PDF's of the Judges Guild books

Hi everyone,

Since the Kickstarter began, we have had a number of requests for PDF editions. Our license with Judges Guild only covers print publication...but after a little behind-the-scenes work we have been able to work something out. So this update is basically, "Hey, you're getting some free PDF's now!"

Here's the scoop:

  • If you are pledging for the oversized hardcover, you will receive a PDF of these Judges Guild products: Tegel Manor, Thieves of Fortress Badabaskor, and Citadel of Fire. Plus you'll also get a PDF of the Ready Ref Sheets thrown in for good measure!
  • If you're pledging for one of the 8.5"x11" tabletop editions, you'll get a PDF for whatever titles you pledged for. So you'll receive some combination of Tegel Manor, Thieves of Fortress Badabaskor, or Citadel of Fire, depending on what you pledged for. Note - we don't have a scan of Dark Tower to provide at this time, unfortunately.

But there's a little fine print! Which is as follows. The PDF's we're sending are from the current Judges Guild catalogue. They are not the same scans as the ones being used to produce the Goodman Games hardcover. Part of our arrangement with Judges Guild is that we share our high-res scans with them, so at some point in the future they may update the PDF's with the scans we've produced. Additionally, the oversized hardcover includes some additional material beyond the original scans, and that additional material can't be provided in PDF.

You're still getting a lot of extra content, though. And combined with the Fat Dragon material from yesterday, backers of the oversized hardcover are getting almost $50 in free PDF's!

Hope you enjoy this little freebie - and feel free to spread the word!

      This is really cool. I can't wait to pour over these wonderful adventures again.

      Can I ask for clarification on the line "Note - we don't have a scan of Dark Tower to provide at this time, unfortunately." This makes it sound as if you might have a scan of the Dark Tower at some point in the future. If you do have a scan of the Dark Tower in the future would you make it available to the folks who purchase a copy of the Dark Tower booklet during this campaign?

      Any chance those of us who already bought the four modules through out these months could get the PDFs too?
