    Old School Essentials

    I just saw these books available in the forge. What ruleset is this based off of? What ruleset do you open in Fantasy Grounds to make it compatible?
    See through the skies, far beyond our world tonight,
    Hear the sounds of freedom ring, in a silent dream,
    and a million miles away.
    Reach for the stars, and live our lives forever free,
    In our hearts for a thousand years, and a thousand lifetimes before.

    And the dawn of a new day will rise, a light for us all. -Dragonforce

    OSE is not my scene whatsoever but my understanding is that it's a B/X Clone that is very organized and easy to work with. Apparently it dead tree form it has both Ascending and Descending AC values (just like Swords & Wizardry does) but I guess the FG version only handles Descending AC.

    It uses his Attack matrix tables and is completely automated. So all you do is roll just like any commercial ruleset on FG. If you dont target you drop the dice on the token or CT and will also resolve automatically.
