Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG Now Available for Pre-Order

Today is Dungeon Crawl Classics Day over at the Goodman Games website.

Glory & Gold Won by Sorcery & Sword

You’re no hero.

You’re a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.

Return to the glory days of fantasy with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Adventure as 1974 intended you to, with modern rules grounded in the origins of sword & sorcery. Fast play, cryptic secrets, and a mysterious past await you: turn the page…

Rules Set: DCC RPG, an OGL system that cross-breeds Appendix N with a streamlined version of 3E.

Thanks for the heads up. I definitely be picking this one up and looking through it.

I got to play in that at GaryCon last was fun but very rushed so I'm not sure I will commit to it until I can actually thumb through it.

The magic system sounds great!

It does sound really interesting, but I'll have to see more before I decide to buy it or not.

The artists include Peter Mullen, Erol Otus, and Jim Roslof? I'll get a copy just for that.
