  • SYSTEM: Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG
  • PRODUCT TYPE: boxed set and softcover adventures with a PDF code
  • RETAIL PRICE: $59.99/$9.99 each
  • DESCRIPTION: I bought this whole set, to have a new word an entire adventure path to run. In the Dying Earth Boxed Set, explore the singular world of Jack Vance’s Tales of the Dying Earth, set in the distant last days of the world, where magic and science blend together and querulous sorcerers feud endlessly. Includes Player’s Libram (64 pages), Primer of Practical Magic (104 pages), Intimate Anatomy of Several Creatures and Personages of the Twenty-First Aeon (96 pages), and a 22” x 17” map of the environs of the Dying Earth. Covers four new classes (magician, vat-thing, wayfarer, and witch), creatures, patrons, spells, new rules for grudge tokens to track the resentments that characters accumulate with every minor imprecation they encounter, and more. To create an adventure path with the modules use issue 0 as a zero level funnel, issue 1 to go to 2nd level, issues 2 and 6 for 2nd level PCs to hit third level, issues 3 and 7 for 3rd level PCs to hit 4th level, issues 4 and 8 for 4th level PCs to hit 5th level, and issue 5 to wrap up for 5th level PCs. Issue 0 involves a pilgrimage on a journey to a holy city, but the trip is full of perils. Also contains patron information for the demon Ohmvos. In issue 1 the PCs must infiltrate a demon’s temple and overcome the demon Lar-Shann, his bellowing idol, and his power-mad monks. Issue 2 includes a towering spire of gravity-defying frozen blood guarding the black IOUN stone, protected by vat-birthed monstrosities and the ghost of a long-dead magician. In issue 3 PCs must contend with corrupt merchants and demon-bound witches to reclaim the missing Crystal of Ciz, the it, relying as often on deduction and investigation as swordplay and spellcraft to solve the crime. Includes details about the City of Cuirnif, the Manse Ashtark, and a new spell. PCs travel to the lands north of the Falling Wall to discover that time itself has fractured in issue 4 and multiple timelines are woven together to create a unique adventuring experience. Issue 5 details an entire moon that the party must explore and chart in order to solve its mystery and avert disaster. The PCs are sent to deal with a predatory visp, a bizarre monster birthed under the fading sun, that’s wreaking havoc on a small village in issue 6. Issue 7 describes a haunted wizards’ laboratory containing the ring of revivification, a new magical item that can overcome death itself. Shipwrecked PCs are offered one hope of survival to rescue the son of the friendly water weird and keep the treasures she offers in return in issue 8. Includes an exotic island, a living house, and an underground alien world, all drawn from the imagination of Erol Otus.

Dying Earth is one of the best boxed sets I’ve ever seen. So well designed and capturing its subject matter and reminding me of the old TSR sets in all the right ways but vastly improved. Much like Lankhmar the GG crowd has modified their core game to fit the world of the Dying Earth. The adventures are home runs and the Kickstarter extras are excellent.

I couldn't agree more. I opened the box up and saw that world map and the started reading. The world, the new classes, the adventures. Not dungeon crawls, which are great in themselves, but full fledged exciting travel and intrigue and discovery. Even exploring another world. It was like discovering Dark Sun for the first time again.

We made 0 level characters last night and start a new campaign next Wednesday. Magical moustaches from the annual are canon of course. I don't think I've been this excited to judge since D&D 3.0 came out in 2000.

I like the Dying Earth boxed set we got but part of its long drawn out development was having to start over when the original writer for it - Jobe Bittman - left the project. And given what we ended up getting and Jobe's other work I can't help but feel like his version might have been even better.

Glad I wasn't following along then, because this is the best RPG purchase I've made in years. Really inspires me.
