Welcome to Goodman Games!

Jack Vance comes to DCC – There was big news at Gen Con! We are very pleased to announce our continued exploration of Appendix N works using DCC RPG rules: Jack Vance’s Dying Earth! Jobe Bittman is already hard at work writing and play testing material for a release in late 2017. Like DCC Lankhmar, DCC Dying Earth will be both a setting and a rules supplement.

Gen Con seminar videos – Thanks again to you all for giving us the best Gen Con so far! Videos of most of our seminars are online for your viewing pleasure.
