Hello, and welcome to the 'Tales of the Dusty Vault', intended as a depository of reviews for products released as part of the old-school revolution. It recently hit me that a majority of my RPG spending over the last year or so has been on such products, and there have been many true gems among them (I have become quite the Lulu junkie over the last few months...).
However, I have had to buy most of them sight unseen. There are so few reviews available of these products, particularly some of the more minor books and adventures – so I have decided to take it upon myself to correct that gap in the market with this blog. I will cover adventures, supplements, rules systems, magazines, and all manner of similar material. While focusing on fantasy, there will be some coverage of old-school games from other genres, such as Mutant Future and Villains & Vigilantes.
I admit I love holding a book in my hands rather than flicking through a PDF, so there will be something of a bias towards 'dead tree' material. In addition, I am setting a ground rule that any product I review must still be available in this format. This still leaves a wide array of material to cover.
I'm going to start by reposting the reviews I did on the OD&DITIES blog to get the ball rolling, but the first 'new' reviews should be up within the next few days.
