In August 2019 we presented the Goodman Gems Bundle, featuring The Dungeon Alphabet and other system-neutral FRPG sourcebooks from Goodman Games.
Joseph Goodman publishes a stellar series of entertaining and inspirational system-neutral supplements that have become seminal works of the Old School Revival. Foremost of these is the venerable Dungeon Alphabet, an alphabetic compendium now in its fourth edition, funded in a November 2017 Kickstarter campaign. The Dungeon Alphabet, its recent companion The Monster Alphabet, and other Goodman titles help OSR gamemasters rethink their games at a fundamental level. This Goodman Gems collection gathered much-loved supplements that present new character backgrounds, locations, setting elements, monsters, a yearlong calendar, and two marvelous trips through the alphabet.
There were four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including The Adventurer’s Almanac, a yearlong calendar to organize your campaign around seasonal events and a fantastical astrology system; a book of character design tips, PC Pearls, and the companion tips book for gamemasters, GM Gems; and a handy DM Campaign Tracker.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $61, including The Dungeon Alphabet and The Monster Alphabet; the setting sourcebooks Points of Light and Points of Light 2: The Sunrise Sea; The Random Esoteric Creature Generator for Classic Fantasy Games and Their Modern Simulacra; and the well-regarded treatise How to Write Adventure Modules That Don’t Suck.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, Reading is Fundamental.
