Release New OSE-Licensed E-Zine Available!

Notable Novices and Notorious Newcomers is the third PWYW zine in the Axian Zines series, officially licensed for Old-School Essentials.
It includes three tools:
The first is the "Who are you?" table, to quickly roll a reason why the party is eager to welcome a new member!
The second is "What's your story?", and provides the previous adventuring career of freshly rolled characters that start the game as level 2 or higher.
The third determines the magic items they've looted during such adventures, and has different outcomes based on character class.

While the "Who Are You?" table is a simple d20 table, the tables for higher level characters have a specific mechanic: you make a roll for every level, adding each level to the roll. So, for example, for a 6th level character, you roll six times: 1d20, +1, 1d20+2, 1d20+3, 1d20+4, 1d20+5, and 1d20+6.
For this reason, both tables take into account the 14 level limit of Old-School Essentials and thus go up to 34 results.

Notable Novices and Notorious Newcomers is already available and is Pay What You Want, so go and check it!
