And these announcements require not one, but two special guests! You won't want to miss this seminar


    August 4 - Seven Days of Stroh, Day 7: 50% Off DCC #70: Jewels of the Carnifex

    We are currently running a kickstarter for Dungeon Crawl Classics: Peril on the Purple Planet. This is Harley Stroh’s long-awaited sword-and-planet epic, an adventure of planetary scope that flings your characters to adventures on a distant world dying slowly under a weirdling sun. But before Harley Stroh wrote this adventure, he wrote many others for Goodman Games. For seven days we’ll be spotlighting some of his prior work, and offering PDF versions at 50% off for these seven days only. If you’re not already a backer of Peril on the Purple Planet, reading Harley’s prior work may change your mind. Here then are the Seven Days of Stroh!

    DCC #70: Jewels of the Carnifex: It’s day 7 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today is our final spotlight on his work. Concluding with a focus on Punjar, we come to his first Punjar work for DCC RPG: the level 3 adventure, DCC #70 Jewels of the Carnifex. At the end of a forgotten back alley, in the weird and otherworldly marketplace of faiths known as the Bazaar of the Gods, stands the ruins of a forgotten chapel. Once the cult of the Carnifex was celebrated throughout the City of a Thousand Gates. But a band of holy warriors rose against the cult of executioners and torturers, casting down her signs and scattering her devotees to the winds. The fate of the cthonic goddess, and – more importantly – her fabled jewels remains a mystery…until this night.  Set amid the sprawling decadence of Punjar, Jewels of the Carnifex offers low-level adventurers a chance to plumb the mysteries beneath the city’s soiled streets, explore forgotten crypts lavished with weird artifacts, and – for the quick and daring – claim the lost Jewels of the Carnifex!

    If you enjoy this adventure, make sure to check out the kickstarter for kickstarter for Dungeon Crawl Classics: Peril on the Purple Planet, Harley’s current work!

    August 3 - DCC #53: Sellswords of Punjar: It’s day 6 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today we continue the look at his work on the gritty underworld. Harley continued his focus on the realm of the thief in DCC #53: Sellswords of Punjar. The rat-ridden city of Punjar eventually became Harley’s playground for a number of modules, but Sellswords of Punjar was the first. In this level 1 module originally published for D&D 4E, the PCs encounter the Beggar-King, who weaves his plots deep within the heart of the slums. Unearthing rites best left forgotten and offering up sacrifices to the loathsome Lords of Shade, the Beggar-King's ambitions threaten to unleash a horde of shadow-horrors upon Punjar's huddled masses.

    You and your fellow companions must bring the reign of the Beggar-King to an end. Your quest will take you from the rooftops of Punjar to its filthiest alleys, and beneath the streets of Punjar to the fetid heart of the city, where even the bravest of sellswords will tremble before the fell secrets of the Beggar-King of Punjar.

    August 2 - Crime Pays: It’s day 5 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today we look at some of his grittier work. Anyone who has read Harley’s work over the years knows of his interest in the gritty underworld. Whether it’s Luxor, Lankhmar, or his own Punjar, Harley has always found a way to weave the world of the thief into his work. During the D&D 4E era he was presented with the opportunity to build an entire sourcebook around this subject. Although ostensibly for 4E, most of the book is systems neutral and suitable for any rules system. Crime Pays: A Godfather's Grimoire includes everything a player or DM needs to bring the grim and gritty underworld into stark focus in a fantasy world. Forget thieves’ guilds – this is the mafia in a world of dragons and magic! Form your own band of rogues, make a bid for master of thieves, and win a king's ransom in jewels...but above all, don't get caught. This sourcebook includes rules for occupying a neighborhood, recruiting mobsters, hiring made men, and running your own rackets, as well as a new stat block system for tracking the stats of your own mob (respect, infamy, defense, upkeep, and territory).

    August 1 - DCC #28: Into the Wilds: It’s day 4 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today we look at another DCC module by Harley Stroh. After the success of DCC #17: Legacy of the Savage Kings, Harley returned with another exploration-style adventure in DCC #28: Into the Wilds. This classic cavern complex is reminiscent of Keep on the Borderlands, but presents a suspenseful plotline that reveals itself slowly as the heroes progress in their exploration. Published as a level 1-3 adventure for D&D 3.5, Into the Wilds sends the adventurers to Wildsgate, a frontier keep beset by a wicked curse and savage foes. In their battles against bat-riding goblins, savage cannibals, and evil rebels, the heroes uncover rumors of a lost vault left behind by the infamous thief Zamuk the Swift. Along the way they meet villagers with hidden agendas, discover a nefarious scheme, and learn the lore of the Wilds!

