Free Original "Petty Gods" book And Commentary.

 Gorgon Milk continues to set a pretty damn high standard, he and Peter Gifford have released the original "Petty Gods" as a Free PDF. The book looks pretty damn good. But I have it on really good authority that the new "Expanded" edition will blow this one out of the waters.
In Gorgon's words -  the long-believed lost version of PETTY GODS designed by Peter Gifford and edited by James Maliszewski of Grognardia! To keep things straight, we're officially dubbing this "OPG" -- Original PETTY GODS --
 You can get the original version right over
Hmm, the original clocks in at around one hundred and fifty pages and there are are some really interesting minor gods in here. 
The artwork reminds me of some of the Mayfair games products and the stats seem fairly well balanced. The project seems to match writers up with artists and then present the artwork and entity. 
The entities look pretty useful and might function well in a mid level Labyrinth Lord game.
 The overall feel seems almost "Gothic" somehow and I'm reminded of Lamentations of the Flame Princess in the artwork and presentation.
A DM might be very creative and use these dieties as the center of a game adventure and the ideas presented in here.
The book seems to be in almost the final stages of release but there's a bit of the unfinished about it. However the book is rather well done and I'm grateful that this piece has seen the light of day. Its a nice bench mark to see this book.
 I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I have reading this book.
 Three out of Four stars.
