SCA1 The Best of Cavalier Attitude

Watermarked PDF


A compendium of adventures, articles and fantasy fiction
Compatible with first edition and OSRIC™ gaming rules 

A world of adventure awaits you within!
This book contains wonders gleaned from the pages of
Starry Night Press’ Old School RPG zine Cavalier Attitude!

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

This supplement was inspired by the venerable TSR “Best of Dragon” series. In this supplement you will find adventures, RPG articles, and fantasy fiction all gleaned from the first two years (Volumes I and II) of my Old School zine, CAVALIER ATTITUDE! 56 pages of OSR goodness!

The adventures presented herein are as follows:

1.        SHRINE OF THE TITANS: A mission to rescue a militia unit which went missing while investigating an ancient shrine in the mountains. (For PCs level 8 to 10)

2.        SEA HAG’S FOLLY: Your players must defeat an army of aquatic humanoids under the control of a sea hag. (For PCs level 2 to 4)

3.        THE CRYSTAL CAVERN: This venerable pub provides a relatively safe staging point from which your players may explore the dark Under-Realm. This has been expanded to include a chart of rumors (adventure hooks) and a mini-adventure. In The Slaver’s Camp, your players must defeat a group of slaver’s before they can sell their wares. (For PCs level 5 to 7)

4.        THE DARK CHANTERIE: Your players will be exploring the ancient shrine of a golem cult, to uncover the secrets hidden within its dark halls. (For PCs level 12 to 16)

5.        THE ICY HOLLOW: In this winter-themed adventure the players are hired to investigate rumours of new occupants at abandoned dwarven outpost. (For PCs level 4 to 6) 

The RPG articles presented herein are as follows:

1.        INTRODUCING PLAYERS TO RPGS VIA OSR: In this article we discuss the efficacy of using OSR games to introduce new players to role-playing games, including those who have never played before.

2.        8 REASONS TO CHECK OUT OSRIC: This article provides an explanation of what OSRIC is, and why I think it might be the very best of the Old School Renaissance retro-clones.

3.        HANDY HAVERSACK: What items should every adventurer have in their backpack? We answer this question by offering a “standard pack” to allow players to meet all of an adventuring life’s uncertainties, with a breakdown of our pack’s contents and the use and necessity of each item.

4.        THE WARRIOR MONK: This article introduces a new playable class for OSRIC, a warrior monk based on Western European-style medieval monks.

5.        THE SCOUT CLASS: This article discusses a new playable class for OSRIC, the scout class: a class composed of lightly armed military spies, dogged bounty hunters, and bold frontier people.

6.        OUT OF ALIGNMENT: A discussion on when and how a player’s alignment may change, the consequences of this monumental shift in the player’s ethos, and how to handle this issue as a Game Master. 

The very first fantasy short story we published is included herein, as follows:

  • ·SIENNA’S TALE: DEATH COMES TO BLACKROCK: In this story we meet the brave, inquisitive girl Sienna, on possibly the worst day of her young life. From seemingly out of nowhere, cruel Oruks attack her family farm, taking everyone and everything that matters to her. But they cannot break her spirit!

The supplement also includes many features not present when these scenarios were published in the original zine format, including the following:

  • pre-generated characters usable with every one of the adventures
  • fully detailed hex maps depicting the areas of these adventures
  • full statistics and descriptions for the new monsters in these adventures, and
  • full descriptions of the new magical items introduced herein

This book serves up 56 pages of action and excitement, and it is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere! 

As an ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get a FREE copy of my 2019 Starry Knight Press Catalog!<o:p></o:p>

This is the stuff! Finding new OSR materials is always a treat, but this one reminded me of the old TSR dragon magazine issues, spells, monsters, adventures, it’s all in there. No matter what edition you play there is inspiration in here for you to [...]

This is a compilation of a lot of different type of content: small adventures, monsters, new magic items and some articles about OSR gaming. This content rivals the content of other established writers on DT RPG. It is well worth the asking price. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