    July 31 - Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan: It’s day 3 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today we look at a 4E adventure by Harley Stroh. While D&D 4E certainly went in a direction that not everyone appreciated, Harley kept Goodman Games true to its roots by writing outstanding adventures under every rules set. For this licensed project, Goodman Games retained the rights to write an adventure based around Frank Frazetta’s iconic work and its comic book interpretation. Harley brought it to life as a level 7-9 adventure. This is your chance to journey through the world of Frank Frazetta and his vision of Death Dealer!

    July 30 - Age of Cthulhu #1: Death in Luxor: It’s day 2 of the Seven Days of Stroh, and today we look at a Call of Cthulhu adventure by Harley Stroh. This was Harley’s first horror work with Goodman Games, and launched the Age of Cthulhu line. In the age of the pharaohs, a great and unfathomable evil rose from the murky depths to cast its gibbous shadow over ancient Egypt. At the cost of his empire, Ramesses III imprisoned the horror beneath the sands of Luxor, where it has slumbered ever since. In 1924, a team of visiting archeologists unearthed the last remaining testament of that ancient mystery, only to unleash a terror from out of time. Now death stalks the dusty streets of Luxor and a new age of horror is at hand. Can your investigators succeed where the mightiest of pharaohs have failed? Or will they fall victim to Luxor's secret past?

    July 29 - DCC #17: Legacy of the Savage Kings: A D&D 3.5 adventure for levels 4-6, by Harley Stroh. This was Harley’s first published work with Goodman Games, and also features interior art by Doug Kovacs. It is an excellent exploration-style adventure where the PCs gradually unearth a greater mystery. For centuries, the Great Swamp has hidden hints of an ancient culture of barbarian kings. While passing through this miserable bog, the PCs encounter Stygoth the Damned, a half-dead black dragon driven mad by a mysterious disease. Delving further, the heroes discover that the disease is tied to the very swamp itself. A great corruption once infested this place, destroying the savage barbarian kings and leaving only mighty statues as their legacy. Now this corruption has returned, and a terrible Witch Queen is mining the corrupted swamp-earth to produce evil, blighted artifacts. In order to stop the spread of these evil weapons, the heroes must enter the ancient caves of the savage kings, put to rest the corrupt legacy of their downfall, end the disease that scars the land, and then face off against the Witch Queen herself.

He will leave with a soul at the end of the night. The only question is: Whose?

The only thing standing between your present circumstances and a life of fabulous wealth is a pesky, slumbering elder god with a penchant for consuming entire worlds, an endless army of vat-grown hybrid monstrosities, a veritable tidal wave of disembodied eyes with awesome powers, giant acid worms, and a curse with the power to rip the still-living eyes from your skull.

The setting material provides a sufficient level of detail (sometimes misplaced) to allow DMs to run several campaigns and gain very different perspectives on the game world.”
    • World vs. Hero: “Genuine soul-searching like the kind provoked by the world of Amethyst Foundations is priceless; it is always the starting point or the end product of the best kinds of storytelling.”
    • Grand Experiment: “Overall, Amethyst looks like a very solid offering in the GSL for settings. I hope we see more of it.”

    4/15/02 - Just announced: The Complete Guide to Velociraptors is scheduled for July release!

    3/31/02 - We just got back from the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas. (Well, we actually got back last week; we just haven't updated the web site till now!) The show was great. We showed off a preview of the Cretasus Adventure Guide (which is at the printers now), and everyone loved it!

    We've added a new feature to the web site: Broncosaurus Recs - our collection of small press recommendations for readers of Broncosaurus Rex. If you like Broncosaurus Rex, you will probably like these games, comics, and books, too!

    We have also updated the About Goodman Games page with more contributor bios - check them out!

    2/22/02 - There is a lot in development for Dinosaur Planet: Broncosaurus Rex, and we've added some sneak previews to keep you tantalized. First, the Cretasus Adventure Guide is still on schedule for April release. This volume is a must-have for the Broncosaurus Rex gamer; not only does it deliver some intriguing background information about the world of Cretasus and its inhabitants (both human and dinosaur), it also includes prestige classes for Dino Warriors and Federal Marshals, full stats and background on the Union ironclads, stats for a horde of new prehistoric beasts, complete vehicle rules, and rules and background for the alien Scray (who, as you may know, helped the Union develop their ironclads). Here is a sneak preview of some of the interior art.

    Second, many of you probably caught the sneak preview of Dinosaur Planet: Broncosaurus Rex in Gaming Frontiers #1. There will be an original article in Gaming Frontiers #2 (due out in April) covering the psionic powers of the protoceratops. The article also expands on the role of the alien Scray in the development of Cretasus, and spotlights some of their psychic weapons. Here is a sneak preview of some of the art.

    Finally, we have updated a few sections of the web site. About Goodman Games includes links to the sites of some of our contributors, and About Broncosaurus Rex now includes links to several reviews of the game (all of which have been quite enthusiastic!).
