    OSR/Classic Ruleset Interest List

    So far, the feedback has been positive for the following list:

    • Hackmaster (in progress by someone else)
    • Labyrinth Lord + AEC
    • Crypts & Things Remastered
    • WWII: Operation White Box
    • Apes Victorious
    • White Star (in progress - Andraax)
    • Mutant Future
    • Starships & Spacemen
    • Metamorphosis Alpha
    • Gamma World
    • Boot Hill




    If there are others that you all have interest in, please list them in subsequent posts. I'll add them to the list and after I finish the S&W ruleset, I'll determine which OSR ruleset to tackle next based on community feedback and interest.

    Other ideas:
    Basic Fantasy RPG, OSRIC, Dark Dungeons, For Gold & Glory, Adventurer Conqueror King, Mazes & Perils, Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells, Stars Without Number, The Nightmare Underneath, Tunnels & Trolls, Myth & Magic, Godbound

    I've already got a start for a White Star ruleset based on Castles and Crusades. Need to finish that up sometime and put it out there for others...

    I haven't decided what I'm going to work on next. Basic Fantasy is a possibility, as is Metamorphosis Alpha or Ape Victorious. Any of those would likely not be too difficult to fork from what I have already worked on. Basic Fantasy, especially. It is basically Castles and Crusades with the AD&D five save system and attribute checks in place of the Siege System.

    Would there be any interest in a Gamma World ruleset?
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Mon/Fri - on hiatus)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)
    * 2e Greyhawk (Wednesday)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    Absolutely, but I'm thinking that the best version of that will be Mutant Crawl Classics when it comes out this summer. It is 100% compatible with the DCC RPG ruleset out of the box. Nothing will need to be done to support it, other than possibly doing a theme extension. Get your books on pre-order.

    Heck yeah, Gamma World! I'll add it to the list. I'm thinking that MCC might scratch the itch but no sense leaving GW off the list, you know, just in case!

    Oh, and while I was at it, I added Boot Hill! Not sure how I could have forgotten those two yesterday.

    Boot Hill would be interesting, but it's been out of print for forever. I haven't seen a copy of it since I moved away from home in the early 80's. If they still exist somewhere's, they would likely cost an arm and a leg on e-bay. Likely not a viable project.

    OSRIC & Dark Dungeons is a good idea for compatibility with AD&D and Rules Cyclopedia / BECMI.

    Yep, that is what I was thinking too. And to answer your earlier question, I'm definitely going to be adding Crypts & Things Remastered functionality!
