A couple of years ago I was the lucky recipient of Mikaze's first (I think?) run of Christmas generosity on these boards. It really made my day during a tough period that year so I paid back the favour when I could and then followed in Mikaze's coattails again last year.

It's becoming very unoriginal now, but doing the same again this year. There's one pdf of each of my 12-ish Days of Christmas gifts up for grabs. First in first served! Everything on the list is either something I got this year and think is great, or something I plan on getting shortly and think looks great. :)

1) The Dragons Demand from Paizo.
2) The Sinking Season One
3) Up to $4 of selections from Super/Rogue Genius games.
4) Hero Kids Fantasy Roleplaying game
5) Indigo Ice from Cerulean Seas
6) In the Company of Fey
7) Advanced Races - Kobolds
8) Path of War - Ongoing
9) The Azure Abyss from Cerulean Seas
10) Towns of the Inner Sea
11) Up to $4 of anything from Raging Swan
12) The Kobold Guide to Game Design
12a) Any one product from Christina Stiles Presents

Super secret last thing - 13th Age Core Rulebook. (okay, secret might be pushing it since I said what it was in the same sentence...)

But anyway, one of each available. Limit of one per person. Merry Christmas!


If I might ask for Azure Abyss for Cerulean Seas...

EDIT: Or Indigo Ice, depending on what others will be asking for.

Marry Christmas.

Lantern Lodge

I'd like Towns of the Inner Sea, please.

Thank you and Merry Christmas


Might I request #12?

Thank you!!

I'll take "good will to mankind", thanks.

I've been really thinking about picking up Dragon's Demand.

I would be very grateful to receive Advanced Races - Kobolds.

Thank you and have a Merry Christmas.


From 12a, may I get Didjer's Crab House?

Thank you so much.

Already got a very generous gift from Paul Watson, so in the spirit of the holiday I'll stand aside and let other people have a slice, too.

Berik, and all you others who are doing this - you are awesome. I am not currently able to afford doing anything like this myself, but I'm sure I'm speaking for a lot of people when I say you all make being a Paizo fan all the more pleasurable.


I'd love "Azure Abyss" or "Indigo Ice", whichever one Drejk doesn't get... LOL

EDIT!!!!!!
I didn't see this the first time around. I'd like "Path of War - Ongoing", if that's ok. And thank you for your generosity. I hope to be able to do this for folks myself one day.


Ooh! Kobolds guide to game design! I already have worldbuilding, this would complete the set!


Oladon already nabbed it - beat me by 36 seconds. And I couldn't even throw a Black Friday elbow.


*sob* The collection- incomplete! My DMing style- stymied!

It's Cosmo's fault.


Hm, this practice may be unoriginal to some, but it's the first time I've seen it and I'm really encouraged. In a year or two, I hope to find myself contributing as well.

Until then, is "In the Company of the Fey" still available?

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

-Myst


Oo oo I'd love to get my hands on the Path of War if possible. Dragon's Demand looks really interesting as a second option, thank you!


I'd love a copy of either Azure Abyss or Indigo Ice if either one is still available :)

Merry Christmas to you, and I hope I can repay the kindness shown on these boards sometime soon.


Okay, trying to catch up on everything here! I'll probably send things out once everything is selected, or early this week if there are a few stragglers. :)

Apologies Rune, but Path of War and Dragon's Demand were already claimed. If DM Beckett wasn't actually asking for it I'll pencil you in as next in line there though. Otherwise anything unclaimed in the updated list is still available!

Raging Swan goodies, Oone adventure, SuperRogue Genius, charming looking HeroKids RPG for kids, 13th age core rulebook all still available!

1) The Dragons Demand from Paizo. - DM Beckett? (Is "I've been thinking about picking up Dragon's Demand" meant as a request for it?)
2) The Sinking Season One
3) Up to $4 of selections from Super/Rogue Genius games
4) Hero Kids Fantasy Roleplaying game
5) Indigo Ice from Cerulean Seas - Tinkergoth
6) In the Company of Fey - Mystically Inclined

Berik:
I'd really like it, as it's one I've really been thinking about running for PFS, but I am also for stepping aside and spreading the wealth, for those that also asked for it. :) Either way, I wanted to say that what you (and others) are doing is pretty amazing stuff. Also for #3, might I suggest either The Godling or The Mistic Godling as options for those that do not seem to be biting. I have most of them, and I think these two are some of the most requested 3PP books I have people ask to use.

The Sinking, please. Thank you for doing this!

Those are both excellent. I'd also like to recommend the obvious Talented series, especially the Talented Monk/More Monk and Talented Rogue/More Rogue which "fix" Pathfinder monks and rogues. I'd also heartily recommend the Shadow Assassin and the Time Thief.


What is the 13th Age Core Rulebook?

Sorry currently on my Phone and bored out of my mind otherwise I would look it up...


If still available: the Genius Guide to the Talented Rogue

Nice one Berik!!!


Honestly is this really a common thing? I was planning on doing something like this next year and on my birthday if I could afford it...

Yep it's a common thing around Christmas, and occasionally 3PPs do something similar. Rite had a daily giveaway a year or more ago...

