OSRIC, the Old School Reference and Index Compilation, is, to quote the introduction...:

OSRIC Introduction and Purpose wrote:...intended to reproduce the underlying rules used in the late 1970s to early 1980s, which being rules are not subject to copyright, without using any of the copyrighted "artistic presentation" originally used to convey tose rules.  In creating this new "artistic presentation," we have made use of the System Reference Document produced by Wizards of the Coast, Inc.


OSRIC is available at http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/osric/

Check it out, and if you like it, pass the word.  

Discussion about OSRIC and Q&A about the rules are ongoing on The Delver's Dungeon @ http://www.thedelversdungeon.com/forums/, The Knights & Knaves Alehouse @ http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/phpbb/index.php, and Dragonsfoot @ http://www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/index.php.

Thanks Stephen, but it's not really my work (I'm still editing, actually ;) )---Matt and Stuart are the guys who did all of the legwork.  I'm just helping out, and hoping to revive some old-school publishing efforts.

Like, say, your stuff, for example :D

I would, except I don't have any of the stuff that was auctioned off (I didn't keep copies and I haven't heard for months from the people who bought them and were thinking of knocking them into shape for print).

But OSRIC is the perfect chance to put it all together.


Regards,



Stephen

If the guys who bought it will work with you, I think you are in business with it.

Wish I could offer you more, but they are all on this board, so this is the place to contact them.

Stephen

BTW, OSRIC has convinced me to sell my old woodgrain boxed set, when Paul has time for it.  I held on to it because I didn't like the flavor of somethings, but I like OSRIC.

Steve, are you sure its not the recent price surge that convinced you to sell it. :wink:

"Sinister Shroom" sounds like something my dorm buddies in my college days might have been chowing down on to get high on the weekends....then again, I have always been strangely fearful of fungus.  A 6 foot tall walking mushroom trying to rip your head off would be pretty frikken scary. I'm thinking about ordering one, will they only be available online or at some point offered commercially?

Thats why I liked A4.

Only around 250 will be printed (the link leads to the printed version), otherwise it will always be a PDF (which is $5).

(correction: jgbrowning states around 250, not 200 as I originally had)

No, mine is like a third printing, not a first printing, and I covered it with contact paper, so it doesn't have near the value.  I'm just clearing things out here and there.  By the time I get hold of Paul Stomber (I left him a pm here) and actually do anything, if he is interested, the surge ought to be over.


Regards,



Stephen

Got hold of Paul, he'll probably be able to get around to selling my stuff in November or December, I've got two boxes of stuff packed up and am expecting to get a third box of stuff from storage -- old Different Worlds (issues 1-6) the two best Quick Quincy Gazettes (two semi-clerical character classes for Dwarves -- smiths and masons, and the best alternate cleric character class I've seen), lots of misc. stuff and all the world of darkness stuff I picked up -- Changling and such.


Regards,



Stephen

Thanks for the mention! I'd also like to note that the 10€ price includes shipping anywhere in the world, someone ordering today from the US said it came out to $13.14 after currency conversion, and it's limited to 150 copies. :)
