Expeditious Retreat Press
  By: Joseph Browning
   You like modules? We got modules. Lots of them.
Expeditious Retreat Press has been creating OSRIC-compatible material since 2006. We've released 43-and-counting modules in the Advanced Adventures line, 2 monster books in the Malevolent and Benign series, and plan to continue releasing OSRIC-compatible material until the wheels fall off. In 2020 we'll release The Halls of Arden Vul. The largest OSRIC-compatible megadungeon! With 10 levels, 15 sub-levels, and nearly a million words in length, it's going to be a right beast!
Pre-Generated Characters: Vol. 1
16 pre-generated characters of 2nd or 3rd level, for use with OSRIC compatible systems.

Free Town of Groat's End - Twisting Stair Dungeon

   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
Since the party is going back to town, I needed to put one together. Here's a map for it, and I'll finish detailing out the town over the next few days in blog posts...
Pre-Generated Characters: Vol. 2
16 pre-generated characters of 4th to 7th level, for use with OSRIC compatible systems.
A Book of Miscellaneous Spells II
The & Publishing Group is pleased to announce the publication of Andrew Hamilton's second collection of Old School Gaming spells - A Book of Miscellaneous Spells II! This book of spells is designed for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) and OSRIC but is compatible with most Old School Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) games and their retro-clones. This volume contains more than 110 brand new spells for the four AD&D spell casting classes. This includes more than 30 spells for clerics, druids, and illusionists - plus 78 new magic-user spells of all levels. [Yeah, Andrew has a thing for magic-user spells!] That's enough, right? Right? Wrong. This collection includes spells for the Witch NPC class (from Dragon Magazine issue #114), one of Andrew's favorite NPC baddies. Plus it contains spells for clerics of the Cult of Juiblex. Never heard of this cult? It will be a nasty surprise for your players! If that isn't enough, look for the spells for Frost Giant and Gnoll shaman! Bad guys need more power to combat those dratted forces of Good! This gives it to them ... All told, this volume contains more than 150 new spells for use with all the D&D games of the 70's and 80's and their retro-clones.
"YAR to "The End of the OSR"

   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
Melan's post discussing the end of the OSR, and Anthony Huso's response, offered a chance to have -if for a small moment shared by only a few people - that sort of chained conversation that kicked the whole mess off and running. I say "mess" with mixed feelings ranging from fondness to good riddance...(click above for more!)
The Mystical Trash Heap
  By: Trent Foster
   A blog about D&D and other 80s-era pop culture
My infrequently-updated blog ostensibly covering the entire gamut of 80s-era pop culture but in practice focused mostly on D&D, specifically Gary Gygax-flavored 1st edition AD&D and the World of Greyhawk. Occasional house-rules and new crunch (spells, monsters, items, etc.) are posted alongside reviews and retrospectives, reminiscences, philosophical musings, polemic rants, and other standard blog fare.
Rage from the Waves
What horror from the depths is leaving ships adrift, cargo untouched, stealing the crews for some unspeakable fate? Lost ships. Missing crews. Disappearing cargo. The King is not pleased, and it's your job to find out what happened and bring a stop to it! To do so you'll have to unravel a mystery that's stumped the king's advisers. Clues? one ship that made it back with a stabbing spear of unusual design and some odd blood on the deck. Four to eight characters of 4th to 7th level will figure out the mystery. The adventure includes two completely detailed businesses, a full set of deck plans for a carrack, a second set of partial plans providing design variations, and an island with room for additional adventuring if you so desire. Add to this over 80 fully documented characters for use in this and other adventures, including several ship's crews, and you have an adventure that is also a resource.
Follow Me And Die!
  By: Larry Hamilton
I am a long-time gamer. I started with the Holmes Blue Box set of "Basic D&D" that only went to third level, back in March or April, 1977. I then moved on to AD&D, anxiously waiting as each book was released, reading every word as quickly as possible.
Druids and Undead
  By: Larry Hamilton
Druids in First Edition AD&D do not have the ability to turn undead. Other than physical combat or druid spells, druids are just like anyone else when it comes to undead.

He's well-regarded by the poorer masses because of his frequent assistance to sick or injured children and his financial support of the soup kitchen. Although the town isn't particularly fervent, Comonoc is influential while working quietly towards his own ends, which are invested in the status quo. He often changes the course of events small and large without anyone being the wiser...(click above for more!)
My Personal Rules as a Player

1) I do not hoard my wow-bangs. If I die with a sheet full of magical items or spells, then I played in vain. I am not here to advance a character, I am here to make fun memories with people I enjoy spending time with...(click above for more!)

   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
Approach: gamist over simulationist Appeal: player skill over character skill Aesthetic: Heavy Metal: the Movie over fantasy geographic My games and writing center around sandboxing between urban, wilderness and megadungeon play; and also a heavy dose of other-planar. Quirks include an irrational love of treasure maps, and using the DMG unarmed combat tables. Dice openly rolled to the fullest extent possible. Illusions are real to the character if the player responds except to disbelieve. Gandalf was just a 5th level wizard, prove me wrong.
Gunderholfen
Gunderholfen... Ancient, abandoned dwarf hold, battleground of arch-liches, cultist base, wizards' playground, heroes' bane and treasure-seekers' tomb.

This mega-dungeon and mini-campaign setting is designed for character levels 1-10+. It is compatible with any OSR system.

Undead In AD&D Part 2
  By: Larry Hamilton
Yesterday, I wrote a bit about Undead in AD&D, with a focus on the Monster Manual and Dungeon Master's Guide. I got a lot of likes and comments on it, some wanting to see what I had to say about the Fiend Folio.

Undead In AD&D

I was reading up on the various undead in the Monster Manual, and noted which ones in their descriptions specifically mentioned throwing holy water on them would hurt them.
