New OSR Products at DTRPG — November 28th, 2015

Not too much this week, a couple of adventures and a questionable White Box supplement (What's the point of White Box if you add everything from Greyhawk and etc back in. Only different names? Like the Knight Errant instead of Paladin)

Adventures


Ogres of the Fen -  OSRIC adventure. Ogres have fled to a town and the town wants to know why. 20 pages, $6.

Tree Maze of the Twisted Druid - Originally made by the author when he was a kid in 1981.  10 pages, free.

WBO04: Stuck on Etholk - White Star adventure. $1.99, 17 pages.

Rules


Bloody Basic Bundle - Has five different Bloody Basic rulebooks (each for different genres). $19.45

Blood & Treasure RPG Bundle -  Contains the main book, the monster book (although the main book has like 500 monsters), and the player companion. $20.97 and lots and lots of pages

White Box Chivalry - Paladins and Anti-Paladins for White Box, only under different names because using the normal terms wouldn't be cool (or something). 13 pages, $1.99

Misc


0one's Blueprints: Megadungson - The Undercity - Map for a megadungeon. 25 pages, $1.99

d30 Collection of Height & Weight Table  - Free

Very little OSR stuff discounted for Black Friday at DTRPG

As near as I can tell (based on a 100 or so items on my wish list and trawling through the drop down box),  just Lesser Gnome's catalog. 

Possibly Lloyd Metcalf's stuff.

It's hard to tell because they let you set a list price, then the actual price, and then a price for sales. But if the list price and actual price are different, it looks like it's being discounted for a sale, but it's not actually.  Just chicanery.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — Novemeber 21st, 2015

I have been sick as a dog this week. Worse, since I've rarely seen a sick dog, to be honest.

Somewhat curiously, there have been a couple of Gangbusters supplements, most notably Joe's Diner, 
an adventure locale for $1.99 and Police Dispatches which is Pay What You Want

Adventures


MA: Robots Among Us -  From Jim Ward and Goodman Games comes this 20 page book on encounters with robots gone wild. $5.99

PA1 Vault of the Faceless Giants -  Indian themed B/X adventure using their (Big Something Dragon Games) psionics rules, but easy to ignore the psionics stuff. Free for the time being, 16 pages.

The Folio #4 - 4th module in the Roslof Keep campaign. 36 pages, $5.99 and for 6th to 9th level characters

Whitebox One Shot Bundle #1 - Contains 3 adventures from Small Niche Games: Return of the Mad Hermit, Swamp Dungeon of the Bandit Lord, and Tower of Boon Companions. $4.99

Misc

All Gothic Roleplaying Accessories products temporarily Pay What You Want

I kinda thought they were, to be honest, but both of their products, A Haunted Island ( a short adventure) and Folkloric Interludes: Marriages & Brides to Evil (another short adventure) are now Pay What You Want.

Both are based on gothic literature and folklore, so worth a look if you like that and worth paying a bit to encourage the author to make more.

Vault of the Faceless Giants free for playtest



The upcoming adventure PA1 Vault of the Faceless Giants from New Big Dragon  is currently free in playtest form. If you download it now, you'll get the updated version when it goes live.

What's the catch? Well, besides it not being final, apparently it features psionics from his psionics book. Ugh, I hate psionics.

Other than that, looks pretty neat and Indian themed.

New OSR Products at DTRPG — November 14th, 2015

Kind of a quiet week, at least in the world of OSR products.


Adventures


Tower of Boon Companions - From Small Niche Games comes this White Box adventure for 3rd to 5th level characters. At first glance it looks like RQ style ducks on the cover, but they are apparently orcs drawn comically. 44 pages, $2.99

Rules


Classes of Ruin: Pirate -  Free pirate class for Labyrinth Lord. Yar!

Species Spotlight: Abhorrans - I guess this is for White Star. They seem to be like Hutts  (think Jabba from Star Wars or Pizza from Space Balls). $1.50, 10 pages.

Misc

d30 Half-Elf Height & Weight Table -  Free, but couldn't he have combined them into one file?

B/X Monster Reference Index - Looking for a B/X monster? Well, this will help you, having stat blocks for 500 critters. $2, 29 pages.

RND Issue 1 - Random fanzine. PWYW

New OSR Bundle of Holding

Well, new in the since that the bundle is new, the contents seem to be pretty old.

For $4.95 you get

  • Swords & Wizardry (Mythmere Games, retail price $10): Matthew Finch's complete 2012 rulebook recasting white-box Original D&D, plus the Eldritch Weirdness and Monster Book supplements.

  • Cyclopean Deeps 1: Down to Ques Querax (Frog God Games, $5): The introductory chapter in a very tough and extremely subterranean campaign across the Under Realms.
  • Demonspore (Mythmere, $7): A zealot band of Shrooms is cultivating a new god in Matt Finch's adventure (levels 3-6) for Swords & Wizardry or any OSR fantasy game.
  • Plus the "OSR Toolkit": Especially for this offer, we assembled this rich collection of free rulebooks, tutorials, magazines, and even graph paper.

For $13.17 you also get
  • Adventurer Conqueror King System (Autarch, $10): A well-integrated complete B/X-style rules set that scales smoothly from novice dungeon crawls to empire-building.
  • Stonehell Dungeon (Michael Curtis, $9.50): Michael Curtis's acclaimed megadungeon and its first two supplements.

  • The Monolith Out of Space and Time (Lamentations, $7.25): James Raggi's controversial, not to say polarizing, Lovecraftian nega-dungeon.

Honestly, I'd say the only thing really worth the money out of that bunch is Stonehell Dungeon.  But YMMV
