On the 12th Day of OSR Christmas, Presents Were Mapped, Signed and Delivered (in 2014)


Note: Due to the expense of mailing packages outside the US, some days of the OSR Christmas Giveaway will be limited to US mailing addresses only. This is one of those days. I apologize to the international tavern patrons and will make it up to you (to some extent) in the coming (and previous) days. PDF gifts will be international and will require an OBS (occasionally LULU) account to claim in most cases. Early 2014 the Tavern will be hosting an event open to all.

Lots of  goodies in Santa's bag today. So much, in fact, that this post will be left open until December 26, at which point the OSR Christmas Giveaway will start back up, as there are still more goodies to give away.

If you haven't dropped a comment yet, now's the time ;)

First off, +Tim Snider has kicked in a signed (by James Ward himself) reprint of Metamorphosis Alpha.

Then +Zach Glazar decided Santa's bag isn't properly filled unless it's overflowing:

- Classic Boxed set of Boot Hill, copyright 1979 (not signed but way old)

- Pool of Radiance "Gold Box" computer game, signed by Zeb Cook, James Ward and Steve Winter

- one oversized map from the Whisper & Venom Kickstarter, signed and numbered and not folded
(also includes one normal sized black and white map and a Jeff Dee print from the Kickstarter)

- one signed Jeff Dee print from the Whisper & Venom Kickstarer

- one unsigned Jeff Dee print from the Kickstarter and one B&W map

last, but certainly not least, we have:

- two copies of +Ken St. Andre 's Dwarves & Dragon game, signed and numbered

Don't expect these to arrive until early 2014, as I suspect by first opportunity to mail these (as oversized mailing tubes dont fit into mailboxes very well) won't be until the first Saturday after the New Year.

  19. There is no limits to my love of SSI's Pool of Radiance - it was literally my introduction to D&D, and I played all of them - from the series with the tactical combat screens up to and through the three Eye of The Beholder games.

    If you're a bit nostalgic for that, check out Legend of Grimrock, a re-imagining of that style of game.

  20. I never did own a copy of Boot Hill, in part because I never cottoned to Westerns until the 1990s. Now, I love them, and regret not getting a copy of the TSR game.

  21. That map is gorgeous! The first time I saw it I was immediately sorry I missed out on the kick starter.

  55. I don't see my previous comment, so I'm writing again. I only mean to enter one, though. The gist of the message was "thanks for doing this and merry Christmas."
