I've just skimmed this so far, I'll give it a more thorough reading later - but this is very well done. The art is fantastic, and it looks like you filled in a lot of the missing bits absent from White Box. Also, I'm glad to see my 'Essential Adventuring Rules' were useful to you!
If you would prefer one of the color covers, they are currently in process and will be available soon. They will be printed on higher quality paper and the price will be a little higher (working out the details on that) but still very reasonable.
I've seen the B/W one of the tree somewhere before. Is it "public"? I'd love to DL it for my home game.
My favorite is that dragon cover. Epic without being "overly-produced".
I am thankful to all the original creators of this hobby and to all the work done by it's current guardians. Every time we play, we get to visit a different world, explore it, marvel at it's beauty....and take treasure from the bad guys!
This is the "OSR" version of the Original rules I recommend to anyone who doesn't want to muddle their way through the original (not that I see a problem with that, but different strokes, etc.). The rules are well laid out and so simple that they're compatible with just about anything "old school" D&D or based on the SRD. I also love that there is a variety of cover pieces to appeal to different audiences (I have the red dragon cover myself). But the new cover is fantastic...
