Save For Half episode # 15: "Avremier by Mothshade Concepts"

Welcome to the Halfling Hideaway of Save for Half! This show we’re looking at a modern set of supplements for the campaign world of Avremier by David A. Hill. It’s made to be run with the Original D&D rules (1974), but is flexible enough to run with most any A/D&D rules set. It’s a big project (Core setting book and 4 supplements) but luckily for us our good friend DM Jim from Frog God Games has joined us to complete this review! We look at the setting, new monsters and magic items, and ask the eternal question...what does this have to do with Patrick Swayze?

No Flutterpotami were harmed in the making of this episode, though we tried!

This was a nice episode. I saw the lbb style booklets at NTRPGCon and picked them up knowing nothing about them. Something about that format always suckers me in. Later I found hardly anything out there talking about them besides your podcast (and where they're available on drivethrurpg). Super interested now and am excited to read into them.

Seems to me like it assumes an OD&D + Greyhawk base, not just the lbbs, or all the supplements. Curious how y'all lined up on that?

Agreed, though Greyhawk was selective. Now that you've had time to look 'em over, any opinions?
