Rafael Chandler (Teratic Tome) Has a New Release - And He Will Be Giving Away Some Free Shit - Print & PDF to Celebrate!

One of the Most Amazing Game Book Covers - EVER

Write this down somewhere - you want to check out Tenkar's Tavern the next two Mondays for the chance to get some awesome free shit, Teratic Tome and Roll XX, to celebrate the release of +Rafael Chandler 's latest project - SlaughterGrid, an adventure for OSRIC.

The plan is to give away 3 print copies of Teratic Tome or Roll XX (winner's choice) to the top 3 character death write ups and PDF copies of the same to 3 random entrants.

Now, i say check the next 2 Mondays, as it all depends on whether or not the print proof of SlaughterGrid needs any tweaks, but I want the lads and ladies to get themselves ready for this. We haven't decided how long to leave the contest open, but I suspect it will be along the lines of 72 hrs.

So, think of the most awesome, heroic, funny, gruesome, pathetic, surprising character deaths you can think of and get them ready - we may be asking for your entries as soon as May 12th.

Oh, almost forgot this piece for Rafael:
The other thing: for each person that posts, I'll reduce the price of Teratic Tome (PDF) -- meaning that if enough people post, then yeah, I'll give it away for free!
So, if enough people post, everyone fucking wins. Awesome!

Personally, I think the Teratic Tome is one of the best moster books in the OSR. Definitely the best if you are looking for new adversaries to throw at your party and not more of the same old same old.

Needless to say, I own it in hardcover as well as PDF.

edit:
+Rafael Chandler has spoken - anything below supersedes anything above:

Don't buy the Teratic Tome until after the contest! First of all, you might win a free print copy, or a free PDF, if you're one of the lucky winners.
Second, the minute the contest starts, I'm dropping the price of the Teratic Tome PDF (which is currently at $6.66) by a whopping $2.16 (because 216 is 6 cubed, hail the Dark Master), and for each person that participates in this contest, I drop the price by another two cents.
Therefore -- if 100 people participate, then when it's over, the Teratic Tome PDF will go from $6.66 to $2.50, which isn't so bad. And that's a permanent markdown. Hardcover will also be discounted, not sure how much yet (got to do some lipstick-math on the cocktail-napkin, I'll get back to you). Even if you already have it, by chiming in, you're dropping the price for anyone else who wants it.
Also!
If you participate, you automatically get a free PDF of Roll XX or Roll XX: Double Damage, and you could also win print copies of those books, or Teratic Tome (or ViewScream, if you're into that kind of thing), just for talking about your favorite character death. Is that cool? Yes it is. 
It should be a blast. Fingers crossed that the proof copy of SlaughterGrid is error-free. And that I can figure out an easy way to get all these PDFs and print copies to people afterwards.

  3. I'm dense: is THIS where we post to enter the contest?

    Hmmm... best character death... not too exciting, but I did have a character running full speed thru a forest crit fail a notice check and run straight off a cliff to a fall of several hundred feet... splat.

    My favorite death of a character while I was DMing is the ranger who was down to 1 hp who kicked open a door only to be met by a cone of cold doing a cool 70 points of damage (see what I did there?). Negative 69 hp is pretty frickin' dead.
