Our fascination with the OSR
I. 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
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
