Original Edition Roleplaying Appreciation Day Index


Gamers & Grognards is the proud hose of "Original Edition Roleplaying Appreciation Day" or "OERAD" for short. This is a "holiday," of sorts, where gamers can celebrate the first iteration of Dungeons & Dragons (known a Original Dungeons & Dragons or "OD&D") and it's clones (Swords & Wizardry, Delving Deeper, Iron Falcon etc.) with blog entries, podcasts, new products and sales devoted to these games. Every year a date is picked (typically in mid to late April) and upon that date Appendix N Entertainment, through the Gamers & Grognards blog, creates a page linking to all of the festivities. Below you will find links to these pages. Enjoy!




Prior to changing the name of the day to "Original Edition Roleplaying Appreciation Day," Gamers & Grognards hosted "Swords & Wizardry" Appreciation Day for 3 years. This was a day specifically devoted to the Swords & Wizardry game in all of it's incarnations. Below are the Indexes for each year it was hosted, linking to articles, podcasts and sales that were held those years.
