I believe OSR =


... Old School Renaissance or Old School Revival ...

From the Wiki:
Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as it was played in the first decade of the game's existence—less emphasis on linear adventure plots and overarching metaplots and a greater emphasis on player agency.

(Who talks like that?)

I think it was to mean something more lofty but in practice, it's just I don't like 5e or 4e and want a different thing.

So, 1st Edition is OSR. A number of the clones are OSR like Castles and Crusades. Goodman games puts out Dungeon Crawl Classic.

A bunch of the "Hacks" are considered OSR.

I'm not sure where "Powered by the Apocalypse" fits ... the mechanics are different.

The more I see, the more I think the best tact is to go back to the little books and a few pages of house rules and off we go. (Does anyone really need to be a bard?)
