Cavalier Attitude zine (Volume II, Issue 2)

I am very pleased to announce the release of my twenty-second book, the fourth issue of my Old School fantasy role-playing zine, "CAVALIER ATTITUDE". It is available for purchase right now in PDF format!

The fourth issue’s contents include the following: an article introducing the WARRIOR MONK, a medieval western monk character; an article detailing SHADOW GNOMES an evil sub-race of gnomes who dwell in the Under-Realm; an exclusive OSR adventure, “THE CRYSTAL TAVERN”: a hardscrabble hostelry in the Under-Realm; along with our standard features (art from my modules, synopsis of my recent releases, a group of 6 Pre-Generated PXs/NPCs, and a social media round-up).

Cavalier Attitude focuses on the Old School Revival in fantasy role-playing. It will focus on OSRIC, my retro-clone of choice, but it will also cover other Old School games systems. The zine is published quarterly.

The latest and prior issues will also always be available here for regular purchase, so if you missed any you will always be able to purchase back issues.

Volume II, Issue 1


Welcome to the fourth issue of my webzine: Cavalier Attitude. As the masthead says, this zine will focus on the Old School Revival (OSR) in fantasy role-playing. The Oldschool System Reference and Index Compilation™ (OSRIC) is my personal retro-clone of choice, but I will cover other games systems as well, as interest and time permit.

The zine is publishing quarterly. The first issue was published in September 2017.

The fourth issue’s contents include the following highlights:

  • Warrior Monks: an article on the introduction of Medieval Western Monks as PCs in Old School Games.
  • Shadow Gnomes: an article detailing an evil sub-race of gnomes, fooled into service to a dark master who forces them deep into the bowels of the world!
  • 6 pre-generated player characters: a group of PCs ready to take on whatever your GM’s campaign can dish out.
  • An Exclusive OSR adventure, "The Crystal Tavern": a hardscrabble hostelry composed of four enormous pieces of crystal, which lies along a well-traveled trade route in the dangerous bowels of the world: the Under-Realm
  • Old School art: a showcase of Old School art, by myself and others, which are features in my published books.
  • Market Square: synopses and information on my recently published books.
  • The Inn: a roundup of role-playing social media posts.


    Future issues will also include fantasy fiction by myself and others; background information and additional areas for adventure for those GM’s setting their campaigns in my ever expanding campaign world; one-page modules and encounters; DM’s tips and rules discussions; miniature painting galleries and guides; interviews with authors and other makers in the RPG community; and much more!

    This zine is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere! Thanks for checking us out!
