I'll be giving away 1 copy away each day; 10 of the 12 will be open to US recipients only, 1 of the 12 will be open to Canadian residents only, and the final copy will be open to any location in the world except the US or Canada. Each print recipient will get a PDF copy as well. 
Second, I'll be giving away 12 PDFs of the Basic Psionics Handbook; again, I'll be giving away 1 copy each day. "

Here's how ya win: Comment on this blog post with why hobbits or ewoks are the best races to ever grace the pages of fantasy literature and sci-fi film.

  15. I am brand new to the OSR (I got started role-playing as a teenager, and didn't even play any version of D&D until college--I started with D6 Star Wars, because Star Wars). I think that the whole Twelve Days of OSR Christmas is tremendously generous.

  16. 28 comments already!? That's great for the community and everything but where sites that leave my chances of winning? It must be like, one in ten thousand out something...

  18. OSR Christmas and what have you done,
    Another fight over, in a dungeon just begun.

    And OSR Christmas, I hope you have fun,
    Delving and looting, don't forget when to run.

    A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
    Let's let's make the roll a good one and save against fear.

    And so this is Christmas for weak and for strong,(I rolled a 3 STR!)
    The rich and the poor ones, the road goes ever on.

    And OSR Christmas for halflings and wights
    For the dwarves and mages, who's spells sparkle bright.

    A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
    Let's hope it's a good one without any fear.

    And OSR Christmas and what have we done
    A self published dungeon, rolled funky dice just for fun.

    And so happy Christmas we hope you have fun
    Delving and looting, don't forget when to run.

  21. The OSR community is among the most generous I have ever seen, this 12 Days of OSR Christmas just confirms it.

  25. Ewoks are the best species to grace science fiction because they are living teddy bears that eat people. Even when they know that they are people. Unless you have a droid that they worship AND can scare them with your Force powers. Or happen to offer some dried rations from your belt pouch.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I rolled a 5. Hopefully the die roll does not reflect in who is chosen. Merry Christmas, all!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, blind comments are still okay here, right? I'd hate to actually have to read about the awesome stuff offered by Barrel Rider or New Big Dragon. Besides, everyone knows that ewoks are at their best when they're marinated in a tomato yogurt sauce and spooned over rice. Ewok tikka masala.

  28. Merry Christmas to me... if I win that $10.

  33. Santa (Cleric 14) lairs with 15d10 small elfin creatures (HD 1/2), each who can create mundane objects at will.

  34. I don't know why I'm commenting, except I can't resist free stuff.

  35. Hobbits are clearly superior to Ewoks because despite the obvious adorable factor the Ewoks possess, Hobbits actually have a real life similar race that was discovered in Flores, Indonesia, that was discovered AFTER Tolkien wrote about his version. Ewoks reclaim their throne if a similar actual race is ever discovered anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So excited about this. Thanks, Erik! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hobbits and Ewoks both have awesome songs.

  52. 'tis the season for some OSR goodness

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm very new to OSR, and only been playing RPGs at all since 2013, but I've been following this blog for a few months now and this is exciting!

    Hobbits are the best to me because after learning to read the first book I ever read at 4-5 years old was the Hobbit, and it's shaped my imagination ever since.

    Also I'm not very good at Google+ stuff and I'm not sure if I'm properly logged in or not.
