This personal diary is devoted to the unveiling of the old fantasy role-playing games of the past (1975-1989),especially those which - for whatever reasons - are lesser known, forgotten, obscure or neglected.
A journey into the abysses of fantasy.
Rare and obscure fantasy rpgs galore
The most misunderstood fantasy rpg game of the past, without a doubt. Love it.
Behold the HOLY TRINITY. Perhaps the three most complex fantasy rpg in history.
Try to find a copy of this on ebay...one of the rarest old-school fantasy rpg. Known only by a few.
My pristine boxed set copy of Arduin trilogy...cherished much by me.
The ineffable WPG. One of the most obscure and hard-to-find old-school fantasy rpg of all time, impossibly beautiful. I'm astonished people played OD&D in the past instead of this.
The gigantic BM&G, by Bill Underwood. Like a commentator on Grognardia once wrote: "It has the best combat system of any fantasy RPG I've ever played"
The only adventure ever published for "Beasts, men & gods".
The incredible Bifrost, one of the deepest mystery in the OSR. One of my biggest treasures.
Melanda, i wrote a couple of posts about this old game. Wish i had in my hands the first edition of this.
I can't believe this old fantasy rpg published in 1987 is never mentioned anywhere. So old-schoolish. But i can understand that it is very rare, hence its absence from blogs.
The greatest fantasy role-playing game ever created, period. And maybe the most complex as well.
This was a very interesting alternative to AD&D back in the time. We should definitely devote more time perusing its rules and so forth.
Warlock...the greatest rival and antagonist of Original Dungeons & dragons...and far better than the latter.
Warlock tower, the supplement to Warlock: new rules.
The original Dragon wariors rpg in paperback...quite a good game, lots of ideas therein.
Another obscurity from Norway, a fantasy rpg published in 1987. I should definitely talk about this in the future.
