My long time gaming friend +Rob Conley wrote a post of how he would explain the OSR to a novice. His explanation is accurate, but I think too long. If I was a novice and someone was explaining something to me I would have glazed over.
So my challenge to you dear questioneers, how would YOU explain the OSR to someone?
I think mine would be and this is off the top of my head.
OSR is old D&D. When it was more about being inventive than knowing the rules. Just grab some dice, if you don't have any I've got a mound of them. You make up a character and we start playing. If you want to do something let me know and we'll figure it out. The only three rules I have in my game are, 1. Don't be a dick. 2. Have fun. 3. The last coke in the fridge is always mine.
So how would you bring someone over to the OSR side?
