I was surprised to see that For Gold & Glory
was no longer hosted on it's old site. The reason for that apparently is that it is no longer a work in progress but a full release (or at least a true beta).
It's now hosted on Lulu, where it can be grabbed for free in PDF.
No print option as far as I can tell.
I've read thru the rules, but has anyone actually taken them for a spin? I'd love to hear about it if you have.
Thank you Erik. I have been trying to find this clone for awhile. None of the links every worked. I cut my teeth on 2E and have wanted to get this for awhile.ReplyDelete
Pretty awful cover art. But it's free, yes?ReplyDelete
it is free :)Delete
I'll be the first to admit that my artistic skills aren't very good. If you know of a source for better artwork that's free, I'd love to hear about it!Delete
I actually like the cover. :)Delete
Head to Fotolia and look up "Dusan Kostic". He's got a lot of general-purpose photo stock, but he's also got some of his painted fantasy work up which is excellent stuff. One piece of stock art even made it into the Numenera core book. It shouldn't cost more than five or ten bucks to get a suitable dragon.ReplyDelete
Second edition had better art, but this cover would be charming for an OSR clone of an earlier edition. I like it for having the feel of 70s art used on self-published products.ReplyDelete
I, too, would love to hear some thoughts on how well it compares to "stock" 2nd Edition. 2E was my favorite, but it got too bloated too quickly.ReplyDelete
Aside from a few minor things from the Complete Books and/or Player's Option (weapon proficency groups and rules for humanoid characters in certain bestiary entries), For Gold & Glory hews close to the AD&D core ruleset.Delete
Thanks for posting this link. I don't have the finished clone yet. Nothing wrong with the cover art, and its definitely a shade better than the mono-blue stamp art in the core 2e books. :PReplyDelete
