Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Dungeon Crawl Classics?
Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) is a tabletop role-playing game (RPG) that was first published in 2012 by Goodman Games. It is designed to emulate the style and feel of classic fantasy RPGs from the 1970s and 1980s, such as Dungeons & Dragons and the original version of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay.
The game uses a unique system that emphasizes player skill and improvisation, with a focus on the unpredictability and danger of dungeon exploration. Players create characters with randomly determined abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, and then embark on adventures that typically involve exploring dungeons, fighting monsters, and gathering treasure.
DCC also incorporates a number of old-school RPG elements, such as random tables for generating encounters and events, and a high level of lethality for characters. The game has gained a dedicated following among fans of classic RPGs and has been praised for its evocative writing, imaginative art, and old-school feel.
