A “Great Price” on The Dungeon Alphabet

Goodman Games announced over the weekend that The Dungeon Alphabet will be part of its Great Prices program. That means the book will be available for the extremely sensible cost of $9.99. So if you were initially skeptical about forking over $20 for a hardcover book filled with great dungeon ideas, cool tables, and superb artwork by some of the industry’s top artists, its price will no longer be keeping you from adding the book to your personal gaming library. More information on when, where, and how you can get the book will be posted here when it becomes available.

You know those “Nice Price” CDs? The ones were you get a great album for a reasonable cost? Yeah, this is the gaming version of those.

At that price for a hardback, I might actually consider forking out for international postage. :)

$10, $20 ... just so long as I can get my hands on a copy.

Awesome stuff, hope I can get myself a copy (kinda hard since I'm at the other side of the world, but that wont stop me from attempting)

As a contributor (I did the artwork for 'C is for Caves' and 'X is for Xenophobia,' I have already had the pleasure of seeing a pdf of the product and am really excited about getting my paws on the real thing. I'm happy enough with my own artwork, but the other artists did an OUTSTANDING job.
But better than that is just the conception of the work -- an idea sourcebook where you can just flip to a page, choose a sentence or roll at random and have a skinny frame on which you and your players can hang the meat of the adventure you create for an evening.
When I was a kid, there were books like 'The Glass Harmonica' which I remember finding pretty inspirational --- The Dungeon Alphabet is a great and inspiring book.

Full disclosure: Whether this book sells 1 or 1000 copies, I've already been paid, so I have no real financial interest in the books success... but I just look forward to getting my hands on it because unlike so many other books that are being ground out by the 'industry,' this one helps put 'fun' back into gaming.
