10 Reasons I like Old School

Here are the reasons I like old school RPG's like Labyrinth Lord and Basic Fantasy and Swords and Wizardry not to mention B/X, AD&D 1 and 2 and even Osric)

#1 Most of the time it feels more like a set of guidelines rather than a straitjacket

#2 Less fiddly rules. Most of the time its "roll stat and go"

#3 Easier prep time with less annoying stat blocks to deal with.

#4 Character Generation takes a matter of minutes for most levels and maybe half an hour for something epic.

#5 There is a lot of material out there to choose from and a lot of it is cheap to free.

#6 Its easy to customize

#7 The community is pretty cool

#8 Less Min/Maxing opportunity for players

#9 It usually encourages a smarter play style

#10 Its fun
