The Dungeon Alphabet
Expanded Third Printing
The Dungeon Alphabet compiles inspirational tables on classic dungeon
design elements to assist
the game master in creating subterranean challenges. This third printing
adds eight new topics to the existing twenty-six for thirty-four tables
of inspirational materials.
A is for Altar, B is for Books, and C is for Caves: the Dungeon Alphabet
has advice, hints, and randomized tables that bring new life to your adventures.
The entries are accompanied by outstanding art from classic fantasy
illustrators and are compatible with all fantasy role playing games. This
third printing adds Russ Nicholson to the artist lineup, and also features
new illustrations by Jeff Easley, Jim Holloway, Peter Mullen, Michael Wilson,
and Brad McDevitt, including brand new endsheets.
Congratulations to author Michael Curtis: The Dungeon Alphabet was
awarded the prestigious 2011 Three Castles Award at North Texas RPG Convention!
Games: “I cannot recommend this book highly enough for the dungeon
master looking to get the creative juices flowing, and keep their players
Knight Reviews: “So if you’re looking for a great resource to have
around for inspiration on a great many topics, The Dungeon Alphabet should
definitely find its way into your collection.”
Academy: “Even if you don't end up using the tables as presented, just
flipping through the pages of this book will have your head swimming with
ideas. This is due, in part, to the absurd amount of old-school fantasy
art. As with the DCC RPG rulebook, this book is a lot of fun to just aimlessly
flip through due to the variety of pieces presented.”
