BFGs to meet in Tenkar's Tavern
Patrons of publican Tenkar's fine establishment will know of his upcoming gathering for appreciators of Basic Fantasy Role-playing Game. This red-headed stepchild of the OSR is the product of the generous labors of Chris Gonnerman and is supported by the ongoing dedication of its fans who put out a considerable body of supplemental material. All of this is available for free download at the site linked above, Basicfantasy.org. This game has been on my radar for a while, though I've yet to play it. One of these days I'm going to give it a good going-over, to see if my own home-brewing project of B/X, Holmes, S&W -- together with what I appreciated about AD&D and 3rd era gaming -- is either reinventing the wheel or has something to learn from Basic Fantasy.
In any event, I look forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring, and hope you too will take a look and join me in appreciating the appreciators!
