Today’s Daily Snapshots:
- John M. Stater has released Blood & Treasure 2nd Edition on DriveThruRPG [AL] and RPGNow [AL], as well as Lulu. The 268-page revision to the original game costs $9.99 for the PDF, and is a “rules light, options heavy” game. While this game includes rules for referees and players in a combined edition, the game will be supplemented with a monster book, which will also be available digitally and in print. Print versions of the game will be available soon.
- Wizards of the Coast have released two of the Mentzer-era Basic D&D sets, further completing the digital availability of the original boxed sets. The first set to be released is the D&D Basic Expert Boxed Set (DriveThruRPG [AL], RPGNow [AL]) and the second is the D&D Basic Companion Boxed Set (DriveThruRPG [AL], RPGNow [AL]). Both PDF versions of the sets cost $4.99. The content included in these sets was eventually revised and included in the D&D Rules Cyclopedia (DriveThruRPG [AL], RPGNow [AL]).
- Paolo Greco of Lost Pages has posted an article on his blog about how he runs hexcrawls.
- Martin Ralya has posted a phonetic alphabet for D&D inspired by the NATO phonetic alphabet.
