The Rising Dark was just released a few days ago, and we already have the first release in a line of supplements for it. The Sun Fury Gazette is 8 pages of free (the price is right) additional information for use a Rising Dark campaign, but it's all ripe for stealing for use in your own campaign world.
The writing is good, but the use of classic (read old) clipart distracts a bit, at least for me. There is a decent amount of clipart available at sources like RPGNow for fairly cheap that made for products like this. Just my 2 cents on it. Again, the price is right, the articles are good... the art distracts.
From the Blurb:
The Sun Fury Gazette: The Rising Dark Supplement I is the first issue of a series of resources for the Rising Dark campaign setting, written specifically for use with Swords & Wizardry and other old school game systems. This first issue is free, and features:
Three new spells presented for use with original edition mechanics
monster stat-block presentations of all the new player character races
additional data on the deities for the world of Agraphar as well as the god of vermin
an article on the kobolds of Agraphar
Future issues will feature more content as well as scenarios for use with The Rising Dark. Enjoy!
