Just wanted to drop Bandit's keep YT channel here, pretty good content.
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 haven't watched his actual plays as there's so many of them, got any recommendations?

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
The Vast in the Dark is an exploration setting for the world’s most popular role-playing game and takes place in a crumbling alien wasteland filled with brutalist mega-structure ruins. It includes tools for generating massive areas to explore as well as unique player options and gameplay changes to keep the focus on player choice and ingenuity over dice-rolling and chance.

In the Shadow of Tower Silveraxe - Seems okay at best if I"m being honest.
A chaotic leader of a group of outlaws and mercenaries, Duard Silveraxe, has braved the Labyrinthine forest and taken control of the ancient ruined Tower of Shadow from the elves. Duard seeks power here—legends say that the elves of the tower keep a dark power hidden there—immortality and weird magical abilities granted to the one who performs the rituals to unlock them.

For centuries, the elves of this region have been custodians of the Tower of Shadow. Their charge has been to keep its ancient magic hidden from those who might use it in the name of chaos—the ability to harness the powers of the Shadow Plane. To become shadow itself.

Since the assault, the denizens of the surrounding forest, including the more monstrous creatures—trolls and giant spiders— have fled from the vicinity of the tower and into the nearby mountains, causing problems for settlers of the region—including the residents of the peaceful dwarven town of Karn Buldahr. The town council has sought aid from any willing adventurers to help deal with the attacks.

Gordinaak
Mech Bustin' Gang Warfare on a dying planet. For use with Mothership RPG.

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.

Oh! Oh! I've got one that deserves all praise! I hereby give you...

a trio of zines by:

Oh my!

Nothing like a girl's revenge fantasy against a famous female fantasy author featuring home invasion and girly mischief. Tee hee!

A sweet nothing from a lovely lady. The heart flutters!

With such extras as...

Yes! The author's "own personal genital information"! A handsome price from our blushing beauty, as featured in this Youtube interview:

Sadly, the campaign has already funded, so you are NOT among the 114 lucky duckies who raised $2,528 to help bring this project to life. Your loss!

I think its more that tfe questing beast guy is trying avoiding drama surrounding individuals/products by not covering them like how I havent seen anything on his channel in ages tangently related to lamentations of the flame princess.

He still has those old videos up about Lotfp and hasnt deleted them just never talks about them anymore.

Yes, this. He deleted his videos abou zak s. stuff also. He did a review for zzarchov lotfp stuff a while back and got bullied on twitter because of that. I never saw again he reviewing anything about lamentations stuff after that. He does not even mentioned lamentations when he talked about osr influentional systems some time ago.

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

GMG5240-1-Cover-768x993.jpg


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.

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 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.

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

I bought it a while ago. Haven't had the chance to run it. Very good job.
