OSR Christmas - Bonus Gifting - Crypts & Things Remastered - 1 HC Print and 2 PDF Copies to be Awarded


+Newt Newport / D101 Games is offering an amazing set of gifts for OSR Christmas. Three fine gift receivers, three fine gifts. One person will receive Crypts & Things Remastered in Hard Cover Print shipped anywhere in the world. Two others will receive Crypts & Things Remastered in PDF. Can I get a Huzzah!?!

The hardcover is a $40 value and the PDFs retail for $13.
Crypts and Things (C&T) is a Swords and Sorcery Roleplaying game based upon the Old School Rules of the 70s/80s. It also draws upon the British fantasy games and game-books of that period to bring a distinctly dark and dangerous feel to the game.
It was originally released back in early 2012 and after a highly successful Kickstarter in 2015 it returns in a Remastered edition, with revised and expanded content and completely new art by David M. Wright.

  1. This looks pretty interesting is based off of a percentile system? I know some of D101 other stuff is very reminiscent of Runequest rules. Is this in that vein with an Appendix N feel (RQ classic had its own Appendix N much like AD&D did, I suspect in homage to D&D)
