I have a fondness for most things OSR. So, I was very excited to run across the Kickstarter for the second edition of The Black Hack.

For those of you not familiar, The Black Hack is "an 'OSR' First Edition Hack developed by DAVID BLACK With elements borrowed from 'original' era rpg gaming and modern d20 theory."

The Black Hack features some interesting mechanics such as usage die for consumable items, attribute tests instead of saving throws, armor points, and more. Combine this with excellent support from Gold Piece Publications / Squarehex and backing The Black Hack 2nd Edition should be a foregone conclusion.

Are you backing The Black Hack? Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter to let me know.
