Welcome to the sixth issue of my Old School zine: 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 sixth issue’s contents include the following highlights:
Out of Alignment: an article on player character alignment changes and how to handle them.
Bard’s Corner: a new feature being introduced in this issue, which will showcase fantasy fiction with an RPG theme, by myself and others. The first story is “Death Comes to Blackrock."
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!
Pre-generated player character: a special pre-generated player character ready to take on whatever your GM’s campaign can dish out.
An Exclusive OSR adventure, "The Icy Hollow": a winter-themed adventure which takes place in an abandoned dwarven keep lying in a frigid mountain clearing, known as the Icy Hollow. This mid-level adventure features a new holiday themed monster, the SNOW DEMI-ELEMENTAL (a very bad snowman). It is compatible with most FRPGs and is intended for 4-6 player characters of levels 4-6.
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.
