OSR News Roundup for May 20th, 2024

May's a busy time of the year for us, between multiple family birthdays and getting ready for the end of the school year. I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to put out today's Roundup, but was able to put together a short review of last week's releases; there honestly weren't as many new releases as I had expected to see, so perhaps everyone else is as busy as we have been.

The one year anniversary of Sabre Games brick and mortar opening is coming up at the beginning of July, and to celebrate we're hosting a mini-convention. If you're going to be in or around the central Virginia area July 4th - 7th we'd love to have you stop by. The schedule is still being worked out, but we're going to have various games and tournaments going on all four days.

  • In conjunction with a number of bloggers, Prismatic Wastelands released Wonky Willie's Authentic Interactive Extravaganza, inspired by the ill-fated and much-ridiculed Willy Wonky Glagow exhibit.

  • Just Another Goblin Cave showed up on my radar and it looks like an interesting little mini-dungeon. Defiantly handcrafted, it's a four-page adventure that bills itself as a short and sweet adventure designed specifically to introduce folks to the OSR style of play.

  • Melpomene Games has released Moonshine Revelers, an adventure for Mausritter. The art is composed of delightful watercolors that really set the mood and make me thing of my childhood copy of The Wind in the Willows.

  • A Traveler's Guide to the Echelon Forest is a constantly changing, system agnostic, die drop forestcrawl. It's also CC-BY-4.0, which means it can be shared, altered, or otherwise adapted for other purposes just as long as the original author is credited.

  • Tome of the Blood Baron is a mini-dungeon statted for Cairn, OSE, and 5e. It features all manner of vampiric foes and is designed to be run in a single 1-3 hour session.

  • Alex T is raising funds for Ruthless Heavens, Boundless Fate, an interesting rpg that looks a bit like Godbound and Exalted meets Miyazaki. I'm seeing more and more games like this, that come specifically with options for solo gaming.

  • Today's the last day to get in on the mini-Kickstarter I'm running for Populated Hexes Monthly Issue 34, which begins a look at the mining community of Dry Gulch, a location mentioned in, but just outside of, the Basilisk Hills Hexcrawl.
