The DCC Xcrawl Amateur Rough Grimer tournament funnel was a great success. Nearly 50 competitors met their end in Fans Bring the Weapons Death Matches (featuring a can of pudding wrapped in barbed wire), swimming pools filled with sharks, mud slugs, and Virtual Reality Spell Duels and Vehicle Mayhem. Thanks to Phantom Games for hosting, +Jon S for handling Vehicle Mayhem, +dave eightc for the trophies, and +bre for the madness that is Xcrawl!

DCC RPG PGH Presents: Xcrawl Rough Grimer Amateur Tournament

This Free RPG Day, join us for Pittsburgh's Fourth Annual Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game Tournament!

The Xcrawl Rough Grimer Amateur Tournament is rolling town. This is the perfect opportunity for an unsigned Xcrawl competitor to get a sponsorship, a contract with an established team, or an invitation to the next big tournament. Mud! Guts! Fire! Slime! Blood! Only the strongest will survive!

The Xcrawl Rough Grimer is a DCC RPG zero level tournament based on the Xcrawl Universe of Brendan LaSalle. No experience necessary to play and drop-ins are welcome throughout the session. Play your characters until s/he dies, then the next player tags in. Winners will be determined by the character with the most survived encounters, with prizes going to the top three!

The tournament will run from 12:00 PM (noon) until 4:45 PM. Prizes will be awarded at 5:00 PM. Must be present at 5:00 to win.

Probably going to run from 12:00 to 5:00 PM.

Not exactly sure what we're doing yet, but it will likely be a tournament of some sort and hopefully we can get trophies again. More details soon.

DCC RPG Pittsburgh Presents: Harley Stroh's "Warlord's of the Purple Planet"! Warlords of the Purple Planet is war/board game, set on the Purple Planet and uses DCC Funky Dice and mechanisms.

You are the commander of a ravening horde of man-beasts, battling for supremacy on a dying planet. To be named World Emperor you will need to survive rival warbands, dread monsters, and the unforgiving environs of the Purple Planet! Warlords of the Purple Planet is a bloody hex-crawling war game set beneath the weirdling sun!

Jim and I are very excited about this special playtest event at Phantom of the Attic this month! Players will be submitted as playtesters and may appear in the final product.

DCC RPG Pittsburgh Presents: The Undertaker and His Pals & Dark Trails: The Hunger.

+Michael Bolam and +James Walls are bringing the horror in February!

Mike will be playtesting his new adventure "The Undertaker and His Pals." A village is disturbed by the mysterious deaths of its citizens, and one boy believes it is somehow related to the new undertaker in town. Unfortunately, the townsfolk think he's overreacting, so he's come to the party of heroes that just rolled into town. Killer spheres, dwarf minions, doorways to the unknown. If this 3rd level adventure doesn't scare you, you're already dead!

Jim is bringing a DCC Dark Trails hexcrawl known as "The Hunger". The party is enroute to Utah when something goes wrong west of Denver. Dark Trails is a weird west setting using the Dungeon Crawl Classics rules. It is currently in development, and this will be a playtest.

As always, no experience expected or required to play. We'll provide characters, instruction, and extra dice. You just need to show up. We're going to have two judges for the event, so we should be able to handle up to 12-14 players.

Phantom of the Attic Games

DCC RPG Pittsburgh is back for November with a special event and a special guest -- Jonathan Snodgrass. Jonathan is a local DCC Judge and game designer. He will be bringing his player-versus-player vehicle combat tournament to Phantom of the Attic Games. Jim and I will likely be playing, so if you've ever wanted the opportunity to kill us, here's your chance!

The Disciples of the Wheel is the baddest gang in the Wasteland and they're holding a race across the wastes—risk it all in a deadly, no holds barred vehicular massacre!

This is a playtest - experimental DCC/MCC vehicle combat rules will be used.

Standard funnel format: as a player is eliminated, the next steps in.

As always, no experience expected or required to play. We'll provide characters, instruction, and extra dice. You just need to show up. Because this is a tournament-style event, we should be able to handle any number of players!
