The Dungeon Crawl Classics beta rules were available for free from Goodman Games, and the system was getting a real shakedown cruise as playtesters kicked the tires and mixed the metaphors. Then, on Free Role-Playing Day in 2011, the DCC RPG Free Role-Playing Day Adventure Starter appeared to the delight of eager gamers everywhere.
I was one of those eager gamers.
Within we found a brief overview of the Dungeon Crawl Classics role-playing game, The Portal Under the Stars, and The Infernal Crucible of Sezrekan the Mad.
The Portal Under the Stars is the first published funnel for the Dungeon Crawl Classics role-playing game, which can double as a 1st level adventure. It was written by Joseph Goodman. The Infernal Crucible of Sezrekan the Mad is a 5th level adventure by Harley Stroh. Both adventures were reprinted in the first printing of the core rulebook.
This product offered an excellent glimpse into the game that Dungeon Crawl Classics would appear as when published, both in terms of its artwork and its writing.
