  • Delving into OSR: Old-School Essentials

    A couple of weeks ago I made my first ever trip into the dark, dank dungeons of Old-School Revival gaming with Necrotic Gnome’s Old-School Essentials. I returned a little wiser and a little more informed, but I can confidently state that I still don’t get it.
