More OSR Musings AKA "A Weight has been lifted"
I've also posted briefly about going thru my campaign settings, and have come to the conclusion that is just better to write something yourself. That being said, before I feel asleep last night, I came up with about 10 scenarios for low level PC's starting out. I need to draw up the map region, and little town, and get started drawing up some dungeons!
The little nuggets I've learned have given me the following conclusions;
1st. make rulings
2. Steal great ideas! Why try to come up with a name for an evil god, when there's one sitting right there in the FR setting.
3. Need an idea for an adventure, there are tons out there, go ahead, take it run with it, modify it to your heart's content.
I think those 3 things are the essence of OSR.
My plan is after spending some time playing a very combat heavy game to switch it up to more of a role playing game, and the only way for me to do it properly and make it believable is to write it myself.
This guy blogged exactly what I was just thinking!
