GIVEAWAY DETAILS

This post is part of the 12 Days of OSR Christmas which his gloriously hosted every year by Erik Tenkar over at Tenkar's Tavern. This year, as part of the many giveaways by the folks in the OSR community, I'll be giving away the following items:
First, I'll be giving away 12 print copies of the Creature Compendium. I'll be giving away 1 copy away each day; 10 of the 12 will be open to US recipients only, 1 of the 12 will be open to Canadian residents only, and the final copy will be open to any location in the world except the US or Canada. Each print recipient will get a PDF copy as well.

Second, I'll be giving away 12 PDFs of the Basic Psionics Handbook; again, I'll be giving away 1 copy each day.
In a nutshell, I'm making 2 posts each day for commenters... 1 for the Creature Compendium and 1 for the Basic Psionics Handbook. Each will be open for 24 hours, offset by 12 hours from the other giveaway. Creature Compendium comments on a post are open from 6am EST (when the post goes up) to 6am EST the next day (when comments for that post close, and the next post goes up for comments). and Basic Psionics Handbook comments 6pm EST (when the post goes up) to 6pm EST the next day (when comments for that post close, and the next post goes up for comments).

All winning print items will be shipped at the conclusion of this contest. All winning PDF items will be sent (through OBS) within 48 hours of the selection of the winner for that day.




UPDATE: Congratulations to Mike Monaco on being selected as the recipient of this item!

  13. I am new to the OSR (I started reading Tenkar's Tavern because of Tenkar's coverage of the Far West debacle), but I love monster books.

  15. I am not familiar with your stuff, is it system agnostic or does it favor a particular system?

    1. The d30 books are mainly system agnostic.

      Most of my work is generally compatible with early D&D editions and retroclones (OD&D/S&W, BX/LL, AD&D/OSRIC). The Creature Compendium is "dual statted" (top stat block based on 1e MM, and bottom stat block based on BX D&D).

      The Basic Psionics Handbook is specifically designed to bring psionics to BX/Labyrinth Lord (but is generally compatible with OD&D as well).
