There are a couple of things that have always bugged me about PbtA games, and I don't consider myself a particularly good OSR referee. I'm not a huge WoDu fan. This seems to take much of what I like from both the indie rpg community and OSR, and mash them together.

However, what I like about VoD after reading the rules:

  • PbtA dice rolling is something I like, especially as an improv-heavy GM
  • The OSR philosophy (heavy on the "GM is the adjudicator" / rulings, not rules, brutal, zero to hero, player skill over character skill, etc)
  • Not having attributes and instead just using trait tags (strong, brutal, magical adept etc) to add bonuses (aptitude) 
  • Rolling once for an attack and its damage (you take the lowest die and add the aptitude)
  • Building your own class/trope (which I know some OSR games do) seems super easy (though perhaps limited at the moment)
  • XP for kills, social interactions, treasure
  • Compatible (mostly) with OSR modules, if that's you're thing
