1 Year and 200 Reviews

uh … I passed those landmarks a bit ago since I’m now 1y20d old with 209 reviews. I hate reading the posts similar to the one I’m about to make, but I’m nothing if not a hypocrite.

I started this blog because I could find no useful information about published OSR adventurers. I hope it’s helping expose people to material they may like, especially those from smaller publishers.

I anticipate running out of commercial material soon and expect to expand my coverage to free adventures and products for other system, like DCC.

I try to focus hard on just adventure reviews but I may expand a bit further in to other related areas. A comparison of the 0e and 3e version of the Judges Guild modules, for example. Or a comparison of the various domain systems, from Birthright to ACKS and HarnManor. I’m also very interested in producing a single page that allows you convert any edition module to any edition of D&D, focused on XP. IE: I have 3e characters and a 1E module: what changes do I need to make to it? Bump the level range down 3, divide all experience by 10, and do X for saves.

The least read blogger in the OSR,

BRYCE

 

(and I swear to fucking god I’m going to figure out what the deal is the fucked up CR/LF shit on this blog. Dammit, it drives me fucking nuts!)

    The best site for OSR reviews I have encountered so far. Hope you keep them coming! I hope you review some of the new DCC modules in the future too.

    Congrats! I’ve never written any game material, but after reading your reviews, I’ve felt inspired to work on an adventure myself. So you have had at least that much effect. :)

    There’s 3 blogs I read regularly, Jeff’s Gameblog, YDIS & Tenfootpole.

    I find our attitudes to what makes a good module pretty similar (apart from your weird obsession with Fey) so this blog is pretty helpful for me. Thanks.

    I’d like to join the other and say “thank you!” for all these reviews. Also, the converting thingie you mentioned sounds great.

    You create one of my favorite tabletop rpg blogs. I recently purchased 5 adventures based upon your rules for an ACKS hex crawl campaign I’m preparing.

    I’m very much looking forward to your conversion system for D&D modules. I’ve yet to find anything on the web that helps to convert 4e back to B/X or AD&D.

    Please keep up the great work and know that your efforts are appreciated!
