Sorry for the delays folks. Things have been hectic over at STRAYCOUCHES. The combination of Holidays, deadlines, and building (my new home) has filled my world with a huge amount of STRESS. But after forcing myself to not do anything for a few days, re: New Years!, has helped. I've been back ordered on pretty much every issue for a couple weeks, so orders have been sitting in the Inbox for a bit. But new copies are at the printer, so I'll be shipping a ton of stuff tomorrow, when I get the pages back from the printers, then there is folding & stapling, stuffing envelopes, then SHIPPING!

As for the 12 Days of OSR Christmas, I'll be figuring those out TODAY (so expect an update, and winners expect to be contacted soon.) Physical copies will also be shipped with the back log of orders. PDF awards around the same time.


P.S. The next issue of Crawl! is still open for submissions: The theme is Luck and House Rules.

12 Days of OSR Christmas 2015

Every year the indomitable Tenkar of Tenkar's Tavern gives away a ton of Old-School RPG goodness. This year ain't no exception. I'm again participating and giving away a bunch of stuff. (BTW, yes, I'm still around. Things have gotten really busy, but that's not what this is about.) 

To be given away (Anywhere in the world!):
  1. 1 complete set of Crawl!, printed+PDF. 
  2. 2 complete sets of Crawl!, PDF editions.
  3. 3 single copies of anything I publish, in print +PDF, winner's choice (including Hack: Firearms print ed.)
  4. 4 copies of no.11 (Print + PDF).
  5. 5+ copies of Dungeon Crawl Basics (proof of concept/beta/not final print copies, and free copies of the final edition when finished.) 
That's a LOT of stuff, 15 prizes! And yes, physical copies go anywhere a postman will go.

Here are the rules:

Reply with an original WIZARD's name and the name of that/or another wizard's Home/Land/Domain.

Reply in the comments below. Be sure to include contact info (email or G+). Eligible winners will be picked at random. Wizard names will be used in some table, or something, forever credited, etc. If you don't care to be creative or whatever, that's OK too. But at least make something up.

**UPDATE**: Entry cut-off will be Sunday, Dec 27th.
