    No self publisher of RPG adventures should be without this book! Great book and wonderful game system. Thank you for making this! I've self published a lot of short stories and articles over the years and being a 1E gamer I wanted to self publish some RPGs too, but was always scared off by WoTC's OGL, the part where it says to not use any of their "product identity" stuff. I didn't know what that meant exactly. What stuff is "product identity"? What stuff is public domain? What stuff can us RPG self publishers us without getting in trouble with WoTC? I had no idea how to find out. Than I discovered OSRIC - 1E core rules with all the copyrighted "product identity" stuff striped out! I downloaded the free version, but than I started using it so much, that I realized it would be more to my advantage to have a hard copy to reference to instead. The quality is amazing, format, layout, illustrations, everything is professionally done (something buyers have to... More > worry about on many of LuLu printed books - there is so much out there not formatted!) OSRIC just looks amazing, it is evident that you put a lot of hard work and planning into this to get it done right. Best of all, it's so usable. I can use it for running games, and players can download free copies or buy print copies of their own. Plus I can use it as reference for all the RPG adventure modules which I'm now self publishing thanks to OSRIC. This book has helped my RPG homebrew hobby advance to self published RPG career. Thank you so much!< Less

    I just got this today, and I'm really impressed. It's like getting the AD&D PHB, DMG, & MM all in one. Completely packed with crunch. Some stuff has been changed to avoid possible infringement, but it's obvious to those “in the know,” and seamless for those just jumping in. (Also) Physically, it's a really nice book. Considering the price and my previous encounters with “self publishing,” I didn't hold much hope, but I was wrong. This thing is solid. Partly buying this as a potential creator myself I proceeded to “stress-test” it by grabbing the middle hundred pages or so and flopping the book around. No breakage. It's like a tighter version of the Champions 4th Ed softcover book. Again, very happy, and hoping more packed books are created. So as not to sound like some kind of “fanboy” about the whole thing, I will say my book arrived with a rather harsh dent in the bottom back (binding) corner. But even (for me), that's fine because it further showed how solid the binding is.... More > Absolutely sweet.< Less
