Welcome to the fifth issue of my webzine: Cavalier Attitude. As the masthead says, this zine will focus on the Old School Revival (OSR) in fantasy role-playing. The Oldschool System Reference and Index Compilation™ (OSRIC) is my personal retro-clone of choice, but I will cover other games systems as well, as interest and time permit. The zine is publishing quarterly. The first issue was published in September 2017.
The fifth issue’s contents include the following highlights:
The Scout Class: an article on the introduction of Military Specialists and Foresters as PCs in Old School Games.
Handy Haversack: an article detailing my take on what every player character should carry in their backpack, and how to simplify getting “packed” for veterans and newbies alike!
Magickal Menagerie: a new feature being introduced in this issue, which provides new and unique magic items for your players, straight from the pages of my published adventures!
6 Pre-generated player characters: a group of PCs ready to take on whatever your GM’s campaign can dish out.
An Exclusive OSR adventure, "The Dark Chanterie": a magically sealed stone door has stood at the base of the nearby cliffs for time immemorial. Beyond the door is an ancient shrine, the so called Dark Chanterie. Rumours abound about the great dangers and treasure hidden within; but the door has remained inviolate against might of arms and magic…until now! A high level adventure for 4 to 6 players of levels 12-16.
Old School art: a showcase of art, by myself and others, which are features in my published books;
Market Square: synopses and information on my recently published books; and
The Inn: a roundup of role-playing social media posts.
