    OSR Games Wolf Packs and Winter Snow

    Well, I wrote a game, so now I'm gonna sell it. What it is: Basically, a it's hack of b/x D&D, along the same lines as games like Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Beyond the Wall, Adventurer-Conquerer-King, and so on. If you're at all familiar with the OSR, most of this will be fairly...

    [Swords of the Petal Throne] How do you determine starting Esteem?

    I've been playing around with CardinalXimenes' OSR intro package for Tekumel gaming, and I think its a thing of beauty. I don't know if many folks have had a chance to read through it yet (it's fairly new), but I was rolling up a clan/character over lunch today, and had a question. How do you...

    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...

    [Quasar Knight Enterprises] 50% off weeklong Valentine's Day sale!

    Pathfinder and OSR games are home to a wealth of material, but even then some concepts go relatively unappreciated in terms of content. Playable monsters with detailed cultures, alignment-free games, and single class mage-thieves are but a few options. So in the spirit of Valentine's Day...

    Megadungeons List

    Back around mid-2012 I decided to create a Master List of D&D Retroclones and Simulators. For a time it became a very popular resource before it was eventually eclipsed by Taxidermic Owlbear's own list (which was inspired in part by my previous efforts). In regards to last year we saw the...

    Tell me about Lamentations of the Flame Princess

    I knew of the existence of this game, but today it has come specially to my attention, thanks to some of its supplements, like Scenic Dunnsmouth. I have the pay what you want art-free version of the corebook, and I have seen it is another retro-clone. It seems very similar to standard D&D, with...

    How Do *You* Define "Old-School"

    Recently, it occurred to me that it's only about a year and a half before Vampire the Masquerade hits 25 years old, which got me thinking is WoD old-school? I think pretty much everyone agrees that the D&D Rules Cyclopedia is 'Old-School' and that came out in the same year (1991), but I wouldn't...

    [Let's Read] Spears of the Dawn

    Once upon a time, there was a guy named Kevin Crawford. He designed role-playing games of the old-school variety, namely Dungeons & Dragons retroclones and supplements. He was hanging out on an RPG message board when the topic of racial diversity in games came up, and he heard the familiar...

    [OSR] Is the OSR Logo public domain?

    So I consume quite a bit of old-school retroclones. More than a few of them have a logo, of three rooms in a grid-map shaped like the letters "OSR." Although not the only one out there, this is the one I had in mind: Is the symbol intended to be public domain, for any publisher to use with...

    Old School Gaming - Not D&D

    Whenever I read about OSR online it's always about early D&D or D&D retroclones. But the gaming group I play with consistently play old school games, just never straight D&D; things like GW Judge Dredd, 1st/2nd Ed WFRP and other old school dark fantasy games. But I'm not seeing a lot of an old...
