Old-School Essentials is an adventure role-playing game of exploration, danger, monsters, and magic. The game is intentionally rules-light, putting the focus of play on imagination, improvisation, and fun. The rules are optimized for ease of use at the table, with meticulous attention to wording and layout clarity. What’s more, Old-School Essentials is 100% compatible with the classic Basic/Expert game from 1981, meaning that decades of adventure are at your fingertips. The Advanced Fantasy addition adds reams of exciting content inspired by the ever-popular Advanced 1st Edition rules. All that delicious esoteric 1970s flavor you crave is here — assassins, poisons, drow, half-orcs, mimics, xorns, vorpal swords, ioun stones… even the dreaded tarrasque! More classes, more magic, more monsters, more options. All 100% compatible with the Basic/Expert rules and presented in the familiar Old-School Essentials style.
Old-School Essentials Advanced Fantasy: Referee’s Tome contains a massive bestiary of over 300 monsters, extensive encounter tables, a hoard of over 300 magic items, advice on refereeing, and guidelines for creating adventures. In conjunction with the Advanced Player’s Tome, it’s everything a referee needs.
This Advanced Fantasy Referee’s Tome also includes all monsters and magic items from the Classic Fantasy Rules Tome.
There are two basic paths with the Old School Essentials books. One path, like this product set, combines individual books into Tomes, and the other path keeps subject matter separated into individual books. This is beneficial for several reasons. Primarily, single Tomes are great for an individual. However, when in a group it is often easier to share individual books with folks so they can find what they are looking for. We like to keep the Tome with the Referee and the individual books available to share with groups members. Also, those individual books show off more of that amazing Old School Essentials art!
