OSR News Roundup for June 20th, 2022

I'd like to start off with a couple of products I missed last week, both designed to take advantage of the current print prices before they go up in July. This update is a little late and a little abbreviated -- I was traveling over the weekend, and didn't have as much time as I would like to add stuff. If I missed something let me know and I'll add it to next weeks.


*Hack and Slash Publishing has released Classic Fantasy Negative Space, a bundle of three of their titles combined as both print and pdf in a single bundle. It includes the popular On Downtime and Demenses.


*Axian Spice has released the Lands of Legend Print and PDF bundle, featuring five themed location-based 'zines.


*You can find Casket of Fays #6, a free 'zine written for Dragon Warriors. It's also available on itch.


*John Buckley has released Basic Fantasy Spellcard as a PWYW product, which are pretty much what they sound like, printable spell cards for use with Basic Fantasy.


*I'm a big fan of Richard LeBlanc's work, and he's just released CC2 Creature Cache, a collection of monsters statted out for OSR games based on monsters seen in pulp literature and illustrations.


*The Black Fortress has released Four Maps: Villages and Settlements, a collection of four small settlement maps ready to be populated for use in a campaign.


*The Darkness of Kasta is a low-level adventure designed to as an introduction to the Grimstone setting. I'm not aware of the setting, but the pdf of the adventure is currently 75% off the normal price on Drivethru.


*More monsters is always a good thing in my book, and Introductory Monsters for Worlds without Numbers provides 27 unique low-level monsters for the aforementioned system.


*I'm glad to see this out (and am anxiously waiting for the print copies to arrive in the store); Gig Economy, one of the many products crowdfunded for ZiMo22, is now in pdf, featuring two hundred ready-to-use retainers for OSE or other old-school games.


*IKO, who was featured in last week's Meet the Publisher interview, has released Scary MoFos on itch, a 90's suburban horror game.


*Woolly Swamp is a solo rpg where you play park rangers in a weird swamp.


*Ronin is a one-page hack of Lasers and Feelings, designed to emulate a mythological vision of Japan's early Sengoku period.


*I've added a couple of new titles to the webstore:
