OSR Christmas - Day Nine - X2 - Castle Amber - POD + PDF (B/X)



Its Day Nine of OSR Christmas. Before we get to today's festivities, let's find out who is the recipient of yesterday's awesome gift.

I would do a drum roll but that doesn't work so well on a blog post. Oh well.
Jan Egil Bjune - congrats. Email me at tenkarsDOTtavern and we'll get you hooked up.

Now for today's gift. We are giving away X2 - Castle Amber is Print on Demand and PDF. Quite possibly the most popular of all the "X" modules.
Trapped in the mysterious Castle Amber, you find yourselves cut off form the world you know. The castle is fraught with peril. Members of the strange Amber family, some insane, some merely deadly, lurk around every corner. Somewhere in the castle is the key to your escape, but can you survive long enough to find it?  
This module contains referee notes, background information, maps, and exploration keys intended for use with the D&D Expert rules.  
For characters level 3-6.
