A Request for Help, OSR Links and lots of them.

I am giving a panel presentation on Swords & Wizardry and the OSR in general at ErieCon 2010 this Saturday. I am going to hand out a CD filled with various OSR rulesets (those that are free to distribute), and other freebies (S&W Quick Start, etc).

What I like to also include a html page with a comprehensive set of links to all things OSR (blogs, websites, etc). The OSR has grown just large enough that I will miss something if I just do it myself. So in the comment section post any links you got and I will compile them into the HTML file. I will post the page on Wednesday for a final look over by the general readership and start burning CDs on Thrusday. I probably will take two dozen or so with me.

I will see about upload an iso of the CD along with the cover I create so if anybody else has an opportunity for distributing free handouts they can grab it and burn a couple of copies.

Thanks
Rob

Here's our audio recording of an "Old School" Dungeon adventure.

Expedition to the Ancient Academy

It might be helpful for introducing new people to that style of play. :)

Hm, a list of blogs, you say? I've tried collecting them on the Old School RPG Planet. Maybe a good starting point?

My blog, The Nine and Thirty Kingdoms, focuses on ways of improvising details and re-using a couple simple rules to flesh out 0e and other old school games. Basically, it's my houserule brainstorming spot. Includes monsters, magic items, and one-page dungeons I created using random/improvised techniques.

Remember to include a link to Kellri's blog, even if it's not active, because of the old school resource PDFs linked there.

Hi, I don't know if it is in your area of interest, but I have a blog dedicated to the OSR. But I'm from Brazil, and it's in portuguese: http://www.vorpal.com.br

And also there's also the page of Old Dragon, Brazil's first old school RPG: http://www.olddragon.com.br

Dear Rob - please include my blog, The Sandbox of Doom. I also think that TARGA would be more than willing to be a host for the ISO that you put together - please let me know; thanks!

Hey! I'm running an S&W game earlier in the day at the con (high noon 'til four) and am excited to hear about your panel. I'm giving away digest-sized copies of the quick start as well. If I play my cards right, I may be able to make it for your game Sat. Shoot me an e-mail, if you're so inclined...
