Free GM Resource: Revised & Expanded Petty Gods

Free GM Resource: Revised & Expanded Petty Gods
This week's Free GM Resource is a bit of a no-brainer, at least for me, that should have been up last week. Last Monday I was on a small vacation and had pre-written the post.

This awesome RPG sourcebook (I am clearly biased) was created by the heard of cats that is the "Old-School Roleplaying Community", or ORC. I'd argue that this book was really put together by the chief cat ....er ORC... wrangler Richard J. LeBlanc, Jr. Remember him? He's the guy over at Save Vs. Dragon that put out some great stuff under the New Big Dragon Games Unlimited label.

You really should just go to his publisher page and pick up one of everything, like I have. Get yourself a good d30 or two while you are at it.

Anyway, I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time to help out with this particular book. Richard would put items up for people to work on and it was difficult to get in there and get my dibs. I managed to do two write-ups in the minion section and later when I found out he needed help with some of the more monotonous PDF assembly I was able to do a little bit more volunteering.

Now I don't think it is right for me to actually review a project I've worked on, so I won't, but you could probably guess what I'd rate this based on the following aspects:

  • Free PDF
  • No PDF security restricting printing or document assembly
  • Print versions available at cost (here's the link for the hardcover and softcover)
  • Bookmarked and internal cross-links in the PDF
I'm looking forward to seeing how the community at large reacts to this book and comes together within the confines of ORC for more gaming goodness.
