Boosting the Signal: White Box Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game at Cost

+Charlie "Dream Maker" Mason just posted on Google+ that he finally broke even on his White Box Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game. And since it was never intended to be a money-making venture for him, he is now selling copies at cost.

If you aren't familiar with it, White Box FMAG is essentially S&W White Box with improved layout and art, a few minor rules tweaks and some additions like the Thief class or certain adventuring rules that the original S&W White Box did not offer.

The cover comes in three flavors: red, blue and white – take your pick. It's sold on Lulu, RPGNow, and Amazon. You can get the pdf for free, the softcover for under $5, and the hardcover for about $10 - $13 depending on where you buy it.

Adventure Sound Bites

GM: "The first spider tries to web you."
BRYTAN: [rolls successful save] "I leap into the air and somersault over it."
GM: [rolls for next monster's bite attack, which hits] "And you land right on the next spider's fangs."

Brytan the Rogue sticks the landing.

"New ability: smell-casting."

"We know who carries the pike in that family."

"Do you want to have some fun before we go to sleep?"

"I lean over the hole and give it sniff."

"We have that impotent mage with us, right?"

"There are so many places a Kirby hand can go, and not all of them pleasant."
