  1. Read it last night. (I got it a few hours after it went up, in the middle of the night, and someone already had reviewed it on RPGNow.) Very nice. I'll have to look at it more when I'm not half-asleep.

  2. Haha, that was me who got to it first! Already using the D30 DM Companion and have been waiting to get my hands on the Sandbox for a while now. Had only great things to say about this material on RPGnow. I'm surprised that general tables and guides for DMs are not a larger part of the OSR phenomenon. This seems to be one of the few, and the contents are really cool, making it that much better. Thanks for this! It is now a permanent part of my DM arsenal.
