As you may know, we were a retail backer for Necrotic Gnome’s amazing Old School Essentials (or OSE) black box. A critically acclaimed modular retro-clone, OSE is a highly polished, 100% accurate restatement of the beloved 1981 Basic / Expert rules. Its editing and layout remain unrelentingly focused on ease of use during play. They took our beloved roleplaying game of old, dusted it off and refreshed it for today!
We kept tabs with Necrotic Gnome after the Kickstarter and noticed they continued to produce amazing items. However, Necrotic Gnome is based in Berlin, Germany which causes some issues – especially in shipping. As Necrotic Gnome’s Gavin Norman hasn’t set up a US distributor yet things became even more problematic. However, some of our customers told us they really wanted more OSE products so we decided to press the issue. Problems? Nothing a two handed sword couldn’t handle! Well, maybe not a two handed sword at all but some back and forth communication…not as dramatic but more efficient in this case 😀
Listed below are the soon-to-be-available products with projected pricing. We should be placing the products on our shelves in about a week. Once we open it up in the shop we will alert everyone again. We will categorize them in our Roleplaying Games portion of the store under its own section – Old School Essentials. We will continue working with Gavin for future products as well!
