Hello! This is PresGas; also known as Pres-Gas or Robert Freeman-Day
If you have any requests or issues, you are welcome to email me at “presgas(at)disroot(dot)org”
In light of a question I posed:
I came to realize that OSRIC was a system reference document that did not have a web/wiki form of the rules available. The PDF's available are the MAIN reason I was able to come back to the game after many years “taking a break” (getting married, having a couple kids…adulting).
My kids found what 1e books I did have and it made me wonder if there was any further information about not only 1e D&D, but also if there was any community around keeping it going. That was when I discovered OSRIC and it completely fulfilled both sides of me; the RPG gamer from the 1e/2e world and the Free Libre Community movements of Linux and BSD. Just knowing that people around the world got together to not only keep 1e alive, but to put it out in an Open License (OGL) just blew my mind. I had to find a way to contribute!!
There is still some work that needs to be done, but the actual reference data is all there for your gaming usage. The editors of the wiki also hope to add some other goodies in there that are related to OSRIC or inspired from it. Stay tuned!
