Links

Distracted as I am, I must confess that I haven't done a very good job in keeping up with what new old school blogs, forums, and sites might have sprung up in recent months. So, if you know of any that I haven't included in my "Links of Interest," make a comment here and let me know. I can't guarantee I'll put all the suggestions people make on my list, but I'll pit as many as I think appropriate. For good or ill, lots of people use this page to find other old school sites, so I feel a certain obligation to ensure its links are kept reasonably up to date. I've just been so busy lately -- and likely will be for some time -- that, like my correspondence, I've let this slip more than I ought to have.

Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. I'll pimp The Mule Abides, muleabides.wordpress.com, without modesty since it features valuable insights by fellow NYC gamers in addition to my own vapid scribblings.

  6. well, here's mine. I just started it a few days ago, though. However, I've been working on the setting for a long time and have loads of stuff to put up in the very near future.

  7. Nothing to add to the pot as such, but I will say I just added several of the above blogs to my own blogroll, 150+ and growing. Always good to find new pastures to graze.

  8. http://grimmhaus.blogspot.com/ This is my blog which covers S&W and my thoughts on gaming. Also has some thoughts on 'Old School' from the perspective of one that wasn't there in the old days and has sometimes different views from the movement.

  9. As long as we are all shamelessly self-promoting:

    http://rustybattleaxe.blogspot.com/

    Content: C&C, occasional reviews (just did DFD and will be doing a BHP product soon), and haiku featuring AD&D 1e monsters

    It is hard to keep up. New blogs spring up, some established ones fizzle...

  10. Here are some respectable suggestions:

    http://savageafterworld.blogspot.com/

    http://darkheritage.blogspot.com/

    Both would be worthy additions. I can't in good conscience nominate my own amateurish blog. Then again.

  11. I'll throw my blog in there. Started as a 3rd. edition campaign, but it's evolved into a Labyrinth Lord site as I get more into that edition of the game.

    Lotsa minis too.

  12. Jim Raggi's suggestion is a given to have in the blogroll, rigth?

    Otherwise I guess I can do like everyone else and suggest my own.

  13. Also "A Paladin in Citadel"--a Canadian, stout OSR-type, and Lord of the Mini-Games.

  14. I shall indulge my self. You will find my AD&D/Old School Blog (called "there is a bugbear in my kitchen") at
    http://hobbitualoffenders.blogspot.com/

  15. Oo! I second Paladin's blog--I thought that one was already on there.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I support the recommendations of "A Paladin in Citadel" and "B/X Blackrazor".

    These are also quite good:

    Havard's Blackmoor blog:
    http://blackmoormystara.blogspot.com/

    Tran Eskoor an Doon:
    http://quietdayinheimdall.blogspot.com/

    Telecanter's Receding Rules:
    http://recedingrules.blogspot.com/

    And then there is my own modest blog:
    http://akraticwizardry.blogspot.com/

    I'm sure that I'm forgetting a few, but I must dash now.

  17. One last one: http://monsterbrains.blogspot.com/

    More beastly depictions than you can swing a broadsword at!

    Be sure to check out the archives...

  19. I'm looking forward to going through all the links being posted to find more old school blogs. My DnD category in Google Reader keeps running out of stuff to read...

    Might as well mention my own blog: The Nine and Twenty Kingdoms. Mostly a discussion of random fantasy content generators I'm preparing and suggested rules variants.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ugh, somehow, the link got messed up. Oh, wait, I see what I did. I forgot the actual name of my blog. The Nine and Thirty Kingdoms, not "Nine and Twenty".

    Dammit

  21. I totally would have nominated Rusty (Battleaxe) if he hadn't nominated himself...his haiku are great fun!

  22. I guess I'd better add mine, although I'm off for a month noveling, and haven't blogged that much yet overall.

  23. Damn it, you guys! It already takes a full 12 count to scroll all the way through my game related favorites.
    I can't click this many times in a day. The OSR is gonna give me carpal tunnel.

  24. Engines & Empires --

  25. I'll pimp myself and my blog about a variety of games, including AD&D and Traveller.

  26. http://swordsofathanor.blogspot.com/

    certainly deserves a mention.

  27. I was kicking myself for forgetting to point out Zak's excellent blog, and am pleased to see that Jim corrected this omission!

  28. Lord Gwydion, this is Jean Wells. Are you sure I created a three headed giant hermaphordite? Was he naked? Oh please say he had some clothes on. Lord that just doesn't sound in the least bit like me, but if I did ... I wonder where my head was at?

    James, do you know where to find the old Sage Advice columns? I'd be interested in looking at them after 30 years of absence.

  29. www.lamarcadeleste.com

    Spain's number 1 old school blog. With hundreds of visit each day and more than 150 followers.

  30. @Jean: THE Jean Wells?!

    Jean, I just savaged an old Sage Advice column on my blog!

    If you are looking for copies of the old Sage Advice columns, i'd be happy to scan and pdf a few onto my blog, or otherwise help in any scanning project, as I do have a small collection of old Dragon magazines.

    I love those old Sage Advice columns, they reveal the mind of a subset of early D&D hobbyists.
