Free OSR RPGs

OSR, which stands for Old School Renaissance, usually means stuff that is compatible with old school (pre-d20) Dungeons & Dragons. While these older editions have some differences, stuff that is made for one can easily be used for any of them. If you're interested in finding out the differences in the D&D editions, take a look at this geeklist on RPGgeek.com.
