New OSR Products at RPGNow/DTRPG — February 28th, 2017

Relatively slow week in the world of RPGs, with only a few pages of new stuff. A fair amount of OSR stuff though, most notably, Creation's Edge is back with some of their mini-adventures this week, and there is a first issue of a Crypts & Things fanzine (I really should finish by review of C&T 2e).


Castle Spulzeer -  This is one of the last TSR adventures, delayed because of the infamous "printer problems" that TSR reps claimed were going on (which I guess were true, they didn't have money to pay them0. It's a Forgotten Realms/Ravenloft cross over. 64 pages, $4.99

Doors to the Unknown - Planescape adventure. $4.99 and 64 pages.

Hellgate Keep -  Somehwere in the mid-late 90s, TSR realized that some people actually liked dungeon adventures. So they started a "Dungeon Crawl" line of adventures that dealt with those. This is the 4th entry.  32 pages, $4.99

Servants of Darkness -  Ravenloft adventure. $4.99 and 64 pages.

The Vortex of Madness and other Planara Adventures - One of the last 2e adventures, published after WOTC took over TSR, though apparently started off as the last of the ____ Sites series (Planar Sites). 96 pages and $4.95.


Curse of the Web-Witch -  Not Peter Parker's aunt, apparently.  For levels 6-8 and $1.500 for 11 pages.

The Crystal Coffins - Defeat a ghost of a necromancer by destroying some crystal coffins. For levels 5-7, 10 pages and $1.50

TG3 Shadow out of Sapphire Lake - 3rd (or 4th, actually counting the mini-prequel) module in the Toad God series and apparently the wrap up. for levels 4-6. 32 pages, $4.99 and includes VTT files.




Friday Freebie Enhanced Map 2-24-17 - This week's map looks like an underground temple. $1 for enhanced version.

From the Shroud #1 - First issue of an irregularly scheduled fanzine for the excellent OSR game Crypts & Things. Includes a couple of adventures and other material likely useful for any sword & sorcery themed game. $4 and 38 pages.

  1. Re: Printer issues back at TSR.
    I still grit my teeth anytime I see Sean Reynolds name these days because he was the web guy back then and kept telling us all about these faux printer problems (dragon/dungeon was seriously delayed).
