New OSR Products at DTRPG — November 26th, 2020

This is the first Thanksgiving in years that I have not worked. Kinda strange.


A Misplaced Prince -  Featuring "piranhakeets", which I think are from the Flintstones. $1

Dread Swamp of the Banshee - Maximum Mayhem Dungeon #7, this seems less gonzo and lower level than previous entries, for 1E/OSRIC levels 4 to 8. 48 pages, $10

SOS1 The Old School -  Looks like Starry Knight is back doing OSR adventures after flirting with 5e. This is for 1E/OSRIC levels 4 to 6, and he's keeping his usual high (but not Frog God insanely high) prices at $4.99 for 22 pages.

The Temple of Bathymrala - Another detailed hex crawl/site based adventure in the ongoing series from Third Kingdom Games. At this point I have to think that Todd Lebeck has taken over the title of Hex Crawl King from John Stater.  39 pages, $3.96


 Aquilae: Bestiary of the Realm Volume 2 -  This is the second volume of all the Pathfinder monsters converted to OSR. The first and a bundle of the two volumes were available last time. 839 pages, $25

Elf OSR Class - Really for White Box. $1

OSR Social Status System - While I approve of Gary Gygax changing his mind about magical elfin chainmail, and raising level limits for demihumans (especially half-elves), I disagree his inclusion of social status in UA, However, I guess some people like it. 8 pages, $1


Engines & Empires Character Sheets -  For the excellent Steampunk-ish OSR game, Free

Friday Enhanced Map 11-20-20 - Connects to the previous 5 weeks maps for a super big level. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — November 12th, 2020

 It's been a while, but I had a pretty good reason...I got COVID.  Working retail, it was pretty much inevitable (we had an outbreak at the store, about a dozen people), but I am glad I got it when I did. I was only really sick for a week, 4 days of being really sick, 3 days of sorta sick.

Also I had a hard drive crash (or die). I didn't lose any of my writing, but did lose all the maps and art I had collected. I'm not sure which is worse, having no backup or having a backup that you can't find (It was on a tiny USB stick).


The Book of Regency -  I did not really like 2E, but I did like the Birthright setting, which let players rules countries. This was never released as a print product, but as a free one when the line was killed and includes more rules and such for rulers.  Amazingly the description on the page is shorter than the offensive content disclaimer...(and it's from the late 90s, so it can't be that offensive, can it?)

Wrath of the Immortals - For some reason, this is free. It's the revised Immortal rules for BECMI and contains a campaign adventure that kinda illustrates that the author didn't play by the BECMI rules. 234 pages.


Hall of the Rainbow Mage -  Pretty sure this vaguely described adventure from Frog God was originally a 3e adventure from the latter days of Necromancer Games. 58 pages,  $12.50

Thief King's Vault -  $10 for a 20 page adventure might make you wonder just how the real thief king (Frog God) is...but I don't think this is a 3E conversion, at least.

The Beloved Underbelly - Low level adventure with artsy illustrations. $5, 24 pages.

 The Grey Citadel -  This was one of my favorites from Necromancer back in the 3e era, now updated to S&W. Not really a sandbox, more a urban detective plot. 100 pages, $19


Aquilae: Bestiary of the Realm: The Bookshelf -  This is actually two books, apparently every monster published for Pathfinder (aka 3.75) converted to OSR format. I did this with my Found Folio, but only did about 200 monsters that I liked the most. So I'm impressed with this. 1660 pages and $50

(If Frog God had done this, it would have been almost a $1000)

Aqualie: Bestiary of the Realm Volume One - Just the first book of above. $25 and 839 pages

Necromancer Class -  From James Mishler comes this new class for LL (and B/X). Seems like it also branches out into demonology.  $1.25, 15 pages

Starship Construction Manual for S&S 2e (2020 Update) - Pretty much what the title says. $5 and 44 pages.


Friday Enhanced Map 11-06-20 - Part of a multi-page cavern. $2

Pit Zine Issue #1 - New zine. 41 pages, PWYW

New OSR Products at DTRPG — October 22nd, 2020

 One of the things I like about fall is that there is always one more "Last Day of Summer" where you have nice warm temperatures and it's nice out. There will be a week or so of cold weather, than 1-2 days of nice warm weather. 

Until there is no more and it's just cold weather.  But it's a nice way to ease into winter.

Tonight was (probably) the last day of Summer. 85 and even now, still 70 outside. But then it comes crashing down tomorrow when the front comes through.

Adventures & Settings


First Level Dungeons -  This seems to be a collection of 12 small dungeons in one product, including one written by Steve Kenson, who started off with Shadowrun fan material on GEnie back in the day, and turned pro. 

$4.99 and not sure how many pages, but it's huge, almost 200 megabytes. 

The Crypts of the Aimascurs - Another hex crawl/site based adventure from Third Kingdom Games. $3.95 and 29 pages


Octhorrorfest! -  Various new horror (sorta) themed stuff for Old School Adventures (B/X) including three new classes. 49 pages and $6  (and as an aside, why is the "company" name Appendix N Entertainment, when it's for B/X which had its own inspiration section, not Appendix N?


Dungeons in Blue - Just Geomorphs 31 32 and 33 - $3.49 each. I was never a fan of geomorphs, dungeons should make sense.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — October 15th, 2020

 The odd thing about the "new" Blogger interface is that it's not obvious where text goes. The boxes for text are the same color as the rest of the page and there's like no border or anything. Every time I sit down to do this I am bewildered for a minute.

