About the community:

A Community for discussing old school table top gaming, particularly role playing games and miniatures games from the 70's and early 80's.

This is NOT an OSR/D&D community. 
Reason being that the OSR has a fantastically useful (and busy) google community already. 

The impetus for this community is that discussion of other "old school" games tends to get crowded out by the OSR. 
This is a place to discuss Traveller, Runequest, Rolemaster, Warhammer FRP, Laserburn, Starguard and many more. 

What kind of games are covered?
Principally role playing games and miniatures games.
Board games ala Squad Leader tend to already have their own communities.

What is "old school" ? 
Depends on your criteria but generally, a reasonable cut-off is about the late 80's with the release of Warhammer Fantasy Role Play and Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader.
It's really more about attitude than age: Open-ended games that emphasize creativity over adherence to purity. 

Any other rules?
D&D kindly belongs elsewhere.
Leave your politics at the door. 
Be pleasant.
