View Full Version : DCC (Frost) Giants! Coming Soon to the Fantasy Grounds Store!

September 25th, 2022, 21:01
Greetings DCC fans,

I started working on the "classic" DCC adventure Beyond the Black Gate (https://goodman-games.com/store/product/dungeon-crawl-classics-72-beyond-the-black-gate-2nd-printing/) by Harley Stroh. Veterans of Harley's low-level adventure Doom of the Savage Kings (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.php?id=GGDCCFGGMG50665P) will not be surprised to hear that this one is chock full of Viking-flavored NPCs and treasure! And there are some special treats in this one... Fans of Robert E. Howard's The Frost-Giant's Daughter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Frost-Giant%27s_Daughter), one of the earliest Conan the Cimmerian short stories, will find plenty to like, and D&D Classic enthusiasts should keep an eye out for some odd critters from the AD&D module G2 Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.php?id=WOTC2EG2). You can expect the same colorful battlemaps featured in recent DCC releases for the FG store, which will highlight some of the beautiful winter-themed art from my friends at Inkarnate (https://inkarnate.com/).

The story entries are finished, but maps are the rate-limiting step. I will share updates with a few screenshots as the work progresses.

Happy gaming!

Just working on the main map, not bad so far.

I think I just realized why it's called "the black gate." The screenshot shows the lower half of this map, which can be used for random encounters as well. I need to add LOS occluders and encounter tokens to the player maps and then convert the bonus adventure (no fancy maps for that one), so I'm probably a couple weeks away from submission. This should hit the store sometime in December hopefully.

Cool, I just picked up Sea Queen Escapes. Either it just came out or I missed its release somehow.

I saw it in the weekly email, which I think is just new releases. We have a decent selection of DCC modules in the FG store now. Just in time for Goodman Games to go all-in on Weird West!

I submitted this for review, so you should see this in the store sometime in the second half of December - just in time for winter! Goodman Games went with ice giants instead of frost giants - I wonder what the story is behind that. This adventure seems like a lot of fun, and as usual, I think you'll enjoy the color maps. I played the first few encounter areas in the Thrice-Tenth Kingdom a few years ago (we skipped the prologue for some reason), and then our judge suddenly decided to run a completely different adventure. :confused:

Anyway, here is a map of some ruins. Not to belabor the point, but I think the map really adds to the creepy vibe of this area!
