Packed with giants, faeries, and magical beasts, the bestiary also features the tales these monsters come from and one to three pages of gameable material: adventure hooks, magical items, spells, dungeons and hexcrawls, and more! The book will be produced as a beautifully printed, full-colour hardback. The Kickstarter campaign only has hours to go, so don't miss out! Pledge NOW!
Old-School Solo Adventures
Coming soon to Kickstarter, this is a compilation of four solo adventures for Old-School Essentials. If you are familiar with the Choose Your Own Adventure stories, released by Bantam Books between 1979-1998, these have a similar flavor. You won't need a referee, you follow the branching pathways as you make choices and resolve outcomes using the Old-School Essentials rules. The four adventures span a range of play levels from 2nd through 9th levels. To get notified when the Kickstarter campaign launches, follow it HERE!
Recent Third Party Old-School Essentials Products
Peril in the Olden Wood
This is an adventure for character levels 3 to 5, set in the thicket-filled Olden Wood, where dangers lurk under shaded boughs, nurtured by wilderness and bloody history. Long ago, it was the domain of faeries and pagan tribes, but civilization arrived at its fringes generations back. Prosperous trade passed easily on roads guarded by holy knights. But in the last generation, the wilderness has slowly reclaimed Olden Wood and traffic has become ever more perilous. Will brave adventurers reestablish man’s domain, or will it be swallowed by dark shadows? PDF available from DriveThruRPG.
The Budget Bestiary
Many beloved fantasy monsters came from the everyday inspiration of cheap toys, household junk, and the imagination. The Budget Bestiary contains six new monsters for Old-School Essentials inspired by simple conversions of easily-available toys and other items, together with notes on how to build them and create your own creatures. PDF available from itch.io.
