Welcome to episode one of Hobbs & Friends of the OSR. This is a show about the Old School Renaissance where Jason “Hobbs” Hobbs has one of his friends on to chat about the OSR. Often these friends are publishers of OSR material.
The show currently has four segments. First we must introduce Hobbs’ friend. Second they chat about games they’ve been playing together or playing in general. They’ve cover thoughts on the game, the style or mechanics of the game, and their favorite moments of the game. It’s a personal reflection and borders a bit on a review without being quite that formal. Third they spotlight an OSR product. Last they chat about something happening in the OSR, be it another product, some bit of news, an article someone wrote, or other miscellany.
On the inaugural episode Hobbs is joined by Eric “Stormlord” Hoffman of Stormlord Publishing and they talk USR, Treasure Vaults of Zadabad, and a few other things. Enjoy the show and let Jason know how we’re doing in the comments below or email us at email@example.com.
- USR Sword & Sorcery
- World of Xoth
- Treasure Vaults of Zadabad
- Stormlord Publishing
- Dungeon Crawl Classics
- Beyond Fomalhaut

Hello Gnomes and fans of gnomes. This is episode numero uno of the GNOMECAST, where gnomes talk about gnomes and try to avoid getting thrown in the pot for other gnomes to eat. I, your humble host Chris, has “recruited” fellow gnomes Phil & Senda to join me on this inaugural episode. Hopefully we avoid the pot.
Today we’re talking about Approaches to Continuity by John Fredricks. Check out the original link just before you read this.
The Gnomecast is a joint effort of Misdirected Mark Productions and The Gnome Stew.
