Announcing the Winning Blogs of the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogfest

Never in my wildest imagination did I think it would take nearly three weeks to get through the posts from the S&W Appreciation Day Blogfest. Let me state it flat out - the real winners here are the Swords & Wizardry Community and the OSR at large. Everyone that participated added something, large or small, to our collective knowledge, and for that we will be forever grateful. Or at least, I will be ;)

As you probably already know, the prize committee consists of +Matt Finch , +Christopher Helton and myself. Surprisingly enough, we all had the same three blog entries in our top three, but the order of our top three wasn't the same. Still, it wasn't an easy thing to decide as there were so mang good and strong posts.

Without further ado, the winner of the First Prize, which consists of a PDF copy of The Razor Coast PDF for S&W and their choice of Rappan Athuk OR Monstrosities in PDF is:

Mu: Notes For A Lovecraftian Fantasy Campaign Setting For Swords & Wizardry - congratuations! Look for an email from me ;)

The Second Prize winner, who will receive either a copy of Rappan Athuk or Monstrosities in PDF is:

The Basic Illusionist - i'll be contacting you via email once i get a response from the first prize winner, to let you know what your options are.

The Third Prize winner, who will also receive a copy of either Rappan Athuk or Monstrosities is:

Swords, Wizardry and Firearms! - Dak, you'll be contacted via email after I have worked out details with the first two prize winners.

The above prizes were donated by Frog God Games. All hail the Frog God! ;)

Additionally, there are some gift certificates I need to give away - I'll post that up later today.

Congrats to all!


  1. Congrats to all the winners!!!

  2. Congrats! I was just looking over that Illusionist again last night. Really great stuff.

  3. Wow! I'm stoked and honored. Thank
    you. I'd like to thank my family, my lovely girlfriend... Blah blah blah...

    Seriously though, this made my day. Thanks! and congratulations to the other winners, well deserved and much better than my stuff.


  4. Awesome! Congratulations, guys!

    I agree, the OSR is the biggest winner of them all.


  5. Excellent choices, every one of them. Congratulations to the winners, though the real winners are us, the fans.

  6. Congrats to the winners! I was glad to have been a part of this effort! I've since done what Matt Finch suggested and adapted my blog posts into an article for consideration for the next issue of Knockspell. Fingers crossed...

  7. Link to Dak's blog is broke....

  8. Erik, thanks to you and everyone involved with S&W Day. Sorry, I didn't respond sooner, your email got buried in my Inbox and I my lousy job keeps me occupied. I'm still working on Mu-related madness that will appear on my blog soon.
