Yesterday I announced The Tavern would match the first $250 raised by Tavern Readers for Chuck Wright's medical and physical therapy expenses.
You folks gave about $400 that I know off (in less than 12 hours), and we did match the first $250.
I later announced that The Tavern would give away two $25 RPGNow Gift Certificates to two randomly chosen readers of The Tavern that give to the Chuck Wright Fund prior to 9PM Eastern, Wednesday, April 27th.
This morning I announced that +Jon , he of Purple Sorcerer Games, is donating 10 PDF copies of the Sunken City Adventure Omnibus & Guide to be given to ten random Tavern Readers that give to Chuck's Fund prior to 9PM Eastern time, Wednesday April 27th.
Well, now thanks to the generosity of +Far Away Land RPG 's Dirk Stanley, we are now adding five PDF Copies of theFar Away Land RPG: Tome of Awesome to the mix.
Edit - Huge thanks to +Reid San Filippo for offering add 5 sets of a full PDF run of Crawling Under a Broken Moon (issues #1-#13) - the gifts just keep on coming - ET
Another Edit - +John Stater just added a PDF copy of everything he's published - NOD, Blood & Treasure, Grit & Vigor, etc. Holy crap!
Again, all you need to do is indicate your donation on ONE of the FOUR posts I've made in regards to the Chuck Wright Fundraiser (not all four please) and you'll be in the running for all the gifts. You can win more than one gift, but no one can win the same gift twice. It's weighted, so $10 gives you one chance and $50 gives you five chances and so on.
What is the Far Away Land RPG: Tome of Awesome?
Welcome to the quirky and bizarre world of Far Away Land. This is a world where noknil clones are part of a hive mind, where clown plants hurl terrible jokes while stabbing their victims, where a cataclysmic event of the past has sewn together the various realms of creation to a forge a nexus point on a fantasy world known as Far Away Land.
Far Away Land is a rules-lite fantasy role-playing game that uses six-sided dice. It mixes fantasy, sci-fi, and apocalyptic elements to create an immersive and rich world full of history and adventure. It is easy to learn and a perfect game for new (young) gamers as well as veteran gamers. All of the Far Away Land books contain colorful artwork, humor, and rules that allow gamers and GMs to pick and choose the level of crunch they want in their game.
The Tome of Awesome contains everything from the Far Away Land Core Rules, Creatures Volume I, Companion Rules, and Tales of Awesome under a single cover. It features a bunch of extra artwork. The Tome of Awesome is available as both pdf and hardback. The physical book is hardback, full color (with about 200 pieces of artwork), 5.5x8.5 inches, and over 300 pages.
