Free B/X Adventure Supplement: Riding Dogs

In our regular gaming group, I recently finished up running a year-plus-long campaign that started with Vault of the Faceless Giants and culminated with The Jah'nu Prophecy (the latter of which is intended to be my Friday night game at this year's NTRPGCon.

So the group started a new campaign, and I chose to play a gnome thief (because I've never played a gnome before, and the GM wasn't explicitly forbidden as it has by some GMs in the past). Instead of considering a horse or mule, I decided I wanted a riding dog. And though they seem to be a thing, I couldn't find any older edition rules for them. So I wrote my own, based on B/X stats and SRD material, woven in with thoughts from some old Dragon magazine articles. The campaign is AD&D, but except for the movement rates, it's pretty adaptable from B/X to AD&D (and to OD&D or S&W, I'd imagine).

Here it is for your use and enjoyment.

And if you need some gnomes for your B/X game, don't forget to download CX1 Extra Gnomes from RPGNow.

New B/X Character Classes: 3 Barbarians

Please note: this is a preview/beta version only. It is not considered Open Gaming Content until the official release of Old School Adventures™ Accessory CX1: Character Class Codex. AND BEFORE YOU ASK!!!! It will be late 2017 or early 2018 AT THE EARLIEST!!!! This is not priority right now. I am simply releasing some "stockpiled" material because it feels like the OSR blogosphere needed it.

This PDF has the following three classes: a "berskerker" barbarian, a "wildling" barbarian (with survival skills, tracking abilities and the like), and a "horde" barbarian (adapted from the 1e Oriental Adventures barbarian).
