Adventures Dark & Deep Kickstarter

Adventures Dark & Deep is a new RPG that attempts to take the World's First and Biggest Fantasy RPG back to its early days. It takes the bones of the 1st edition game and imagines what it would have been like if Gary Gygax had stayed with TSR and released the 2nd edition of the game.

You can read more about it here: and here:

You can see some of this in Joseph Bloch's other products  that are part of the Adventures Dark & Deep line.
A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore
Darker Paths 1: The Necromancer
Darker Paths 2: The Witch

I had mentioned a while back that 2nd Ed might be the next wave of the OSR.  Looks like we are finally seeing some of that.

Go to the Kickstarter page and watch the video.  Joe looks like what a I always thought Mordenkainen looked like, so that is worth a pledge from me for that alone!

The levels are good and well priced in my mind.
Good art and professional editing is not cheap. So I am thinking his goal is reasonable.

I don't need another retro-clone, near-clone or even alternate-reality clone (that is what I consider this and Spellcraft and Swrodplay).  BUT I do like to support my fellow gamers.

So I putting in for a hard cover edition.

Adventures Dark and Deep is still first edition AD&D. I wouldn’t call this “second edition” OSR at all.
