New OSR Products at RPGNow/DTRPG — May 23rd, 2018

Bah, working on a couple reviews but can't quite seem to finish them, since I'm meh about either one. (Things are hard to review when you have no strong opinion about them and not getting paid for it).

Also somewhat notable is Boot Hill 3rd Edition is up on DTPRG. I guess it was 2nd edition we played back in the day, I'm not sure how different 3rd is. Previous editions were clunky, but worked really well in play.


Adventures


Delver's Keep -  I think it's an adventure and not just maps.  But at $9.99 and 28 pages, I'm not going to find out for sure.

Pyramid of the Lost King -  I think this actually came out last week and I missed it. But big adventure for S&W. $8, 106 pages

Pyramid of the Lost King Extra - The Howling Dolmens - Add on for above. $1 and 3 pages.

The Graydeep Marches - This is interesting, a smallish setting and 3 short adventures from Peter Schweighofer who worked at West End Games and did a lot of work on Star Wars D6. Definitely on my "to buy" list.  34 pages and $6.99

Rules


Demi-Human Adventurers -  Rules for playing race as class in S&W.  Why you'd want to, and if you did, you couldn't just use the LL rules (or other B/X clone) for free. 75 cents, 9 pages.

Non-Human Player Codex for Early Era  Fantasy Gaming -  I'm not sure what it is, sounds like it's a reference guide to the non human classes in Labyrinth Lord.  I'm not sure why you'd need this, much less pay $1.49 for it, nor do I think the B/X era is really "early", as it's basically 7 years after OD&D was first published and 3 since AD&D.

The OSR Chymist - This is a conversion of the Pathfinder alchemist class to OSR. I've read a number of Pathfinder novels and while most are dreadful, there's one series that features an alchemist that I quite enjoy and I wanted to convert that to OSR.  PWYW, 15 pages.

Misc


Friday Enhanced Map 5-18-18 -  Looks like a heart shaped cave. $1

Nod 34 - John Stater's excellent zine continue, this time focused on Persia. 117 pages and $3.99  If there's a better value (besides free stuff) in the OSR (or even gaming), I don't know it.

RPG Presents #32 - $2.49 and 13 pages for info on his fantasy campaign. Bleh, I'm starting to think I should ignore him like the Filbar guy.

  1. Let us know Greydeep is. It looked interesting, but seemed more of a regional setting than adventure.
