Grognardia reviews OSRIC Unearthed

Grognardia, noted games designer James Maliszewski's blog covering the burgeoning old-school game scene has reviewed the OSRIC book I did, OSRIC Unearthed.

You can read the full review here.

The review is pretty positive. He basically concludes that the book is "Unearthed Arcana done right".

Given that UA is one of my all-time favorite game books and inspiration (along with Oriental Adventures) for the book, it's hard to not like that assessment.

Of course, the story of OSRIC Unearthed lies in the knowledge that many old-school gamers (like people playing OSRIC) have moved to earlier game editions precisely to AVOID books like this, which explains the mixed reactions it frequently garners.
