    OSRIC: something for the old schoolers

    OSRIC, the Old School Reference and Index Compilation, is, to quote the introduction...:

    Quote Originally Posted by OSRIC Introduction and Purpose

In creating this new "artistic presentation," we have made use of the System Reference Document produced by Wizards of the Coast, Inc.
    OSRIC is available at http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/osric/

    Check it out, and if you like it, pass the word.

    Discussion about OSRIC and Q&A about the rules are ongoing on The Delver's Dungeon @ http://www.thedelversdungeon.com/forums/, The Knights & Knaves Alehouse @ http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/phpbb/index.php, and Dragonsfoot @ www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/index.php.

    Whoa ... thanks Grodog.

    Should add something after posting: this is a useful "all-in-one" sourcebook of many tables and such of early rp'ing stuff especially helpful for those who do CONVERSIONS. Good stuff.

    Very cool, IMO. I hope we'll soon see some adventures and supplements using OSRIC; I could make use of them.

    Apparently my pop up blocker interferes with the download because it blocks an ad every time and then fails to find the server for the download.

    Would someone please e-mail it to me? I have a 20 Meg limit, so hopefully it is smaller than that.

    b o r z o i a d d i c t @ yahoo . com

    Thanks!

    Firing it your way Treebore. It's about 1mb in size, so everything should be fine.

    You might also try a right-click Save As if your pop-up blocker is getting in the way.
