For the D&D nostalgia crowd

Postby itowlson » Fri Jan 25, 2013 6:38 am

Apologies if this has already been posted but...

http://www.dndclassics.com/

WotC reissuing D&D books and modules all the way back to AD&D 1e / D&D Basic in PDF form. Coverage isn't comprehensive and prices are a bit higher than I think is justified by nostalgia value, but if you have particularly fond memories then...

Looks like it will be a nice magazine in the style of Dragon in the 1980s. I saw the issue 1 table of contents and the articles looked interesting, and a few good author names there. Covered a range of games, too, not just all D&D.

Unfortunately shipping physical magazines was insanely overpriced to NZ, but I think it will be available in PDF as well.

If you want to scratch a Holmes Basic-style itch for free, you could try BLUEHOLME: http://www.rpgnow.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=3982

Hey Vile - yeah, I meant to ask you about that - Blueholme looks neat! Do you have a bunch of OSR folks to play with where you live, or do you only connect with them online? Always curious about communities of play...

At the moment I'm playing with a Pathfinder group "around the table", but we'll playtest BLUEHOLME™ Compleat Rules once they're more-or-less done (in the next 2-3 months if all goes according to plan - which of course it won't). I also plan to run a simultaneous online playtest, either in a Google+ hangout or play-by-post on the OD&D Discussion forums.

Speaking of D&D nostalgia, I thought I'd mention the discovery of the Holmes D&D manuscript(s) and the page-by-page comparison with the published rules on the Zenopus Archives blog.
