New OSR Products at DTRPG — March 23rd, 2020

Remembered to put a title, this time!

The biggest release of the week, and most definitely the year, is the massive dungeon The Halls of Arden Vul, published by Expeditious Retreat Press. Personally, I think they left money on the table by not doing a Kickstarter and also seems odd they didn't publish it as multiple books. But eh, that's just me.

Adventures & Settings

Castle of Septor -  This is the first adventure from Gamer's Group Publication and is a decent sized adventure for 4th to 12th level characters. Quite a range. $4.99 and 48 pages.

Burning of Novikov -  Sci-Fi adventure for Stars Without Number. 16 pages, $2.99

Dangerous Places Bundle -  Bundle of Spes Magna Games's 3 adventures. $2.50 and I dunno how many pages, but probably not too many.  I seem to have bought one of them and have no memory of it.

Fen Orc Almanac 2020 - This is six new adventures (or scenarios) including some pretty unusual ones. Seems suited for con games.  64 pages and PWYW (suggested $3)

Santa Muerte Guide -  Lost Boys inspired setting for Dark Places and Demagogues, the OSR Stranger Things style game. 120 pages, $9.99

SM04 Gazetteer of the Land of Young - From Dunromin University press comes this setting book for their game world. 91 pages, and PWYW (suggested $4.95)

The Halls of Arden Vul Complete - I can't do it justice. It's huge. More a gigadungeon than mega. 1120 pages and $109.  While that's pretty steep for a PDF, at the same time, their Advanced Adventures are close to a $1 a page in some cases

The Lonely Coast 2020 (OSR) -  From Raging Swan comes this collection of small villages.  90 pages, $11.95

The Towers of Lyska Lasforn - This is from Geoffrey Dale, the Inferno module guy, so while old school, uses his nigh on incomprehensible game stats. 95 pages, $3.80


Creature Feature Quarterly Vol 1 (OSE) -  16 new monsters statted and illustrated by Jeremy Hart for Old School Essentials and B/X, including paper miniatures and VTT tokens. 65 pages, $4.50

Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy: Player's Rules Tome -  Somehow a B/X clone needs 8000 different books. This is another one of them. With rules for characters up to 14 and spells up to 6th level. 144 pages, $9.99

The Craft of the Wise: The Pagan Witch Tradition -  For B/X and OSE. 66 pages, $2.99


Friday Enhanced Map 3-20-20 - Looks like a sea coast dungeon. $2

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Kinda a slow week. I wonder if the forced isolation will bring forth more products in the near future.

Adventures & Settings

Reading at River's End (S&W) -  Mid to high level adventure for S&W. 28 pages, $10 (Has the S&W tax despite not being from Frog God, but apparently the guy from Pacesetter Games & Simulations. Or his son, maybe)

Temple of Mercy (B/X) - 3rd level adventure for B/X (hope you guessed that last part). 24 pages, $5

The Isle of Dragons - Regional sourcebook for Odysseys & Overlords.  10 pages, $1.25

Thicc as Thieves - Comedy mini adventure. 2 pages, PWYW


Blueholme Explorer Encounters -  Not sure what to make of this to be honest, is it random tables? Lair like encounters? Just advice? Adventure seeds? Carmel and nougat?  38 pages, $2.99

Chaos Dice: 4 Supplements for 5e and AD&D -  I guess you can actually refer to things as AD&D, since I believe they let the trademark for that lapse ages ago. PWYW


Friday Enhanced Map 3-13-20 -  This is pretty neat. Looks like a seaside temple. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — March 9th, 2020

Woops, missed two weeks. First week I just completely forgot. For some reason I want to write a Lovecraftian OSR adventure, so, I've been working on a map of Arkham in my spare time. And despite being a crude and not that detailed a map, it's time consuming because I don't know what I'm doing. It is legible, though.

Then last week, I hurt my right shoulder. It gets progressively worse as the day goes by, to the point where by the end of the day, I can't even lift my arm halfway.

