Carlo's Code

Adventure, not arguments,
Imagination, not indignation,
Fun, not fumbling for a rulebook,
Rulings, not rules,
Making it up, not making do with what they give you,
Getting on with the Game, not getting bogged down in BS.

That's what Old School means to me!

Carlo is a member of the Original D&D Discussion board, where he goes by the username coffee. He has the text above in his sig there.


  1. I think I'm going to print that out in bold 72 point font and get it laminated, then hang it around my neck when I attend my next monthly snoozefest - erm, I mean gaming session...

  2. To the extent that I understand it, I disagree with it.

    But it's possible I misunderstand it.

  4. Honestly, I don't see how any of those distinctions line up with "Old School" more than other gaming styles. Some, in fact, go the opposite direction in my experience...
