The True OSR – Obsolete Shi**y Rules - ENG
by Edward [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/13/2024 22:40:25

Originally posted at www.throatpunchgames.com, a new idea every day!

Product- The True OSR – Obsolete Shiy Rules System- The True OSR – Obsolete Shiy Rules Producer- Tin Hat games Price- $25.00 here https://www.drivethrurpg.com/en/product/454627/the-true-osr-obsolete-shi-y-rules-eng?affiliate_id=658618
TL; DR-What the hell just happened? 87%

Basics- Why don’t we fight about the rules! OSR is to RPG as metal is to music. OSR is an EXTREME rules light RPG. Let’s break this down.

Base Mechanics- This is a d10 based system. You want to do a thing? Roll a d10 and add a bonus from the associated statistics. You get a 6, you succeed! Or not, if the Master(GM) decides the number is higher, or if he or she is just mad that day! This is a rules based game, but not the kind of game where there are many rules.

Combat- Combat is quick and simple. All characters roll initiative. Then in initiative order, you get 2 actions. Actions are moving, attacks, reloading, and anything else you might want to do. When you do an action, you can make it heroic by spending XP and roll on an epic table where you may be awesome or completely fail!

And honestly that's it!

Mechanics or Crunch- This is an interesting one that might be too streamlined! The game is VERY theme heavy and rules light. It might be so rules light that new players might not know how to play, much like early DnD needing a friend to bring you into the cult because the rules were so obscure. That said, it aims to be very punk forward and rules light. And in that it succeeds. What this book does have that is amazing is over 100 pages of random tables full of crazy things for the players to interact with. However, I feel that the rules-light nature hurts it a bit when new players are learning what the hell is happening! 4/5

Theme or Fluff- You can say many things about OSR, but you cannot say it has no theme. This book oozes theme. It’s like hitting a rock concert after hard drugs in a spray painted van. Every page is full of crazy things, art, and words. It is an assault on the reader how much is going on on each page-in a fun way! 5 /5

Execution- This is a good book with one unforgivable sin. This is a fun book, but not a book that honestly reads easily. I “think” I know how to play by reading, but the layout makes following everything a bit hard. There is amazing stuff here, but the disorder overshadows the text. It honestly verges on the distracting sometimes. Also, there are multiple random characters, but I wonder if those are pregens or NPCs. Does it matter? This book also doesn't have an adventure. Give me an adventure to play out of the box please! 4/5

Summary- Someone once said, hippies were mean people cosplaying as nice people and metalheads are nice people cosplaying as mean people. This book feels like that. The book is a full-on assault on the senses, but it's fun. The layout of the rules are kind of all over the place and hard to follow but they are there. Also, they, meaning the author, the rules, or even the community of OSR players, don't care if you use them or not. It's more about crazy gonzo fun. And that is where the book succeeds. This is pure grab your buds, hope you played right, but if you had fun you had fun! It is not balanced in any way, nor is it any sort of guidance in how to run the game. But that’s not the kind of game this is. If you want some even-more-crazy-than-DCCRPG old school tabletop fun, then give OSR a try. If you need even a hint of structure, then this might not be for you. 87%

The True OSR – Obsolete Shi**y Rules - ITA
by Silvano [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/05/2023 09:21:38

Avete presente l'ultima volta che vi siete seduti al tavolo e vi stava vedendo il tetano tagliandovi su quel rail-roading arrugginito su cui vi ha piazzato il master? Questo gioco vi chiude la ferita graffettandola e vi da in mano "Una valida opzione di vendetta" (1d20+17 danni da cestino). Prendete tutto ciò che i GDR NON dovrebbero rappresentare e fateci un GDR. Avrete questo capolavoro fra le mani, che passerà il tempo a gridarvi nelle orecchie "TIRA QUEL SACCHETTO DELL'UMIDO IN FIAMME!" quando il master deciderà di prendere decisioni arbitrarie su cosa fa il vostro PG.

Un ambientazione che prende a schiaffi e calci ogni possibile interpretazione dell'opera, che si presenta per quello è: trash così sublime che fa il giro, tira un coppino e diventa capolavoro. Degna di essere giocata fino in fondo (preferibilmente nel Blocco D di un carcere)

Complete b****it, they don't even explain what an rpg is. That's not how it should be done.

The title of the game says it all. The sickstart doesn't even tell you that you use a d10 for checks in the section that talks about it. It's mentioned down on the bottom of the page in text that is written sideways so you have to crane your neck to read it. How horrible.

This game shows promise, but sadly, they went Mork Borg's way of "hey, let's puke on every page instead of working on our layout"...
