So if anyone has any just let me know  :)

The covers are on the Goodman Games site, but as mentioned I don't know if Joseph will let them be used here or not -hopefully he would.


Ask..
I asked for a larger pic of the cover of ToFB then the one he has on his site, which he provided and I scaled to my specifications.

Example:  the player's guides for the DCC tournaments at Gencon, the GM's tourney copies of the modules, the Goodman Games bookmark that has a picture of the baddie from DCC 3.5.  Tournament trophies from Gencon.  The official colored battlemaps from the cons.  The list could go on.

Since I'm "the superfan" I'm gifted with some of this great stuff, and don't plan to sell any, but it would be nice to know that I've got some "sweet" items.

Rock on,

Ben "superfan" Waxman

I would be happy to expand my Goodman Games page in the 'Future Collectables' section of Afterglow2.com if someone could supply descriptions and details for the more unusual items. The module details and coverscans I could get, but getting specifics would require a little help. If you're interested, Gus or Ben, I'll put the time in over the Christmas break.

Incidently, for those who are interested, we may see another scenario from Ben Burns in the near future. If those who have BRI-1 through 3 give him a prod, he may get BRI-4 out in January.

Wouldn't a sub-web or something similar fall under the realm of "fair use" of copyrighted material? In other words, the images would be used for informational purposes, not for any sort of gain or as an attempt to damage the rights-holder.

The only "fair use" situation I'm familiar with deals with reviews/critiques; it's okay (in the U.S., at least) to use excerpts or artwork to accompany a review. I don't know if that privilege would extend to an informational page on the web or not.

I don't see that cataloguing a companies publications with cover scans can in any way breach copyright law, otherwise everything that Amazon and Acaeum and any other website does is against the law. There is no legal issue here at all.

Aside.... Noble Knight Games has a Mint copy of DCC17.5 in their shop for $75. Might be worth picking up before the prices go all silly. They did have 1E DCC12.5 but they're all sold out now. :D

I hadn't had a chance to. :(

I know that Joseph is a great guy to speak to and has answered all my emails very quickly considering the work he must have on.

Very good bloke. :D

Brendon or KOP for that matter, here is a #8:

Although I am not sure what print that it might be.

Hi Everyone,

This is slightly off the topic in this thread, but here goes anyway.   :D   Can some of you Goodman Games fans give some recommendations on a few of the better modules?

Something like your own personal top 5 list or something.  You know, if a guy like me wanted to check some out, but didn't want to invest a lot of cash . . . what are some of the better mods he could pick up on the cheap?

Thanks!

I liked Haunted Lighthouse, but it costs sh"tloads. But then it was Arneson who wrote it. I thought Mask of Death sucked. I'm just reading through Iron Crypt of the Heretics.

My personal favorites are:

Crypt of the Devil Lich (which I played in at GenCon) and

35A  Hall of the Minotaur

Crypt of the Iron Heretics and Dungeon Interludes are also excellent.

Harley Stroh is one of my favorite authors from the series, which is why I chose to map out most of his modules with the Dundjinni programs.

FYI: If you do chose to run any of these modules, do yourself a favor and download the maps I made off of "Prester's Map and Chart Emporium" in the freebie section of the goodmangames.com website.    IMHO they were very helpful in speediing up the game and helping the players "get into" the module.

P.S.  If anyone eventually does put together a page w/ goodman games info, I would be happy to provide info on some of the "special" items I've been lucky enough to possess as the official "superfan"   :D

I like the earlier modules.....#1-#8....more than some of the later ones, they seem pretty representative of the Dungeon Crawl Classics experience.  I enjoyed #28 Into the Wilds, which is sort of a lesser Keep on the Borderlands, and seems like a nice beginning adventure to start out a party.  I'm reading through The Adventure Begins right now, the hardback that has 20 first level adventures.  They are pretty hit and miss, but all seem to have a certain standard that they never go below....nothing really awful, in other words.

Thanks B  8)



Trying to fill the spot with a first print of them though.



The easiest way to tell between the earlier and latest re-prints is that the earlier (low numbered ones) have the white rectangle with the 'cowboy & lasso' picture on the cover.



The reprints have the 'triceratops'.



Please let me know if you find any more though :wink:



Jury's still out with me on which are my best 5. So far ICotH (12.5) + 12 the Blackguard's revenge would be 2 of my pick. I can just visualize the players in the frozen hills/mountains.

The DCC #14 cover with the wrong pages inside arrived yesterday.  I don't have the right Flash player here at work . . . but here's a link for the rest of you:

This is my second week of using a cell phone camera and my second day of using Photobucket, so I don't know how well it works.

Personal favorites: Mysterious Tower (#3) and Crypt of the Devil Lich (#13).  For just pure eye-candy, I'll also buy any other DCC with an Erol Otus cover, even if the actual adventure is uneven.

That was my strategy early on.  Just buy anything with an Otus cover.  I love them!   :D

What a great acquisition at that price.  Congrats, Brendon!

Thanks Stephen,

Gus' list prompted me to go back through my DCCs and I realized I didn't have this one  :oops:

Thought one wouldn't come up for a while, so....

The price was just a little bit lower than I thought, so quite happy  :)
