What IS Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG? Is it just a beautifully made OSR game with superior standards of art and more prodigious production of random tables? Or is it MORE than a retroclone, and if so, how does it differ from the games that hue closer to the traditional elements of the world’s most popular roleplaying game (older edition)? When we talk about OSR Games or retroclones, WHAT’S fundamentally new and different about DCC? How is it that DCC is perhaps one of the most different RPGs of the OSR, and yet is constantly said to rekindle the original spirit and nostalgia of so many oldschoolers?
