Kickstarter - Tales From the Sorcerer Under the Mountain (OSR / 5e)

"A rulebook/adventure for OSR/5th editions inspired by 80s British Fantasy Roleplaying Games."

A few quick notes: I really enjoy everything Newt / D101 Games has put out. Be it Crypts & Things (his S&W Swords & Sorcery hack), Openquest and all of the related adventures. Simply immensely playable. Newt's Kickstarters are pretty much on point each time and his track record is quite good.

Which should make it obvious that I'm backing the Tales From the Sorcerer Under the Mountain Kickstarter ;) Seriously, I can't get my fill of Swords & Wizardry hacks, and Newt has done it well in the past.

There are two books you can back in this Kickstarter:
Tales from the Sorcerer Under the Mountain, an A5 hardback OSR rule book, which as well as a concise version of the Swords & Wizardry rules, with a chapter which holds the House Rules I use in my games, and contains the adventure with OSR stats. Overall it weighs in about 230 pages, with black and white art throughout, cover by Jon Hodgson.
as well as:
The Sorcerer Under the Mountain, 5th Edition Adventure module in 8″ by 11″ format, black and white art throughout. 
The 5e adventure is $10 for the Print plus PDF. Shipping extra.

The OSR book in at cost POD plus PDF is 12.27 (as of right now ;)  Obviously, you pay for the cost of the printing and shipping after the Kickstarter funds.


  1. BUT = you can also back for £1 and get access to the D101 games back catalogue to snap up Openquest, C&T Monkey etc for super cheap prices !!!

    1. Its a Crazy Summer Sale here at D101 Games! (without getting dragged round the shops in the baking heat by yer mum :) )

  2. Too bad there is not an OSR option for the adventure module. :(

    1. Its in the book :) Sorry for the confusion.

      If you want to see the complete contents, there's a 22 page preview https://d101games.com/files/2019/08/TSuM-ks-preview.pdf

  3. The adventure comes in the OSR rulebook in OSR flavor.

  4. Thanks Erik for the mention!

    "Simply immensely playable." that's the highest praise and what I aim for each time :)
