Old School Revival
The Old School Revival, Old School Renaissance, or simply OSR, is a movement among players of tabletop role-playing games (especially Dungeons & Dragons) that draws inspiration from the earliest days of tabletop RPGs.
The OSR was made possible by the OGL and the relaxed issues with copyright that it allowed. Either Castles & Crusades, or the Old School Index and Resource Compilation (better known as OSRIC), is considered to be the earliest OSR games and it includes most Dungeons & Dragons retro-clones. Other games considered part of the OSR include Monsters & Magic, Red Box Fantasy, Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing, and sometimes Dungeon World.
