Gearing up for a Dungeon Crawl Classic

For the past few months, I’ve participated (when able) in Better World Books - Goshen’s Thursday game night. In a leap of faith, the store decided to stay open a few hours later on Thursdays.

They formed the Better World Board Gamers group but have expanded to role-playing games. As , the number of role-players has grown and I’m looking for a different style of game.

My initial thought was to run Labyrinth Lord or Swords & Wizardry. Since neither of those systems have core books for retailers, I wanted to run a game that Better World could put on its shelf. I also wanted a game that fit the casual, kick in the door environment.

I’m going to run a Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC 🔍) character funnel one-shot on a Thursday night September 8th. I haven’t run it, nor played DCC before, but I’m familiar enough with the rules. Goodman Games overall support and output is impressive.

It harkens back to the days when Judge’s Guild was producing a massive amount of product for Dungeons and Dragons. There is an excellent interview at Save or Die with Bob Bledsaw Jr. regarding Judge’s Guild.

I’m not looking for anything deep, but for a chance to introduce different perspectives on game play and adjacent game systems.
