Overlooked Products

Question for the day, what PDFs or print products do you think are great and have been overlooked? It doesn't matter if they are new or old, any edition or game. One of my favorite gaming products is the old Citybooks from Flying Buffalo. I always thought those were great books and never heard too many others get excited about them or know what they were.

Weekend is almost here. And yes, I have started work on my one page dungeon. I should have it all written by tonight. Maybe.


  1. I don't think Kellri's CDD books are overlooked, but they can't be lauded enough.

  2. Another vote for FBInc.'s CityBooks (at least the first few).

    I also got a lot of perverse teenaged laughs out of the first few Grimtooth's Traps books, and the Maps Books and Steven S. Crompton's Lejenta

    * Tri-Tac's: Fringeworthy, Bureau 13

    * Stellar Games: Night Life, Justifiers

    * etc., etc., etc.

    I've almost always favoured the li'l companies odd titles over the monolithic and the derivative.

  3. My vote goes to the Free City of Haven by Gamelords. A City purpose built for the Thief-Centred D&D-like game Thieves' Guild, a great living and breathing rogueish city

    Then to the Crypt of Lyzandred the Mad, a WotC era 2E module that was basically 50 puzzle rooms + 50 combat situations with a twist or traps for the DM to arrange as desired in a 50 room dungeon. Nevermind running the module as intended it is a great Dungeon cook-book.

  4. Chgwiz> I checked them out from one of youe more recent blogs. Thanks for the heads up.

    TS> Citybooks are my favorites. I do have one of the map books and Grimtooth is a classic.

    Leopardi> Haven books look great and I never saw the Crypt of Lyzandred the Mad. Thanks for the heads up.
