Description:

You’re no hero.

You’re an adventurer: 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.

Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) is a delightfully gonzo game of light-hearted, bloody dungeoneering. In it, you’ll each play 3 or 4 peasants–farmers, butchers, shoe-makers–who have taken it upon themselves to root out the mysterious evil that has taken hold in the old ruins out in the woods. This is a terrible idea, and most of this mob of well-intentioned fools will die horribly! But, those fortunate few who survive these horrors will come out the other side hardened adventurers.

Characters are randomly created, so I’ll be providing pre-mades. I’ll bring a wide selection of adventures, in case players are already familiar with one of them. The following are good examples of the sort of content:

Frozen in Time: Eons-old secrets slumber beneath the forbidden Ghost Ice. Since the time of the Elders, the local tribes have shunned the crawling glacier, knowing it as taboo land that slays all who tread its frigid expanse. Now, the Ghost Ice has shattered, revealing hints at deeper mysteries entombed within its icy grasp. Strange machines and wonderful horrors stir beneath the ice…

Sailors on the Starless Sea: Since time immemorial you and your people have toiled in the shadow of the cyclopean ruins. Of mysterious origins and the source of many a superstition, they have always been considered a secret best left unknown by the folk of your hamlet. But now something stirs beneath the crumbling blocks. Beastmen howl in the night and your fellow villagers are snatched from their beds. With no heroes to defend you, who will rise to stand against the encircling darkness? The secrets of Chaos are yours to unearth, but at what cost to sanity or soul?

The Hole in the Sky: The Lady in Blue, a mysterious figure of cosmic power, enlists a band of simple peasants for a strange task. They are to follow an invisible bridge until they arrive at a hole in the sky – and then jump through. Death awaits all but the bravest, strongest, and luckiest, but the Lady offers a reward beyond all the riches of the world: the chance to change the very stars these peasants were born under, and thus change their destiny.
