The funnel I helped Steven with was a simple affair based around the Heavy Metal film from 1981, the sequence that we settled on is one that we've used before. We settled on O’Bannon’s “B-17” from the film a pretty horrific little nod to EC and precode horror comics from the Forties & Fifties. The PC's are all survivors in a lost world where the dead are ghouls and the characters must survive against the background. The idea of the funnel sequence wasn't too bad but the dice conventions make the game a bit of a pain in the ass but all in all it went down fine.
There are several great resources on the web for DCC including the the 0-level character generator at Purple Sorcerer Games. The resources at People Them With Monsters are absolutely essential to working with the DCC game in my humble opinion.
Now here's the thing this game isn't going to be out for months yet and there are so many folks who are putting together DCC games to get the jump on it. There are several options on the table at the moment one of which happens to be the Crawling Under A Broken Moon DCC fanzine whose setting is going to be cross compatible with Gamma Crawl Classics. The amount of material in CUBM makes this a great low cost resource for both DCC And MCC's.
So what's the premise of this DCC funnel, well its quite simple the PC's are castaways on an island. They can either be the crew of a wrecked B-17 plane or castaways straight from the DCC rule book. The ghouls are waiting among the undead crews who have already crashed on the island and its various adventure locations.
I'll let you know how it works out for my fellow DM and his players in the next couple of weeks but for now keep those dice rolling.
