Well I did it after all (and other updates)

I picked up a copy of Dungeon Crawl Classics.

I picked it up because I am a fan of Goodman Games and they have always had a quality product in the past.  It is also on sale now at DriveThruRPG.

I seriously doubt I will play this game and if I do it won't be with d7s or anything like that.
But I am enjoying the read so far and maybe there is something in this for my AD&D1 game.

There is a lot to get through.

In other news...
I picked up my Kickstarter Supporter PDF copy of the Adventurer Conqueror King System Player's Companion.

There is a lot of great stuff in this book as well.  I am going to hold off on a proper review till it is released on DriveThruRPG as well.  But I will say this, I am pleased with the Witch and Warlock classes (so expect to hear some more about those) and the Class Construction rules look very interesting.

I finished reading through the Swords and Wizardry Complete Rulebook from Frog God Games.  Again, some neat ideas, but I am not sure if I'll every play it or run it.  But it is a great toolbox for a near Editionless D&D.  More on it and my third in-depth dive into Lamentations of the Flame Princess in another post.

I'd love to run Dungeon Crawl Classics as is.

But unfortunately there's so much other stuff to play. And I'm trying to get new people into the hobby and DCC explicitly says its for veteran gamers. So, it'll have to get put aside for now.

Still, DCC is full of lots of cool stuff. I'm using the "Funnelling System" for my Expeditions in the Northlands Campaign.

I love DCC. I love the flavor of it and have come up with material for it. However, I highly doubt that I'll ever talk a group into playing it.
