Kickstarter - BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules

I'm a sucker for OSR rulesets. There is just something special about them. Eh, what can I say? A grognard am I ;)

The BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules (does it really need a "TM" to make it official?) is being Kickstarted and its looking good. The rules are written and the funding will go for art.

You can download the BLUEHOLME Prentice Rules at RPGNow priced at PWYW. It covers levels 1 to 3. The Journeymanne Rules cover through level 20.

10 bucks gets you the Journeymanne rules PDF, 15 PDF plus voucher at RPGNow for at cost softcover and 26 bucks gets you a hardcover voucher instead.

If you are an OSR completist, you know you need this ;)
BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules
Back in the beginning of 2013, Dreamscape Design launched a little retroclone intended to faithfully model the "Holmes" edition of the worlds best-known role-playing game. The BLUEHOLME™ Prentice Rules, like the original Holmes Basic book, only covered character levels 1 through 3.
The stand-alone BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules go much further than that.
-Character levels 1 through 20
-Over 230 spells for clerics and magic-users
-Over 120 creatures, including may sub-types
-Over 250 magic items
-Rules for combining character classes
-Rules for playing any species in the creature chapter
-Rules for adventuring in the Wilderness and in the Realm
-115 pages in 8.5" x 11" format
The Journeymanne Rules are more just than an accurate rendition of "Holmes" edition game-play, they draw from a wide range of sources to more closely model the eclectic and unique approach to the game promoted by Dr J. Eric Holmes himself. In BLUEHOLME™, anything goes - but the dice never lie!
He, just norice. No "TM on the cover. What's up with that? ;P


  1. This Kickstarter is funding Russ Nicholson, myself and others to do the art.

  2. It totally needs that ™ everywhere for added authenticity! But it offended my sense of symmetry on the cover, so I got rid of it. :P

  3. We've just bust Stretch Goal #5, which is James V West's awesome illustrated character sheets. Next up it's the Referee Repository (also illustrated, because, hey, it's an art Kickstarter) of hand, nay, ready reference sheets for the busy referee.
