No worries :)

Edit - plus pointing out that the exclusives wild already, where it's noted above that it was thought to only be #66.5

Just as a follow on to my previous note.

GG got back to me VERY quickly and apologised, and have sent me  a pdf to be going along with. Later that day, a single copy of the book turned up at my door, rather than the amount I was expecting!!

I have contacted GG to see if they'll sort it (and I feel confident they will at the moment)

In the meantime - Dave I've PM'd you - FWIW the book is a beast and definitely worth having!!! (And it was undamaged in shipping!!)

GG have once again replied very quickly with an apology for their oversight - and on the weekend too!!

They have promised to put it right, so I'm a happy bunny at the moment.

Though my initial post was a moan, so far I can't complain by the way GG have acted to make matters better - and that surely shows decent customer service.


(and I'm glad I bought it as well, it looks like great stuff from a brief skim - I'll probably never manage to plough through the whole book, but at least I can bludgeon would be burglars to death with it - it certainly is a monstrous book :D )

Arrived today in mint condition.  Two week international delivery time.  No problems and speedy.

The second printing has been sent to the printer, and it addresses everything identified here (including an index). When I get a chance I will type out answers to the various open questions in this thread, as corrected in the second printing.

The first printing will likely sell out (from our warehouse) in the next 7-14 days. Get it while you can!

And Doug is working on a kickass new cover for the second alternate cover edition...

Got another parcel from Goodman today, they have certainly made good with their promises to me, so I cannot fault them in this regard.

(I probably still paid too much for the book though - my own fault for impatience as I should have known that this would quickly filter through to resellers. Let's face it though, its not the first time, and certainly won't be the last time I overpay for an rpg book :D )

So it seems there's another limited edition version of the rulebook coming out.

http://www.goodman-games.com/5070Wpreview.html

Also DCC#71 The 13th skull has a limited edition cover.

Although I hope to one day complete my DCC collection, I do hope Goodman Games is not going to release a limited edition of every second book they publish.

And now they add correct shipping amount for international order  :twisted:  I was happy to pay only $4 to France...

Is the game good? is it worth playing or collecting?

The DCC RPG is pretty much like any other RPG.  If you have a good GM the game is going to be good.  Bad GM....well you get the idea.  I played it last year at NTRPG with Harley Stroh as the GM.  He ran DCC 72: Beyond the Black Gate (which I just bought) and it was one of the most memorable games I've played in.  A couple of the other Acaeum members who played in the game will most likely agree.

The mechanics are definitely different, especially in regards to magic use.  Spells can fail or do all sorts of unexpected, wacky things.  And then there are the dice.  You will be wanting to use the odd, rarely used d3, d5, d14, d16 and d24 the rules call for.  You can work the math out using normal dice but it helps to have the Zocchi ones handy.

As for collectability.....I dunno how much rarer the limited black & gold covered DCC rulebook is than the regular cover but I've seen quite a few of the regular cover version in local stores recently and none of the limited version.  I just picked up a copy of the limited cover of DCC #71 and its pretty awesome.  Nice and shiny!  :D   And I also preordered the special edition gold foil Dungeon Alphabet from Goodman as well.  It's supposed to be expanded compared to the original version I already have so I gotta have it.  Regardless of which version of the rulebook you purchase, its a beautiful book.  Lots of great old school artwork.  I consider it to be superior to Ptolus and Slumbering Tsar in production values.

I also had the good fortune to play a DCC game with Harley at Gen Con and had a similar experience; one of the most memorable games ever. The rulebook is packed with great art and has a great humor throughout. The magic system as well as clerics relationships with their deities are set up to remind you that mere mortals best not trifle with powers they don't understand. Hilarity ensues! I agree with King, collectibility is debatable, but I highly recommend the book for playing/enjoyment sake.

I think as Kingofpain & Ligmancer, is it a very interesting game. I have read it with pleasure... I really hope to have on opportunity to play it.
And it is a very beautiful item.

About collectibility, well,'debatable' is the right word. I bought the Gold Foil Cover and it am very happy with it.
As xRalphx wrote, there will be another limited edition / alternate cover release in the forthcoming weeks. And it seems that there will be another, later... but I didn't find any other informations except that from the Goodman Games forum :
