A podcast about the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game and Old School gaming.

    Episode 132: Capes, Cowls and Crawling!

    Episode 132: Capes, Cowls and Crawling!

    It’s a superhuman and heroic spectacular tonight on Spellburn! They said it couldn’t be done, but in true DCC tradition, they did it anyway! I’m talking of course about superheroes, masked men, vigilante crusaders, dark night detectives and of course, mutants cursed to protect a world that despises them. Earth’s Mightiest Judges are joined by some new third party designers working on superhero games for DCC … all this and more on this month’s Spellburn!

    Episode 131: The Gonzo Show

    Neither Chuck Barris nor the Unknown Comic will be in attendance this evening. Gonzo – what is it? How do you know your game is gonzo? It is one of those things that you’ll only know when you see it? Is DCC RPG the gonzo game some purport it to be? 

    Making his Spellburn debut, from Super Savage Systems, the Neon Lord himself, Brian Shutter creator of The Neon Lords of the Toxic Wasteland! Also making his first appearance on Spellburn is Martin Ouelet, headman at Headcheese Productions and author of Crime-Fighting Lucadores RPG!

    Episode 129: The Music of the Spheres is…. ROCK!


    In the DCC world, we love our music! Even dating back to the hallowed “G+ era”, we had Doug’s DCC Music group that turned people on to tons of great tunes. For a long time we’ve wanted to do a Spellburn episode with some DCC related bands and today that dream is coming true!  We’re going to talk to some inspirational musicians about DCC, music and RPGs, sources of inspiration and much more!

Amazing resource and entry to the DCC community

The hosts (old and new) are a wonderful, welcoming resource for anyone interested in learning about DCC - or if you are already playing the game gaining a better understanding of its nuances.

Critical Success!

I came to DCC in 2018 around the same time I came back to TTRPGs and I’ve found my spiritual gaming home. The podcast is a perfect supplement to actual play and enhances how I run and play games. Guest creators and judges’ insights are always appreciated also!

DM Cojo ,

Relevant then and now...

I love the new content, and I also go back and listen from episode 1 every year or two! I still find things of value that I missed in old episodes!
