On the First Day of OSR Christmas, My DM Gave to Me...

OSR Christmas, Day I - what does OSR Santa have in his bag today?

1 - Print Copy of Swords & Wizardry Continual Light (US Only - others will receive an RPGNow GC for $7)

1 - Print Copy of The Midderlands (US Only - if outside the US a PDF copy will be substituted and the print copy goes back in the mix) (Note! May not ship until after Christmas)

1 - $10 Gift Certificate to the Frog God Store

For the above, comment below with your Holiday wishes before 11 AM Eastern, Friday December 15th, 2017. Gift receivers will be randomly chosen from the comments placed in that time.

Additionally, the Gaming Ballistic Blog is gifting on their end:
This year, my Dungeon Grappling and Lost Hall of Tyr products are participating in Erik Tenkar’s 12 Days of OSR Christmas. 
And today’s day 1. 
Each day I’ll be giving away a PDF of one of these products, and every third day (16th, 19th, 22nd, 25th) I’ll give away a physical copy of one of the two! 
Leave a comment to be considered for the drawing each day!
So, leave your daily comments at Gaming Ballistic and get in the mix!

It's quite possible I missed a gift or two on this list - if I missed something (or you still want to add to the OSR Santa list - email me at tenkarsDOTtavern at that Gmail thing with "OSR Christmas" in the title. I've been messaged through Facebook, G Plus and other email addresses and such is the way of madness. Trust me on this. I suspect one or more has slipped through the cracks ;)

If you want to run the giveaway for your gift(s) on your own site, please email me at tenkarsDOTtavern at that gmail thing and let me know how and when you want to do so.
