OSRIC and Dangerous Dungeons

Some good news for old-school gamers! Thanks to ‘Pres-Gas’, there is now a Wiki for OSRIC (Old School Reference and Index Compilation)—the ‘retro-clone’ for 1st edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.

Also available: the material for Dangerous Dungeons! For over a decade now Kellri has been putting together a massive supplement for OSRIC (+ 1e AD&D). I wasn’t sure if it would ever be made available to the wider public—but now it is! (I made a small contribution to DD: a system of ‘background professions’ for characters, originally posted at this blog.)

Enjoy, gentle readers!

  1. Weirdly coincidental... my late grandmother thought "Dangerous Dungeons" was the name of the game I used to play with my friends on Sundays. (It was the big black box with the red dragon on the front.)

    Anyway, thanks for posting the links.I haven't had any good OSRIC stuff to look over in quite some time.

  2. Thanks for the post! I am very happy to host the wiki and hope to have more goodies appear along with some formatting cleanup.
