Overview of RPGPundit Presents Supplements So Far

So as I reported last week, Precis has been having some computer troubles, and they're still delayed. I've been told there MIGHT be a new release of the next Pundit Presents issue sometime around the end of the week, but if not there'll surely be a new issue next week.

But I'm betting most of you reading this haven't looked at all of the issues so far!  So here's a quick recap of what each one is about:

RPGPundit Presents #1: DungeonChef!
The one that started it all! This is a gonzo guide to what happens when you eat all kinds of typical OSR/D&D monsters, including random tables and more.

RPGPundit Presents #2: The Goetia  (usable for Lion & Dragon!)
This is a simplified version of the demon-Summoning rules from Lion & Dragon, plus a listing of a large bunch of demons and their properties and powers, based on a REAL medieval grimoire.

RPGPundit Presents #3: High-Tech Weapons
A set of simple rules for high-tech weapons, from revolvers to Ion Guns, for use with any OSR game.

A short supplement explaining a different way to use spellbooks, in a more authentic way, if you want to keep the Vancian magic system for your OSR game.

RPGPundit Presents #8: Three Medieval-Authentic Grimoires (usable for Lion & Dragon!)
Three different books of strange and powerful magic to enhance your spellcasters, for Lion & Dragon or any other OSR/D&D-derived game, all based on real historical grimoires.
Another medieval-grimoire spellbook converted for use in Lion & Dragon or any other OSR/D&D-derived game.

Every dungeon needs to have a kitchen sink! Here's a set of random tables for generating a kitchen sink: magical or non, deadly or harmless or beneficial, your players will never know quite what to expect.

A collection of ten famous crazy wizards (all inspired by different historical characters), each presented with their backstory, and a unique new spell or item(s) of use!

An epic gonzo adventure, set in the world of the Last Sun but usable in any gonzo game.  A long-dead wizard is rumored to have invented a modified version of the magic missile spell that might just be the key to defeating a terrible Demon lord. But to get to it the PCs will have to make their way through the demon's borderlands, face his orc armies and wraith princes, and his deadly dungeon. Plus, the Halconlords, Hipster Elves, and Lenny the Cannibal! 

An urban medieval-authentic adventure scenario for Lion & Dragon set in the streets of London (but portable to any old-school game or big city). A trio of rogues claim to have a priceless artifact for sale, but it sounds too good to be true. The PCs have to figure out what's what, and this will lead them to ancient ruins below the city and a terrible inhuman enemy.

When your PCs get to mid or high level, they'll want to do more than just tomb-robbing. This sourcebook covers rules for cost of living, purchasing land, farming, mercenary work, teaching in a collegium, running a clerical priory, or ruling a street gang. Plus small and big business, children and inheritance, and what happens when the local aristocracy start to take notice of you. Usable with Lion & Dragon or any other old-school game.
