Cavalier Attitude zine (Volume II, Issue 3)

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

The fifth issue’s contents include the following: an article introducing the SCOUT class of Military Specialists and Foresters as PCs in OSR games; the Handy Haversack, an article detailing my take on the best ready-made adventuring backpack; the Magickal Menagerie, a new feature detailing new and unique magic items for your campaign; and an EXCLUSIVE One-Page adventure, The Dark Chanterie (for 4 to 6 players of levels 12-16.); along with our standard features (art from my modules, synopsis of my recent releases, a group of 6 Pre-Generated PCs/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 3

Volume II, Issue 1


Welcome to the fifth 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 fifth issue’s contents include the following highlights:

  • The Scout Class: an article on the introduction of Military Specialists and Foresters as PCs in Old School Games.
  • Handy Haversack: an article detailing my take on what every player character should carry in their backpack, and how to simplify getting “packed” for veterans and newbies alike!
  • 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!
  • 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 Dark Chanterie": a magically sealed stone door has stood at the base of the nearby cliffs for time immemorial. Beyond the door is an ancient shrine, the so called Dark Chanterie. Rumours abound about the great dangers and treasure hidden within; but the door has remained inviolate against might of arms and magic…until now! A high level adventure for 4 to 6 players of levels 12-16.
  • 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!
