Old-School Essentials (OSE) is an adventure roleplaying game of exploration, danger, monsters, and magic. The game is intentionally rules light, putting the focus of play on imagination, improvisation, and fun. Published by Necrotic Gnome, 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, the most popular edition of the game among connoisseurs of the old-school.


There are a few developments pertaining to our Old School Essentials products. First, there is a new North American distributor standing up to handle our future supply. Unfortunately, the Old School Essentials products come from Europe, which has a ban on all shipments to the US at this time. So, until that opens we will be very limited on stock. Once it does open up, we will have to wait for the US distributor to get on their feet before we receive our products. If you would like to be informed on updates, please let us know at [email protected] and we will add you to our OSE Distro List.
