[OSE] Advanced Fantasy PDFs Released
Today Necrotic Gnome released PDFs of the first Advanced Fantasy books in its Old School Essentials line: Advanced Fantasy Genre Rules and Advanced Fantasy Druid and Illusionist Spells. These books effectively B/X-ize material from the AD&D Player's Handbook and Unearthed Arcana volumes. (I don't really have to say "advanced version of the original fantasy roleplaying game," do I?) In the case of Advanced Fantasy Genre Rules, that means new human classes (acrobat, assassin, barbarian, bard, druid, illusionist, knight, paladin, ranger), new demi-human classes (drow, duergar, gnome, half-elf, half-orc, svirfneblin), poison rules, and other rules new to B/X games (e.g., separating race from class, multi-classing, weapon specialization, etc.).
Advanced Fantasy Druid and Illusionist Spells is, well, it's a collection of spells for the Advanced Fantasy Genre Rules druids and illusionists to cast. But Necrotic Gnome has done a wonderful job of adapting the spells, and there's some particularly wonderful artwork to go along with the B/X translations of the AD&D spell entries.
