This video popped up in my NTRPG Con Facebok feed yesterday and it shocked me that I hadn't seen it before. Tim Kask talks about the early days of TSR and more.
Its 2 hours long and I haven't finished it yet.
Still, here's to you Tim! Cheers!
At long last, the DCC RPG quick start rules! Only $5!
These starter rules were written specifically to introduce judges and players to the DCC RPG system. In some areas, rules have been condensed and simplified. These rules will serve primarily to get characters through their first level 0 adventure and their first level 1 adventure. Although the rules go up to level 2, for the full DCC experience and play at levels up to 10th, please refer to the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rulebook!
This book includes two adventures! You get the enduring classic Portal Under the Stars 0-level adventure for new players, plus in a flip-book format, an all-new level 1 adventure, Gnole House by Michael Curtis, inspired by the works of Lord Dunsany and Margret St. Clair who first wrote of the creature called the “gnole,” which Gary Gygax later evolved into the better-known gnoll!
These quick start rules & intro adventures were originally released on Free RPG Day.With shipping it came to 10 bucks. Maybe I should have added an adventure or three, but I was just too excited to be able to order the DCC Starter rules (which is more accurate than Quickstart in my opinion, as you get to level and explore what a campaign actually is)
We’re excited to revise, expand & update our popular Encounter Decks to Sidequest Decks!
Why the name change? It is a more accurate description. As you likely know, each card is a mini-adventure, not just one encounter.
What else is new? Decks 1 & 2 didn’t have the map match the adventure on the other side of the same card. Now the map is the most important/unique map to the adventure, as in Decks 3 & 4. If the adventure needs other maps you may pick another card’s map as needed. Also, Decks 1, 2, and 3 have been sorted into four new decks based on sub-genre/setting and new adventures have been added. Another improvement: many new maps have been added even for previous adventure outlines to ensure the map matches the adventure. The new maps are wonderful and some older maps have been tweaked for easier reading. Deck 4 (Science Fiction) only changed the name.I have the original decks and their are great for inspiration (or emergency adventures when unprepared)
