Goodman Games launched their Peril on the Purple Planet Kickstarter recently, and it’s already managed to be meet its low funding goal of $10,000 with another 29 days to go. For Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, this expansion is a boxed set that is inspired by Edgar Rice Burrough’s Barsoom and Robert E. Howard’s Almuric books; currently the planetary romance genre has got a large mindshare with much of the OSR community and this draws upon it, but adding the unique DCC RPG spin to it as can be seen in the picture below.
The adventure has been written by Harley “Strohdor” Stroh, who has a wealth of non-DCC RPG credits to his name (many DCC adventures, Dave Arneson’s Blackmoor), and it’s coming with some special features including wraparound covers and an actual hex crawl. While DCC RPG as a game is seen by many people as a little too wild or gonzo for actual play, modules for the game can be easily used with any other OSR game system.
The campaign is due to end on August 11th, 2014.
