Coming Soon to a Disco Dungeon of Doom Near You: Hugh The Barbarian

Demon Dogs! In case you missed it, Goodman Games was giving out promotional posters featuring “Hugh the Barbarian”, to publicize their upcoming Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG.

The art will, apparently, be featured on the back of the DCC book, and is quite nifty. I got my poster today, and just wanted to share. You can find a larger version of the artwork over in the Goodman Games forums, here:

They’re definitely pushing the ’70’s thing as far as (further than?) it’ll go. Complete with mustache, bell bottoms, and of course the striped pants. But it’s all in good fun, and a lot of neat ideas in DCC, so do check it out.

  1. That's hilarious! And thanks for the link. I'm downloading as I type. 🙂

    Biopunk – yep, some of the hair in mid-80's D&D products is funny as hell. Boris Vallejo was guilty of major 80's hair in his paintings too!

  2. The hair, 'stache, and stripes on his pants actually look pretty historically Celtic. Hugh practically looks like a cross between Slaine and Asterix. The fact that the pants are bellbottoms though…
