Reminder - Tavern Chat Tonight - 9 PM Eastern - Post Pub Party - I May be a Bit Lit :)



Yep, tonight from 5 PM to 8 PM, my local pub is having its Christmas Party. I may be a bit intox for tonight's chat. It's a damn good thing my local pub is within walking distance :)

What is Tavern Chat? It's been compared to a weekly podcast where all can participate. It's literally a live voice chat with members of the OSR community where we get to hang out and BS.

When is it? 9 PM Eastern until whenever. Usually, it lasts for at least two hours, although I have seen it run beyond six hours (Bill, I'm pointing fingers at you!)

Where is it? It's on the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server.
Here's your link: https://discord.gg/fReGmuD

We hang out in the "Speakeasy" voice chat channel.

Designers & Makers Interview with Michael "BadMike" Badolato on The Tavern Chat Podcast



Today we kick off the Designers & Makers series of interviews (with about 40 interviews currently on the grid over the next three months). Michael "BadMike" Badolato has the notoriety of being our first guest in the series. BadMike is one of the main guys behind the NTRPG Con, works for Frog God Games and does his own business selling old school games on eBay. Join us as BadMike answers "Ths Five Questions" after which we free range a bit ;)

OSR Christmas - Day Four - Another Box of andom Gaming Shit from the Tenkar's Game Collection - and Much More!



Here we go with Day Four of OSR Christmas. Print books can only be delivered in the US with this gift pool, digital can all be delivered worldwide. Let's see what's in the mix today:

1) 1 Box of Random Gaming Shit from the Tenkar Game Collection - US Only

2) 1 PDF Copy of The Midderlands from MonkeyBlood

3) 1 Bundle of OSR Patches from Thad Moore

4) 1 PDF Copy of Class Compendium (James Spahn / Barrel Rider Games)

5) 1 PDF Copy of the World War II: Operation WhiteBox adventure "The Argentine Connection" (Stouthearted Games)

6) 1 PDF Copy of the Sunken City Omnibus (DCC RPG / Purple Sorcerer)

How do you enter for a chance to be gifted? Simply comment on this very post. On Thursday, December 13th, 2018 sometime after 6pm Eastern (so comment before), we will randomly determine those to be gifted from the comments received. It really is that simple. Check back often, because we'll have at least 12 days of OSR Christmas during the month of December (and possibly into January too)

Note - If you live outside the US and get picked for a Print gift, I will substitute a $5 OneBookShelf Gift Certificate and the print prize will go back in the pool.

(edit - all comments at The Tavern have to be moderated - approved by an admin - meaning me. The Tavern has become the target of spambots and others and this is the best, if most tedious, way to handle such. I approve comments as fast as I can. I appreciate your patience - Erik)
