Diamond Book Distributors has announced that it has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Goodman Games to exclusively distribute their products to North American and international book markets. Distribution to the comic book specialty market is handled exclusively by Diamond Comic Distributors.
Goodman Games is a tabletop role-playing game publisher known for its classic adventure, Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game (DCC RPG), first released in 2012. Grounded in the sword and sorcery fiction that underpins classic RPGs, DCC RPG is the most popular tabletop RPG in the sub-genre now known as Old School Renaissance. “You’re no hero,” states the DCC RPG guide. “You’re an adventurer: a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.”
DCC RPG has sold more than 100,000 copies through 11 printings for traditional game and hobby channels, and the broader line of DCC adventures has sold more than 750,000 copies. To date, Goodman Games has released more than 40 DCC adventures. Each adventure is a pre-designed scenario that expands the options available to a DCC game. Goodman Games also publishes popular titles such as Mutant Crawl Classics, Xcrawl Classics, Fifth Edition Fantasy, and the hit Original Adventures Reincarnated series. Diamond Book Distributors is very excited offer Goodman Games’ full line of products to the book and comic trade.
