Alright, we are now officially in The Week of Thanksgiving (US) which means the annual 12 Days of OSR Christmas will be sneaking up before you know it. For those that are gifting and those that are hoping to score a gift or two, things are being changed up ever so slightly.
Where possible, if the gifter has a blog, website or forum that allows comments, the actual "gifting" will take place at the gifter's site. Here's what I mean:
- OSR John Smith, and OSR publisher, wants to donate 1 print copy and 2 PDF copies of his latest release, OSR Beasts & Bellies
- OSR John Smith lets me know what he wants to donate, either as a comment on this post and / or as an email to tenkarsDOTtavernATgmailDOTcom
- I'll compile at list of gifters and the gifts they want to gift and work out a schedule for the gift posts
- Gifts and their respective gifters will be posted here at The Tavern and those hoping to score a gift will be directed to the gifter's blog, website or forum to make their comments there
- Closing date and time for comments will be announced at The Tavern and the gifter's website
- This should help generate some traffic for the gifter's website and get some fresh eyes on different sites
- The current gift giving site / sites will be listed in the sidebar on the right side of this page
- It should also keep me a bit saner with my current work hours. Hell, it will keep me saner no matter what my work hours might be ;)
- Gift receivers would be announced at The Tavern and at the gifting site. The gifting site would be responsible for awarding their prizes
- Some days may have more that one gift giver
I plan on gifting some RPGNow gift certificates and a small amount of print items (print will be US only as shipping outside the states probably costs more than the gifts. Physical gifts will include an 8 GB Remix Mini as well as a slightly water damaged in transit Swords & Wizardry White Box Hard Cover.
Hoping to Kick things off next week :)
