BUT, Many of the DCC modules have a chart at the back showing that and more.

The chart also shows what environment that adventure is set in.
Some are set in more than one of course.
The chart shows:
If the mod incoludes Pre-Gen PCs.
If the Mod was a CON Mod.
Best Adventure Winner.
Urban
Desert
Arctic
Aquatic/Coastal


Here is the chart scanned from the back of DCC 51.5: The Sinister Secret of Whiterock

Just drop in 1st Edition stats and roll.  It's a lot easier to go down to 1st Edition than it is to go up to 3.5

If the encounters are too weak, just say my favorite line:

"And 10 more run in!"

I agree, I have been doing that since I first started collecting the DCC Modules.
I have a full set now (except a couple of the really rare xx.5 Mods) plus a few of extras of some of the DCC modules.
I have been DMing them for the grandkids....
Worked the Modules down to 1st/2nd Edition, and/or to C&C Rules as needed.
It is not that hard to do.

BUT, since he played in David Rhea's Game at the convention,  the oldest wants to play 3.5 ED....  :?  :roll:  :cry:
I spent the past few weeks gathering copies of the 3.5 ED core rules and a few selected splat books.

"And 10 more run in"....
That is indeed a classic phrase. :lol:

And one more thing.
Welcome back Mark!
We missed you!

It's the first edition flip-book module from last years Gen Con.  What?  You don't like the monochrome look?

That flip book and the Saga of the Rat King were issued for GenCon 2008, and then made available at NK.



The Tower/Golden Auroch flip book modules are designed for a, "1E Fantasy Campaign (as stated by the angled banner on the top left)."  



Mono reflects AD&D.  The scheme works for me.



Best,

I picked up a few at Gencon last year, I believe.  I've been long sold out of these, however.

Interview with Joe Goodman that has already been linked to in the General Collecting section by Plaag, I thought it would go nicely here also:

What I'd love to see are the retail sales figures on 4e material. What WoTC and Goodman are quoting include wholesale sales of 4e material to distributors and retailers. They don't represent customer purchases. The continual sale of brand new 4e books at wholesale and below on Ebay is not a good indicator of 4e success.

Alliance Distribution, probably the largest distributor (for games) in the US has an annual July Sale, where they sell stuff (to stores) from 60-90% off (instead of the usual 40-50%).
There is a lot you can learn from that sale.  This month they had all Crocodile Games stuff at 90% off (they were sold out in the first two days). That obviously means they are no longer carrying Croc products.  There are a few other companies and/or product ranges that they were doing a similar thing to.

Anyway, they were listing pretty much every 4e product at 60% off.  That is an obvious indicator that they heavily over-ordered on all 4e products.

It's a good investment in the long term, but we're talking 5-10 years at least before we start seeing this as hard to find. But for those sitting on stock, this will still be a cornerstone of the GG DCC range. Unfortunately the quality of the writing is way below it's competitors in the mega-dungeon stakes. It's head and shoulders above AEG's offering, but then that's not hard to achieve. When compared to RAR and CZ:UW, it's badly written, porly presented, and thrown together in a hurry to make money. It will take a long time before people don't see this for what it is. But rest assures, they will forget in time, and prices will rise.

Known Realms is a far better investment.

Just a few points:



These aren't personal copies, they are property of the North Texas RPG Con organization, so all profits go to keeping the con going in 2010!



Investment potential, as Ian says, is long term. There were just too many printed last year.  However, if you are collection "one of each" (each different logo), this I believe is the rarest of the 3-4 versions....only 150 copies printed, total.



The EO cover is worth the price alone!

I think Ian is talking about DCC#51

The North Texas DCC has a excellent short term potential.
