OSR Christmas is picking up speed so you better hang on tight. You wouldn't want to miss Santa and his mutated red nosed reindeer as they make another pass with the gifting :)
The first offering of the day is a chance to acquire one of three signed print copies of the novel Heraclix and Pomp: A Novel of the Fabricated and the Fey by +Forrest Aguirre . Forrest is a longtime gamer and as he states over at this blog Forrest for the Trees, his first novel has its roots in gaming:
The impetus for the novel came out of a conversation I had in a hallway with members of my gaming group as we were talking about "next steps". I mentioned my desire to write an adventure for two characters and we discussed various options for a pair of heroes that could viably make it through a dungeon crawl on their own. This conversation stuck in my mind, and I finally settled on the idea of a flesh golem and a pixie as an adventuring party. They'd have all the muscle, magic, and sneaking skills any low-level party would need. So I set about writing a short story, which eventually morphed into the novel, Heraclix and Pomp.How do you give yourself a chance to be gifted a signed copy of this excellent novel? Head over to Forrest for the Trees and tell Forrest about your favorite heroic duo. Don't tell me as it won't put you in the running to be gifted. Besides, I'll be peeking over there throughout the next two days to read your answers.
Remember, Christmas Week means OSR Christmas is hot and heavy. Expect another gift coming later today :)
