OSR Christmas 2014 - Day 2 - Whisper First, and find a Companion before entering the Castle of the Mad Archmage (Print - US Only)

Wow. Simply wow. Putting the 12 Days of OSR Christmas together, I never expected the amazingly generous response it received. I know our community is awesome, but they have outdone themselves.

Day 2 is an "In Print - US Only" Day. Have no fear my international patrons of The Tavern - there are physical gifts that will ship internationally coming up and more PDF goodness to be had.

Where to start?


Lesser Gnome, aka +Zach Glazar , has been a generous supported of The Tavern and it's patrons the moment Whisper & Venom was released. Zach claims he owes me a beer at the next NTRPG Con, but the truth is, I owe him a dinner or two. (Edit - Zach WILL ship this internationally-indicated if you are out of the US, so I can put you in the right pool)

This year, Zach is offering two gifts, given to one random patron as a bundle. One of the very last Whisper & Venom boxed sets AND The First Sentinel (Limited)


+James Spahn , he of Barrel Rider Games, is offering a signed copy of the Player's Companion for Swords & Wizardry. I'm very happy to have had some small influence on bringing James to the dark side to the world of Swords & Wizardry ;)


+Joseph Bloch , the man behind Adventures Dark & Deep and the Greyhawk Grognard blog, is offering a set of his Castle of the Mad Archmage megadungeon books in softcover as a bundle. This is the adventure book, map book and illustrations book. I've been running this with my Friday Nite "B Team" for a number of months and my players eagerly return for more with each session.

Now, you know what to do, right?

Add a comment to this post and sometime after 830 PM tomorrow night (NYC Time) three random commenters will be drawn to receive the above gifts.

Current events in NYC may delay me, so this post may remain open longer than expected, but don't delay - comment now!

(remember, these ship to US addresses only. If you are outside the states and can strong arm a US resident to forward any possible gift to you, by all means, jump in)
