This Week In The OSR – Saturday, February 20, 2010
Edited at 2:56 PM, to remove reference to an event that everyone has agreed, never happened.
Pied Piper Publishing, has released Black Festival, by Robert J. Kuntz. Available in Softcover for $9.95, this 36 page chapbook, is available in a signed and numbered, limited edition of 150 copies. The author has some more info, posted at his blog. Congratulations, Rob!
Events & Happenings
The author of Chirine’s Workbench, has announced the David L. Arneson Memorial Maritime Mayhem, scheduled for April 10th, 2010 at The Source. The game will be set in Tekumel and you can follow the links above, to check out the details. I’m new to this author’s blog and not very familiar with Tekumel, but the Aethervox Tekumel Collections, will be on display and that certainly sounds pretty darn cool!
– a streamlined, deadly, 1st Edition D&D throwback with some D&D 3.5e influences.
There’s been no official announcement and I’ll keep an eye on this, as it develops.
Goblinoid Games, is currently #1 in the February Lulu Sales Contest! With the release of the Advanced Edition Companion and the boost provided to the original Labyrinth Lord core rule book, Daniel Proctor is in first place, as of the 19th. Congratulations, Dan!
News From Around the Blogosphere
I ran across a new blog, recently. Old School Rant – Heckling Old School Out of Spite. The author is reporting the daily goings on in the OSR blogosphere, along with some acerbic, though not hostile commentary. I’m a little curious, to see what he’s up to and invite him to visit my own blog, The Underdark Gazette. I’ve gotta be honest, I could use a good heckling.
Zak at Playing D&D With Pornstars, has given us a few more details on his upcoming internet based show. Titled “I Hit It With My Axe,” the show will be hosted at The Escapist. Good luck to Zak and his players, in their upcoming creative endeavor!
That’s It For Now
Kind of a lite news-week, this go-around. I’ll be back and as always, feel free to send news my way.
