Im 34, run dnd 5e and am trying to hack it into an OSR like game myself, also trying to run Swords and Wizardy OSR ruleset(a 0e retroclone) Played AD&D as a kid exclusivly, ran 3.5 and 5e for people online. My favorite char used old venerable rules to raise into to the min 13 to be a wizard, all other stats ended up under 9, and he died of a heart attack at a festival. He was roleplayed as the amnesiac grandpa wizard who forgot his spells and thought he was young again with a party who was his adopted grandkids and went with him till he died, then continued advenruting to honor the memory. i activlyy dislike the abilitys and features 5e gives and much prefer the OSR style of play, i work from home (now and before covid) and can always show up on fridays. human fighter of 3d6 down the line sounds great, and im not worried about my stat modifiers at all. clever RP and a DM who goes with common sense can overcome any stat mod. Flour in the air for invis opponents Water on the floors for pit traps. ect. the good old 10'ft pole thats never used. sorry, typing quick and have to run, hope to hear from you.
