FOSSIL Booklets and new Mapping Pads

Mon, 04/30/2018 - 11:58
Hot on the heels of Black Pudding Issue 4, which landed last week. I now have the print copies of the FOSSIL B/X Character Generation booklets. They cost £1 each, or you can buy 3 for £2, or 10 for £5. This makes them cheap enough to buy in bulk and give one to each player to keep.

You may find them here:

Also new to the site are 3 new DL sized (210mm x 99mm) paper pads:

FOSSIL B/X Character Generation Booklet

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 11:29
FOSSIL (Fantasy Old School System Index Lite) is a bare bones OSR system that is roughly compatible with B/X rules and retroclones (the rules have parity with Labyrinth Lord). This first booklet covers character generation and advancement.
The booklet is just 12 small pages (landscape DL 210x105mm) yet includes everything needed to generate and equip a B/X character. It also includes advancement rules to tenth level, combat and damage tables, full descriptions for first level cleric and magic-user spells, and a blank character sheet.
There are two versions of the PDF. The first one gives clerics a spell at first level. Whereas the second one gives clerics their first spell at second level and follows strict B/X spell progression for clerics thereafter. Otherwise they are identical.
Professionally printed copies of this booklet will be available from Squarehex.co.uk in April 2018. I hope to include a sticker with each printed copy that will allow the alternate cleric spell advancement to added as an option. My aim with the printed edition is to make it very low cost so that a GM can give out a copy to each player at the table for minimum outlay.
Work on the second booklet with Game Mastering rules is underway. Following that there will be a Spells booklet and possibly a Monsters booklet. In addition there is also my B/X Monster Reference Index which is already available in print and PDF.

The PDF cost $1 from RPGNOW.com: http://www.rpgnow.com/product/237131/FOSSIL-B-X-Character-Generation
