Purple Duck having a $1.50 stock art sale

I'm not sure why, but all their stock art is priced at $1.50 a piece, which is half or more off their usual price of $3 to $4.

I've bought a lot of their art at 30% off during the Christmas and Christmas in July sales, it's really good stuff for the most part. Most of their stuff comes in color, grey scale and line art and I've used mostly their stuff for the cover art of my character classes...

Edit: Over now

New OSR Products at DTRPG — August 27th, 2015

Woof. The cold I usually get at the end of September is afflicting me now, I guess because the weather has been so cold.


Folkloric Interludes: Marriages and Brides to Evil - I guess this is an adventure (the "sample" is just two title pages so it's unclear what the product is), apparently based on German Folklore.  For OSRIC, $1.25 and 8 pages.

Return of the Mad Hermit - Small Nice Games returns with a Swords & Wizardry adventure for levels 1-3. 26 pages (giant single column), $1.99

Space Cede - Short sci-fi adventure and includes a new class. 8 pages, $1

The Folio #3 -  The first one was one of the worst adventures I've ever seen, but I guess enough people like it that it is now up to part 3. $5.99 and 32 pages. And on the plus side, it has Jim Holloway art.


Classes of Pop: Superhero - Superhero (the comic book sort, not 8th level fighter) class for Labyrinth Lord. 2 pages, $1


Game Night Issue One - Apparently this is a comic book about people playing a Swords & Wizardry adventure. $1.99 and 29 pages.

Tome of Tomes Volume 2 - 100 books that might be found on a sage's bookshelf. $3.60, 19 pages.

Gold Box games are on GoG (and Eye of the Beholder)

I pretty much bought all of these back in the day (not the Savage Frontier ones though). Now they are available from GoG (only the Forgotten Realms ones, not the Dragonlance), and also the Eye of Beholder games, and lastly Menzoberrean and Dungeon Hack

New OSR Products at DTRPG — August 20th, 2015

After a very slow week last week, things are back to normal

Also Humble Bundle is having a bundle with Might & Magic games


Book of Lairs - 26 monster lairs (and some new monsters) for the ACKS game. Strangely priced at $7.83 and 74 pages.

The Dreams of Ruin - The PDF is free, but now you can get it in print. Couldn't make it through the PDF, much too artsy for my taste.

The First Sentinel - 3rd to 5th level Labyrinth Lord adventure. 39 pages, $6.99

The Sorcerer's Tome - Another 3rd to 5th Level adventure, this time for Swords & Wizardry. 14 pages, $1.50


Lesser Gnomes's Creature Catalog - Free PDF of new monsters from their modules, Labyrinth Lord stats.

Outer Space Raiders: The Norni -  A new alien race for White Star. 8 pages, 99 cents.

Powers of the Mind: Free Starter Edition - If for some crazy reason you play ACKS, and for some crazier reason you want to add psionics to it, well, here you are. (In either event, my condolences)


Dungeons in Blue: Triple Expansions Pack One - $8.79 for some dungeon maps.

Rifftrax Riffs The Magic Sword

The Magic Sword is a Bert I. Gordon fantasy movie that influenced D&D at least a little bit, some of the magic spells seem inspired by it. It was already done by MST3K, but for some reason Rifftrax is re-riffing it., I guess because it's public domain and they wouldn't have to pay a licensing fee.

New OSR Products at DTRPG—August 13th, 2015

Really slow week, though both new products look pretty good


DAA1 - The Ghost of Jack Cade on London Bridge - The first adventure module for Dark Albion. Strangely, I'm reading a historical mystery by Susanna Gregory set on the London Bridge. Weird place, it had shops and houses on it. And Jack Cade was a leader of an early failed rebellion. $1.99, 22 pages.


Hyperspace Messenger 06 - Cyberware - 18 pages of rules for cybernetics for White Star and other OSR games. $1.

Magical Theorems & Dark Pacts is DTRPG's Deal of the Day

Basically it's new classes and some magic items for Labyrinth Lord or B/X. Some of it, especially spells are rehashed, but some of the stuff is new. At $3 though, not a bad buy.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — August 6th, 2015

Yay, finally got my truck fixed, so am in a better mood than last week.


Mischievous Monsters -  This is a curious adventure because it weights in at a 130 megabytes for 30 pages. Even the preview is 130 megabytes. $3.90 and no levels or specific game listed.

Night of the Mad Kobold - Already mentioned it, free 20 pages adventure


Outer Space Raiders: Zeloxians -  I'm sure eventually Zelox will be the name of a drug. New alien races, 99 cents, 4 pages.

The Vagrant - A free class from Shane Ward of 3 Toadstools. Sort of a down on his luck thief. 7 pages.


OSR Sci-Fi Screen - For White Star, but claims to be compatible with other OSR sci-fi games (Hulks & Horrors and Stars Without Number are cited, and there are several more), but most of them actually have rather different rules  so I'm not sure how compatible they would be with it. $4.99 and 8 pages.

Over the Top: Character Primer - A supplement for Labyrinth Lord which isn't about playing arm wrestling truckers but something even more intriguing, fantasy characters on a WW1 style battlefield. Neat concept, little pricey at $3.69 and 17 pages.

The Sandbox #2 - Free e-zine from Sine Nomine features a new class and lifepath generation for SWN. 21 pages.

Night of the Mad Kobold — Free Swords & Wizardry adventure

Free for the time being at least, so grab it while you can. (And if you like it, wait until it's not free and buy it again).

The town of Cresthill enjoys a favorable location along the winding Graywand River. Trade is good, and the prominent gnomes of House Kelver run most of the businesses to the prosperity of the people. Now, however, a dangerous lunatic—a kobold from the nearby Talon Hills—has decided the gnomes of House Kelver need to be a taught a fiery lesson, and only a band of heroes can stop his plot.
WK0 Night of the Mad Kobold is a short adventure designed for a group of six 1st-level characters for the Swords & Wizardry RPG, but compatible with most OSR games (Labyrinth Lord, OSRIC, etc.). It is set in a generic fantasy setting, easily transportable to most fantasy campaigns. It stands alone but can also serve as an introduction to the WRATH OF THE KOBOLDS module trilogy from Cut to the Chase Games.
Eh. I think I would scream if I fought more kobolds, but I guess some people haven't had enough of them.

Better than giant rats. Just please stop including them in modules.
