Hello all,

Just wanted impressions from the forum on the Dungeon Crawl Classics series.  I just went through the Devil Lich tournament at Gen Con and had an absoulte BLAST.  Terrifying dungeon that was a joy to play, despite the FEAR kicking my intestines around.  VERY reminiscent of Tomb of Horrors....but with more of a story.  Will be 96 pages long and be available in November.

So, any thoughts?  Are these modules going to be collectible treasures?  First and second modules in the series have already sold out, and Goodman games seems to be picking up steam.  Wouldn't be surprised to see them stay alive for a while - and good for them!  Really nice guys who were very gracious and friendly at their Gen Con booth...even signed my modules and t-shirt.

Thanks for your thoughts!  
Ben :)

Sounds interesting Ben.   I know that the Dave Arneson limited edition d20 module released by Goodman last year has already fetched solid collector prices....

They're already up to about #8.

What was the limited release?

The limited release was titled Haunted Lighthouse.  I do not remember the number.

Someone in Australia had one for sale on eBay as I recall, fairly recently. Went for $100 or something. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Just saw these on ebay and they look very interesting.

Has anybody read them?  Are they any good.  Any titles to recommend/ stay away from?

They look so much like the AD&D modules that I might have to add them to the collection.


moron with money

Here's a direct link to the Dungeon Crawl Classics page on the Goodman Games website, for those interested:

I think your instincts are correct.  I'm collecting them as they come out, mainly the ones with Otus art.  The Devil Lich is an awesome tourny, and I've got 3 copies.  Goodman Games is definitely on the right trajectory.

I've flipped through a few, and they look to be nicely done. Using the TSR-style cover is nice too :)

It's interesting to see the "retro" trend starting to emerge. Necromancer Games is built around the "1st Edition feel", and they're products are fantastic.

The retro look is a good trend.  

I cannot distinguish between the covers of most publications...they all show muscular men, busty women or monsters doing vaguely threatening things.

As soon as I look at the cover of a Dungeon Crawl Classic by Goodman, I know exactly what the designers are trying to do.  I know what to expect inside.  I also know that they remember at least the outline of what gaming is supposed to feel like.   :wink:
