Old School and Cool vol 1


In terms of tone, it goes all out! Crazy ideas balanced with good mechanical design. The over-the-top classes all make sense mechanically…My thoughts can be broadly categorized into:’I’d love to throw this at my friends in our game.’ or ‘I’d love to show this to my friend so he can make use of it when he DMs (and I can play an Augur).’ – Third Eye Openers

[I]t has consistent art, varied content, and is a pool of ideas to pick and choose for your games at an affordable price…With a stroke of luck we will get future issues of Old School & Cool.” – The Man with a Hammer

Old School & Cool is a bad-ass zine made from angry spirits and bad dreams by the folks at Knight Owl Publishing. Why? Because we thought that Zine Quest was awesome and we have a lot of cool stuff to share with you!

Think of this zine as a set of herbs and spices. You can sprinkle in a bunch and make your game super tasty or just add a dash for a bit of that highlight flavor. It’s your game and you can decide how you want it to taste.

Included inside:

  • 10 bizarre new classes
  • 34 OSR feats
  • 9 new spells
  • 4 Inn menus
  • 10 new types of inns
  • 10 adventurer’s packs
  • 800,00 NPCs
  • 1 space lich
  • 4 magic items
  • 2 dwarven poems

This is very COOL and very fun! I will be using roughly 75% of this content in my own games. I would definitely like to see more of these!

Glad to hear it. Vol 2 is coming out later this year--it's kind of the same thing but for a post-apocalyptic setting.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
