Thinking About Restarting the OSR for the Lapsed Gamer Series of Posts

Last year I was working on a series of posts called OSR for the Lapsed Gamer. That got derailed back in December.

I'm thinking of picking it up from where it left, which is covering the free OSR ruleset options:

Delving Deeper

LotFP Weird Fantasy

Dark Dungeons

Labyrinth Lord

Swords & Wizardry

Basic Fantasy RPG


Those are the systems already covered. I'll try and cover the rest of the free OSR RPGs before moving on to the ones that have a cost.

So, is there interest in me picking this back up? Are there systems you'd want to see covered sooner that later? I'm probably going to lose the timeline and just post as it comes to me. I'm guessing a post or two in these series a week. Probably the most I can do with the new work hours.


  1. Yes, although I pretty much have my choice nailed down.

  2. Definitely interested! Bring it on!

  3. Sure. I'd like to hear what sets various games apart from each other. There must be some justification for the existence of so many clones, I hope.

  4. Sure, go for it. Like to see Mazes and Perils get the Tavern Treatment.

  5. Fantastic Heroes and Witchery deserves a review. I've enjoyed your other posts so far. Thanks!!!

  6. I'd like to see comparisons between them all.
