Inspired by the fancy dungeon geomorph dice (pictured in the banner) I bought last spring, I decided to make a tool for generating (fantasy) dungeons. You can find the tool in the PDF below, and while it supports the use of the dungeon geomorph dice you can actually get by with just a set of 3D12 from your nearest dice bag.

It was just a jumble of tubes and screws and metal plates. But the group decided to fuel it with the blood of their dead and take it with them. And thus, I had to write the following rules for the rickety race of tinmen. They are a weird bunch but should provide some tank-y power in combat and some useful utility skills for the group.
The race of tinmen: DCC_Tinmen_VIR
Character sheet for tinmen: DCC_TinmanSheet_AMP
“‘E were ‘aughty as all hell! Paid in queer coin too! ‘An talked to ‘is ‘orse!”
Due to popular demand, here are the rules for an elven knight in DCC! Continue reading “The Elven Knight”
“Aye, well of course we’ve a pint for you… whatever you are. Sir.
Nevermind the tail, we don’ judge o’er ‘ere. Gran’ma Crooks ‘as a ‘alf-dozen tentacles. Livin’ in ‘er ‘ouse! ‘Cats!’ she says, but them’s tentacles if I’ve ever seen ’em…
But with that bit of coin, well… ‘Ere’s the ‘ouse specialty!” Continue reading “Five Magical Brews”
Time flies when you’re crawling in a festering dungeon, and its once again time for a review of past articles. I’ll be going through my own posts from this spring and summer, updating and editing articles as I go along.
Full list of updates beyond the jump.
“The Lance trundles along triumphantly. What had once been a single knightly form, drunkenly slouched upon a tired destrier has grown into a prolific force sporting many different banners!
Let the windmills of the world be wary, for here come the Knights in the North!”
It is the first anniversary of the site! We’ve grown from a single voice into a veritable group of content producers. In the last year 5 writers and 3 artists have joined the Lance, and I’m overjoyed at what we’ve managed together!
In the last year we’ve had some 15k views all in all, with constantly increasing numbers. Last month an average of 50 visits per day were made to the site. Our core readership seems to come from the US, with Finland, Canada and Spain following fairly far behind.
This is the 92nd post made on the blog, meaning that we average around 50 articles in six months. Out of those 92 articles only 12 are not directly usable in play (11 articles marked with the “Management” tag, and the one campaign chronicle being the outliers), meaning that we’ve successfully kept the 80/20 guideline of playable vs. other stuff I set when I started the project.
As a celebratory show of force I added links to (most?) of our content to the DCC RPG Resource Link spreadsheet (available over here) Hopefully even more readers find us now!
Also, we’ve acquired a fancy new banner from good sir Danny Prescott! Check it out at the front of the shop at your leisure.
The coming year means that we’ll keep doing our thing, and hopefully add more systems to our DCC/OSR heavy catalogue. Suggestions for content are always welcome, as are articles and art (check the contributor guidelines here if you’re interested).
Onwards to bigger and better things!
