The Dungeon Alphabet Now In Stores

From the Goodman Games website:
Dungeon Alphabet Now In Stores - Visit your local game store or our online store this week to pick up The Dungeon Alphabet! The Dungeon Alphabet compiles twenty-six classic dungeon design elements in one place to assist the game master in creating subterranean challenges. Suitable for any rules system, the entries are accompanied by outstanding art from classic fantasy illustrators, including Erol Otus, Jeff Easley, Jim Holloway, Jim Roslof, and others.
The book is currently listed as "temporarily out of stock" on Amazon but it is available through Paizo and Noble Knight Games. You can also ask your friendly neighborhood game store to order a copy for you (as well as a few extra for their shelves) if you'd prefer to support local businesses. I'll post more when I receive updates.

UPDATE: Noble Knight seems to have removed The Dungeon Alphabet from their website. I'm uncertain of why, but, judging from the sale's rank of the book yesterday, it's conceivable that they are out of stock at the moment.

UPDATE II: Amazon has the book in stock but with a 3-5 week shipping wait. Those not wishing to wait so long might want to seek other venues.

A warning to international customers - I tried ordering a copy from Goodman Games' online store today, but was unable to change the default US postage to my country (Australia). However, if I added a second item (which I didn't want to do and couldn't afford anyway), it then gave me the option to change postal rates.

The good news is Goodman Games is onto it and hope to have their software problem fixed by the end of the week. I'll just have to wait a little longer before I can get my copy. Looking forward to it.

Picked up my copy at the FLGS last night!

Thanks for the warning and follow-up information, David. I'm sure you saved somebody some stress.

Michael, I ordered mine through Amazon with the super-saver shipping rates (which means free shipping, but low priority). I'll let you know when they are shipping. I expect another week or so, although Amazon may be shipping the regular rate ones sooner.

Mike, I pre-ordered mine and got it last week. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy it. I play a home-brewed game that started out as D&D years ago and now would hardly be recognizable to most of your readers. Our game table is cluttered mostly with my notes, a battle mat and minis... no actual game books with two exceptions. The Alphabet will be joing Jim Raggi's Random Esoteric Creature Generator as standard fare for us. Thanks.

Glad to see my FLGS on the List! I'm excited for my compatriots to get a chance at picking it up.

Damn. I want this, but doesn't look like it's available in PDF. :(

Hi Michael,

I ordered my copy direct from Goodman Games and look forward to receiving it. Congratulations.

Cheers,

Got mine at Games Plus. Good stuff.

Seconding Dave - trying to get GG to send something to NZ, even more distant & isolated than OZ, was too hard, so I picked one up from Paizo.

The shipping was almost the same as the actual book, but they seem to be one of the few US/UK based companies that recognise my country...

Anyhow, I am REALLY looking forward to the book arriving in between 11 and 40 working days...

David Macauley said...

By Jove! Thanks Pukako, I had no idea about Paizo. I'm afraid GG still hasn't fixed the software issue, so Paizo has got my business instead, besides which Paizo saved me a few dollars on the already incredibly cheap price. :)

I just heard back from Goodman games, and it turns out they are going to be releasing a PDF version in the coming weeks. Woo hoo!

David Macauley said...

Bugger! Just got an email from Paizo saying the book is out of stock and has been put on back order. Shame it took them almost 2 weeks to tell me, I had my hopes up for a quick delivery. :(
