RIIIGHT?! Pre-orders are getting their copies really soon. I'm getting really anxious.

I still can't ship Crawl!, but I wish. I love the beat-up copy of the DMG, mine looks just like that.

I can smell the faux leather bound cover of the Heavy Metal edition from here! I swear, it's close. Which means the Crawl! creeps even closer to being shipped. I thought I'd share this:

AN OSR ZINE MEME

This guy started it: http://fightingfantasist.blogspot.com/2012/04/your-blog-is-your-eighties-fanzine.html. I decided to take on the challenge and not just stop at a cover, but make a full on zine using the last several posts from my D&D Blog (which is found here: http://dakdm.straycouches.com. All articles appeared there first.)

Some of the posts were plugs for Crawl!, so I thought I'd get clever and make them ads. I also took a plug for the DCC RPG PDF and made that an ad too. It took me few hours, most of it spent formatting text and re-doing some art so it matches a style that I like. I highly recommend comparing the original posts with the ones found in the zine. No way was I perfect, but the analog version was fun to figure out. As a special bonus, it features new art from Crawl! fanzine and an early version of an article that will be appearing in Crawl! No.2! Best of all, I'm making this available free as a PDF, in both a readable and printable format. I might also release it as an epub ebook, we'll see. 

Any way, I present to you REV. DAK D.M., zine no. 8: 

PDF for reading This will take you to the box.com site where you read it online or download. (I took down the embed, it was slowing down the site.

PDF for printing The "for printing" version is formatted (impossed) for double-sided (duplex) printing on Letter sized paper (A4 should work fine, too.) Just print double-sided, fold & staple!

If someone wants me to send them a printed version, I can do that! Dwolla, Paypal or Google Wallet $2 ($3 if you're in Canada, and $3.50 overseas) to rev.dak@straycouches.com or just email me. Make sure you let me know what you're buying (DAK, D.M. No.8). Keep in mind that this won't be the highest quality paper (Crawl! will be printed on premium paper.) This will be cheap, but cool. Also note that there aren't any back issues. Issues 1 through 7 don't exist!

DCC RPG PDF for Pre-Orders is out!

If you pre-ordered a copy of DCC RPG before April 1st, you would have recieved an email to download the full copy of DCC RPG PDF!

I have to say, it is beautiful. Full color covers and end papers are included, and they're amazing.

This also means the game has been approved for PRINT! Can you smell it? I can't wait to lay my hands on this Mighty Tome.

The general release of the PDF should be soon. Unfortunately I still can't send Crawl! No.1 until the book gets released.
