New OSR Products at RPGNow/DTRPG — April 25th, 2018

Spring might actually finally be arriving, with forecasts of actual 70 degree weather, which hopefully will give me a chance to read and review more stuff (since I usually do reading on a tablet outside at night, which I can't really do when it's cold)

Official


Dawn of the Emperors Boxed Set -  Or rather, I think it's just now available in POD form. I picked this up (it's the last of the Known World Gazetteers for B/X or BEMCI) ages ago for like $5 on ebay.  Now it's $9.99 for pdf for $25 ish for print versions

Has very simple rules for creating big magic items, like flying ships and short adventure hooks about the flying fantasy version of The Love Boat.

Adventures


Those Dam Goblins (Revised) - I guess a multi-system version (LL and BECMI) of a previous adventure (1e/OSRIC, I think) involving goblins wanting revenge for a beaver attack.   37 pages, $6

The Shrine of Fallen Angels -   Looks like a more detailed location originally in some hex crawl. For S&W. 19 pages, $1.99

Rules


0e Monsters of Jordoba -  Sounds like a Jamaican-Mexican restaurant, but I guess is a setting? Anyway, 3 monsters for $1 (and 7 pages).

Divinities and Cults Vol III -  I might actually get this, it's a LL book about clerics of "7 Mesopotamian and 7 Egyptian gods and goddesses, including Enki, Enlil, Ereshkigal, Ishtar, Marduk, Nanna, Utu, Anubis, Bast, Horus, Isis, Osiris, Ra, and Thoth" plus some evil cults (Nergal, Set, Apep, Dagon, and Tiamat) and has original art.

On the other hand, it's a bit pricey at $6.99 and 44 pages and the artist is IMHO the worst working RPG artist, OSR or otherwise.

Misc


Friday Enhanced Map 4-20-18 -  Eschewing the obvious theme, this seems to be a dungeon that has been partially flooded or suffered from the ravages of time. $1

Hydra #3 - Some sort of Scandinavian  OSR zine/. 52 pages, $2.49
