Purple Sorcerer is Adding 10 PDF Copies of it's Releases to the S&W Appreciation Day Gift Pool



+Jon Marr , also known as the main man behind Purple Sorcerer Games, is putting 5 PDF copies of The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk and 5 PDF copies of Perils of the Sunken City into the gift pool. While written for the DCC RPG, Jon will be posting an article on how to use DCC adventures and resources in your Swords & Wizardry game.

Wow, let me figure out the current "gift basket" for the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogfest on April 17th:

Frog God Games will be giving away a PDF copy of Monstrosities to the blog post deemed "the best of the blogfest by Matt, Chris and myself. You can also hit Frog God for snazzy graphics to show your support of the S&W Appreciation Day.

Spes Magna Games is giving away a $10 RPGNow gift certificate to a random participating blog.

+Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor will be giving away 5 copies of his zine, The Manor. You'll need to hit his blog on the 17th for details. Heck, hit it before then, it's a damn good blog (as are os The Manor)

I'm throwing in 1 $10 gift certificate and 3 $5 gift certificates to random participating blogs. As we have surpassed 100 participating blogs, I'll also be throwing in 2 $5 gift certificates to random commenters on the S&W Appreciation Day blogpost that goes up on this blog on the 17th. If the winning commenters are also members of the 2,000 Coppers G+ Community, I'll double their gift to a value of $10.

Add in the Purple Sorcerer stuff, and it's an amazing "gift basket" which I expect to grow a bit further yet.

    1. Bloggers from Brazil, Finland, Italy, Turkey - I'm sure I'm missing some other than English as a primary tongue locations ;)

      I would have been ecstatic with 50 blogs lined up - this is simply amazing :)

    1. reviews, thoughts, new monsters, items, encounters, literally anything you can think of.

      length is up to you - i guess a paragraph minimum

      Delete
  4. I am confused with which post I should respond to join the appreciation day. If it is ok here: http://jaspersrantings.wordpress.com/ would like to join. In five words or less: Random D&D/OSR/RPG and Geekish Amusements.
