So, what is Secret Santicore?
According to the Secret Santicore website: "Every year around this time, precious little gamemasters of all ages from around the world write Santicore asking for a piece of gameable content. But because Santicore is a busy abomination, he orders his minions to mix up all those wishes and send them all back.
Little DM Bobby and Judge Susie must write or draw their very best response to the wish in their stocking or Santicore will come eat them up. You would think this discourages anyone from writing Santicore, but every year the mailbag is bigger! All the entries are then published in a free, non-commercial PDF for all to use!"
The 2012 edition of Secret Santicore is a 279 page pdf, with lots of content. As is usual for mixed-system offerings, I am going to focus on what there is for Dungeon Crawl Classics. Because of the sheer volume of the work, I am only going to list material directly pertaining to Dungeon Crawl Classics.
Therefore, without further ado:
The Elven Tomb!: "Dear Secret Santicore, Please grant me an elven tomb for adventurers to loot: map, room details, monsters, and some treasure."
"Not infrequently, bands of adventurers decide that Elvish tombs will be easy pickings. They could not be more wrong. For starters, the terrain in which the burial grounds are found is often terrifically inaccessible on foot: creek-riddled mountainsides; the low, flat parts are miserable bogs of devil’s club and slide alder, the steep parts are both slippery and sheer, and ravines and cliffs often make finding a route between two close-as-the-crow-flies places very difficult. Needless to say, there are not widely available maps to elven burial grounds, and any map purporting to be such is very likely false.
The difficulty of the terrain, though, pales in comparison to the threats posed by the various inhabitants of the grounds. In addition to the spirits of the trees themselves, the burial grounds are home to animals natural (grizzly bear, dire wolf, mountain lion) and supernatural (shambling mound, dryad [see below])."
Mole Men A PC Race for DCC and OSR Games: "Dear Secret Santicore, Please grant me a PC race of Mole-Men. Ideally compatible with either Microlite20 or Dungeon Crawl Classics, but I will be more than happy with any OSR-friendly system."
This is a full Dungeon Crawl Classics "race as class" character class by Jeremy Deram.
Much (if not all) of the remaining content may easily be modified for use with Dungeon Crawl Classics, but is not specifically designed for the game.
Ho ho ho! Roll for initiative, fool!
