You may have heard of the Old School Renaissance, an enthusiastic movement that champions old-school gaming and old-school systems.
Here's the problem: there are dozens of old school rule sets. So which one should you try?
The Old School Renaissance Handbook profiles 16 different popular old-school systems, including their basic mechanics, character attributes, and advice for DMs and players. There's even a handy one-page table comparing all these systems on price and complexity.
Plus, the book stats out the same five first-level characters in all 16 systems. Compare systems easily, and quickly jump into a game with these pregens.
