Dungeon Crawl Classics Dying Earth


Explore the singular world of Jack Vance’s Dying Earth, set in the distant last days of the world, where magic and science blend together and querulous sorcerers feud endlessly! With Dungeon Crawl Classics Dying Earth you will discover the tools to play in Cugel’s and Rhialto’s world, seek the mighty Pandelume, or fall to an indifferent grue while searching for scintillant baubles among the ensorcelled remains of the ancient earth.

This boxed set contains comprehensive rules options and new material for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG explicitly designed to capture the setting of the Dying Earth. Within you will find new classes, creatures, patrons, spells, and more inspired by the Dying Earth stories for use in your DCC RPG game including four new classes for DCC RPG: magician, vat-thing, wayfarer, and witch, as well as new rules for “grudge tokens” to track the resentments that characters accumulate with every minor imprecation they encounter. This set also includes a beautiful map of the world of Dying Earth illustrated by Doug Kovacs. A copy of the Dungeon Crawl Classics rulebook is required to use this boxed set.

Inside this box you will find:

  • Player’s Libram (64 pages).
  • Primer of Practical Magic (104 pages).
  • Intimate Anatomy of Several Creatures and Personages of the Twenty-First Aeon (96 pages).
  • A map of the environs of the Dying Earth.

Based on The Dying Earth Book Series by Jack Vance

Is there anyway to get "Casebook of Arcane Apocrypha" since it's mentioned like 100 times in the Dying Earth collection?

Does this have the "Dying Earth Core Rules", or is that something separate?
If it has the core rules, are they standalone, or do you need DCC Core Rules as well?

"A copy of the Dungeon Crawl Classics rulebook is required to use this boxed set."

It's like the DCC Lankhmar set; you need the basic DCC RPG rulebook, and then this makes rule changes and additions for the Dying Earth setting.

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.
