Purple Planet DCC Horde



Eight publishers are simultaneously crowdfunding TTRPG supplements in the same fantastic setting!

Or will you fall beneath the blast of an ink black death ray, just another corpse left to litter the wastes of the Purple Planet?

On Its Way

Highlights

In Stefan Surratt's Dragon Peak Publishing Substack he asked me about River of Lies and I said this about the adventure:
"The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs plays a big part in shaping the lore of my version of the Purple Planet’s Ghost River of Varnasu. On Barsoom, the River of Iss is a journey to the paradisiacal afterlife. On the Purple Planet, it crashes upon the landscape and beckons the PCs to enter the waters. The adventure starts as the Ghost River appears. It whisks them away (as forces of nature do) to an unknown valley in the Ancestor Peaks. The adventurers are lost and must find their way back to their previous goal."

Additionally, I've revealed other influences for the adventure:
"River of Lies utilizes the Purple Planet's Ghost River of Varnasu and the Ancestor Peaks to present a dangerous meeting with house of Thero’Agarst, leaders of a lost religious cult of the Ascended Masters. Literary inspirations include The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Death's Master by Tannith Lee, and The Citadel of the Autarch by Gene Wolfe."

This week and until the end of the crowdfunding campaign, this final book club session is an AMA about the adventure, its influences, and really anything else you might have on your mind. So Ask Me Anything!

I had asked before, and on the DCC Rocks group, a few people expressed interest in PayPal as an option. I was an expat until recently, and due to being away a decade, my credit is s**t until I can build more. I have limited Credit Card availability, and PayPal would be much easier. According to the Backerkit page, so long as a company has a PayPal account, they can support PayPal on Backerkit. I know Goodman Games has a PayPal account, as I have used it several times to order from the shop. Please check into this, as I can up my pledge if so. 💥

PROJECT UPDATE

Project Update: Project Update: Detail the Champion of Our Kith Horde!

Hail, heroes of the Horde! 

To those of you who have fought on behalf of the Horde since its inception, we thank you! And to those who only recently rallied around our banner, welcome! Together you have achieved mighty victories, and with the end of our shared campaign still over a week away, there is much we can still accomplish. 

The greatest joy as an author is to see our creations taken up by other authors and judges, who transform the work and make it their own. Whether you and your fellow gamers choose to explore forgotten ruins in search of ancient relics, scale the Ancestor Peaks in a quest to win the Throne of Stars, or lead a war band of kith into battle — our goal is to give you the tools to make the Purple Planet your own.

Veterans of the Horde are familiar with the font of rumors, lies, and lore that is the Goodman Games Twitch channel. We have two upcoming shows dedicated to the Purple Planet: 

On February 27th, at 9 pm EST, we have the Purple Planet Q&A show. Bring your burning queries, brilliant stretch goal proposals, and planetary conundrums. Joseph, Mike, and I will be on hand to answer your questions, and we hope to see you there.

Then, on March 5th, we have the Countdown Show. Please join us in celebrating the close of the Adventures On the Purple Planet campaign, and weigh in on the final design announcements. 

We still have over a week until the end of our campaign, and we need your help to design our horde’s Ascended Master. In our previous poll, you chose the mummified kith as the leader of our war band. Now, we need your input on what kind of ritual we should use to bring our mummified warlord back to life. Your answers will determine our next steps and the challenges we will face along the way.

Loremasters, give us your answers! 

We shall revive our warlord with … 

Poll Options: 

1. The heads of the three Ascended Masters ensconced in their frozen fastness set high in the Ancestor Peaks.

2. The lifeblood of the dread Mother Orm, Vatya-Ibdid.

3. Seven drops of Aqua Mortis, stolen from the crucible sunk within the Lake of Death.

4. A forgotten spell, carved on ancient tablets concealed in a library lost beneath the sifting sands. 

5. Place our warlord upon the Throne of Stars high atop the Ancestor Peaks and raise our voices in defiance of the heavens.

Miniatures are really useful in large combats, if that is the appropriate way to conduct a specific battle. Standees would be very useful and I suggest printable ones rather than pre-printed so that you could make a massive kith warband! Does anyone know a clever way to make easily identifiable, stable standees?

I just finished patching up a dice bag. https://www.reddit.com/r/dccrpg/s/n8yxzYvO6F I am curious how popular patches are with other people. I love them! Stickers too. I would burn all my luck, as little as that is, for a purple planet patch.

Hi, You guys have done such a great job this week exposing us to more info about all of the horde projects, but I still haven't heard very much about the visual atlas add-on. Is there going to be any more info about that? Was there something that I missed?

Project Update: Update #3: Beware the Bisolon!

Greetings, Purple Planeteers!

It's that time again--here's your weekly update from the barren wastes and Ancestral Peaks! Thanks to YOU, we are only $750 away from achieving an incredible double-page spread illustration for O' Happy Dagger! We are grateful!

Meet the Horde!

Did you miss last night's special show featuring nearly the entire HORDE of third-party publishers on the Goodman Games Official Twitch channel? (I bet you didn't miss the emails!) Or Honor Among Thieves and "So You Think You're A Kith?" on Sunday?  Don't worry; you can still catch the re-runs on the Goodman Games Official Twitch channel!

New Dangers!

The Purple Planet teems with dangers, making travel a very dangerous proposition. You may even have to worry about...STAMPEDES! Check out this great drawing from Colin Richards:

Hooves that generate electricity? No thank you!


Join the Conversation!

We're having a ball in the Community section talking science fiction and RPGs. Stop by and say hello! Jump in with our latest poll. The Purple Planet is actually a post-apocalyptic setting, where the remnants of ancient civilizations bleach beneath the fatal rays of a weirdling sun. Where else should our DCC heroes-to-be roam?

End Transmission

We are approaching the end of our campaign, but we still have time for one more update...and perhaps more surprises? Please share our project with your community, and let's see what we can bring to life on the Purple Planet!

Wishing you the Best of Luck Checks,

Martin at Gaming Honors
