Here we are.
Today i want to establish a new OSR celebration, to be held once a year, to which any blogger out there can participate.
After the S&W appreciation day, it is well time for a new celebration: The Obscure fantasy role-playing game appreciation day
, to be held on the 30th of May of every year.
Every blogger who wish to participate in the event, will have to write a post centered around an obscure/lesser known old-school fantasy rpg, of the kind i write about here on my site (to get a rough idea)..
The post can contain anything related to that game: a rant, a deep analysis, new material, much like the posts created by enthusiasts from all over the blogosphere some days ago for the S&W appreciation day.
The game must be fantasy genre and must have been published between 1975 and 1989. These are the two basic and mandatory rules to be followed.
You have 30 days from now to make your post.
For this year 2013, I WILL GIVE AWAY TO WINNERS FREE COPIES OF
"THE COMPLETE WORKS OF ZORIN GREYSTAR
(CLICK IMAGE ABOVE TO ENLARGE!)
I actually have four copies to bestow. The rulebooks are free, the only cost will be for the shipping amount to physically deliver the copies.
"The Complete works of Zorin Greystar
" is hard to find nowadays (last copy was on Amazon but now disappeared, and Abebooks fails to help as well). Published in 1984, it was a 120 page AD&D house rules. (you can see it in the photo below on the right side).
I will choose the four best posts among those that will be published and then send the free stuff accordingly.
So, time to share the love for obscure fantasy role-playing games of the past! You have plenty of time ahead of you to write your shining post. Good luck.
