So often, the people behind the product go unnoticed. Recently, I’ve discovered this amazing game known as Dungeon Crawl Classics. Saying I love the game isn’t enough. There are a lot of people who made it happen. These are the people I’d like to thank. If it weren’t for their skill, insight, and devotion, we never would have had this wonderful game. Thank you all. Your work is greatly appreciated!

Dungeon Crawl Classics

Obviously, Joseph Goodman is the driving force behind Goodman Games. I’d like to thank him for his vision and the persistence it must have taken to bring that vision to life. I’m sure he must wear many hats and have his hand in every aspect of the game’s development.

The other writers did an amazing job as well. There is a big difference between laying out the rules and presenting them in a fun and engaging manner. I truly enjoyed reading the DCC RPG Rulebook. It recaptured the essence of the fantasy genre and invoked intense nostalgia for the early days of the hobby. You guys totally nailed it!

I’ve done some layout and design work before. It’s hard work. There are so many considerations and the requirements are constantly changing, making you continually modify your designs. I have to say that the presentation of the book is flawless. You couldn’t have done a better job.

Editing is probably the most overlooked job of all. Most people don’t realize how important it is. But it is critical! The best book in the world will fall flat if the editing isn’t there. In this case, everything is perfect. I have a fairly critical eye, yet I could not find a single flaw. Well done!

Artwork

Artwork often gets a great deal of attention. I have to say that in this case, the artwork blew me away. As I said in a previous post, “The amazing artwork in this book was the greatest unexpected treat of all, and makes the physical book worth the cost all by itself”. You folks did an amazing job of capturing the feel of fantasy role-playing from the 70s. It is a joy to just look through the artwork.

But as often as the artwork is praised, the artists themselves seem to go unnoticed. A couple names jump out. But I have to admit, many of the names here are unknown to me. Since I love your work so much, I think I need to find out who everyone is. Therefore, I’ve set out on a search to research all of these artists!

Please forgive me if I have missed something, misspelled a name, or worse linked someone who isn’t the actual artist. It is surprising how, even with an uncommon name, there always seems to be someone else with the same name and occupation. Please notify me if you see any errors or wish to add/remove anything. Thank you.
