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..

 

Rules

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

 

Misc 

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

New OSR Products at DTRPG — September 3rd 2020

Missed the last couple weeks due to allergies (this time of the year is the worst) that really start to hit around midnight through morning


Adventures & Settings

BX3 Temple of Mercy -  Pacesetter module for 3rd level characters, involving the former lair of an evil cult. 24 pages, $3

Reaping at River's End - 5e adventure converted to S&W from Pacesetter. Something about a wizard leaving time letting the people of the village get sick.  For highish level characters, $6 (not just S&W stats, but S&W pricing!) and 26 pages

SM14 Of the Rakuli -  From Dunromin University press comes this supplement about a mysterious old vanished race.  For the Barnayia setting and 1e/OSRIC.  52 pages and PWYW ($2.95 suggested)

Rules

Filling in the Blanks - Random tables for Hex crawling, which are incredibly numerous, but this is from Third Kingdom Games who have a good track record. $9.95 and 65 pages

OSR Alternative Classes - Apparently the Third Kingdom guy has been busy, as he also produced this supplement of different classes for B/X. 48 pages, PWYW (suggested 50 cents)

Survive This: Fantasy - Core Rules -  Basically the rules to the OSR '80s Stranger Things style game, Dark Places & Demogorgons (which are a mishmash of OSR games, but mostly B/X) now for fantasy. 198 pages and $9.95 (also available in print)

Survive This! Fantasy GameMaster's Guide -  The GM counterpart to above, with magic items, monsters, and random tables. 216 pages, $9.95 (also available in print)

New OSR Products at DTRPG — August 13th, 2020

 Is it me, or are people just now putting Artbreeder generated art on DTRPG as stock art? I think that's even lower than the "50 Drunken Penguins Found in a Cheese Shop" type products.

Seems a really light week, though.


Adventures & Settings

Sea Caves of Doom - Missed this from last week, I think. Ruined lair of cultists. 18 pages, $2.99


Misc

The Almanac of Fantasy Weather Volume 2: Europe - Want realistic weather (if your game happens to be in a specific part of Europe)? Probably not, but if you do, here you go. $19.99 and a ridiculous amount of pages.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — August 6th, 2020

Somewhat sparse week, but what there is is high quality. 

 

Adventures & Settings

 Bonepicker's Throne -  Another Rosethrone adventure, this for levels 2 to 4. 34 pages, $2.99

The Deadwoods -  Hex crawl in the ongoing series from Third Kingdom about a wood ruled by an undead Treant. 23 pages, $2.95

 The Doom of Cthedrak -  Another hex crawl from Third Kingdom which apparently includes a crashed spaceship and two orc race as classes.  $3.95 and 27 pages

Rules

 Forgotten Lore: An Untold Tales Book - This seems to be an Unearthed Arcana type book for OSRIC,. 60 pages, PWYW and the first product from "Crit Hit Games"

Misc 

Friday Enhanced Map 7-31-20 -  This map could easily be a modern espionage style underground lair. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — July 30th, 2020

Blogger upgraded itself for some reason, so this may be stranger than normal


Adventures & Settings


Avanar's Blade
- For OD&D. Seems more like a quick encounter, as there isn't a map as near as I can tell. PWYW, 1 page.

The Hanging Tree - Another 1 page adventure for OD&D. PWYW

The King's Crow - Another 1 page adventure for OD&D. PWYW

The Roadside Shrine - Another 1 page adventure for OD&D. PWYW

The Sunken Tavern
- Another 1 page adventure for OD&D. PWYW,  Honestly, these things look like they could be a one paragraph encounter in a hex crawl.

Rules

BX Options: Class Builder - This is interesting. Rules to make your own classes for BX and have them be balanced. Also some other stuff like a d6 skill system.  Not sure why they included that, since that's White Box, with the d100% being introduced even before Greyhawk was published. I also don't get the appeal, a d6 is not granular enough.  $9.99 and 78 pages.

Odysseys & Overlords Advanced Tools - Some add on rules for characters for the BFRPG based games. 24 pages, $2.95


Misc


Friday Enhanced Map 7-24-2020 - Smallish dungeon. $2

New OSR Products at DTRPG — July 23rd, 2020

Last week was my birthday, so I skipped


Adventures & Settings


Adventure Anthology: Blood -  Aka James Raggi really needs money, so here's 5 early LotFP adventures in one PDF. $19.99 and 350 pages.

Big Puppet -  Looks like it's one of those adventures where real life people end up in a game world. For LotFP so presumably it's super nihilistic, pretentious, and edgelordy. $9.99 and 99 pages.

Fermentvm Nigrvm Dei Sepvlti - LotFP adventure so like above, only some medieval thingie. 104 pages, $9.99

Last Vestige of Hope - Gamma World (1e) adventure from ThrowiGames, originally designed for a con. 30 pages, $4

Moving Maze of the Mad Master - The 6th Maximum Mayhem Dungeon Module for 1e/OSRIC. 44 pages, $10 and if it's like the previous, is more a con style adventure than a real one.

Star Jumper Adventure Pack - Compilation of 3 adventures for Small Niches's White Star games. 66 pages and $4.99

The Basilisk Knights -  Part of the ongoing hexcrawl series from Third Kingdom Games. 27 pages, $3.95

Tich-Toch Teens Hexcrawl the Moon - This seems to be a joke product for OSE. 69 cents and 4 pages with the promise it might get fleshed out if it sells.

Rules


Deck of Weird Things -  LotFP supplement, so presumably half of them will immediately destroy the campaign world, while the other half will just kill the characters. $9.99 and 66 pages.

The Woodsman - Medieval Authentic (tm) class for Lion & Dragon. 99 cents, 6 pages.

Misc

New OSR Products at DTRPG — July 9th, 2020

Woof. The dog days of Summer are here.


Adventures & Settings


The Beatified & Damned -  One of those pretentious artistic modules. $3 and 4 pages

The Gateway to the Pallid Fields -  Part of the ongoing hex crawl series from Third Kingdom Games. 23 pages, $2.95. I have never heard anyone use the world "pallid" in real life.

The Lost City: Campaign Sourcebook - Companion of sorts to the classic module B4 The Lost City, which is really amazing, but at the same time, rather sketchy, almost more a framework of an adventure than anything else. Free

Rules


Circus Western -  I'm not sure if this is OSR or not. It's a translation of a spanish Wild West RPG. 68 pages, $4.95

Of Beats Brave and True -  Rules for playing critters in The Hero's Journey.  $4.99 and 49 pages.

Misc


Friday Enhanced Map 7-3-20 - Now this is cool looking. Like a amphitheater dungeon complex. $2
