    I discovered it some months ago and it's my favorite OSR channel. He discuss fairly lots of topics without going into "I'm a professional DM hear me out" mode that so many do. Also, he runs a lot of game and it shows he has experience. FInally he has actual plays on his channel of which some are great.

    I'm biased towards the OD&D ones. Also since they are more devised as one shots, they are generally funnier because people are more into it/try out more things. His B/X one are cool too. Otherwise I like the Astonishing ones, but I am less knowlegeable of the system and it's a huge campaign (38 sessions as of this week) so I don't fully understand/watched everything lol.

    For nonsense like that I saw a zine about people turning themselves into the undead as a commentary on the health care system. I'm not looking for it just to link it there enough junk out there that should just fade away.

    For actual interesting zines these three seemed cool but we'll see on release:

    The Vast in the Dark
    In the Shadow of Tower Silveraxe - Seems okay at best if I"m being honest.
    Gordinaak
    This piece of art really sold me on Vast in the Dark I just hope it matches the effort in the writting of the zine. Though that is a silly amount of pouches if I'm being honest.

    He deleted the Zak stuff for clout, since he did it like, the weekend Mandy posted her shit IIRC. I could be mistaken but I am pretty damn sure I saw him in the discord patting himself on the back during the chaos about how cool he was for deleting Zak shit. That being said, you had to. Even just like, interviewing someone the Cancel Cultists don't like is a free invitation for you to be called a horrible neo-nazi forever.

    Didn't they turn themselves into liches as they were waiting to have their genders "corrected" by the NHS or something? There certainly seemed to be a lot of trans-this and trans-that bullshit zines being kickstarted.

    Dunno don't really care to remember as thats time better spent looking for fun stuff.

    But yeah there was a noticable minority of zines this round that were very much made for politics first and foremost.

    Huh Goodman Games released Empires of the East for dungeon crawl classics

    [​IMG]

    With Lankhmar and the upcoming Dying Earth kickstarter that'll be three classic fantasy novels turned rpg books. I think I will have to give DCC a shot one day but if nothing else hope they're good source books to use for other systems.

    I'm pretty sure that art isn't by Poag or Mullen, its the old WHFB guy.

    DCC has an insane art budget thought

    That's classic Ian Miller art, yeah. Of course, DCC has great artists working for their releases.

    It's not "OSR", but the Lyonesse RPG from Design Mechanism is a must-own for any fan of Vance's books (and the venerable BRP D100 system is plenty old-school and lethal in its own right).

    The book is a thing of beauty. It is too heavy for my tastes (sometimes literally - it is a 500-page book that weighs 1.5 kg), but the research is meticulous and the game has had a lot of thought put into it.

    The gazetteer in Lyonesse is worth the price of admission alone and is systemless enough to be useful with anything. That said, it's the best game I've ever owned, that I'm not sure I have the chops to do it justice as a GM (purely from a system mastery POV) but Mythras is like that.

    You know, this might be what will finally convince me to give DCC a shot... With that and all the other kickstarters my poor credit card will probably report me for abusive behavior

    I misgendered the catgirls and said bad things about soycialism on Bryce's review site. Someone on OSRG called me a fascist (ok, whatever), but then someone on the catgirl discord called me a liberal. That hurts. :negative:
    I did in fact write Castle Xyntillan, which will be in its third printing as of tomorrow! +M

    Piracy is the only sincere relationship, since it is free from base commercial interests.
