In Search Of: Go-to OSR Ruleset(s) for 2012

So I'm looking at the various Retro/Neo/Alterclones out there for several reasons:

(1) holidays are stressful;
(2) need moderate complexity ruleset for one Enigmundia subsetting;
(3) need light ruleset for the various OSR setting offerings out there (Carcosa, Weird Adventures, Blackmarsh, Vornheim, etc.).

It's fun looking through the ones I have and seeing which one fits my needs.

Of course, Lamentations of the Flame Princess is really begging to be purchased now... stupid collector's impulse.

  2. I meant to add that Randall's work is completely modular-if you like the 3.x Saving Throw it's there. If you like the old school saving throw it's there. Analog plug&play...snap the pieces together and go to it :)

  3. I believe Lamentations has a free download version you can check out first to see if it's really what you are looking for...
