Like the 1st edition D&D? Then you most likely are into Old School Renaissance (OSR) RPG!

OSRIC, short for Old School Reference and Index Compilation, describes itself as “a compilation of rules for old school-style fantasy gaming…intended to reproduce underlying rules used in the late 1970s to early 1980s”.[1]Although OSRIC never refers to this directly for legal reasons, it is intended to reproduce the rules of the first edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.

The purpose of OSRIC is to provide publishers with a tool to legally produce gaming materials compatible with the non-copyrightable aspects of the underlying rules set. Gaming materials described as OSRIC-compatible alert potential users those materials may be compatible with the rules of late 1970s and early 1980s Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.[2]  -wikipedia

Here is one example


Dark Albion: The Rose War is a 275 pages long, OSR RPG campaign setting, set in a fantasy medieval England during the War of the Roses (15th century). Think England + sorcery + demons and fairies + some fantasy twists to the world. 80% of the book is system neutral, so can be used with most role-playing games. Nonetheless, this book is designed with OSR games in mind, and will run best with Fantastic Heroes & Witchery of course, as well as similar games such as Osric, Swords & Wizardry, etc., and also the 5th edition of the most popular fantasy RPG of course! Yet, if you intend to run an Albion game with FH&W, there is a 20 pages appendix at the end of the book that proposes 8 classes specifically designed for Dark Albion, plus rules and guidelines relative to the setting.
