Promoting the Free Swords & Wizardry SRD Can Put Credit in Your Pocket and Help the S&W Community

+John Reyst runs the Swords & Wizardry SRD (as well as the Pathfinder SRD, but who has the time to read thru all of that? ;) and he as an idea to grow the Swords & Wizardry Community.

As most of you know, April 17th is the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Dat Blogfest. John wants to keep it going year round. Well, not the blogfest, but the focus on Swords & Wizardry ;)

Here's his email to me:
"Hey Erik! I'd really love to get a massive boost to the traffic on the Swords & Wizardry SRD website so I want to give out a free $10 coupon to one random blog per month that I see in my referral logs for the SRD website! So all people have to do is post a link somewhere that people can see and will click so I can build more of a userbase to help grow the Swords & Wizardry community. I'll check my logs and pick one blog I see sending clicks to me and fire off a free $10 to them. That's about all they have to do! While this is beginning at the same time as the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day I want to try to make sure some of those folks keep coming back so hopefully this might help. So that's it, just a link, and if I see people hitting the site via a link on your site or blog, you qualify."


  1. Did and done, plus I added a custom search bar for the SRD to my blog.

    BTW I am getting a malware hit on your site, had to ignore the warning to even view your site. I am running Avast Virus protection.

    Looks like it's claiming a bit of malware has been installed, called it 4safe (dot) in, weird never seen anything like it before.

    Google had an evaluation of it, posted here.



  2. yeah, it only appears on certain posts, but not the main site

    very strange

    it may be blog roll related, but it's damn near impossible to track down

  3. No malware warning here in chrome. (Though I'm sure that's just because you're a very clever malwarian...)

  4. D20swsrd is a good site!
    Can the above banner be (rescaled and) used on the blogs?

    The custom search bar, especially with the OSR search is great!
