Content warning: bones, violence
Picking the bones of OSR clean and crushing them underfoot
OSSUARY is a minimal, one-page dungeon delving system. It's been designed with speed and play-by-post in mind — the rules are straightforward, the character sheets are simple, the rolls are handled by the Bone Collector (aka GM).
In this game a Bone Collector guides a group of players through a game of traps, terror and treasure, where creative problem-solving is key.
Features at a glance:
- 3 randomly generated stats — Spine (strength), Femur (dexterity) and Skull (willpower) — represented by die sizes (d4, d6, d8, d10, and d12)
- core stats double up as HP
- pseudo-lifepath character generation and equipment
- emphasis on lvl 0 funnel play
- freeform classes and abilities beyond lvl 0
- micro adventure hidden within the rules
This is a single double-sided sheet of A5 card.
