A (I'm sure incomplete) listing of the gift basket for the Swords & Wizardry is as follows:
Frog God Games will be giving away a PDF copy of Razor Coast and the choice of Monstrosities or Rappan Athuk in PDF to the blog post deemed "the best of the blogfest by Matt, Chris and myself. Two other blogs will receive PDF copies of either Monstrosities or Rappan Athuk. Plus we have gifted out some special offers to 4 participating bloggers to give away to the readers. It is like a scavenger hunt so be sure to check out all the postings!

+Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor will be giving away 5 copies of his zine, The Manor. You'll need to hit his blog on the 17th for details.
Erik (that's me) is throwing in 1 $10 gift certificate and 3 $5 gift certificates to random participating blogs. As we have surpassed 100 participating blogs, I'll also be throwing in 2 $5 gift certificates to random commenters on the S&W Appreciation Day blogpost that goes up on this blog on the 17th (if you want a chance to win those random $5 gift certificates, you need to add a comment to this very post). If the winning commenters are also members of the 2,000 Coppers G+ Community, he'll double the gift to a value of $10.
Add in the Purple Sorcerer stuff, and it's an amazing "gift basket". +Jon Marr , also known as the main man behind Purple Sorcerer Games, is putting 5 PDF copies of The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk and 5 PDF copies of Perils of the Sunken City into the gift pool.
