

That's where a Patrons Sourcebook comes in damn handy. It gives actually choices to the players (and the DM) as to what's available. Expanding the Patron pool is a damn good thing.

I'm hoping to get a sneak preview or two from the lads behind the project that I can post up on the blog.

Here's a bit from the projects page:

"Angels, Daemons and Beings Between" is a perfect bound softcover supplement book detailing a host of new patrons for use in the DCC RPG.  In terms of patrons, expect our work to show the influences of Gardner Fox, A. Merritt, Leigh Brackett, Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and H.P. Lovecraft to name a few.  "Angels, Daemons and Beings Between" will be a 32-page, high quality product featuring brand new artwork.  It will utilize the Open Game License and the Dungeon Crawl Classics compatibility license to ensure full compatibility to the Dungeon Crawl Classic rules set.

Because this project is still in development, and because we want to make this supplement really worth your time, Dragon's Hoard publishing is proud to announce a number of stretch goals to "Angels, Daemons and Beings Between".  For every additional goal we meet, after our initial goal, we will add an additional sixteen pages of patrons until the book reaches a staggering 96 pages, with the final 4 pages dedicated to our brand new magic items section!

Basically, the more money that is raised, the more bang you get for your buck ;)
