Review: The Dungeon Alphabet

"The Dungeon Alphabet" authored by Michael Curtis and produced by Goodman Games and distributed by Goodman Games, definitely deserves the Three Castles Award. After a short Intro, they get right into the alphabetical tables - eight new topics in this third edition, and over 34 tables.  There are tables for every letter of the alphabet, plus a few letters have two entries.  All these tables make for great random generation.  The whole of this small tome reminds me a little of the "old school" of D&D.  The classic b&w line art just enhances this.  Although most of the tables are fairly small, they should also serve as idea stimulators.  The charts are generic and will fit into any fantasy role-playing game.  A really crafty GM could conceivably use this book to teach the alphabet to a child.  Older 1st and 2nd editions of this book run quite expensive on Amazon - so get this while you can!  Highly recommended.
