Into the Odd Character Sheets

Lately I've been pretty obsessed with Into the Odd by Chris McDowall.

OSR Guide For The Perplexed - A Questionnaire!

It's Friday and I've had a long and hard week at work. About halfway through a hastily constructed Manhattan, I thought, "What better time to write a poorly conceived post on my blog!" Having just joined MeWe as part of the crazy Google+ Exodus, I was clicking around and saw some replies to this post. Below is my sad little attempt.

1. One article or blog entry that exemplifies the best of the Old School Renaissance for me:
Quick Primer for Old School Gaming (not an original answer but it sums a lot of stuff up for me)

2. My favorite piece of OSR wisdom/advice/snark:
From Moldvay Basic "While it is not possible to cover everything that might happen in a game, the ideas here give a solid framework to build on." Just enough rules to get you going. That's my jam.

3. Best OSR module/supplement:
Sailors on the Starless Sea

4. My favorite house rule (by someone else):
I really love Shields Shall Be Splintered

5. How I found out about the OSR:
James Wall's videos …

Mayhem at the Meadery!

I've written a short adventure for Umerican Survival Guide! A brief summary and a link to the pdf is below...

Weapon Details: Swords & Daggers

Something dawned on my recently.  When my players find a weapon, I'd like to be able to give them a better description than "you find a sword."

Signs & Portents

Your PCs have begun their march down the King's Road.  They're headed for certain doom and they are well-aware that not all of them will return.  Why not dial up the tension a bit with the addition of a dread omen or two?


The fantasy rpg genre is rife with potions - they are often a blase affair with a simple effect (and a description of their color as an afterthought).  In today's workshop, I try to make things a bit more interesting.

First Post!

Here I will be posting ideas, adventures, monsters, maps, and anything related to Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG and the OSR in general.  This is my first post so it's mostly just a test.
