Snazzy New Graphics, 101 Blogs and Mind Your Manors


Damn snazzy!

There's a couple of Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day graphics that are in the works / teaks stage. I happen to think this one is pretty cool.

So, mere minutes ago we hit 101 blogs that have signed up to participate in the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day on April 17th.

101

You, each and every one of you have humbled me. I never dreamed of hitting 100, and we've already passed it. The fine folks at Frog God Games and at D20swsrd.com have some "things" up their sleeves to make the day really nice. More on that when we lock it down to specifics.

+Tim Shorts of the Gothridge Manor blog is going to chip in 5 copies of his zine, The Manor, to 5 folks of his choice on S&W Appreciation Day. Those that are chosen get to choose the issue they would like in PDF.

It's getting to the point that I really need to update the list of the various items in the "gift basket" form all the various sources.

I think there's some more gifts to be announced tonight ;)

I did list some on our latest blog post. speaking of which we need to add Bill's blog tsathogga.blogspot.com, can I get 7 words for a description: "where you can be the frog, not the flies"

    1. It looks like you've got room for one more work, Erik.

      "Whimsical tall-tale fantasy frontier spectacle", perhaps? I found that 'spectacle' was important to remember when exploring Wampus Country -- it's not enough that people won't believe your story when you tell them what happened, it should be big enough they don't believe what they just saw you do.

  3. Oi! Could you add my blog to the appreciation day list, too:

    Acirema Mountain
