New Beginner Module from Mischief Inc

Last year, Mischief Inc. made a minor splash with the release of a free OSR module, Tomb of Rakoss the Undying.  Now they are back with the first in a line of 3 modules. The first, The Inheritance, is for levels 1-3.

If it's anything like their first module, it should be more or less compatible with most OSR games, but featuring things like Ascending AC and some other 3e-isms.

    Thanks for posting this. I am the author of both The Tomb of Rakoss the Undying and The Inheritance. The adventures are both written in OSR compatible formats. Ascending AC is used but with conversion notes for descending AC. Although some 3e SRD terms are used, only those tied to mechanics actually inherent to older additions are chosen, or if possible a variant is given to apply to strictly old school gamers. We avoid for example Bard NPC's as 1st edition versions are quite cumbersome in terms of stat blocks. Content wise, the adventure is 40 pages long and should be played over 3 sessions. The art is incredible with both a Storn Cook cover and the legendary Jeff Dee on the back cover. The flavor is also quite different being epic fantasy as opposed to horror fantasy. Please feel free to reach out for additional information. We appreciate blogs like this that help us keep our favorite hobby running strong!
