I have two free copies of Raise the Dead to give away! If you want to be one of the lucky two, then you must do two things, one of them quite easy, the other requiring a bit of arcane 1st Edition knowledge (after all, we are the company with the 1st Edition feel):
1. You agree to write a review of Raise the Dead on EN World and other sites.
2. Email me the proper reply to this brief and puzzling statement: "Fair is the day."
Sound obscure? It is. But here's a hint. This is the first half a passphrase appearing in an old out-of-print TSR module. In that classic scenario, the PCs are met by an NPC who utters this enigmatic phrase, and the heroes must reply appropriately to establish the man's trust.
Send me the right reply at [url=mailto:[email protected]] [email protected][/url]. First two correct answers receive a free copy of the module.
Good luck.

I'll never get any of these questions based on classic 1st ed modules. Image
Oh well...

I'm not asking for characters to be lawful stupid. I want characters who care, who want to be heroes, aren't scared of doing the right thing, and players who try to help make the campaign more heroic.

A mysterious email arrived in my box this morning, containing nothing but the second half of the passphrase.
Congrats to R.H. Veldhuis!

For those of you not quick enough on the draw, I refer you to module UK4 When a Star Falls.
For the winners, enjoy your copies of Raise the Dead.

What was the second half of the phrase?

As both Ayesha Spelt and Rens Veldhuis can tell you, the full phrase is as follows:
"Fair is the day . . . but fairer the jewels of evening."
