New OSR products at DTRPG — June 4th, 2020

Yeah, missed the last couple weeks.  Already exhausting, work has been make much more difficult by having to wear a mask for the whole shift. And then the last week, having to barricade the store...

Don't seem to have missed too much, and that guy is still spamming the DTRPG store with generic heraldry images

5 Days Left in the Survive This! Fantasy Kickstarter

Although I don't think I ever got around to reviewing it, I am a fan of the Dark Places & Demogorgons game, basically a OSR based Strange Things inspired game of kids investigating weird stuff in the 1980s.  It's remarkably ugly in terms of presentation (DIY-ish), but it's well designed, taking things from basically all editions of D&D, not just the all too common house rules for S&W that we see.

Anyway, there's a fantasy version of the game on Kickstarter.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — May 4th, 2020

I've missed the last couple weeks because my internet died. I live in a rural area and Hughes Net is my only choice.  I dunno what happened exactly, happened after a storm, so I dunno if it was lightning (nothing else was affected) but it went kaput.

So I tried using my phone, but the computer I do this from doesn't have a wifi adapter, so I have to either use ethernet or a usb tether. But my phone's usb port was bad and wouldn't connect (and barely charge)

But I have a new phone now. Worked so well I was going to buy another one and use that for internet, but somehow my carrier (Visible) is sold out of all phones except the super expensive ones.


Adventures & Settings


Hex 14.43 - Eyrie of the Eaglefolk -  Hex crawl. 20 pages, $2.95

The Folio 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 -  Someone must buy these, but not me. But more dual stat adventures that are very railroady. $4.19 each

Incursion from Outer Space -  It's a point crawl, which is something that completely baffles me.  $3, 24 pages.

The Tomb of Raven Darkmore - Dungeon of a deceased grandmaster assassin. PWYW (suggested $3) and 30 pages

Warhorse Adventures - All my paladins died before 4th level, but for those that didn't comes this set of adventures for paladins to find their special mount. 40 pages, $6.95

Expanded 20 Level Core Four Classes -  There was a proposed companion book for B/X that never happened, instead they started over with BECMI. But what if there was? 25 pages, $2

Gillmen -  New racial character class for B/X. Not clear if it's a deep one style thing or creature from the black lagoon type. $1 and 5 pages.

The Warlock - From the witch guy for OSE.  72 pages, $2.99

Misc


SCA The Best of Cavalier Attitude 2 - Is there really a point in a best of digital magazine? It made sense for Dragon because they wanted to reprint articles that people wanted. 60 pages, $7.50

New OSR Products at DTRPG — April 13th, 2020

Was too tired to do it last week. Doesn't help that someone uploaded 100s of heraldry images that anyone with a pulse could make. No lions or griffons or penguins rampant, just simple colors and shapes that would take someone like me (not terrible skilled) about 5 minutes to make.

Steve Jackson Games has uploaded a bunch of Car Wars stuff. My friends probably played more of that than AD&D, or at least we moved into it because we found cars very interesting.


Adventures & Sourcebooks


City of Solstice: Evil Streets -   From Charles Rice comes this urban fantasy setting for 1e. As near as I can tell from the preview product, the PCs are sort of vigilantes in a Thieves World (Sanctuary) grim city. 177 pages, $15

S2 Night Crystal Pass - Creation's Edge Games is back with his 36th (!) adventure, this one for levels 2-4. 21 pages, $1.50

The Misty Isles - New reprint of the classic Wee Warriors module. 48 pages, $4.95

The Reef Tavern - Location. 6 pages, PWYW (suggested 50 cents) 

Village Backdrop: Macrimei 2.0 (OSR Edition) -  Raging Swam finally started making OSR versions of their Village backdrop series, this one, some sort of desert themed. 12 pages, $3.45

Rules


CAL2a Conversion Guide to Caldwen for Vintage Roleplaying - Conversion book for Bruce Heard's latest Calidar products for Labyrinth Lord. 28 pages, $2.95
