The Tomb of Sigyfel
by Trent F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/14/2009 12:29:43

A real nice, simple, straight forward classic dungeon crawl. This adventure delivers what it promises. And it is a steal for the price. I'm glad to have it in my collection.

Labyrinth Lord (alternate cover)
by Trent F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/14/2009 12:21:22

I agree with the past review by Nicholas Bergquist. "Great reconstruction of the classic Basic Edition D&D sets in a new incarnation under the OGL." Like many players I too graduated onto the next step up being Advanced D&D. However, after playing AD&D for many years (and several edition changes which gets costly to keep up with) I have returned to the basics for the sake of simplicity. This is a fantastic package and fits the bill nicely for a RPG that allows room for creativity. If your still into AD&D 1st edition, OSRIC will be more your thing. This new alternate cover is quite pleasing as well! Nice job!!!

Mutant Future: Revised Edition (no-art version)
by Kyrinn S E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/29/2008 19:00:33

Ha-Ha! If you LOVED 1st Edition GAMMA WORLD, but lost your copy of it somewhere along the way, you will in all likelihood, LOVE Mutant Future. While it does take a more 'tongue-in-cheek' view of that game, there are some worthy additions to make your nostalgia-trip well worth the effort. If nothing else, the new mutant creatures are an interesting addition to your 1st or 2nd edition GW game. Really, Mutant Future is so much like 1st edition GW, that it speaks for itself.

A great issue! The Mutant Future content is great, but my favorite is "Breaking Up is Hard to Do"! A very nice treatment of separating race from class in LL and great rules for multiclassing. Good job!

GORE

This is the next best thing to Basic Role Playing, RuneQuest or Call of Cthulhu. Heck, it's the OGL of those mechanics to run just about any percentage based RPG from the second generation of Role Playing Games. Download it, print it off and give it to your players and everyone can have access to the rules you'll need to run a d100 game system. Definitely a 5 Star rating when compared to a lot of the crap that is being promoted as RPG's in this day and age. Honestly, this was a breath of fresh air with that good ole' Old School that flavor that makes it even better. Excellent example of what Open Gaming is supposed to look like!!!

Mutant Future: Revised Edition (no-art version)
by andrew t. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/08/2008 08:26:34

It looks much like original box set D&D crashing headfirst into Metamorphosis Alpha, maybe with a touch of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles thrown in for good measure (leaning more toward the 2 Gygaxian contributions). It's a futuristic / post apocalyptic RPG with SpiderGoats. (Look for T-shirts, I think on Zazzle, but I don't remember for sure). Looks like a great game without a ton of crunchy to it.

Labyrinth Lord
by andrew t. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/08/2008 03:29:40

A retro game which compliments some of the 'heavier' games out there for the times when you want to play a bit lighter version, or simply want to reminice to earlier days in RPGs. Lately there have been a few throwbacks showing up, and this one seems to do a good job of hitting the nail on the head.

As an added bonus, it doesn't cost you anything.

Labyrinth Lord (alternate cover)
by Nicholas B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/17/2008 10:51:06

Great reconstruction of the classic B/E D&D sets in a new incarnation under the OGL. I was never much in to the original sets after I graduated to AD&D 1st edition, so OSRIC is more my thing, but this is a very nice package and certainly begs to be played as-is. Plus, they now have an alternate cover that does not burn the retinas!

Mutant Future: Revised Edition (no-art version)
by Nicholas B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/17/2008 10:36:12

Awesome work from Goblinoid to take the structure of Labyrinth Lord and apply it to a Gamma World-esque post-apocalypse adventure game, circa 1980. It's not 100% Gamma World as we all knew it, but you can definitely run some cool games with this book.I'll be snagging the POD edition soon.

Mutant Future: Revised Edition (no-art version)
by Steve A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/09/2008 13:55:35

For anyone wanting to play 1st edition Gamma Worlds, but you don't have it, this is what you want! It's simple, easy to play, expandable if you feel the need, and just plain fun. My group ranges in age from 12 to 45. Everyone of them loved to play this - novelty for the younger and nostalgia for the older. It brings back the feel and quirkiness of the late 70's and early 80's games, and leaves out the complexities of D20 and most of the "modern" games. While the rules are laid out in a logical manner, easy to read and understand, the game does NOT have to make "logical" sense or even "balance" to have fun! I highly recommend it to any who want to experience (or relive?) the early days of gaming and the "original" PA game.

Mutant Future: Revised Edition (no-art version)
by James J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/04/2008 11:46:07

Mutant Future is a great old-school inspired title.

I had the pleasure of playtesting these rules with my family and friends on a number of occasions and it is a joy to see the finished product. I've played it with players as young as 10 years old with no RPG experience to speak of and 50 year olds with decades of experience and it went over well.

The rules work very well for post-apocalptic adventures full of mutant oddities wether on the ruins of earth or so far flung world. Character creation is simple and fun with character choices being Human, mutnat human, mutant animal, android and mutnat plant. Mutant powers and ability scores are randomly determined. Not all characters are perfectly balanced against each other and sometimes it is possible to get a rather odd character that is a challenge to play; I simply love that sort of thing. Mutant animals are kept simple, no long lists of different base critters that generally go ignored with players simply picking from the 2 or 3 best options all mutnat animals are really defined by the mutatiosn rolled up with the occasional natural attack thrown in. There is a fair amount given to playing andriods and replicants that needs a little more work from the GM to fully implemen t(imho) but the starting point is sold and well defined. Mutant plants are a truely bizzare but playable character option.

The ruels assume a quasi-mideaval socitey in a area that once maintained an advanced technological society as the baseline starting point for campaigns and the equipment list reflects this. With a little work it woudl be easy to have campaigns with different starting points as there is a lot of stuff covered in this book.

I was initially surprised to find a lawful/neutral/chaotic style alignment system but the simple breakdown of those brief but broad descriptions work and fit.

There are a host of mutant/monsters included in this book from medusoids to spider goats. There are so many one could easily keep the game going for s good long time without even needing to tap the bulit in monster generator that the Pc creation system is.

There is a wide range of technological artifacts for one discover from dehydrated noodles to x-ray lasers.

The art varies from simple to amazing and includes soem clipart pieces, all in all it is evocative and does a good job in illustratign the game.

I've really just scratched the surface in thise write-up. The rules are simple and old-school: Ability scores, armor class, hit points and saving throws. Good stuff. Easy to get to the fun.

The Good: This is basically 1st ed. AD&D, with better organization and clarification of rules issues. For example, teleporting to a location you can see is clarified as a "very familiar" location. The spell tables are now alphabetical, not alphabetical by level. All the classic AD&D races and classes have been kept; none of the crazy kits, races, and new classes of 3rd ed. are here, as well as none of the cumbersome rules for "attacks of opportunity." The Bad: This is basically 1st ed. AD&D. There's no unifying mechanic or point-build system. Experience is still given for killing monsters. And so on.

I had this ages ago, almost feels like a time travel to have it back :)

What did surprise me: it is a scanned image product but it is OCR'ed and searchable!

The image quality is not that super sharp, but it is no pain to read, so no full stars.

OSRIC does a great job of re-imagining AD&D 1st Edition using OGL. The presentation is clear and easy to follow. It is a wonderful resource for players and publishers. I'm looking forward to all their future products as well.

And you sure can't beat the price, well unless somebody pays you to download it!
