I'm planning to pick up a copy of the DCC RPG Reference Booklet from lulu.com and was wondering if any of you have other RPG books that are available there that you'd recommend getting as well.

I already own, among others: d30 Sandbox Companion, d30 DM Companion, Creature Compendium, all four Vigilante City books, Fantastic Heroes & Witchery, Rad-hack.

White Hack 3e - OSR with more freeform character creation.

Metamorphica Revised Edition - Huge book for mutation tables. One of my favourites.

Class warfare - supplement for dungeon world that increases the amount of character options.

I've always loved DCC, but it doesn't feel that playable to me because of all the charts you have to roll on during play. I try to never reference books during play because it hurts pacing a lot. Does the reference book really help that much?

In my oppinion all the classes in DCC are some of the best ones ever designed. They have so much flavour.

I'll second Metamorphica Revised Edition. It's a really cool book to have on your shelf.

Lulu also sell Simon Washbourne's Triumphant supers game. There's a new, revised edition out but the original was a cool game and an evolution of the original edition of Supers!

Zozer Games has a bunch of great books on there too. Their Hostile series for Cepheus Engine is great for Alien-style industrial sci-fi. Likewise they do Zaibatsu (classic cyberpunk action) and Modern War (military action and Twilight:2000 type stuff) for Cepheus too.

So, with the big 30% off Black Friday coupon no doubt making a comeback soon, are there any new recommendations for books from Lulu?

To answer the DCC question get the Crawler app from Purple Sorcerer on your phone, it has everything you need to reference and is much handier than paging through the books.

Dunno if it's still on Lulu, but Hostile is a Traveller/Cepheus game written to pay homage to grungy blue-collar 80s scifi films like Aliens and Outland. Written by Zozer Games, pretty much a guarantee of quality.

It's not as shiny or as focused as the Alien RPG from Free League, but it has a ton of content, it's a high-quality softback book, and it's half the price.

Yep, lots of TDM and Zozer stuff on there. And on my shelf already.

It's getting harder to find books I don't already have. I get the feeling only people already on Lulu are still putting new RPG books up there since DTRPG started offering PoD. Which is a pity because I think they still beat DTRPG on packaging and consistent quality.

How is DCC’s Transylvanian adventures? 20$ish for 300 pages? Seems too good to be true…

I think everything from Ganesha Games is on lulu as well, including their whole Four Against Darkness line. I've been eyeballing the stand-alone spin-off Alone Against Fear solo game and the two available scenario books. Looks kind of fun, in a 1970s Italian B-movie horror kind of way.

After getting in my DCC Weird Frontier's and it's lethal 800 plus pages. I feel it's a perfect candidate for using the PDF to break up the book and have three books printed. I might have to pester my wife to help me do that. lol

I believe they're planning on eventually going for a two-book format with the print-on-demand version.

I might pick up the famous Stonehell dungeon (it's rather inexpensive):

And MAYBE the sequel too:
Stonehell is great, I have both books. Ran the first twice, once with BLUEHOLME and once with BLUEHACK, but didn't get very far before Hong Kong fell apart. Would love to give it another go, but then there's Anomalous Subsurface Environment on the shelf ...

Keep us informed on the coupons, please. I tend to miss out on those things all the time.

At what page count do y'all consider it worthwhile getting anything in hardcover?

Star Wars REUP would be high on my list, as it is $100 or so for 500+ pages
revised expanded and updated version of the WEG classic d6 star wars system

Not an RPG book but a fun resource for Lost World/Hollow Earth settings:


I'm not sure what a Gilak is...

If I remember correctly, a Gilak is a native human inhabitant of Pellucidar.
