So, You Said You Wanted Original Art, Pre-Production Minis and More in Santa's OSR Christmas Sack of Holding?

Christmas of 2013 is going to be a very, very special time in the OSR corner of our hobby. While others fret about the latest 4e/ pre-5e release from WotC or making sure their stocking gets stuffed with Pathfinder miniatures that aren't duplicates, over here in the OSR we have Santa's Multi-Dimensional Sack of Holding. I'm not sure how we can fit even more in, but we're doing it.

Last chance to add to the list (unless we have communicated prior) will be this coming Friday, 11/29.

Today's gifts are courtesy of +Zach Glazar , he of the Whisper & Venom Kickstart. There are some very unique items that Zach is donating for OSR Christmas Giveaway:

- A giant map from the Whisper and Venom Kickstarter

- the prototype minis (5) (4, as I'm keeping one ;) from the Whisper & Venom Kickstarter (these are truly limited)

- a Boot Hill Boxed Set (possible missing one counter)

- an early SSI Gold Box PC Game (Signed by Jim Ward, Steve Winter and David "Zeb" Cook) 

- is a piece of original art by Lloyd Metcalf (giant spider) 

-  number 17/20 of the limited edition Jeff Dee print of the cover of Whisper & Venom, signed of course

- and some other odds & ends

yeah, i think a Stamps.com account is going to be needed ;)

  1. Yah for the Whisper & Venom stuff. I had a chance to read through the setting guide and adventure over the weekend, and they are awesome! The map looks to be amazing, and I have no doubt that the figures are as well. This looks to be an amazing season for the OSR fans!
