A proposed supplement for +Arnold K.'s Bug Collector class.
 
Bug Collectors In the Necropolis
An additional ecosystem for +Arnold K. 's  Bug Collector class . Levels 1-3 roll 1d10. Levels 4-5 roll 1d12. Levels 6-8 roll 1d14. Higher levels, you need to make something up, I guess. Ain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones. Coll...

Fiction.
 Hypno-Coin It’s always tough fitting in at a new school, in a new social environment. But it can be even tougher when all the kids in your new class are just a bunch of withering shits that get off on others misery. My mise...

Work continues on my Wild West RPG, with old school sensibilities. 
Work continues to progress on Tombstone - sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. I have been editing and amending the alpha rules, and tidying up various inconsistencies. I hope to have a playtest version ready by the year's en...

I think that the new business model is "bring in millions of dollars in new Bones sales every year".

On game design...
An abiding rule in all our games is that the GM/judge/referee is free to add or change anything to suit their own campaign or playing style because we find it BENEFICIAL.  The GM, in particular, has a great sense of ownership...

About this community

For fans of the OSR; a community of role-playing gamer that have an affinity for the types of tabletop role-playing games that we played in the early days of the hobby. Variously called the Old School Revival, Renaissance, or just plain Roleplaying. Please note that discussions of 5th Edition D&D are off-topic unless they directly involve OSR-type games (such as comparisons of mechanics). (OSR Logo by Stuart Robertson)

Anybody running OSR games in European time zones? I'm hankering for some old-school action, but can't be up all night playing with the North American crowd.

Iron Falcon RPG (OD&D Retro Clone)  - Looking For Players (One Shot) - http://ironfalcon.basicfantasy.org/

Those of you who've seen me know that I DM a B/X game every Wednesday on Google Hangouts / Google+/

I had a quick peek at the Iron Falcon rules and I like them quite a bit. From what I understand, this RPG is the *closest* anyone has gotten to the original books from 1974. 

Is anyone interested in participating in a one shot of Iron Falcon RPG? I have one player ready to go, but I would like to add at least two more. The evening will consist of some character generation and then a dungeon crawl.

More than likely, this game will take place either on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening. If the group works well, it will turn into a bi-weekly game.

Let me know.

+Eric Nieudan you are correct. My timezone is GMT-5, so our games won't start until 02:00 your time. If you ever can't sleep, feel free to join in

Sad news, sounds like he produced some excellent work - so if that's how we judged a life lived then he's done well.

Thanks for allowing me to join. I've been using D&D since the 80s! Now, I'm a developer and have created a free online system where D&D PBP can take place in a controlled environment where there is no trolling and the level of input is at a serious level. In-house public character creator with custom styles is accessible. I am always looking for DMs to run games and players too. I provide the environment and system so you can store character info and run your games in a MOBILE friendly environment. There is even built in automated anti-cheat dice! This allows players and DMs to run games at their convenience without having to physically be at a table or live group regardless of you being in New Zealand or the USA. Here is the Board that handles D&D:  http://www.bordeglobal.com/foruminv/index.php?showforum=135

Have a table for random determination of Divination Methods!
 
Each Magic School which includes Divination in its training will select one or more methods to teach to initiates. The method of Divination is not mechanically important, but adds color and cultural diversity to the act of seeking hidden knowledge.  This table provides prompts for the GM to improvise a Divination System for a random culture or individual.

I've always loved tools and flavor for spellcasting beyond the book. This table sparks plenty of ideas and could easily be used for ANY wizard school template. Thanks for this.

We've updated Blood of Pangea, clarifying carrying capacities for mounts on the top of page 17, so check your libraries!  It's waiting...

Getting this ready for a possible 6' x 9' hardcover special release in the coming months (Lulu).  Thoughts on this idea are most welcomed!
