Volume III, Issue 1


Welcome to the First issue of the Third Volume 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, this is our seventh issue.

The sixth issue’s contents include the following:

  • Felony Murder Hobos: Law and Order in Medieval Campaigns: an article on applying legal system in your fantasy role playing campaign.
  • Bard’s Corner: a feature showcasing fantasy fiction with an RPG theme, by myself and others. The story in this issue is entitled “Prue’s Fate".
  • Magickal Menagerie: a feature wherein we provide new and unique magic items for your players, straight from the pages of my published adventures!
  • Pre-generated player character: a set of six pre-generated player character ready to take on whatever your GM’s campaign can dish out. This issue features our new landscape character sheet format, which we hope you enjoy!
  • An Exclusive OSR adventure, "The Blood Moon": a lycanthrope-themed OSR adventure which takes place at a ransacked farm a few short miles outside civilization, known as the Humbill House. This mid-level adventure features a set of three new lycans, the WEREWEASEL, WEREJACKAL and WERELION. It is compatible with most FRPGs and is intended for 4-6 player characters of levels 4-6.
  • BONUS HANDOUT: A full-page sized handout of the map for the Humbill House farmstead for use with the BLOOD MOON adventure.
  • Old School art: a showcase of art, by myself and others, which are features in my 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!
