New Release - BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules (because this Holme's goes to 20 ;)

BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules - I'll take your Basic and raise you to a complete game! heh

I backed the Kickstarter for the BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules and I'm excited to see the PDF go live. The PDF is currently on sale for $9.99
NOTE: This is an early release of the game. There are some pieces of interior art which are not yet ready. Keep an eye out for updates which will include this missing art. 
The BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules are a table top fantasy roleplaying game which emulates the game play of the original basic rule book, popularly known as the Holmes Edition or simply the Blue Book. Unlike those basic rules, however, this book allows for characters of 1st to 20th levels, and include everything the referee could possibly need to create and run a campaign in the Underworld, the Wilderness, or the Realm: monsters, magic, treasure, and … well, what more do you need? BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules are fully compatible with the BLUEHOLME™ Prentice Rules (priced at PWYW so no point not to look) and can be used with most old-school adventure modules.
Purchases made via The Tavern's affiliate links put 5% of the sale price to support The Tavern. Thank you :)


  1. You should all know Vile and his passion for Holmes D&D. He continues to release a product line that extends, perfects, and lovingly remembers the version of D&D that serves as the bridge between 0E, 1E, CHAINMAIL and B/X.

    J. Eric Holmes was the first of us into the OSR, and largely he got it right the first time. You could do much worse than to buy this game and see how things might have been.

  2. 8 of the pieces of art in it are mine- I was done on schedule.

    1. Hey, go easy on Brad! ;-)

      He had to pick up a lot of extra pieces because I couldn't get Jean-Francois Beaulieu on board (too busy).

  3. After reading the book about Holmes, I really want to see the rules they were using. Unfortunately, this isn't it. I did back it though, mainly for the art.

  4. Surely, this is the last beating of the OSR retroclone dead horse.

  5. Anyone know where the PoD will be? RPGNow or elsewhere? I'd like to have this in SC...

  6. The art for the Bugbear was worth the price of supporting at the PDF level!

  7. The PoD will be through Lulu at the end of the year. I might add a OneBookShelf option later, but personally I prefer Lulu.
