    The PDF needs a 2 in the name so people don't overwrite old versions if they prefer to keep them.

    then they'll just have to do what I did. Add "2.0" to the save name before clicking on save.


    No, I hadn't known. Thanks!

    Can somebody tell me about OSRIC? I never actually played 1e AD&D, so I don't have much to compare it to.

    It effectively is the 1e AD&D rules stripped of the art and other copyright exclusive material. As far as I can tell, it is the full treatment, everything one might need to run a defacto AD&D 1e game.

    It was created so that the game could be played, and new material could be written without worry about infringement, because the OSRIC mechanics could be referenced instead of the actual AD&D books. A better explanation can be found within the pdf in the intro section.

    cheers

    Plus there are lots of new adventures and other supplements written for it. Many by Expeditious Retreat Press.

    So... what's the 2.0 for? Is this, like, OSRIC, 2nd Edition? Will we see kits soon?

    *only half joking*

    OSRIC 2.0 is essentially designed to stand on it's own (1.0 was a toolkit for publishers to use for supporting 1E AD&D). They did a gorgeous job on it, tool

    I picked it up. Looks good. Apparently I had something to do with it!
