Report OSR Ethical Issue in General Roleplaying Posted December 26, 2020 A bit of an update. I've been reading through many of the OSR PDF's I have downloaded and am in the process of deleting a lot what I doubt I have no attention would ever use, and looking over my DriveThru records reveals that a good deal of the DnD retro-clones have been downloaded through proper channels leaving just a handful of that I should actually purchase. Fortunately, most of those are cheap if bought as PDF's. I still need to go through many of the non-DnD related stuff to see what I would be interested in. Of the one's I have obtained by unquestionable means include Swords & Wizardry, Basic Fantasy, Old School Essentials, OSRIC, and For Gold & Glory. Of the one's I would like to invest in are Labyrinth Lords, Castles & Crusades, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcery, and B/X Essentials. All of these encourage me to creativity and offer a good cross section of rule choices in which to set campaigns. Related to these, I would like to add Dungeon Crawl Classics. I have only done a cursory look at the non-DnD stuff I have downloaded, but I have read through Aftermath! by FGU, and it looks like system that looks fun to play and run and inspires some creativity on my part; although since the copy I have downloaded is just a scan of the original box set, it would be a pain to actually run it. I noticed that it is available on DriveThru. If it is reformatted for PDF use, it might be a good investment to purchase. If not, I would hope that someone with some game creation since would take it over to re-write it and re-release it. There's also the old WEG Star Wars and TSR Marvel Super Heroes games. Both are readily available and all of the IP owners seem okay with free distribution of those products. There are a number of systems that I am interested in for their historical value but am unsure if I would want to run. Rolemaster/Starmaster is top of the list in that regards. Also, there are some systems that I did own at one point but have gotten rid of during one of those phases where I swear I am done with roleplaying and never want to return to it. (I've since learned to just put my books in the closet when that mood comes upon me.) I did buy a PDF of 4th edition Pendragon and would like to re-purchase 1st edition Warhammer.