Adventures & Settings

Abandoned Glacial Rift of somone or other -  S&W adventure from Night Owl Workshop (hey, don't they have their own games to make adventures for?). $3 and 24 pages, including paper miniatures

Hexed Places - Pass of Horns -  My god, it's full of clowns. Or not. It's a hex crawl from PBE Games. 15 pages, $2.69

Keep of the Rawhide Gang - Now I have that theme song stuck in my head. But this is a hex crawl adventure/location for Old School Essentials.  47 pages, $3.95

Madrea - Another region for the Odysseys & Overlords setting.  13 pages, $1.95

SG2 Seer's Rescue -  Mid to high level adventure for OSRIC from Starry Knight. 32 pages, $6.50

The Forgotten Temple -  Mid to high level adventure for Odysseys & Overlords. 14 pages, $1.95

The Odyssey Begins - Collection of 10 previous O&O adventures (but not including the above).  112 pages and $9.95

Old School Essentials - Classic Fantasy Rogues Gallery 1


Friday Enhanced Map 3-6-20 -  If you squint, it sort of looks like the Eye of Thoth hieroglyph. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — February 17th, 2020

Well, this was a busy week, though most of it seems to have come from three people/companies and most of it unfortunately for S&W. It's really impressive though how it's supported by fans while its treated as an afterthought and cash in by its own company/creator.

Feast of the Gobbler -  "S&W" adventure from FGG. 26 pages, $8

Four Views of Grizzly Eye Cave -  Site based S&W module, set within a small cavern. 14 pages, PWYW.

Guimond's Tower and the Lair of the Druid-Lich - A bad druid mutates forest adventure for S&W. 5 pages, PWYW

Mystery at Ravenrock - "S&W" adventure from FGG. 24 pages, $8

The Banshee's Tower - Short S&W adventure. 6 pages, PWYW

The Horror out of Hagsjaw - "S&W" adventure from FGG. 22 pages, $8

The Ruined Land of Shaymar -  Another region of the Odysseys & Overlords setting, one that has apparently been overrun by giant rats. $1.25, 10 pages

The Savage Caves - Despite the name, sounds like more like a ruined temple complex of a knightly order.  5 pages, PWYW


Aliens for RPG's -  For SWN and other OSR based space games. 12 pages, $2.86

The Hexer -  This is a witcher style class for S&W White Box. 10 pages, $2

The Shaman: an OSR Class -  Sadly, does not include a summons for a dancing, oiled up Jason Statham but it sorta like a druid. PWYW and a preview for the Silver Swords zine below.


Black Pudding #6 - Another issue of J.V. West's truly remarkable 'zine, which is one of the best things in the OSR. PWYW and 28 pages.

Friday Enhanced Map 2-14-20 - Another nice looking dungeon map from Tim Hartin. $2

Silver Swords Vol 1, No 2 - Generic sounding zine but with a Shaman class for OSR games. 40 pages, $3

New OSR Products at DTRPG — February 10th, 2020

Surprisingly busy week.

Adventures & Settings

Chandra's Haven -  Setting for Odysseys & Overlords. 10 pages, $1.25

For the Love of Valentine - Holiday cash in from Cash Grab Frog God Games for S&W. Well, either PF or 5e and converted badly to S&W.. $10, 30 pages.

Goblin BanditCamp/More Goblin Bandit Camp/ -  Like Kobold ambush, but a goblin bandit camp. And MORE goblin bandit camp. 9 pages, $2

Kobold Ambush -  Not even a module, just a setup of a Kobold ambush. 2 pages, PWYW

No Place Reich Home -  An adventure set in WW2 era England where it has been occupied by Germany and the players must rescue Excalibur.  42 pages, $2.99

Riders of the Black Sage -  A sandbox adventure set in an alternate history Arizona for an RPG I've never heard of, but apparently includes OSR stats. 36 pages, $2.99

Temple of the Sun -  Originally a 1e adventure written for a 2004 Con, it's been "updated" to OSRIC and gah, C&C.  $6.99 and 64 pages

The Chalice of Blood -  Adventure for Odysseys & Overlords, for 5th to 6th level characters.  From Megan Irving, probably the best author for that line.  $1.95, 12 pages


A Guide to Thieves' Guilds -  A system for running thieves guilds. 43 pages, $4.95. The author released a guide to domain building that was pretty decent, so this is maybe worth a look.

The Hero's Journey: Second Edition - The original was basically Tolkien-esque house rules for S&W White Box, this claims to have deeper changes. $14.95, 220 pages.
