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 in the 1970s.
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 Red Box Fantasy, Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role-Playing, The Black Hack, Dungeon Crawl Classics and sometimes Monsters & Magic'.
