With the recent Bundle of Holding – “Old School Revival” Pdf bundle just gone, and what a fine thing it was, my mind could not help but think what would a UK version look like.
Remember this is pure fantasy on my part, and uses the idea that the UK OSR encompasses more than D&D.
The main bundle:
Advanced Fighting Fantasy Quick Start – Complete no-brainer this one.
Dragon Warriors, this is us brits taking the basic D&D idea, putting it through a folklore looking glass and coming up with something quite special and unique.
OpenQuest Basics – ok so I’ve not pulled this together yet, the link goes to OQ Deluxe (why don’t you check it out 😉 ) but a free low page count intro to D100 system you can’t go wrong.
A UK Old School primer – a selection of Coopdevil’s Fighting Fantasist articles about what the UK OSR is about
Oubliette Magazine issue #1 – because us Brits also do Fanzines too 😉
Crypts and Things – Blood of the Dragon A Swords and Sorcery sandbox!
Small but Viscous Dog – A B/X Warhammer hack by Chris Hogan.
As add ons:
Woodland Warriors – Simon Washbourne’s ( author of Barbarians of Lemuria) excellent child-friendly striped down d6 using version of Swords & Wizardry with Mice.
BRP Rome – OK published quite fittingly by an Italian company, but written by a Brit (Pete Nash) and would fit nicely alongside some of the historical setting pieces written in White Dwarf & Imagine magazine back in the day.
RuneQuest 6 – Its heritage may be Californian, but this implementation is pure Brit Old School ( remember us Brits owned RQ via Rune Rites in 80’s White Dwarf 😉 )
Anything I’ve missed out?
