Preorders for the print + PDF bundle of Gnome Stew’s first book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters closed July 22, and after a bit of behind-the-scenes work, the PDF version of Eureka is now available in the Engine Publishing online store.
The PDF is 314 pages, DRM-free, fully hyperlinked and bookmarked, and costs $16.95. Orders are processed by our e-commerce system, so if you buy the PDF you’ll receive it more or less immediately.
If you passed on the preorder due to price, or to the cost of shipping (we don’t charge for packaging for handling, but depending on where you live shipping can be expensive), this version of the book is priced at 52% off and, of course, there is no shipping!
If you passed on preordering Eureka because you wanted to see how the book was received by reviewers, here are three reviews to check out:
- Review: Eureka! 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters by Wolfgang Baur, Kobold Quarterly. “Much more than a simple book of plots, Eureka! stands as one of those essential tools that GMs and game designers will find themselves reaching for again and again.“
- Review of Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots by Zachary Houghton, RPG Blog II. “If you’re a Game Master who likes a little help with his brainstorming, Eureka will be a welcome addition to your bookshelf, virtual or otherwise.”
- Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters (in Croatian) by Stribor, Fantasy Hrvatska (English translation). “There is no doubt – Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters is a terrific reference book that could (and should!) be found on the shelf of every GM.“
You can also read a free 19-page excerpt of the book (including 12 plots), a podcast interview with me about Eureka, and several articles related to the book on Eureka’s product page.
