Welcome to the Second Issue of the Third Volume of my Ols School zine: Cavalier Attitude. As the masthead says, this zine focuses 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, this is our eighth issue.
The eighth issue’s contents include the following highlights:
Loot Division: Methods for the Amicable Division of Treasure: an article discussing the always tricky issue of dividing treasure.
