Old-School Essentials Advanced Fantasy (for Foundry VTT)

It's good to have the text of OSE:AF available in Foundry for easy look up and to share with players. However, the items that were made for use in Foundry (i.e. equipment, monsters, etc.) are full of errors, missing text, etc. Most are minor issues, but the monster entries really feel sloppy, and I've had to go through each entry one by one to fix typos and adjust Foundry-related things like token names, disposition, etc. For a paid product I wish there had been more proof-reading.

This is a great alternate set of rules for fantasy miniature wargames. Because it's not tied to any specific line of minis, you can use any figures at all. The book has an extensive section on building your own units with whatever abilities you like, and a mathematical formula for determining their point value. I have yet to see a more flexible and customizable wargame system.

The rules are quick to learn for any somewhat-experienced wargamer, and they are clearly laid out. The book isn't jam-packed with art, but the artwork in it is good, and the diagrams are easy to read.

One thing I wish there was more of is additional sample armies. The book contains a number of detailed sample army sets, but with such customization abilities it would be great to see a menagerie of sample armies to rival some of the bigger publishers.

Finally, there's a lot of wonderful math and numbers to crunch, but not so much fluff text to describe what the numbers actually represent. In some ways, this is good, because in order to remain flexible the system needs to be somewhat abstract. However, the flip side to this is that beginners may have trouble constructing balanced units if they don't stick to the sample army lists.

I can see myself using this system for a very long time.
