What’s O.L.D. is N.E.W.ENworld contributed this strong collection featuring EN Publishing’s What’s O.L.D. is N.E.W., a system of three crunchy, tactical, toolkit-oriented RPGs designed by Russ “Morrus” Morrissey: O.L.D.

Using the extensive tools in each book, you can easily create your own races, lifepath careers, planets, freeform spell-paths, starships, strongholds, martial arts, and monsters. Focus on one genre, or mix-and-match them to create urban fantasy, cyberpunk, or spells-in-space.
