Seven of the Ten Bestselling Titles on RPGNow are OSR Titles

Wow. Look at the above screenshot.

#1 - Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea

#2 - The Forbidden Caverns of Archaia

#3 - White Star: Galaxy Edition

#5 - Villains & Vigilantes 3.0 Mighty Protectors

#8 - B/X Essentials: Core Rules

#9 - BLUEHOLME: Journeyman Rules

#10- Wormskin Issue #7

7 out of 10 of the current best sellers at RPGNow are OSR / Old School releases. Interesting.

One DriveThruRPG? 1 out of 10.

Yep, that's an affiliate link right above this. 5% of all sales go to support The Tavern. Thank you in advance.


  1. It is truly a wonderful time to be alive.

  2. Nice to see Necrotic Gnome with two spots. We all have our favourites, they, New Big Dragon and LotFP are among mine. I also heartily endorse Sine Nomine, but Kevin is so superlative that it's hardly worth mentioning.

  3. Michael Thomas! BLUEHOLME! We can remember back to the days when he put out a couple of page PDF with rules going 4-9 just for fun. And look at him now! It shows what passion and patience can accomplish.

  4. There must be some mistake. No one buys OSR stuff!

  5. I don't understand something; are DTRPG and RPGNOW the same company? My account works for both; what's the deal with the two different websites?

  6. The things retired grognards spend their pension on. ;)

  7. Okay, I found the answer; the merged in 2007, DTRPG is more big publisher (historically) and RPGNOW is more indie (historically).

  8. Awesome. I have Art in #1 and #9.... though i cannot claim responsibilty for their heavy sales!

  9. Traveller not old school enough?
