BLACKDIRGE DUNGEON DENIZENS PDF

One of the refreshing elements of reading Appendix N books is that they have a knack for presenting creatures in a fresh manner. Most of the Appendix N books were published before the genre of "fantasy" existed. There was a time where "adventure" books sometimes took place in fantastic settings, but they all fell into the "adventure" category. Somewhere along the way, the "fantasy" category evolved. What that means is that fantasy books published in the "pre-genre" era have this wonderful naivete about the nature of the creatures they present.

Insofar as the published modules go, this means a moratorium on using existing monsters. Every combat encounter is with a new critter designed for that encounter.

In games, players are constantly unsure of what they face. Is that weird cultist with no face more powerful than me, or not? The four-legged lizard with the gold horn and the hypnotic eyes You get the idea: no player has any idea of the nature of their opponents, beyond what is described, and many of the creatures are truly weird and unusual.

The DCC RPG also encourages judges to make minor changes to monsters in order to make them more interesting for players to encounter. Make your orcs blue instead of green, and watch what happens. What powers do they have? For undead, give them perfectly preserved bodies and normal skin-and-bones. Why do they have to rot? Every adventure needs to have specific foes that are thematically appropriate and maintain the sense of true fantasy and novelty.

What do you guys think? Do people want a lot of monster books? Thanks for this write up, Joseph. It really sounds cool, but I struggled a bit with it. I like the idea of the DCC modules having a moratorium on using existing monsters, at least partially. I would occasionally like to see some of the classics make a cameo. It is kind of like the comfort food of fantasy RPGs. Sometimes you just want something bog standard and well known.

Keeping the players on their toes is a good thing, however. Keep the creatures unpredictable, but part of that unpredictability could include not knowing when something well known is going to be thrown at them.

The CoC book contains a fairly short section on the main Mythos monsters and other assorted creatures that are likely to show up in adventures. As far as I know there has never been a specific "bestiary" sort of book published for CoC by Chaosium. Then I reread your post. As long as most of the standards are included in the main DCC book kobolds, orc, goblins, etc.

I will be happy. The more esoteric stuff can be the realm of 3PP. I just want to see the basics covered. I would still like to see the "Dungeon Denizens" book ported, but as long as conversion from 3. The additional one would be called the "DCC Annual" for , , etc. That would be on top of lots of modules, of course, and the basics like a DM screen. That ought to keep it simple. I like this idea, with the exception of "new rules, errata, clarifications".

Make any new rules presented in the Annuals be optional rules. Maybe also have a section in published modules which has suggestions for integrating certain Annuals into the adventure. As for errata and clarifications, definitely include these in subsequent printings of the rulebook to which they apply.

Also have the errata for a specific book be a free download from the website. Having rules changes be spread out across multiple books will get confusing, and makes the Annuals required purchases. If the Annuals have really cool additions to the game, like all monsters from published DCC modules in the past year, they will desirable on their own. I really like the idea of the core DCC book being the only book necessary for play, just like the core CoC book is the only one a Keeper needs to buy.

Every other additional rulebook should be an optional addition to the game. I would like DCC to adopt this philosophy.

Blackdirge's Dungeon Denizens Review

Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background. For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book.

A smart layout and familiar format deliver GMs a plethora of adversaries to throw at their players ranging from level 1 right on up to level BDD goes a step further, though, even than the core book, offering monsters categorized not only by level, but also by origin, type, and keyword. Drawing from their development in the Dungeon Crawl Classics line, many of these monsters are thoroughly and creatively described. BDD is illustrated by a number of artists with a variety of styles. The cover-art is strong and catchy, as is much of the interior art. The blackline art within ranges from edgy to retro, simple to elaborate.
