A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore - more than half off today only!


Just wanted to let everyone know that A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore is the Deal of the Day today over at OneBookShelf. You can get the pdf for the ludicrously low price of $4.23!

So if you were interested in seeing the new character classes (bard, jester, mystic, savant, and mountebank) that are included in Adventures Dark and Deep, and all their spells, and the new combat system, and the rules for treasure and naval combat, and some of the new monsters, you literally won't have a better time than today. Ever.

And everything's modular, so you can plug in the pieces you like into your own old school game, and leave the rest. This book is designed to be a supplement for your already-existing game.

Really, how can you not?

At $4.23 for the PDF, I just couldn't pass on the opportunity. It's a wonderful collection of new information, and extremely well presented. Thank you!

I have been looking through ADD and I was wondering why you made the two-fighting penalties so much higher than AD&D (dex 16 in AD&D would be -1/-3 in ADD -3/-7), and are characters with lower than a 15 dex prohibited from using 2 weapons?

To be honest, that was many years ago, and quite a specific decision to track down. I have a vague recollection of something by Gygax either in Dragon or online, recommending the change, but I honestly couldn't swear to it. If something jogs my memory, I'll report back.
