Are There Any OSR Quickstarts Besides the Two Swords & Wizardry Ones?

I can only think of two OSR Quickstarts: Frog God's Hall of Bones for this years Free RPG Day and the classic Swords & Wizardry Quickstart.

Am I missing any?

How would you put together an OSR Quickstart (system is fairly irrelevant to this question)?


  1. The Spellcraft & Swordplay Basic Rules (available at DriveThruRPG and RPGNow) are free and complete for levels 1-3.

  2. The Tomb of Sigyfel for Labyrinth Lord.

    Sue used this when she first tried her hand at running a game. I was amazed how she took such a simple "quick start" module and made it into one of my favorite gaming memories today.

  3. Depending on your definition, Castles & Crusades quick start rules are available here: http://www.trolllord.com/cnc/ccqs.html

  4. The brazilian OSR game, Old Dragon, have a free "Fast Play" version, with rules up to level 5.
