Who Uses Electrum These Days? Apparently James Spahn Does - White Star Goes Electrum

White Star went Silver in less than 24 hrs at RPGNow (and Bronze in less than that - so quickly I missed it.)

White Star has now gone Electrum in less than 4 days. To put it in perspective in the OSR scheme of things, X-Plorers and Stars Without Number are at Silver, and they were released years ago (both do have free versions for download though, so you should definitely add them to your electronic gaming collection)

The D30 Sandbox Companion is Gold as is the Labyrinth Lord Revised Edition.

The three versions of Swords & Wizardry are all free, so they get no rankings, although over 4,100 copies of S&W Complete have been downloaded through The Tavern.

I'm sure there are move I've missed ;)


  1. Awesome news! I will add my review to the mix: http://www.ultanya.com/2015/05/review-white-star-science-fiction-rpg_4.html?m=0

  2. That's a very healthy number of sales, and everything I've seen suggests that White Star deserves it. I'm not sure where the markers are for sales these days, but I know Electrum means that it's gotten several hundred at least on that particular site.

    Stars Without Number's numbers are a bit odd, because the free version's medal only counts print copies bought- free downloads don't add anything. The difference between that and the SWN Core's for-pay entry is substantial.

  3. Neat. I'll be interested when this exists in print.

  4. Awesome, thanks for the mention of my review.
