OSR Commentary On The Fifteen Percent Special Mega Bundle Sale On Drivethrurpg

So +Greg Gorgonmilk  directed me over to the fact that Drivethrurpg is having a fifteen percent off sale on lots of titles over at Drivethrurpg .  There's lots of OSR titles & retroclone systems available through these sales. You can pick up lots of products at a fraction of the cost but what's really interesting is that that major publishers have recognized the fact that the OSR is a legitimate gaming category.
When you've got the  AD&D Core Megabundle (1e) [BUNDLE] 
which has almost everything you need to run AD&D completely except for Unearthed Arcana. Well, then things get a bit interesting. Because you've got the Known World Megabundle (BECMI) which has everything you need for Mystara & the second edition AD&D setting Planscape for sale. Its easy to see why some have stated that the OSR has one the war. To which I say to the pundits that the battle goes on. Yeah, the major & minor publishers are recognizing that there's gold in that there hobby & childhood  nostalgia. But getting new blood into the hobby is really the major hurtle. 

Time & time again I've seen wonderful folks come into the old school hobby & some leave but its those with the staying power who are really the leading lights. This is something that the classic  GROGNARDIA 
blog talked about time & again. OSR adventures are jam to the system peanut butter & there's some really fine ones on sale in  The OSR(IC) Extravaganza [BUNDLE] From  Expeditious Retreat Press .This set has some serious titles that can take PC's from first through the end of their gaming levels. Its also a set that perfectly lines up with another system that's on sale during this run, I'm talking about North Wind Adventures Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea's rpg system product line & adventures!

This is great time to get new gamers into sword & sorcery OSR gaming, and branch it off into other avenues of old school gaming. Which brings me to my point which is that on the ground play is the route to go.Keep the ball rolling to get new campaigns and adventures at the table with both new players and old. Its new blood that keeps this hobby vital folks.
Anyhow keep em rolling and I hope you make your saves.
