RPGNow has put a slew of games on sale at 50% off for the next week, but there are few choices that are solidly OSR pics (and solid pics whether one is looking solely for OSR or not). Here's what I found:
Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea is a no brainer at 5 bucks. A finer choice for Swords & Sorcery in the OSR will not be found. If all you can spend is 5 bucks, spend it here. Tell +Jeff Talanian that The Tavern sent you ;)
Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG is the game that brought back the magic of
my first D&D session for me. It's close enough to feel like the game you love and different enough to be that magical new experience. Lot's of ideas to borrow and steal for your more "normal" OSR styled game (I've converted "Luck" for use in my Swords & Wizardry game).
Liberation of the Demon Slayer is a nice little dungeon crawl compatible with just about every OSR game. I ignore the section of house rules that are included, as I have my own personal set and mixing the two might be combustible. Others might find use for them. The dungeon itself looks like fun, but I've yet to try it in game.
There are some other, non-OSR gems on sale that I will highlight in a later post.

I have a print copy of the DCC rules, but I'm going to have to pick up Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea. I've not looked at it but I know it's been talked about a lot recently. Also, Liberation of the Demon Slayer looks interesting...ReplyDelete
Good thing Friday is payday.

Lol what? What about Crypts & Things? AS&SH is about clerics, wizards in pointy hats. VERY Conan-like...
Though subclass system looks sleek, but for generic fantasy.ReplyDelete
