New OSR Products at DTRPG/RPGNow — November 1st, 2016

OSR goes WW2 this week with Operation White Box from Small Niche Games.


Marco Volo: Arrival -  He was like a travel guide writer to the Forgotten Realms, and apparently for some reason, they made a trilogy of adventures about him. This is the last.. 32 pages, $4.99

Marco Volo: Departure - This is the last of the trilogy. 32 pages, $4.99

Marco Volo: Journey - This is the middle of the trilogy, where apparently he travels to the modern world and becomes a roadie for a rock band and even cuts an album with Neal Schon (who BTW also made albums with Sammy Hagar and Jan Hammer). 32 pages, $4.99

X13 Crown of Ancient Glory - The last of the eXpert adventures for Basic D&D. 32 pages, $4.99. RIP


OWB 002: Norway Ablaze -  Contains 3 short adventures for the new WW2 OSR game from Small Niche Games (see below). 40 pages, $3.99

OWB 003: Desert Raiders of WW2 - : 3 short adventures set in North Africa. 39 pages, $3.99

The Ytroth Larvae of the Scarsea Cliff - Actually a systemless adventure, but I liked the name. Seems remarkably short though, 2 pages for $1.


Operation White Box -  The idea of mixing OD&D and WW2 goes back to The Strategic Review. While I would argue that that 4 page article was enough you needed, if you want a more comprehensive coverage, here you go. 183 pages, $7.99

I think the author, Peter Spahn, is the 2nd hardest working author in the OSR after John Stater.  I just wish he picked a less pretentious and better rules system to base his stuff on than White Box...


Maze Rats - This is a combination rules system (not OSR) and table for generating stuff (which is sorta OSR). PWYW and 13 pages. (And holy crud, it's got an average contribution of $3.61 and is a copper seller. I don't get it)

Friday Freebie Enhanced Map 10-23 = This one looks like a wizard's lair. $1 for the enhanced version.
