Out of the howling wilderness,
Amidst sunken cities,
And long-buried secrets,
Man has forged a sword and cast off his chains.
Swords and Sorcery and Metal Gods.
Danger, treasure, blood and glory, all mixed up in a blender
And served up in Golden Ur-Hadad, First City of Ore.
Enter, if you dare, the bitchin' mural
On the side of your cousin's Ford custom van.
Enter the world of the Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad.
In many ways, the authors of this zine believe the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG to be the most Metal of the Old School-style RPGs on the market today. No other RPG consistently provides for us the same feeling of adventuring the through the worlds depicted on classic heavy metal album covers the way that DCC does. We love that feeling, that experience of wild abandon and reckless action drenched in blood and thunder, and we work hard to cultivate it in our games. Along the way, we made up some stuff to help us evoke that certain Metal feeling and this zine is our chance to share all of that with you.
In this issue of the Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad you will find:
* 20 pages of Metal-drenched DCC mayhem
* Background info on the Metal Gods and Ur-Hadad
* The paradoxical problem of Assassins in Ur-Hadad
* The staggeringly-amazing Street Kids of Ur-Hadad urban funnel adventure tool kit! Remember the Warriors? Edgar Johnson gives you all the tools you need to make your own urchin-grinding funnel adventure version of it.
* A ton of art by the excellent Mr. Wayne Snyder, as well as a short, "one page dungeon"-style insert by him, ready to be slipped into your next DCC session.
