The Tavern Chat Podcast - Episode 49 - The Beginning of the OSR - A Look Back


Thanks to this post at the Multiverse blog: http://multiverse.world/blog/2018/07/02/what-is-the-osr-old-school-revival/ (well worth the reading( I've been inspired to do a series of podcast episodes covering various OSR ruleset. In the first episode of the series, I look at the beginning of the OSR.
The first in what will become an (ir)regular series of episodes. Hackmaster 4e to Castles & Crusades to OSRIC to Labyrinth Lord and finally to Swords & Wizardry, its the birth of the OSR.

  1. Nice, i always got the feeling i was alone in crediting Hackmaster 4e for (a rebirth of something that became) OSR.

    Does anyone else remember another notable point-the "Lunchtime Dungeon Crawl" articles from the old Wizard website? In the middle of 3e that was the first time i saw someone consciously emulate an OSR type game.
