Black Hack Late Pledges

We've had a quite a few requests from people wanting to join the campaign as late backers. We also have around 20 backers whose payments have not been successfully collected by Kickstarter who have been automatically dropped by the system.
In the past, to deal with these issues I've been happy to collect manual Paypal payments from people. However, given the scale of this project, it is not really workable and would probably lead to problems when it comes to the fulfilment stage.
To solve this I've set up 3 preorder products that essentially duplicate the Level 3, 4 and 5 rewards. The only differences being that they cost 10% more, and do not include access to the beta document. These preorder products will available until the project survey deadline (surveys haven't gone out yet), which will be in early August. Preorders will be posted after the Kickstarter rewards, but before the Second Edition products go on general sale. Any preorders that also include general stock products will be held until the preorder items are ready for dispatch. There are no add-on options for these preorders.
Here's the link to the product page:

FOSSIL Booklets and new Mapping Pads

Hot on the heels of Black Pudding Issue 4, which landed last week. I now have the print copies of the FOSSIL B/X Character Generation booklets. They cost £1 each, or you can buy 3 for £2, or 10 for £5. This makes them cheap enough to buy in bulk and give one to each player to keep.

You may find them here:

FOSSIL B/X Character Generation Booklet

FOSSIL (Fantasy Old School System Index Lite) is a bare bones OSR system that is roughly compatible with B/X rules and retroclones (the rules have parity with Labyrinth Lord). This first booklet covers character generation and advancement.

The booklet is just 12 small pages (landscape DL 210x105mm) yet includes everything needed to generate and equip a B/X character. It also includes advancement rules to tenth level, combat and damage tables, full descriptions for first level cleric and magic-user spells, and a blank character sheet.

There are two versions of the PDF. The first one gives clerics a spell at first level. Whereas the second one gives clerics their first spell at second level and follows strict B/X spell progression for clerics thereafter. Otherwise they are identical.

Professionally printed copies of this booklet will be available from Squarehex.co.uk in April 2018. I hope to include a sticker with each printed copy that will allow the alternate cleric spell advancement to added as an option. My aim with the printed edition is to make it very low cost so that a GM can give out a copy to each player at the table for minimum outlay.

Work on the second booklet with Game Mastering rules is underway. Following that there will be a Spells booklet and possibly a Monsters booklet. In addition there is also my B/X Monster Reference Index which is already available in print and PDF.

The PDF cost $1 from RPGNOW.com: http://www.rpgnow.com/product/237131/FOSSIL-B-X-Character-Generation
