Buying gaming books from lulu can be quite pricey when you’re from Continental Europe like me. But there are some nice role playing games in print which I’d really like to own. So, I was really happy to see that lulu has a sale at the moment: with #decktheshelf (valid till Dec 9th) and FREESHIP (valid till Dec 12th) you can get some swag for a reasonable discount.
(By the way, for coupons you can try [MON]BOOKS[YR]: [MON] = first three letters of the month, [YR] = last two digits of the year, or [MONTH]BOOKS[YR] like JULYBOOKS13).
So, what to buy?
Here’s a list of recommendations for books I enjoy. I link to the softcover POD but sometimes there is another version or a pdf available.
OSR gaming books
Blood & Treasure: another mix of several editions with an interesting skill system, buying the hardcover will entitle you to a free PDF
Epées & Sorcelerie (English translation): a French OD&D retroclone with some new stuff, free pdf
Story Games and other Stuff
Grey Ranks: a story game about child soldiers, Co-Winner of the 2008 Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming, buying the book will get you a free pdf
Stalker RPG: an interesting diceless game in the universe of the Russian apocalyptic novel Roadside Picnic
Stuff by Simon Washbourne: Simon makes good games so check them out
The Creature Crafter: a manual for creating unique monsters for every system, lots of tables
The Supercrew: This is a rules-lite comic-style superheroes game, only in PDF. If you like supers and lightweight this is a must-buy.
