Old School Dungeons and Dragons Role Playing

OSRIC (Old School Reference & Index Compilation) offers a free fantasy role playing game inspired by first edition Dungeons and Dragons. It’s not the first effort I’ve seen trying to recapture the magic of 1st edition, before the life was sucked out of it with the bloated later editions.

The Fall of Gondolin Lord of the Rings Fan Supplement

The Fall of Gondolin is a fan written supplement for Games Workshop’s Lord fo the Rings Skirmish game. The author writes that the game

is set back in the First Age, before the treachery of Sauron and the forging of the great Rings of Power. Included within these pages are stats for mighty elven heroes named in the Silmarillion such as King Turgon and Tuor. There is the possibility of creating your own elven lords for each of the twelve houses of the Gondolindrim. The good side have the chance to wield battalions of the houses that make up Gondolin, each with their special trait. Like any decent supplement the evil side has not been forgotten, introducing mighty Fire Drakes and Balrog warriors to spice things up!

There are also twelve scenarios linked into a campaign format depicting the Gondolins Fall; narrated in four acts through the eyes of a surviving elf.

This is an excellent product.
