Purple Sorcerer Kickstarter Underway...

Thanks to everyone that has already supported our latest campaign: Dread Specters of the Shrieking Vale! It's a jungle adventure and campaign setting written by my son Ben, who has been excited about creating DCC content since he was a little guy. Luckily he's grown up to be a great writer, and I th...

Re: Lighthouse at Shipbreaker Shoals now available

This is a cool little adventure well suited for con play, since it looks on first read that it would easily fit into a 3-4 hour window. And most of us can always use a fun little seaside village/personalities to drop into the campaign when needed. (And its loose ties to Frawgs and Larvik Island give...

Yep, did the same thing: that $50 vanished pretty quickly. :)

And Raven-Crowking’s advice is excellent. (As always).

Re: Weird dice.

I live in Brazil, and here it's close to impossible to get the weird dice. It's very difficult to buy online because it gets extremmely expensive.

Re: too political for GFA?

So if the core book is Step 1, can anyone offer some recommendations for Step 2…? As other has stated, there really is no step two: it’s a tenant of Joseph Goodman that everything needed is in the core book, and that happily remains true! However, as you’ve noticed, there is an incredibly creative ...

Re: NPC exposition and endless flavor text

I agree with Stephen that keeping it brief is best. (If the player's basic motivations can't be summed up in a couple of paragraphs, things likely need reworking). But you can certainly provide more background to the judge, and then have this info revealed to the players piecemeal throughout the tex...

They all 'work' fantastically, but the fourth printing does have quite a few additional pieces of art. (Adding to the absurd amount of cool images in the other printings).

Each of the adventures do stand alone, but it certainly can't hurt to have Perils to help streamline starting any of the adventures.

Send me your RPGNow email address to info (at) purplesorcerer (dot) com, and I'll send you a Perils download code to tide you over until GenCon. ;)
