Adventurer! This Necrotic Gnome Bundle features the Old-School Essentials tabletop fantasy roleplaying game and its Dolmenwood campaign setting from colorfully named publisher Necrotic Gnome. Funded in an April 2019 Kickstarter campaign, Old-School Essentials is a modular B/X retro-clone that emphasizes clarity, layout, and ease of use at your table. And Dolmenwood is a flavorful and attractive weird-fantasy setting about a creepy forest steeped in occult energies, riddled with fungus, and haunted by fairies both wicked and kind.

This all-new offer brings you this highly regarded Old School Revival game and most of its support line for a bargain price. For just US$12.95 you get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $56.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the comprehensive Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy Rules Tome, the introductory dungeon The Hole in the Oak, and the Referee's Screen, plus the first three issues of the popular OSR magazine Wormskin.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $25.23, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with nine more titles worth an additional $65.50, including two Advanced Fantasy expansions (Genre Rules and Druid and Illusionist Spells), the key Dolmenwood titles The Weird That Befell Drigbolton and Winter's Daughter, and five more issues of Wormskin.
