    Episode 42: Original Dungeons & Dragons, Edited by Greyharp

    Episode 42: Original Dungeons & Dragons, Edited by Greyharp

    One of the biggest complaints about Original (little brown book) D&D is that it’s difficult to understand because of layout and order. Not to mention it frequently refers to stuff in Chainmail—sold separately! Never fear, Greyharp has come to the rescue with this sorta-kinda-but-not-really retroclone of the original game. Layout corrections, rules organization, and actual […]

    It’s finals time at the Halfling Hideaway, and we’d probably do well if we weren’t so busy fighting supernatural evil. Yes, it’s cool hijinks and eldritch horror combined in the Savage World supplement East Texas University by 12 to Midnight, Inc. As 3 of your 4 Halflings grew up in ETX, we have opinions. So […]

Keep em coming!

I love the review format and discussion on various games. Especially OSR related products. How about Lamentations of the Flame Princess? Godbound or Stars without Number? Or Old School Essentials (when it ships in October)?

Would be 5 stars if the discussion wasn’t constantly derailed by random bad jokes. But this is likely just personal preference.

Great OSR-ish podcast!

I follow a half-dozen RPG podcasts but just discovered this one, and have already listened to five episodes in three days. I love the mix of personalities and viewpoints, but they don’t overwhelm the listener with inside jokes and idle chit chat that are common in too many podcasts.

Episodes available again…
