How To Stack The Submissions Deck In Your Favor..

As all of you know, I publish old-school adventures (and a lot of them, I must say). I accept manuscripts in almost any form (I don't accept boxed-text adventures, however) because I expect there to be great variation between presentation of all the old-school stuff.

Today, however, I got my first manuscript that is formatted the way that I format the Advanced Adventures line. Needless to say I am *very* well-disposed to the submission before even reading it. Now, here's to hoping the content and themes are as good a match to my vision for the Advanced Adventures line!

Tome of Tomes

Been a while since I've done one of these, so everyone please welcome back the Tome of Tomes.

The Lands of the Giants
Author: Culdee Syweill
Race: Human
Dimensions: 14x12x1.5
Weight: 25 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, brassboard, vellum, silver clasps and lock
Rarity: Very rare
Fields of Study: Humanoids & giantkind
Special Knowledge Categories: Demography
Value: 350 gp

The last of the three known works of Culdee, The Lands of the Giants provides extensive maps regarding commonly-held giantish territory along with the migration paths of the transhumant hill giant tribes. The work is now rather outdated, but proves a good historical reference regarding the origination of many of the giantish tribes.

AA #25: Beneath the Heart of Empire for sale!

Advanced Adventures #25: Beneath the Heart of Empire is now available via our website as well as in PDF form at www.yourgamesnow.com and rpgnow.com.

Beneath the Heart of Empire is an OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-10 adventures of levels 3-5.
The capital of the Venirian Empire has been re-located back to Venir, and a thriving city has been built above the swallowed ruins of the old city. Various connections to the old city can be found in the sewers, cellars, and other underground portions of the rebuilt city of Venir, and adventurers frequently plumb these depths in search of the secrets and treasures of the empire’s glory days. What lurks beneath the Heart of Empire?

Worlds Apart Cover (Take Two)

So I got some nice feedback on the cover and I'm giving it a second go. I think this one looks more fantasy and hopefully conveys the spirit of the game better than the first.

OSR Calendar Kickstarter Started!

Ok, ladies and gents, I've thrown my hat into the Kickstarter ring with a different kind of rpg-gaming-related project -the 2013 Old-School Renaissance Calendar!

I've spoken about this before and am going ahead with the project. It is a 12-month calendar that will have 12 brand-new OSR illustrations from artists involved in the OSR. Also the calendar will have dates of when OSR material was published as well as dates on when some of the important original material was published. Finally, I'm offering those who wish a chance to immortalize themselves or their games on the calendar by including a specific date of their choice - such as birthdays, fantasy holidays, etc...

I think the calendar will be a cool thing to hang on the wall, and I hope everyone else thinks the same. For a full-sized sample of what January will look like (sans-illustration of course) click here.

For this to be successful, I'll need your help. Please tell your gamer friends about it and lets get an OSR calender ready for the new year!
