The Adventures will be:

 CMP 2017-05: The Heart of it All

Friday  3 – 7                      

When the son of an international crime lord’s son goes missing a gang war is ready to erupt out of the shadows; and that would be bad for biz.  Perhaps some neutral, outsiders can run the shadows quick enough to keep the peace – such as it is.

CMP 2017-06: A Friend in Need

Friday 8 – 12                     

Keep your friends close and well…  When a deep, undercover operative is double crossed he needs his hoop pulled from the flames.  Then, there is the small matter of dealing with the one who betrayed him.

CMP 2017-07: Six Way Split

Saturday 9 – 1                      

Some corporate brainiac has decided he wants to jump to a rival corporation.  The receiving corporation has hired a team of Shadowrunners to extract him.  Now, a third corporation has hired you to divert Mr. Braniac to them.  It turns out this guy is a lot hotter than what anyone expected.

CMP 2017-08: Farming the Shadows

Saturday 2 – 6                    

Some heavy pay data has recently revealed a shadow operation out in farm country.  The Johnsons want it checked out and intel retrieved.  Grass, a few trees, some cows in a field around an old barn and the smell of country fresh air; you may need bigger guns.

SRM 08-04: Dirty Laundry

Saturday 8 – 12                

When all hell breaks loose and the world catches on fire, Mr. Johnson hands you a fat paycheck and a fire hose, wishes you good luck, and takes off in his spaceship to Venus.

SRM 08-05: Sleeping Giants

Sunday 9 – 1                       

The bugs are showing back up in Chicago and no one seems to think it’s their problem. Time to gather the evidence to convince the corporations to move.

SRM 08- 06: Final Countdown

Sunday 2 – 6                       

The Joint Corporate Strike Force has failed, but there still may be a window to end the bug threat to Chicago, once and for all.

MACE West 2018: The Monster Hunters’ Club RPG for Savage Worlds

A new RPG setting for Savage Worlds, The Monster Hunters’ Club, will premier at MACE West 2018.  Saturday and Sunday Morning, Brandi Greene will run a  series of adventures simpel called Scenario A and B.

The Monster Hunters’ Club is a licensed setting for the Savage Worlds Roleplaying Game set in the 1980s and inspired by kids’ adventure and horror films, television, and novels like E.T. The Extra-TerrestrialThe GooniesThe Monster SquadThe Lost BoysFright Night, ItSuper 8Stranger Things, and many more. Players take on the roles of children, growing up in the 80s, who become heroes. The Monster Hunters’ Club is an officially licensed Savage Worlds product, and requires the Savage Worlds Deluxe Core Rules to play.

A preview of The Monster Hunters’ Club is available on DriveThruRPG. Please click on the link in the text, or click on the Preview button above to download our FREE preview from DriveThruRPG.

The Game!

Something strange is happening in the town of Gulf Haven. Horrible creatures are coming to life. The adults seem blind to the entire thing. It’s up to you to find out what is happening, and stop it before it’s too late!

Growing up in the 1980s…

You’ve got Saturday morning cartoons, a tree fort, a boombox, a fast bike, and oh…

Monsters are real.

You heard me.

Don’t bother telling your parents. Grown-ups can’t see ‘em. When something gets smashed up, they blame us. When somebody goes missing, they blame someone from out of town, or maybe the Russians. The monsters are real though, and it’s up to us to do something about it.

That’s right, between babysitting your little sister, dodging bullies like Scotty Mangrum, and surviving middle school, you also have to figure out how to fix the monster problem.

You can’t phone home, and there’s nobody you can call. It’s up to you to save the town, and maybe even the world!

MACE West 2018: Dungeon Crawl Classics Inferno Road Tournament

MACE West 2018 is proud to be hosting a Dungeon Crawl Classic Inferno Road Tournament.  Kevin Heur and Michael Jones are heading up this effort.  You may contact us with any questions.  If we can not answer, we will forward your email to Kevin or Mike.

INFERNO ROAD @ MACE WEST 2018

Saturday, March 10th starting at 2pm.  Asheville, North Carolina

An insane DCCRPG death metal tournament in a nightmarish hellscape cranked up to 11 and beyond. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll are just the beginning. YOU ARE THE DAMNED!

Slaved to the overlords of Hell. A soulless grub in a sea of grubs, endlessly writhing in the burning pits of the inferno. Your eternity is suffering with the gnawing hunger for a soul… any soul… ALL souls. Plucked from obscurity and forced on board a Hellwagon in service to a Duke of Hell, you and your ‘companions’ race to overtake Satan’s Wives, pregnant with fresh souls for the Prince of Darkness. With every soul you devour your power will grow, perhaps enough to take on the the Devil himself?

RATED M FOR MATURE.  Trigger Warning: EVERYTHING


About Dungeon Crawl Classics

Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) is a series of roleplaying adventure modules published by Goodman Games, most of which use the d20 open gaming license. It includes more than 73 adventures, and features celebrated game designers such as Michael Mearls, Dave Arneson, and Monte Cook, as well as classic TSR artists like Jeff Dee, Erol Otus, Jim Roslof, and Jim Holloway. The DCC series harkens back to classic 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons modules in content and style.

The series’ design ethos is summed up by the following statement that is included in every DCC:

Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics don’t waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren’t meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you fear, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.
