Labrinth Lord was my initial introduction to the "real" OSR. Those art-free PDFs were eye-opening as to what one could find in the modern market that emulated the RPGs I cut my teeth on.
For years Labyrinth Lord was the OSR system of choice, not just the original rules but the Advanced Labyrinth Lord rules, which did an effective job emulating the AD&D rules while using the B/X / LL chassis.
Today's Deal of the Day, which is on sale until tomorrow morning, Jan 30th, 2022 is Advanced Labyrinth Lord (Dragon Cover) in PDF. Normally 14.99, it is currently on sale for 8.99.
Labyrinth Lord doesn't waste precious game time.
We're older now. It's hard enough setting aside time to game.
Then you have to wrangle all your players together at the same time.
The last thing you want is your hard-fought game time wasted.
Combats in Labyrinth Lord are resolved quickly. Running adventures isn't bogged down with bloated monster stats and overcomplicated combats.
Get right into the fun stuff, squeezing the most adventure out of your time.
Play the game on your own terms. Most of us started out with the basic game, working in advanced elements without even realizing basic and advanced were supposed to be two different games. We all might have created our own Frankenstein's monster of rules in slightly different ways, but Labyrinth Lord lets you play the game the way you want it.
If you want to keep basic classes, you can, and play them right along with the advanced classes. Or just use the advanced options. Pick and choose what you want to place in your game on your own terms.
Play the game like you remember it. Feel the adventure like you remember it.
That's why I want to share Labyrinth Lord with you.
COMPLETE AT LAST!
Basic and Advanced
Finally the basic and advanced game rules are in one volume!
