    [The Black Hack] Cool Fan-Made Hacks

    So I backed the Kickstarter for 2nd Edition a while back and I'm thinking of doing some things with it and probably using some of The Lazaro Heresies rules. In particular I'm thinking the Roll High or Die rule is one I'll implement. One thing I've noticed, and it may well be down to the fact...

    [Let's Play] Tales of the Unknown: The Bard's Tale

    Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1985! Oh, my friends... this game. This game. Back in Ye Auld Dayes, my family had an Apple IIGS (upgraded from a //e) and I whiled away many happy hours with The Bard's Tale. The IIGS port knew precisely how to leverage the spectacular graphics and sound...

    Looking for a barely-remembered D&D adventure

    One of my first exposures to roleplaying games was an adventure supplement belonging to an older friend of an older friend. This was around 1985 or so, and I was a wee lad, so I don't remember much about it; the only things that really stick in my memory areAt one point, the party was attacked...

    [Sell me on a system] [Roll20] Sword & Sorcery that isn't too story-game or too byzantinely-complex to run

    Hey guys! With my D&D5e campaign over, one of my players asked for a Sword & Sorcery game, in the molds of Conan, Stormbringer, Lankhmar, and other icons from the genre. We agreed to not use 5e, as we are waiting for more high-level options for our next campaign (there are not enough monsters...

    Advice and ruleset recommendations for an OSR mapcrawl/hexcrawl/dungeoncrawl?

    I've been thinking of running a dungeoncrawl in the old-school style and then maybe expanding into a hexcrawl from there as the PCs rise to a higher level. Like many I've been inspired by the West Marches campaign on Ars Ludi, but I've never done one before. My gaming experience starts well...

    OSR Games Sentinels of Echo City now in PDF

    Sentinels of Echo City is my love letter to 1984. It is the game that answers the question, “what if the designers of FASERIP used the B/X system instead?”. It is the game that I wish I could get into a time machine and take to myself when I was 13 years old. It’s an old-school superhero game...

    Give me your best OSR resources, hints and tips

    I'm DMing my first game of ACKS tomorrow, leading a merry band of randomly generated adventurers to doom or glory in the Caves of Chaos.

    Old School vs. New School

    I've been reading a number of threads that refer to certain games as Old School. I'm uncertain what the dividing line is or what the criteria is for determining if something is Old School or (apparently?) New School. I'm interested in leaning what your definition of Old School is, and I'm very...

    Playing Without Maps Is Old School?

    This is something that has been bugging me for a while. For the most part, whenever I play an RPG, the game is always played mind's eye theatre style... Okay, very poor choice of words, but basically we used our imaginations. I'm a guy who just got into tabletop RPGs three years ago, and...

    We Made Up Some Shit We Thought Would Be Fun: A "Tank" was NOT somebody in heavy armor...

    From my upcoming book, of course: UNSTATED ASSUMPTIONS – D&D AND TRACTICS Another one of the games we played a lot was TRACICS, a WW2 miniatures wargame. Wargamers being wargamers, WW2 wargames means tanks. And much like CHAINMAIL influenced D&D and how we played it, TRACTICS also...