I am planning a local thing of giving away 5 Core Rulebook and a Bestiary 1 to a local group that is wanting to get into it. But I might just get in on this as a late christmas thing. & I definitely will be giving something away for my birthday. Any thoughts?

Shadow Lodge

Well, if you are looking to get people in, the Core book, Bestiary, and maybe APG are the way to go.


Well I am thinking something a little more unique for the Forums after all nearly everyone here has most of those...


Do we need to send you our email addresses or anything?


No need to send me email addresses. The website has a pretty nifty gifting system so I should be able to do it all with forum names.

This time with fewer links, due to laziness!

13th Age Core Rulebook

Still available:
Hero Kids Fantasy RPG - I actually don't know anything about this except that its a fun looking RPG for kids to play. It's Ennie winning and what I've seen of it looks charming though. Ideal for somebody with little ones! Probably!
Raging Swan things - Surprised this one is still here, Raging Swan do lots of great things. I especially enjoy and recommend the Tribes series myself.
13th Age - A new D20 RPG from Jonathan Tweet and Rob Heinsoo that looks to combine elements of 3.5 and 4e. I must admit that I haven't played it yet, but I have the core rulebook and think it looks a fun system.


As one of the 13th Age playtesters I can say that I love the iconics concept. System-wise it felt closest to simplified D&D 4th edition with some of old (A)D&D influence, except it's geared towards lots of epicness and governed by rule of cool.

Beckett said he was taking a pass on Dragon's Demand to allow others a chance, up thread. And I would love to jump on that chance. Dragon's Demand looks like a lot of fun to start a campaign with!

Might I HIGHLY recommend The Sunken Pyramid for anyone looking for an AWESOME underwater adventure. Full of great fluff and scenery, interesting combats, and not-headachey water combat/travel rules supplements. GREAT adventure, and my introduction to Raging Swan that I will NEVER regret.


I... I don't know what I want more, something from Raging Swan, one of the Godling books, or the 13th Age (and thus gaining a whole new RPG system to abuse and break).

May I have one of those?

Actually, I'll roll for it!
1d3 ⇒ 3

Okay! It looks like it'll be 13th Age!


4 people marked this as a favorite.

Raging Swan also released the excellent So What's The Mount Like, Anyway? and So What's The Exotic Mount Like, Anyway? guides for players, and Tribes Most Foul: Kobolds for GMs.


You know, I just realized: I didn't say "thank you" in my last post!

Regardless of what (if anything) I personally end up with, your generosity is highly appreciated! God bless you, and thanks, not just for stuff I may receive, but what you've done for everyone!


If Becket declined the Dragon's Demand I'll be sure to answer it! Oh my, that is one demanding dragon!

I love the direction the module line is taking and would really like to try it out :)

Silver Crusade

Dude, Berik, dude. Awesome. :)

I'm really glad to see this themed giveaway making a comeback!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Thanks everyone, I really do enjoy doing this. I was planning to make sure I had the finances again after last time and hope I can do my 12 days of Christmas again next year. Helps to get me into the Christmas spirit and I like getting to spread around the enjoyment of some books and publishers that I enjoy. :)

Thinking about a couple of surprises, but in the meantime there's still Hero Kids and something from Raging Swan up for grabs. Have at it!


I've been hanging back for a couple of days, hoping someone else would discover the wonder that is Raging Swan, but since no one has bitten and you're still offering, I would love to have Dungeon Dressing: Mundane Chest Contents and Dungeon Dressing: Simple Magic Traps.

Thank you, Berik, for doing this giveaway! The generosity of some people never ceases to amaze me!


Yeah, I was tempted to snag the RSP option myself, but I have so many Raging Swan products already that I wanted to give someone who didn’t know of their awesomeness a chance to experience it. ;D


Ditto

Curse you! i really was looking forward to getting that one!

Oh well I think I beat you on another one.

Take care everyone! Thanks for this thread!


Phew, mad week at work! But just wanted to let everyone know I haven't forgotten, plan on sending things out tomorrow after work.

And somebody try Hero Kids! :o


Hero Kids is GREAT! Do it! Somebody dooooooooooooo iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!

Assuming nobody else expresses an interest by the time you send them out, I have a friend who leads a church youth group and is a role player. He'd be grateful for a way to introduce RPGs to young teens and preteens.

YEEEEEEEEEEEES! DOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIIT! We need more Christians in this hobby! Woo!

I concur. Hero Kids does look good. Needs about a bazillion more Hero templates though...

Oh, man, does it ever!

I might, however, have suggested that the alchemist get three single dice: 1 ranged, 1 magic, and 1 defense instead of the same thing hunters get.

I'd also have not made Rapunzel the female Hunter, but rather her own kind of archetype... but that's just me. Maybe make her a healer to mesh with the movie a bit more, but grant her the non-magic ranged attack? That said, I do love her abilities.

ANYway, nitpicks aside (and do note: these are all really tiny nitpicks), I love the system. I'm aching to try it out and/or build my own templates...
... now I've just got to convince the neighbors to get together and play this on our Hypothetically-Forthcoming Game Night.

Most things should now be sent out, along with a couple of extras! Hope that everyone enjoys. :D

And on a whinging note my iMac decided to die yesterday! Alas poor iMac. Long live trusty old laptop!
