    Weird OSR modules?

    I'm on the home stretch of a Greyhawk campaign I've been running for a childhood D&D buddy. I'm using the C&C PHB, but with AD&D supplements and modules. We've done the "standard" stuff, and I'd like for things to get a little weird now ... I've got the Wonderland modules (EX1&2), and I've...

    Is there a Post TSR side to the OSR?

    In another thread someone implied that there is a post - TSR side to the OSR. I am curious to find out if that is true and if so are there 1. any examples and 2. who is claiming it is part of the OSR. I am asking because I understood the OSR - regardless of what the "R" stands for(I've read a...

    OSR: What hasn't been done? What would you like to see?

    The OSR has brought us a bazillion different games. Most of them are fantasy-themed, but there is a whole bunch of them that covers other different eras, themes and approaches from the Stone Age to WWII to... the future! But what hasn't been done? What would you like to see? What should be...

    [OSR] Spears of the Dawn and Scarlet Heroes: What parts are OGL?

    I love both of these books, but neither of them have a copy of the OGL. I can imagine that a lot of the mechanics (attributes) are OGL, but that can't be confirmed.

    Whitehack. Goddamn. This is GOOD.

    I took advantage of Lulu's year end sale to pick up a couple of copies of Whitehack and, after a brief reading, I'm totally sold. Yes, it's a little pricey, but I think I've finally found an OSR game (though not a clone) to tear me away from Holmes Basic D&D (no small feat). Has anybody else...

    Dark Dungeons a Retro-Clone

    I found a free retro clone titled, "Dark Dungeons". How does it compare to Adventurer Conqueror King, and Basic D&D? What's good about it, and more importantly what's not so good? Anyone playing in it?

    [Interest] AD&D 1E (BYO 10' Pole)

    Splitting off from the "Games you'd like to play" thread. That works out to level 6-8, depending on class. Did you have a specific module in mind? What method of ability score generation?

    Mines of Khunmar?

    I was browsing through some old school D&D blogs lately and noticed that Mines of Khunmar was mentioned in more than few couple of years back, apparently it is a megadungeon that was released as free PDF. Is it avaible somewhere? Have you run it and/or do you have opinion about it?

    I would like to announce that I have released a new game. Whitehack is a complete mainstream fantasy role-playing game in only 32 pages. It owes a lot to the Old School Renaissance movement, especially to the previous work of Marv Breig and Matthew J. Finch, but it is a hybrid of old and new...

    Boing Boing article: A promising opening...and then a train wreck

    I was happy to see one of the hobby's main discussions aired in a Boing Boing article. But the central argument derailed badly in the fifth paragraph. Not that I disagree with the premise, I just think the whole piece does not hang together and is not presented as a cogent argument. It veered...
