Of course it isn't too late to go down to the FLGS (Favorite Local Gaming Store) and get some dice or maybe even a new supplement. It really just depends on how your group does things.
My group exchanges gifts, but we're all friends outside of the table and our gifts aren't usually gaming related.
This year it looks like the folks over at Dragonsfoot have given us all a great big old present with the release of not just one supplement, but four related supplements!
Seriously, to quote one of my favorite holiday songs, "Hey everybody Holy Crap it's Christmas!" A big...HUGE...thanks goes out to Lenard Lakofka for the release of the Kroten series of supplements:
- L5A: The Kroten Campaign Guide
- L5B: The Kroten Adventures
- L5C: The Kroten Campaign Companion
- L5 Map Pack
Kroten is set in the World of Greyhawk, but like anything else can easily be relocated. There is literally several hundred pages of content here to devour and it will take a while to go through it all. If you haven't given your GM a special gift, you could always download these files, print them off, and give the gift of a cool campaign setting in print and PDF.
Who knows? You may end up with a cool new sandbox to play in next year.....
On a more personal note, I'd like to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas. If you don't celebrate this particular holiday...well I don't wish you anything less because of it. Please take some time to enjoy your friends and gaming now and all throughout 2014.
