Free RPG Day 2018

So, Free RPG Day 2018 involved several firsts for me. It was my first Free RPG Day, it was my first time as a player (instead of a judge) of Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, it was my first time as a player (instead of a judge) at the Dragon's Roost, and it was my first time receiving swag at a DCC RPG Road Crew event.

BEHOLD


As you can see above, I was given the DCC RPG bookmark/character sheet of my choice, a copy of the Sanctum Sanctorum Free RPG Day 2018 Third Party Companion, and Issue #1 of Crepuscular, the very fine DCC RPG 'zine by Joshua Burnett, who also happened to be our judge.

The adventure we played was "Sisters of the Moon Furnace" by Marc Bishop. When I say "we" I mean all two of us, because there were two players, but we were given eight 0-level characters each to compensate. Towards the end, as our party had been whittled down to toothpicks, we were each given two extra characters for the final encounter. In the end, all of my original eight were slain, but one (or maybe both) of my reinforcements made it to safety. Alas, poor Greb the Gravedigger, who never flinched from danger and was mere cubits from safety, perished in the last moments of the adventure. Rest in Peace also Flope the Ropemaker, Squire Rendar, Herkimer the Hunter, Iggy the Noble, Grandalf the Guild Beggar, Hooloo the Herbalist, and Spudric the Potato Farmer.

Mr. Burnett has posted the official session report on his blog, the beautifully named Bernie the Flumph! If you get a chance to play DCC RPG with him, I suggest you take it. And thank you, Mr. Burnett, for a glorious if blood-spattered Free RPG Day!
