Hi Guys,

I am pleased to be able to announce that Goodman Games will be releasing two, yes two, 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Crawl Classics adventure modules at this year's Gen Con.  

In the first adventure module, we've pulled together DCC #1 Idylls of the Rat King by Jeff Quinn and DCC #27 The Revenge of the Rat King by Harley Stroh and added a new bridging adventure, written by me, called The Scourge of Silverton.  This year's adventure compilation, aptly dubbed Saga of the Rat King, will take 1st Level PCs to 6th level if played consecutively, and features cover art by Jeff Dee.  

Saga of the Rat King is 64 pages and will cost $15.99.

Here's the link to the official announcement on the Goodman Games website:

The second adventure module to be released includes two short adventures from DCC # 29 The Adventure Begins.  This Gen Con-exclusive "flip book" features The Golden Auroch on one side and Tower of the Black Pearl on the other!

The Gen Con exclusive flip book is 24 pages and will run $10.99.

Here's the link to the official announcement on the Goodman Games website:

Thanks for your interest.

Wow, completely out of nowhere!  Thanks for this tip of the cap to the old school collector.  Can't wait to see them, I'll be there the first day to pick up a copy!

The way the announcement is worded on the site, the Rat King Saga will be available inlimited quantities from Noble Knight afterwards, but the flip book won't?  Will the flip book be a Gen Con only release? Thanks TJ!

Well, whaddya know....and all that time telling people that there was no way Goodman Games was going to be able to pull off a cool Gen Con release this year and you go and announce two of them.  Man you guys over there sure are good at keeping secrets!  This is a real nice surprise.  :D

Thanks tacojohn!

That's right, Mike.  Saga of the Rat King will be available for a limited time following Gen Con from Noble Knight Games.  However, the flip book is a genuine Gen Con exclusive release.  When they're gone, they're gone.

I think the old school gamers and collectors will like both of the releases - especially the flip book.

Yeah, there has been some speculation that GG wouldn't be doing any more 1st Edition releases.  So naturally releasing two this year seemed to be a good idea.  And yeah, it was hard keeping these a secret.  But now we don't have to!

Glad to see there's still some interest.

Why not?  Just because you arent going to GenCon this year doesnt mean that one of the people that is going cant grab a few extras for people that want them.

Would anyone visiting GenCon be willing to pick these 2 up for me, please?  Of course I would pay whatever they cost, and shipping expenses.  I will also throw in a few figures from Otherworld Miniatures to say 'thank you'.  :D

This is fantastic news! How is this legal under the GSL, TacoJon? (Wonders to self if the modules will be worth more once Goodman Games gets the cease and desist letter from Wizards the second day of the show.)

Goodman games has done this before.....with 12.5 and Saga of the Witch Queen....with no repercussions.  

I'll try to pick up extra copies....but first dibs are going to go to those who have traded with me on the "parts" thread or are nearby (i.e. fellow Texan Acaeum members that can hunt me down and shoot me if I don't get them a copy). If there is anything left over I'll be sure and advertise them here....I don't know what limits Goodman Games will put on the purchase of the 1E items.

Mike,

What about those of us that offer bribes, such as slabs of bacon and barrels of alcohol?  Can that get us to the front of the line?


Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

I always say, it's the quality, not the quantity, that counts.... :wink:

But seriously guys I'm already in for four copies and I haven't even planned out a method of attack. You might fare better appealing to another member of the forum (Hint: Check out the Gencon forums posts for names of people who will be there.....there are plenty going this year it looks like!)

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised to see Goodman limit the number of copies you can buy a day or something. Didn't someone make off with 15 of the 60 Iron Crypts? (Or is that story just apocryphal?)

I think that was Shane (Plaag) the year before last.  Pretty sure he had a laundry list of Acaeum members he was buying for.

I can buy for some folks.  But I will not guarentte anything.  They may limit the number you can buy and they may run out.  (Running out would be a long shot considering what happened two years ago.)

PM me with what you want and I will do my best.

I'll be at GenCon as well and I'm more than happy to buy for some of the fine folks on the Acaeum.  Send me a PM and I'll see what I can do.  :D

Heh - one or two of the folks here on this board latched onto the rumor that I had snatched 15-30 copies of the Iron Crypts at the opening of the 2006 Gen Con "supposedly" for the playtesters, but secretly planned to sell them off on eBay.  

Of course, that rumor was untrue and could be confirmed as false by at least two different people that were in the Goodman booth when I got there on Thursday.  I got my one comp copy from the 1st printing batch (the 60 copy lot), and bought the all the rest myself from the second printing batch.

Well, these adventure modules will be released under the OGL.  IIRC, Goodman Games has until the end of the year to sell through the existing OGL product, in particular the DCCs for 3.5 Edition, under the terms of the GSL.  I think the same terms would apply to the 1E DCC releases as well - that no reprints could be done and that existing stock needs to be sold or disposed of by Dec. 31.  

Of course, I kind of quit paying attention to the GSL development somewhere along the line.  My opinions are based upon a very loose understanding of how the GSL is supposed to work.

Yeah I was the one that bought the 16 copies (or 15) of 1e 12.5, and it all went to those that had PMed me that year.
As for not being able to get them..well its more planning where my money goes right now then someone not able to pick them up. (Course I'll have to see where things stand by the end of August)
