A home for Old School gamers

Hello! I'm Louis "sirlou" Kahn and I'm interested in providing you with adventures and gaming supplements that hearken back to the days of yore (the late 1970's), and helping you recapture the passion and excitement you felt the first time you played a role-playing game!


News: The Return of Krampus

December 2018: It's the holiday season once again, and our old friend Krampus is back to to his old tricks in 2018! I'm happy to announce the release of my thirty-second OSR book, SO12 RETURN OF KRAMPUS! It is available now as a PDF. This book is a scary, holiday themed one-shot adventure intended for a group of 4-6 players of levels 4th to 6th level. It is my twelfth one-shot adventure and the fourth adventure to take place in the newly introduce expansion area of The Dales, the ancestral home of the halflings, gnomes and dwarves in my campaign world!

This adventure takes place in and around Kharn Deepcrag, a dwarven community located in a mountain fastness in the southern area of The Dales. The excitement begins when your players are asked to investigate an attack on a dwarven community. The foes attacked under cover of darkness and made off with some with priceless treasures: the dwarves' bairns and a sacred relic, the Hammer of Klan’garadrum.

The dwarves task your players with finding the dwarven children taken captive by the demonic Krampus, defeating the fiend and his evil deep dwarf minions, and finding the sacred dwarven hammer which they stole; all before the sun rises and the children and the sacred hammer are taken down to the Hells, never to be seen again!.

News: Cavalier Attitude, Vol. II, Issue 4

December 2018: I am really pleased to announce the release of my thirty-first book and the sixth issue of my Old School zine: Cavalier Attitude, Vol. 2, Issue 4. It is available for purchase right now in PDF format!

The sixth issue’s contents include the following:
  • Out of Alignment: an article on player character alignment changes and how to handle them.
  • Bard’s Corner: a new feature being introduced in this issue, which will showcase fantasy fiction with an RPG theme, by myself and others. The first story is “Death Comes to Blackrock."
  • Magickal Menagerie: a new feature being introduced in this issue, which provides new and unique magic items for your players, straight from the pages of my published adventures!
  • Pre-generated player character: a special pre-generated player character ready to take on whatever your GM’s campaign can dish out.
  • An Exclusive OSR adventure, "The Icy Hollow": a winter-themed adventure which takes place in an abandoned dwarven keep lying in a frigid mountain clearing, known as the Icy Hollow. This mid-level adventure features a new holiday themed monster, the SNOW DEMI-ELEMENTAL (a very bad snowman). It is compatible with most FRPGs and is intended for 4-6 player characters of levels 4-6.
  • Old School art: a showcase of art, by myself and others, which are features in my published books;
  • Market Square: synopses and information on my recently published books; and
  • The Inn: a roundup of role-playing social media posts.

News: Krampus for OSR

DECEMBER 2018: I am very excited to announce the release of my thirtieth book, and my first "monster supplement", SM1 KRAMPUS FOR OSR. It is available for purchase right now in PDF format!

This supplement contains a full monster listing (a la the Monster Manual) for Krampus, which should be compatible with most OSR retro-clones. I believed many GMs running OSR games would enjoy having a ready-made OSR version of Krampus to drop into their own campaigns at the holidays, especially the many of you who do not like to run pre-made scenarios, so I decided to release this version of the beast for your use and enjoyment!

This version of Krampus is easily modified to challenge players of any level by merely adjusting his hit dice and hit points. This book features a full OSR statistical listing and description for Krampus, along with historical background information and illustrations of the beastie.

News: Mad Madrigan's Maze

DECEMBER 2018: I am truly pleased to announce the release of my twenty-ninth book, and my eleventh one-shot adventure, the module  SO11 MAD MADRIGAN'S MAZE. It is currently available for purchase now in PDF format!

In this one-shot module your players face their imminent demise, trapped in a mad gnome illusionist’s maze! Lured to the maze by a treasure map and rumours of great fortunes and powerful magick, the players soon become prisoners in Mad Madrigan’s underground maze.

The entire dungeon is on lock-down: the only known exit cannot be reopened and the entire place has been ensorcelled so teleportation, æthereal and dimensional spells all fizzle out and fail. The only way the players are getting out is by finding the exit the old fashioned way, dungeon delving!

Intended for 4 - 6 player characters of levels 4 to 6, this adventure will test whether or not your players can best the beasts and puzzles of Mad Madrigan’s Maze.
