OSRIC Player's Reference

EDITED TO ADD: Please read an update here,

Original Post:

The new OSRIC Player's Guide (don't call it a Handbook) is out now for a price that can't be beat.
It's free!

If you are looking to get started in OSRIC then this is a good place to start.
If you want to learn the basics and the thought of picking up the massive OSRIC tome is too much, then this is also a good place to start.

While there is nothing really new here (nor should there be) the cover art is fantastic.

Edited: Seems the cover art is copied from this book.

Not sure what the deal is there.

That was the first thing that struck me. "Hang on that's the Book of Lairs..."

It says "cover/back artwork is public domain". Since when is Larry Elmore's art public domain? Weird.

I am not happy about this to be honest.

I am getting less and less happy about this all the time now.

I've been doing a bit of reading on the Knights&Knaves board and, apart from this "Players [sic] Reference", there's another "Player's Guide" in development and there's a bit of friction between the two branches.
