Advanced Adventures, are they for me?

Thought I should make a public announcement regarding the Advanced Adventures line of modules for 1e/OSRIC.

1. There is no boxed/descriptive text.
2. They do not have a plot.
3. They are not for new GMs.
4. They should be read at least once (preferably twice) before running.

If you don't like the above, you won't like the series.

A Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe (2nd edition) Hardcover now at Lulu

About 8 years ago I did a small hardcover print run of MMS:WE 2nd edition. If you weren't lucky enough to grab a copy (which sold out pretty quickly) you've only had the digital version or the softcover version to purchase since then.

Now, however, Lulu's massive 50% off hardcover sale (coupon code HC50) has convinced me to put up MMS:WE (2nd Edition) at Lulu as a hardcover. So for today and tomorrow you'll be able to pick it up for only $25 (regular price $50).

World Building Bundle of Holding

Heya folks, I've been silent for a while (heavily working on the as-yet-unannounced-OSR project), but I want you to know that we've another product (A Magical Society: Beast Builder) in the most-recent Bundle of Holding. If you haven't checked out the Bundles of Holding, it's a really cool concept.

So go take a gander and see if there's something there that piques your world building interest (I think that's probable), and don't forget that some of the proceeds are going to Doctors without Borders and World Bicycle Relief - both worthy causes, IMO.

The Magic Hoard: Spice of Boredom

 Little magic item I thought of yesterday while waiting in a Dr.'s Office.

Spice of Boredom: This bland spice causes a particular boredom in any that eat it. If a save vs. magic is failed, the eater loses interest in pursuing whatever is most gripping at the moment. Spice of boredom is also known as spice of peace, as it has ended many wars, or as the spice of fidelity, for obvious reasons. The spice’s effect lasts for as many years as the save vs. magic failed.  Experience Point Value: 100 G. P. Value: 750

Arrow of Skeletons: This arrow has a tooth where its head should be. When launched against any hard surface (wall, shield, armor, etc.) the tooth shatters into 1d6+3 fragments within a 40’radius.

The Magic Hoard - Ring of Grand Wizardy

Ring of Grand Wizardry: This ring allows a Magic User to memorize spells of a higher level than normal. For example, a 3rd-level Magic User (2-1st / 1- 2nd ) with a +2 Ring of Grand Wizardry could memorize (0-1st /1-2nd /2-3rd) or (2-1st /0-2nd /0-3rd /1-4th) as the ring increases one spell level of his casting ability by 2 levels, thusly turning 1st level spell slots into 3rd level spell slots or 2nd level spell slots into 4th level spell slots. Only one level of spells can be increased with a Ring of Grand Wizardry, except in the case of the +1/+2 Ring.

Power                X.P Value        G.P. Value
+1 Level             4,200                52,000
+2 Levels            4,800                58,000
+3 Levels            5,000                60,000
+4 Levels            5,400                64,000
+1 Level             4,800                58,000
and +2 Levels
