Hmm... What's this?




Hey, what's this crammed in between all those Big Name RPGs at my local Borders Bookstore?



Why, its the deliciously old-school book The Dungeon Alphabet!

How cool is that?

Kudos to Michael for taking the OSR to the "mainstream" stores, and kudos to Goodman Games for putting it in such a cool package. I'm especially happy to see this particular book on shelves - you probably don't know it, but I'm to blame for some of the art in that book, in a roundabout sorta way. Its a neat story I'll save for a future blog post.

  1. Borders, eh? Now that's what I call mainstream market penetration. Big applause for Michael - let's hope it bears fruit.

  2. That is exactly what I saw last week in Seattle. One lone copy of DA in among a shelf of high-priced core books. So I bought it.

  3. @Lord Kilgore - so now there are none there? ;-)

  4. If I had my way, no Borders would have them...because they'd be sold out of course.

    Thanks for taking a picture of my book in the wild, Al. Somedays it feels like the DA is more elusive than Bigfoot.

  5. But much more worthwhile bagging.
