Our fascination with the OSR
Mile high View
Is the OSR Nostalgia?
A Return to your Roots?
A Re-focusing of what you think is important?
The Truth in D&D?

II. Exhibit A: BG’s recent Exploration of B-X through OSE
We played OSE Saturday: Are the mechanics solid? Does it have the right feel? Any quirks?
Some old adventure design stuff became glaringly apparent.
The sheer gonzo nature.

III. Building Back Better
Should we:
1.) play OSR & just remove the warts as we see them
2.) to start fresh from 3.x – removing the cumbersome rules
3.) do our own thing from scratch OR
4.) Create a cool/fun setting (Hymyr) and just play all the variants of DnD and enjoy them for what they are
