More stuff for the "old school" stream of gaming, where people still carry ten-foot poles and kick down dungeon doors:
Old School Revival -- the neoclassical movement to recapture the vigor and style of the earliest days of Dungeons & Dragons. The OSR offers tools, not plotlines -- rulings, not rules -- a gamemaster who doesn't railroad players onto a prearranged script but lets them sink or swim through their own actions. Encounters aren't necessarily "balanced," and outcomes are seldom scripted. Characters who don't use their heads usually wind up losing them. These fantasy RPGs, supplements, and modules are part of the passionate movement to reinvigorate and popularize play-styles associated with the first incarnations of D&D -- whether brown/white-box Original D&D, Holmes-Moldvay-Cook Basic/Expert, or AD&D 1e. Many, many "retro-clone" games recast the rules of one or another of these games in new language.
This new collection illustrates the OSR's diverse approaches, from Kevin Crawford's B/X-inspired Red Tide series to Tim Brown's Dragon Kings (a spiritual successor to TSR's Dark Sun, for which Brown was line editor) to the recent bestelling Index Card RPG.
