Get Yer Gongfarmer's Almanac (Vols 1-6) Right HERE

Post by GnomeBoy » Wed Apr 20, 2016 6:09 pm

UPDATE: BOTH SETS GONE TO NEW HOMES! BUT I'LL BE DOING THIS AGAIN WITH THE GFA FOR 2016! WATCH THIS SPACE (OR A SPACE NEAR THIS SPACE)!


I have two complete copies to give away (for the cost of shipping)!

These are available first come, first served — and whomever is actually the very first, can have their pick of the two versions pictured below...

There is the Many-Colored Covers version, a.k.a. Prismatic Spray.

And the "Drown In The Brown" all-brown covers version.

PM me your interest, and I will update this page as fast as I am able. They are only available while they last! This offer may never come again! Supplies limited! Not available in all states (of mind)! Act now! Batteries not included! Discontinue use if you develop a rash! Ask your doctor is Gongfarmers Almanac is right for you...!

Shipping in the USA is $6.45, which gets you all six volumes. You'll need to be able to send the funds via PayPal for this to work. Shipping outside the US of A is probably significantly higher. I'm willing to send outside the US, but again, you'll need to cover the shipping. If you want to research the cost, they are shipped in a Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope.

FYI: They may not reach you in pristine, mint, collectable condition (but I wouldn't expect them to be all that bad, unless your local letter carrier is a bugbear).

Any questions, just ask!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand GO!

The "Drown In The Brown" edition is winging it's way to a new home as I type this!

And as I type this, too.

It'll probably be in its new home, settling in and eating the furniture by Saturday.

Did I mention that there is extra content in these that is not available in ANY OTHER VERSION of the GFA?

One set remains....

My apologies if I was not clear....and I wasn't.

When I said I'll bite...I meant, I'll take it.

Now I realize not only was that not clear, but I didn't PM it...

And yes, 'tis Blood Axe who's claimed the second set.

I'm sorry that I didn't cotton on to your meaning, Jim. I just took it as curiosity about what extras were contained in them... :(

FWIW, I will be offering copies of GFA 2016 once they are available — same Gong Time, same Gong Channel!

(And same, first-come-first-served policy.)

Got mine a day earlier than expected. GnomeBoy wasn't lying, there's definitely a nice little bonus in here. Given the nature of it, I think I'm going to play this one close to my chest. But I think my players will find out this Sunday...

If it's what I'm pretty sure it is, I'd love to hear how it turns out... Well, honestly, whichever bit it is, I'd love to hear how it turns out... :twisted:

Awesome. :D

Hope that one extra bit wasn't crumpled beyond recognition/usefulness... :wink:

My group got together this Sunday over Google Hangouts and I decided to give "The Umber Woods" a whirl. Rolled "Retrieval Mission" and the "heavily overgrown caravan." Using some quick Judge skills I interpreted that to mean that the party's elf was having a favor called in by her patron, The Three Fates. She was to go into the Umber Woods and search for "The string Lachesis cannot measure." They eventually found seven carts, heavily covered in vines. To their surprise, when the vines were removed the contents of the carts and the corpses of their drivers were perfectly preserved. The players quickly uncovered all the carts and found a man shaped sarcophagus in the final cart. The cart driver's pocket contained a note saying that the sarcophagus was to be delivered to the Temple of Justicia and was not to be opened under any circumstances. Even more bizarre, the note was dated 63 years in the past.

A voice from the cart plead to be released. Borrowing a bit from the Chained Coffin the occupant claimed to be a Cleric of Justicia that had been sent to imprison a demon in the sarcophagus but was tricked by the demon and imprisoned inside the sarcophagus instead. He claimed that if he was returned to the Temple of Justicia they would assume he was possessed by the demon and would mistakenly torture him to death to exorcise said demon.

The party decided to take the sarcophagus back to their base and deal with it there. But as they left, the caravan drivers, all 7, re-animated and demanded the return of the sarcophagus "For he belongs to US for all eternity!!!" The party fought the strange vine covered zombies (re-skinned Vine Horrors from "Sailors on the Starless Sea") and eventually the party Cleric scored a natural 20 to turn undead and was able to turn the tide in the favor of the party.

Ultimately they decided to free the occupant of the sarcophagus, who at least appeared to be a male human in clerical garb. Was he? I'll decide that later. But for now, The Three Fates were appeased...

That sounds fantastic!

Especially as I am sat here, working on the expanded write-ups for certain of the entries on that page, for my blog.

If anyone is interested, here is a low-res copy of The Umber Woods that was sent in to the Contest:
