Heads Up! Great GMs Day Sale Going On Now! 30% Off!

Thought you missed out on all of the great GM's Day sales because you were at Gary Con? Sad because your bi-weekly payday wasn't the week of GM's Day? Well chin up folks. OBS/DrivethruRPG/RPGNOW has a 30% Off GM's Day Sale running until St. Pats Day! That's right. You still have a full week to take advantage of the savings. So, what do they have to offer the discerning OSR enthusiast? Well, here are my picks.

Let's start with North Wind Adventures, who have the entire product line for ASTONISHING SWORDSMEN & SORCERERS of HYPERBOREA at 30% off for this sale! The prices right now are great. I personally love this game. It takes the framework of Swords & Wizardry and crams if full of Appendix N goodness. If you're itching for a classic Sword & Sorcery game, or a fantasy filled with Lovecraftian weirdness, you owe it to yourself to pick this game up. Even if you don't intend to play it as written, the options in AS&SH can add a lot to your Swords & Wizardry and OD&D game. The class options alone are worth a look, and even if you don't want the core game, the adventures are fantastic and can be played on S&W with little to no conversion! I'll be picking up a few of the modules that I haven't had a chance to get yet, myself.

Next up, OSR cartographer Dyson Logos has a trio of goodness on sale right here. Another biggie, if you've missed out in the past. He has Dyson's Delves I and II as well the 2015 Dodecahedron Cartographic Review in the sale. Again, if these are things you've missed out on, now is a great time to grab them.
Last, but certainly not least is a LIST of great White Star products. Grab these while they have this smokin' sale price! White Star may be the best thing to come from Swords & Wizardry since Swords & Wizardry!

Magic Pig Media (+Chuck Thorin ) has two products that I am a fan of on sale, either taking your White Star campaign in a drastically different direction.
Have Death Ray, Will Travel If Rayguns & Rockets are what you seek, this is a neat little supplement that can easily help White Star replicate Flash Gordon and Buck Rodgers style pulp sci-fi as well as 1950's era space exploration games.

Stark Space If dystopian sci-fi is more your speed or you've been itching to run a game based on the work of Philip K. Dick or even Judge Dredd, Stark Space is where it's at.

Between Star & Void Do you like Jedi or Sith? Of course you do. Grab this for a great take on White Star's Alternat Jedi and Sith traditions.

Sisters of the Aquarian Order Speaking of orders & traditions, if you've ever wanted to drop "space witches" like the Bene Gesserit of Dune into a game, this book by +Timothy Brannan is a fantastic piece of work. It is actually written to be able to compliment Between Star & Void

White Star GM Screen Do I need to say anything else?

The Graveyard At Lus A beautiful piece of work from +Jason Paul McCartan! This is a sandbox in the stars! Featuring:
  • A comprehensive toolkit for creating space Graveyards - the result of battles between forces at war in the stars
  • Multiple tables for the creation of starship damage, system damage, and crew survivorship
  • An event table to ensure that exploration is dynamic during sandbox play
  • New rules for Cinematic and Realistic space combat
  • New starship technology including sensors and rules for targeting/repairing specific systems
  • Additional rules for space-based phenomena, space-based explosions, and boarding other starships
  • Four new alien races for your White Star RPG campaigns
  • Updated starship usage for four of the core alien races in the main game
  • Five new creatures, including The Unquiet, a horriffic form of undead
  • Use the pregenerated Graveyard At Lus for your own games, or as a guide to create your own Graveyards.
  • Worksheets and sample hexmaps at the rear of the book to help with generation of Graveyards
  • Designed for use with the White Star RPG, but easy to convert for other OSR sci-fi systems.

  • These are just my personal recommendations. There is far more material in the sale. Check it out. 30% off doesn't happen every day.
