The first (2010 edition) had about 500 pages. The second (2012 edition) had about 1400 pages. The new 2017 edition has just over 2000 pages. It will be free, of course. However, on RPGNow/DriveThruRPG it will be “pay what you want” with a suggested price of $0.00 — as items listed as free do not show up in their stats. With luck it will be available for download later this week.
Please Support BX Advanced with a Donation: If you would like to have access to the BX Advanced playtest rules (as well as other donor files — like free copies of all the “for sale” Retroroleplaying publications), you can make a donation towards my wife’s medical fund (old oral cancer bills and more current MS-related bills). Donations to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund for $10 or more will also earn a listing as a sponsor in the BX Advanced rulebook. A donation of $10 gets a Bronze Donor listing. ($25+ earns a Copper Donor listing, $50+ Silver, $100+ Gold, 200+ Platinum, 300+ Electrum, $500+ Adamantine) — see the sidebar for a list of donors so far. If you would like to sponsor BX Advanced with a donation, you can send a donation in any amount — small or large — to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund via Paypal.
