Old School & Cool – Vol 1


Old School & Cool is a bad-ass zine made from angry spirits and bad dreams by the folks at Knight Owl Publishing. Why? Because we thought that Zine Quest was awesome and we have a lot of cool stuff to share with you!

  • 34 OSR feats
  • 9 new spells
  • 4 Inn menus
  • 10 new types of inns
  • 10 adventurer’s packs
  • 800,00 NPCs
  • 1 space lich
  • 4 magic items
  • 2 dwarven poems

The reviews are in: people love Old School and Cool!

In terms of tone, it goes all out! Crazy ideas balanced with good mechanical design. The over-the-top classes all make sense mechanically…My thoughts can be broadly categorized into:’I’d love to throw this at my friends in our game.’ or ‘I’d love to show this to my friend so he can make use of it when he DMs (and I can play an Augur).’ – Third Eye Openers

[I]t has consistent art, varied content, and is a pool of ideas to pick and choose for your games at an affordable price…With a stroke of luck we will get future issues of Old School & Cool.” – The Man with a Hammer
