Traditional gaming news

Posted in Uncategorized by Michael "Chgowiz" on September 19, 2009

Goblinoid Games just released an update to their fantasy role-playing game Labyrinth Lord (LL), and they’ve updated their website. A new feature of the site includes the Labyrinth Lord Society, a group aimed at promoting and demonstrating Labyrinth Lord. LL is very similar to the B/X Basic D&D game from the early 1980s.

Fight On! has just released Issue #6.  Fight On supports all types of traditional roleplay gaming. There’s something here for sci-fi fans, Empire of the Petal enthusiasts, gamers who want to explore a dungeon of blocks and a continuation of the Fight On megadungeon. This issue’s cover is the prize-winning color art by Mark Allen, which won the recent Erol Otus art contest.

Four publishers of old school adventures have gotten together to offer a “Sampler PDF bundle“. This is a perfect resource for introducing old and new players alike to some traditional D&D gaming.

This bundle can be purchased from YourGamesNow or RPGNow.

Megadungeon.net, the free resource for old school style megadungeons has recieved a recent update – the Fungal Forests.

Design your own monster and have it made into a minature! Mythmere Games announced a Swords & Wizardry Miniatures Contest – details can be found here.

Traditional tabletop RPGs get some mass media exposure courtesy of a new column in The Escapist magazine, a video game periodical. Columnists Chris Brackett, Monte Cook, James Maliszewski and Allen Varney are sharing writing duties.

    A post like this is one of the things I had hoped TARGA would begin to do. The OSR lacks any sort of news hub for people to find out the latest developments in our widely spread little niche. Looking forward to reading more TARGA news posts. Thanks.

    Okay, somehow I’ve missed megadungeon.net—that’s an awesome resource!
