Big OSR sale! Plus some 5e D&D, etc. (GM's day 2021)

In my last post, I talked about some D&D classics on sale. Take a look! There is awesome stuff in there... 

Now I've found some OSR picks that might interest you. 

I'm focusing on big discounts here; I'm going to avoid the "10% off" books at this time. Some books might have a 10% discount on top of another discount, like my Dark Fantasy Basic; I cannot tell which ones. 

Anyway, I think I've found some good stuff here...

First, there is Goodman Games. They publish the awesome Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG (DCC RPG), one of my favorite OSR games. Even better, than have some near system-less "alphabets" such as The Dungeon Alphabet and The Monster Alphabet. I haven't read How to Write Adventure Modules That Don't Suck but I've heard very positive things about it...  might get it this time.

If you want to write your own adventures, the Tome of Adventure Design is also a good resource. Frog God Games has tons of amazing stuff, both 5e and OSR.

Kobold Press is another good ones, with great monster manuals such as the Creature Codex and Tome of Beasts (both for 5th Edition). I have both and they are amazing... Better than the "official" stuff form WotC.

Low Fantasy Gaming Deluxe Edition is also on sale. I wrote a review of the old version here; I really like his game.

If you like B/X and domain management, you should take a look at the Adventurer Conqueror King System; the system is really tight.

I haven't got The Nameless Grimoire yet, but I like the idea and The Nightmares Underneath is neat. Likewise, I haven't' read The Codex of the Black Sun, but I like the stuff I've read from Kevin Crawford. 

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells is a great OSR, science fantasy book. Diogo has a lot of cool books on sale.

Finally, I'll mention a couple of BIG ones...

Greg Gillespie has a few megadungeons on sale... The Forbidden Caverns of Archaia and Barrowmaze, for example. I heard good things about those, so maybe I'll pick one or two. There are 5e versions too!

And there is The Blight for S&W (there is a 5e version too). I know next to nothing about this one... but a 925-page (!) dark fantasy setting, with gothic influences and probably some Bloodborne feels does pique my interest. I am not sure I have the courage to face a 925 pages RPG book... but I'm considering it.
