Bundle of Holding Old School Revivial – what would a UK version look like?

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?

    Good list. Possible additions include Maelstrom (the Domesday edition is out soon), Fighting Fantazine and that Golden Heroes clone I can never remember the name of.
