Heroic worlds [repost] & things to come

As a gift for this Christmas i received a mint copy of "Fantastic heroes & witchery" and it triggered
in me the desire to play in the old AD&D style.

I am writing today to announce that i'll be sharing very old and never-before-seen articles about Original Dungeons & Dragons very soon on my blog, so stay tuned. New obscure gems will be revealed only here, as you should be accustomed to by now.


In the meantime, i thought it was a good idea to share -one more time- an item of paramount importance that several among the latest followers of this site may have missed.
I am referring to "Heroic worlds" by Lawrence Schick, published many many years ago.

It is still a text you can't do without, if you are really interested in the history of our hobby. Though there is more than just a game that is not reviewed within those pages, most of the obscure role-playing games are, and you won't easily find review of them anywhere else today.

I am in a total whimsical state of mind, so the updates on my blog stay sporadic.
I would have so much to say and write but can't do it now.

"Fantastic heroes & witchery" is a nice one, with a good old school vibe in it :)

I told you! ;-)

Excellent book and resource especially when trying to identify various old games and supplements. I don't always agree with his ratings, but on the whole this is a very good book, much better than Rick Swan's book rating RPGs, many of which it seems he didn't actually play.