Adventures & Settings

 In the Shadow of the City-God -  From the Hungarian d20 Society (aka Gabor Lux's group) comes this weird fantasy module for 3rd-4th level characters. 32 pages and $6

Trail of the Sea Demon - 3 loosely connected scenarios, this time actually bey Gabor Lux). 32 pages, $6




Friday Enhanced Map 10-9-20 - Looks a bit like a magical glyph. $2

Gregorius Notes on the Weird OSR Fantasy 2019 - Some guys blog, now in PDF form.  $2.50, 22 pages.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — October 8th, 2020

Normally October is my favorite month, because of Halloween, but instead we seem to be in the second month of Christmas season (the first being July)


Adventures & Settings

 None, alas


BaF - The Muse -  Alright! A new character class (been a while), this one for B/X. $1 and 8 pages.

 D2 0 Go -  Says its inspired by older versions of D&D, but it's apparently meant for asynchronous play (Like online, I guess). 247 pages so probably not rules light and $9.50

Eat, Drink, Maybe Die: Fantasy Consumables for OSR Games  - I would dismiss this sort of thing, but it's from Unbalanced Die Games, a very credible and competent publisher. 103 pages and $3.50

SM3 Pumpkin Man for OSR -  These were actually pretty disturbing in the Ogre Battle series of video games. 8 pages and $1.75

 The Bone Age - Not sure how OSR or serious this is, but it's a game of playing cavemen in a world being invaded by aliens. 90 pages, $10


Player Journal for OSRIC (and others) - Character sheets, graph paper, hexes, and more. $1 and 32 pages.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — October 1st, 2020

Well, one bit of good news in 2020, the XFL is coming back.

Also apparently, Jeremy Hart, one of my favorite old school style artists (aside from the same first name bias, he's got a nice creepy style) has an Indie Go Go for a monster product. Not too successful, I don't think IGG gets much traffic.

Adventures & Settings

Ashdown: Sol & Xoth Sectors for Starships & Spacemen 2e - Updated version of a 2018 product. $4, 54 pages

Belly of the Beast - From JG author Geof Dale comes this short adventure. 14 pages, $1.15

Hex 07.36 - Slow Waters -  A hex crawl in a swamp full of "froglings", including two race as classes for them and a dungeon. $3.95, 27 pages

RPPP Medieval-Authentic(tm) City Guide: Exeter - 26 pagse (not a very large city, I guess) and $2.99

SO19 Caverns of Calamity: Goblin's Rage - This is possibly a humorous module, as the PCs are apparently hired by a gnomish group called G.A.R.I. to retriever a strange mushroom. Low level. 30 pages, $6.50

What Remains of Richter Krankenhaus - This is a dungeon from post WW1 Germany, an asylum run by a crazy doctor. 60 pages, and $3.99, but the whole adventure is available in the full size preview (something I do)


Campaign Codex 1: Classic Foes (OSR Edition) - Tables for customizing your bandits, kobolds, hobgoblins, and etc. 14 pages, $4.45

Campaign Codex 2: Lesser Undead (OSR Edition) - Like above, only for zombies, wights, ghouls, skeletons, and ghasts. 14 pages, $4.45

DMP1: Mission Generator -  Random tables, I guess. 3 pages and PWYW

Kobolds as a OSR Player Character Race - A little pricey, but this seems fairly comprehensive. Not sure if it's for race and class games (which is overkill, Idi Snitman didn't need special rules) or race as class style games/ $1.50 and 5 pages.

Lizardfolk as a OSR Player Character Race -  As above, but for lizardmen, presumably. $1.50

Operation Solo Endeavor - Solo rules for Operation White Box, the WW2 OSR game.  $4.95 and 43 pages



Friday Enhanced Map 9-25-2020 - Somewhat lopsided dungeon map. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — Sept 17th, 2020

 I haven't been using the computer I do this on, because as I think I mentioned, I no longer have internet and have to tether my phone (which doesn't work well, as this computer is in my bedroom where I get 1 bar) and the mousepad is covered in dust. Yikes.

 Doesn't look like I've missed all that much.

Adventures & Sourcebooks

Hexed Places - Dima's Ascent -  Another hex crawl from PBE Games. This seems to be a very remote wilderness. 14 pages and $2.69

 Hunters in Death - A new module from long time OSR guy Tim Shorts.  Seems like a sandbox adventure set in a forest. $5 and 32 pages, with original art.

The Spire in the Hills - This seems to be an OSR adaptation of an adventure for a system I am unfamiliar with, of which there3 are several others, seemingly in an Asian style setting. It seems to be more about a wizard's tower now abandoned. $1 and 33 pages..



Dark Horros & Hidden Places -  Looks like another attempt at an OSR Stranger Things style game, although this seems simpler than Dark Places & Demogorogns. 64 pages, $3.95


Mythic World of Oldskull - Oldskull Warriors -  I honestly am not sure if these products are meant to be a parody or not. But this seems to be versions of the Fighter, Ranger, Barbarian, and a take on EGG's Hunter (which was published in a magazine after he left TSR). 141 pages, $4.99



Friday Enhanced Map 9-11-20 - A 3 level dungeon on one page. $2
