Grab Delving Deeper for free


If you have a hankering for some supremely old school roleplaying, and by that I mean an emulation of the first D&D rules, then I have some good news for you because you can get Delving Deeper for absolutely gratis!

Delving Deeper is, as you might have guessed, an OSR game originally published by Brave Halfling and is pretty much Swords & Wizardry in a different package. Still, it's free so you can't really go wrong.

Edit

I received an email from Simon Bull, the editor/co-author of Delving Deeper, making a couple of clarifications about this post. These are "Reference Rules", published by Brave Halfling, Immersive Ink and Wobbly Goblin, but you can also get a boxed version of the full rules from Brave Halfling.

Also, it may have been misleading for me to label Delving Deeper as 'Swords & Wizardy' in a different package. DD, according to Bull, is "as close as is legally possible to the original game [D&D]" while S&W "includes a umber of more modern concepts and variations." Essentially, DD is almost a direct emulation of the original edition D&D - which is pretty nifty, especially because it's difficult to find copies of this old edition.
