Classic TSR - Kara-Tur: The Eastern Realms - PDF Release
I'm really enjoying the releases of classic TSR products at OBS recently. While I have many of the releases from my younger days of gaming, there are some I missed. Kara-Tur: The Eastern Realms is one that I missed.
It was missed because my gaming group at the time just couldn't get into the Oriental Adventures rulebook. Although we embraced non-weapon proficiencies, wrapping classic dungeon adventuring (which was all we knew at the time) in Eastern trappings wasn't a good fit for us.
So now I am looking at the Kara-Tur: The Eastern Realms setting some 28 years later and wondering if I would run it now. Well, certainly not using OA as is, I'd have to convert to Swords & Wizardry first. But it might not be a bad conversion at all.
Heck, for 5 bucks it's virtually a no brainer.
