I cannot think of a better collectively edited collection of #OSR #adnd1e et al #rpg gems than @kensanata 's Link to Wisdom and I think it needs to be posted about occasionally:

All of these articles are hand picked and dealing with the older editions of the game by the OSR bloggers that love it.

I frequently come back to this site for inspiration. I also drop off great posts, well written, from my blogroll/rss reader.

@gunnar it's an old post, but have you considered these:

I'm super excited looking forward to session 1 of a game we're starting tonight.

Adventures are bound to start in the vertical megacity of *colossa* build inside of a gargantuan crater on a tide locked planet. Fierce environment outside, unfathomable depths inside, stable of dubious NPCs waiting to be unleashed ...

I liked the part about skills in this blog post: “it should generally just work unless it's ridiculous. … you want to pick a lock? Did you buy lockpicks? Then you do it. … Want to bust down a door? You do it … If it's particularly complicated … maybe refer to the character's background and make a ruling based on that. … You're playing Traveller and you want to rappel down a wall? Do you have some rope? Then you do it.”

Couple of days ago I was pondering what the 21st century Appendix N would look like ... or should look like.

I think some works in the original Appendix N are a quite problematic, if not outright sexist.

So in the light of the current frenzy in the community.

Isn't it time to adjust cultural assumtions in ?

In meinem Bezirk (in #Hamburg) setzen sich einige Parteien dafür ein, dass das Bezirksamt (Rathaus) eigene #Facebook- und #Twitter-Auftritte betreiben sollte. Ich möchte einen Antrag einbringen, dass #Fediverse Alternativen geprüft werden. Dazu wäre es im Vorfeld nützlich, mehr über die Kosten zu wissen, die z.B. das Betreiben einer Mastodon-Instanz verursachen kann.

Bin für jeden Hinweis dankbar, auch zu vergleichbaren Projekten! Please, boost!


Saw the *Fake People* tonight. So good!

If they happen to be around, by any means, be there!

So, Katze aus dem Sack:

Hier ist die Beta-Version meines "Heartbreakers"

Vielleicht hast Du ja mal Lust zu gucken und mir eine Rückmeldung zu geben.

Ich war übrigens über *Hellebarden & Helme* gestolpert, als ich ungefähr auf Seite 50 war 😆 ...

Hallo @kensanata , Du hast nicht zufällig mal einen einfachen Charakterbogen in gebaut? Oder mal einen im Netz gefunden?

since there is this "OSR Good Ol' Games sale" on DTRPG, could you recommend a module for / from the "Advanced Adventures" series by Expeditious Retreat Press?
