I am participating in Magaly Guerrero’s Pagan Culture Crafting Blooming Howls today and the challenge is to come up with something witch fiction related that you have been meaning to finish.
Really, I didn't just want to upload yet another witch character stat block (though I am sure I still will later today). I wanted to do something special and something different.
Well this year I am finally completing something I have wanted to do for a while.
I am putting together care packages of OSR and Witch fun for our troops serving overseas.
A bit back I posted my thoughts here: http://timbrannan.blogspot.com/2014/10/christmas-really-brannan.html
I have tried to do this in past and didn't get my act together in time so I just sent money to my local VFW and American Legions.
Here is what I have so far:
Copies of Basic Fantasy as the core rules. I think it one of the better interpretations of the OSR rules and a nice sweet spot between Basic and Advanced D&D. Plus it is also the one that is most compatible with my own Witch book. I know there are a lot of great rule sets; OSRIC, S&W, LL...but enough people have also asked to participate or do something similar I figured those rules would be represented.
I am also including copies of The Witch by yours truly. This is a Witches in Fiction crafting blog challenge so this is what makes it "Witch".
At the moment I still need to get some bags to put both books in and get some dice. I want to include some character sheets, a pre-gen witch character (because I can). I will include a letter thanking them for their service and some links to my blog and some others, likely +Erik Tenkar's since that is a good place to start anyway.
I would also like to include an adventure and maybe a dice bag. Make it a complete package.
If this goes well I might do a couple of sets of Spellcraft & Swordplay plus Eldritch Witchery. The nice thing with this is the dice sets will be cheaper and the bags can be smaller.
I am also open to more ideas.
