The new Kickstarter for Bears Want to Kill You has already surpassed its funding requirement and is to its final 3 days (). One last stretch goal remains, a slipcase for the hardcover edition! If there is one thing that we DCC folks go crazy for, it is slipcases! Let’s try to make this happen!
Eisner Award winning Artist Ethan Nicolle is a friend of the show, and graciously allows us to use his artistic creations and stat up the mayhem inducing horrors for DCC. Just because he’s nice. Seriously. So let’s return that love and support his book of ursine mayhem!
So, we continue to build on our partnership with Axe Cop co-creator Ethan Nicolle in an effort to warn of the impending bearmageddon as well as bring nightmarish inspiration to your DCC table.
“How to defeat them: There is a soft spot between the chest and belly that can be speared. Horns can be chained to a moving train. Also, feed it bombs.”
– Dickinson Killdeer, Dickinson Killdeer’s Guide to Bears of the Apocalypse
Created by the mad wizard Ethcolle, the tribearatops is an absolute horror of fur and scales. A force of utter devastation, the tribearatops rivals dragons for sheer destructive power. It is thus quite fortunate that the creature is also slow moving – as entire villages have been known to literally relocate their structures out of the monsters path.
Tribearatops: Init +0; Atk bite +6 melee (3d6), gore +8 melee (2d12 + poison), stomp +4 melee (3d10), or tail sweep +10 melee (1d16 + DC 20 Reflex or knocked prone); AC 35; HD 10d14; MV 20’; Act 2d24; SP dragon crits, long tail, maternal, poison, vulnerable spot (AC 18); SV Fort +8, Ref +6, Will +3; AL C.
Long tail: The tribearatops’ tail is long enough that, on a successful hit, additional targets within 5′ must make a Reflex save vs. 15 or also be struck prone.
Maternal: The normally slow moving creature enters a frenzy should its young be threatened, doubling both its Move and number of attacks.
Poison: Tribearatops horns are coated with naturally occurring Oxytocin. Merely coming into contact with the horn requires a DC 15 Fort save while being impaled by the horn increases the DC to 20. Failure results in the victim being overwhelmed by emotion and leaping onto the horn and killing themselves in sacrifice.
Vulnerable spot: There is a single vulnerable spot on the beast which may be successfully targeted with a precision shot Mighty Deed with a result of 6+.
Tribearatops (both art and concept) are the creation of Axe Cop co-creator Ethan Nicolle (@axecop) and is used with his kind permission. These, and a slew of other ursine horrors can be found in the pages of Bearmageddon as well as within Dickinson Killdeer’s Guide to Bears of the Apocalypse.
This is our third year doing our Free RPG Day list and this year DCC lands in Asia for Free RPG Day!
The Dice Latté in Seoul, Korea will be running at least one table of DCC. As one of only two locations in all of Asia (the other is in Thailand) listed as participating in Free RPG Day, it is wonderful to see that DCC will be there.
The first round of winners was declared, their monsters triumphant!
The second round of winners was heralded for their character classes ascendant!
The third round of winners was announced, their spells truly phlogistonic!
The fourth round of winners reported, their creativity having run amok!
Now we move on to round five of ….
Super Number 1 Contest!!
Our April contest theme was “Gonzo”, an anything goes sort of category. We were wholly unprepared for the amount of submissions that we would receive. Seriously, we will have content from the April entries popping up for a long time because…Wow! Several folks certainly wanted to be sure of a win and avalanche of content was the result (we should have contests more often). After being up all night, the drawing is finally done and soon I will enter the Prize Closet of Mysterytm to select our runner up’s prize.
As rolled at random, our winners are
1st Place – Daniel J Bishop’s The Altar of Woeful Consumption
* 1 copy of Super No. 1 Food Tower
* 1 sheet of pregen characters
2nd Place – Ian Shears’ Patron spell, Infernal Voice
* To be determined by the Prize Closet of Mysterytm
Look for these fantastic entries in upcoming Sanctum Secorum Companions!
So this is our third year building the Free RPG Day venue list. We want to be certain that everyone looking for a game can find one but we also want to be sure that every store hoping to host a game can find a Judge. Below is our list of locations actively looking for DCC Judges. This list is sure to grow, so keep an eye out.

DrivethruRPG is having a May D&D sale, advertising “all editions & all titles”. Well, upon careful examination, the sale goes further than that. Indeed, it looks like the entire DCC RPG line from Goodman Games is on sale, as well as a whole lot of other goodness. A few other DCC 3PP folks have also put some DCC materials on sale too. So, if you are a DCC fan, don’t miss out! Support the folks who are supporting the community by participating in sales like this.
Work continues on our latest Sanctum Secorum Companion. Yes…continues. We received so many contest entries for April that we are STILL counting to see how many entries we actually have so we can figure out our winners. With some of the entries as lengthy as they are, our latest issue overflows with content. We literally cannot fit it all into one sanely-sized companion ‘zine (we stopped at 30 pages because…wow) so look for lots more content to be spilling into our next issue.
Sanctum Secorum Companion #35 – Coming Soon!
