There are three prints of Idylls of the Rat King, each with different cover art.  The Lost Vault of Tsathzar Rho, #2, had three printings: the first has cover art by Rob Thomas, the second and third by Holloway.  The third print's cover text has a different colour.

Btw, is there any difference between individual modules and those same modules issued in a "super pack"? I.e., printing differences, packaging differences, etc.


There were (as I recall) two boxed sets released that were "adventure paths" if you will, that took 4 DCC modules and combined them into one offering (basically just by marketing the individual modules together in one box).  
One of them, The Saga of the Dragon Cult, also had additional "interlude" material included in the box.  I don't think these were different printings, I believe they were really just a way to help move extra stock.

I thought we had a guide to it all worked out around here somewhere...

The wiki has a good chunk:  http://wiki.acaeum.com/wiki/Gallery:Dun ... l_Classics

I'm sure this accurate, but I don't know if it's complete: http://www.goodman-games.com/forums/vie ... f=20&t=776

Thanks guys!

I guess a lot of this is a roundabout way of asking whether it's worth any bother to worry about the different printings. I suppose that answer will be different for different people.

It depends if you're asking for purposes of content or value?

I don't think there is much difference in content.  For long term value, first printings are almost always worth more, but personally, I don't think the gap will be that significant for this line.

Curse of the Emerald Cobra
Volcano Caves
Citadel of the Demon Prince
Shadows in Freeport

Are there two distinct printings for each of the above DCCs?

My correspondence with Joseph Goodman has established that modules bearing the lasso logo ended with #17, the Legacy of the Savage Kings.  

It is possible there may be two printings of the above modules with the rhino logo, but I've not pursue that line of inquiry.

I hope that helps.

Best,

Paul

This poster is the most wonderful thing I have ever seen. The figure wearing bell-bottoms resembles the cover of this:
http://astralheadspace.blogspot.com/201 ... -st37.html
"Sure, the new split 7" (more release partying!) - but also a great new Cthulhu shirt, a replacement copy for my lost cd of the debut Immortal Chinese Classics Music (#9, 1995), even a copy of the Druids & Demons handbook. Well, a pamphlet anyway - seems like LP4 have their own authorized fantasy RPG now!"

That is, I made a promo booklet for the Houston band Linus Pauling Quartet in 2010. Perhaps it's coincidence, but the cover I drew looks very similar. If it's not, I am more than honored by the tribute.

Anyone who wants a copy of the Druids & Demons PDF, PM me your email. Otherwise check out LP4's music at http://www.worshipguitars.org/LP4/

I have only seen a lasso logo for Curse of the Emerald Cobra. I don't know if there is a rhino printing. Can anyone confirm?

I have rhino logos for Citadel of the Demon Prince, Shadows of Freeport, and Volcano Caves. I have seen stock images for these three modules that have lasso printings. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks!

Just a note, Goodman is offering a sweet gold embossed version of the DCC RPG rules, along with a special module for the suckers willing to pay big money.

Sunrunner44 - noted sucker.

Thanks for the update.. :)  Glad to see I am not the only sucker. ;)


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Well, he's tossing in an exclusive module and a pdf of the entire work, if that reduces our sucker quotient any. :study:

I felt like a sucker for having pre-ordered the boxed set.

(I don't think that collector's editions of RPG's are a good idea.  I think they encourage customers to put away the game and never play.  Thus, they don't recruit other customers.  I think the opportunity cost for the company is higher than the limited profit from the special edition.)

(I was subsequently astonished to see Bill Webb, Scott Greene and others using the very scarce harback copies of Swords and Wizardry for tabletop play at PaizoCon...so what do I know?)

I got an email today from Goodman saying that the module will be available with the first 1000 pre-orders of the boxed set as well.

Since I have already pre-ordered (and paid), I figure I must be part of the first 1000 customers.

That reduced my pissed-off quotient.

Oops. It's back.  :twisted:

But hey, it looks like we get a pdf, too!

Whether it's a a hardback or a special boxed set matters naught to me.
