Basic Black (Friday), No Pearls

Happy Black Friday!

Doesn’t sound so cheery, does it? Well, whatever the origins of the phrase [1], here in the USA, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, when it is the patriotic duty of all Americans to rush to a retail establishment and buy something, anything. Sometimes as early as midnight, for those of you without a life.

(Yeah, that’s right. A gamer just said you need to get a life. Stings, don’t it?)

Here at Gnome Stew, we don’t care about $197 laptops [2] or $78 Blu-Ray players [3]. We care about gaming. Your gaming. And maybe just a bit about your sister. (Did I just say that out loud?)

Ahem. Where was I? Gaming, that’s right…

Topping our very incomplete list of RPG goodies on sale is Adamant Entertainment [4]. Just about every PDF they publish is on sale for one measly dollar over at RPGNow [5]. And I shouldn’t mention that a dollar isn’t what it used to be [6], so that’s doubly cheap. (Shop now; the sale ends Monday.)

Did I mention RPGNow? Here’s the current list of FREE STUFF!! [7] You don’t even have to buy anything because it’s FREE! While you’re there, shop around a bit; there’s plenty on sale this weekend as well.

Sister site DriveThruRPG has quite a few things on sale. I could tell you all about it, or I could just provide you with this link [8] to their latest newsletter. (Yes, it looks remarkably similar to RPGNow’s newsletter [9]. It’s like they’re one book shelf [10].)

I’d be very remiss if I didn’t mention Tabletop Adventures’ Grand Sale of Distraction [11]. 20% off every electronic product through the end of the month.

Paizo has too many products on sale [12] for my tryptophan-addled brain [13] to filter through. Just go there and check ‘em out.  (Ooh, half-off Goodman Games [14] print books! And a Gamer Stimulus Package [15]! I sure hope it’s cheaper than the non-gamer version!)

Not a whole lot of RPG material here, but Fantasy Flight Games [16] is having a nifty sale on cards, minis, and board games.

Chick-lit [17]” seems to have infiltrated Overstock.com [18]’s RPG section, but there are some pretty good deals for those with high Perception, Spot, or Notice rolls. Pick your poison.

Finally, my favorite: the Arkeg [19]. What more could a man want? (Okay, a mistletoe belt buckle, but that’s not going to be easy to explain to my daughter now, is it?)

Did I miss a sale? Find a great deal somewhere? Sound off in the comments and let us know!

FWIW – DriveThruRPG.com and RPGNow.com merged a while back.


I used both before and after the merger. Both are fine sites IMO.

Thanks for the leads, Kurt!

To add to the list:

Even though Adamant just released Rebels of Mars, it’s still on sale for a buck.

And no comments about the Arkeg? Sheesh, tough crowd…

Thanks for the pointer– I picked up a lot of PDFs for $1.
