In February 2021 we presented Old School Cool, a new offer with stylish takes on the Old School Revival spirit of roleplaying’s earliest days. This offer presented Ben Dutter’s Vagabonds of Dyfed and Dortoka, Hypertellurians from Mottokrosh Machinations, Diogo Nogueira’s rules-light Sharp Swords / Solar Blades / Dark Streets games, and more.
There were five titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $33) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including Vagabonds of Dyfed; Sofinho’s psychedelic proto-Neolithic animist Old-School RPG Pariah; Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells and its Addendum rules expansion, and the Iron Age comics vigilante RPG Fallen Justice.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $56.50, including the lavish pulp science-fantasy RPG Hypertellurians, the Vagabonds campaign sourcebook Dortoka: City on the Sea of Glass, Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells (and its campaign-changing adventure The Egyptian Situation), and Dark Streets & Darker Secrets (plus its GM Screen and the anarcho-punk vampire supplement Streets of Blood).
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
