A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore Now Available!

I am pleased to announce that the pdf version of Adventures Dark and Deep™: A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore is now available in the BRW Games online store!

A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore is designed to bring you much of the new rules and components from Adventures Dark and Deep as a rules supplement, suitable for use with AD&D, Labyrinth Lord, Swords & Wizardry, OSRIC, and similar old-school games.

Adventures Dark and Deep is an attempt to explore what AD&D might have looked like if Gary Gygax had been allowed to stay on and keep developing it. Based entirely on his public statements (both in Dragon Magazine in the early and mid-1980's, various online fora over the years, and elsewhere), Adventures Dark and Deep™ brings new character classes such as the bard, jester, mystic, savant, and mountebank, as well as hundreds of new spells for their use. There is a new alternate combat system that is more streamlined and easier to manage. There are new monsters, magic items, and rules for various things that adventurers encounter constantly such as landslides, weather, pits, and the like.

The book is 135 pages, comes in watermarked pdf format, and features art by the incomparable Brian "Glad" Thomas. The pdf costs $10.

Hard copy versions of A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore will be available soon. The full three-book stand-alone version of the Adventures Dark and Deep rules will be released either in late 2012 or early 2013.
