This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at Gavin Norman and Necrotic Gnome’s Old-School Essentials, a modular restatement of the 1981 Basic/Expert Dungeons & Dragons rules. This is about as perfect a set of old school rules as we’ve encountered – light, fast, streamlined, concise and polished to gleaming. After reading it, we’re not sure we need any more retro clones or hacks.
