The Lazaro Heresies (House Rules for The Black Hack)

So, despite my initial criticisms of it being a cheap fad in the indie OSR scene, The Black Hack has pretty much  infected me with how I love to run my games. This past week I’ve been compiling together my own playbook for all the ideas, house rules, and add-ons I want to use as my “core” system.

It’s become a 24-page booklet that I’ve already handed out to my players (including two kids I’ve run 5e for in the past.)

All of my White Star rules are printed out in a school notebook binder, along with most of the Hyperspace Messengers by DwD Studios and the Psionics supplement by DYS Games.
