Microlite74 Extended Digest-Sized Special Edition Coming Soon

I’m working on a digest-sized special edition of Microlite74 Extended which should be ready in a few days. It will be split into two volumes, each probably around 64 pages. The first volume will include the rules and play/GM advice. The second volume will include spell and monster descriptions. There will be artwork. The print will be larger. This special edition of Microlite74 Extended will be available to everyone who has ever donated to the Retro-Roleplaying Cancer Fund. An edition without all the art will be made available to everyone for free at a later date.

I may do similar digest-sized special editions of Microlite74 Basic and Microlite74 Standard — if there is enough interest.

The Fall 2011 Cancer Fund Drive is on (through October 15th). Every $10 donated gives you one chance to win a copy of ST1: Up the Garden Path (a rare D&D module published by TSR UK in 1986). Highest donors will also divide a list of other TSR and Judge’s Guild RPG items. You can see the complete list of giveaway items and read more about this fund drive in this post: ST1: Up the Garden Path and More to Giveaway (for Cancer Fund Donors). This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetrpoRoleplaying Cancer Fund. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and possibly the above mentioned special items), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal. Thank you!

    Looking forward to the digest sized versions! I have donated in the past, and am curious how you will contact us? Also I downloaded and created my own booklet versions of microlite 74 and posted a picture on my blog.

    If you've donated before, the new book will appear in the same place and with the same password as the other donor specials. If you've lost the password, you can always email me with the Paypal email address you used and the approximate date you donated and I can check my records and email you the password again.

    I just saw your booklet versions of M74. They are FANTASTIC. Far better than anything I could ever come up with. I'm very impressed!

    @ Randall, okay cool I still have the link and PW so I'll just await your announcement! Naw my bootleg edition books are just for fun, looking forward to he real booklet pdf's as the 6pt font is tiny in my booklets!

  4. Randall says:

    6pt type? Ouch! Ouch, the covers on your copies are really neat, however. The type in the Special Edition will be 10 points, however — which should be much more readable. (The current "condensed type" editions use an 8pt font.)
