OSR Christmas 2014 - More is More Better - It's a Good Thing Santa's Bag is a Bag of Holding - Upgrading to New "Larger" Size
Santa's OSR Gift Bag is bursting at the seams. We'll need to upgrade his Bag of Holding.
I've got more to add to the list of donated goodies, but before I do, I want to give an overview on how this should work. No guarantees about the time table - I've already been told Dec 1st thru 3rd is "no excusals" at work along with the possibility to mobilized for potential protests. So, what follows is "the plan". The plan may or may not work out. We'll see.
Starting December 1st and following every other day in December, there will be an OSR Christmas Post. Each post will be labeled in some vague way to hint at the gifts up for grabs and will state wether the gifts are international or US only. PDF gifts are international and many of the donators of physical products are willing to ship internationally (if you don't already realize, international shipping outside of the states is akin to highway robbery these days.) A post may mix PDF and physical gifts, but it is either all or nothing when it comes to international availability - I won't be mixing PDFs and US only shipping on a given post.
When the post goes up you'll have at least 24 hours to add a comment and put yourself into the mix. Only one comment per post please. Post may go up early in the morning, mid afternoon, in the evening - it will vary. In any case, they will be open for comments for at least 24 hrs. The post will be closed to new comments when I make the announcement on the post. Sometime shortly thereafter, a post will go up listing the lucky gift recipients.
Remember, many of the gift givers are publishers freely giving their wares to members of our community. So them some love :)
