Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad Issue #1 Winter 2014

Suggested Price $1.00

Out of the howling wilderness,  Amidst sunken cities,   And long-buried secrets,  Man has forged a sword and cast off his chains. Swords and Sorcery and Metal Gods.  Danger, treasure, blood and glory, all mixed up in a blender  And served up in Golden Ur-Hadad, First City of Ore.  Enter, if you dare, the bitchin' mural  On the side of your cousin's Ford custom van.  Enter the world of the Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad. 

In many ways, the authors of this zine believe the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG to be the most Metal of the Old School-style RPGs on the market today. No other RPG consistently provides for us the same feeling of adventuring the through the worlds depicted on classic heavy metal album covers the way that DCC does. We love that feeling, that experience of wild abandon and reckless action drenched in blood and thunder, and we work hard to cultivate it in our games. Along the way, we made up some stuff to help us evoke that certain Metal feeling and this zine is our chance to share all of that with you.

In this issue of the Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad you will find:

  • 20 pages of Metal-drenched DCC mayhem
  • Background info on the Metal Gods and Ur-Hadad
  • The paradoxical problem of Assassins in Ur-Hadad
  • The staggeringly-amazing Street Kids of Ur-Hadad urban funnel adventure tool kit! Remember the Warriors? Edgar Johnson gives you all the tools you need to make your own urchin-grinding funnel adventure version of it.
  • A ton of art by the excellent Mr. Wayne Snyder, as well as a short, "one page dungeon"-style insert by him, ready to be slipped into your next DCC session.

This issue has been produced in support of StandUp For Kids, a non-profit, non-partisan charitable organization dedicated to fighting teenage homelessness with a proven track record and 94% of donations being spent on youth in the organization's programs. 50% of all proceeds from the sale of the pdf will also be donated to StandUp For Kids, so we're offering you the opportunity to help as much as you see fit.

Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad was a 'zine before its time. Being one of the early offerings in the DCC 'zine pantheon, it didn't enjoy the sort of readership that it would quickly recieve today. Filled with a number of useful things, by far the greatest piece [...]

Excellent first issue of this zine. The funnel is excellent not only has a funnel, but provides a slew of random tables that will spark your imagination for any city adventure you are running. The writing and art support the 80s metal feel of this zi [...]

"Know, pitiable children of today, that there was a time before Metal, when Man worked and fought and died and even made music with wood and bone, shell and stone." This is how the first chapter, Metal Gods, start. It speaks of history of Man [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
