Chainmail Combat Tables

Does anyone know if there is a retro-clone of Chainmail, or if the Chainmail rules are OGL or anything like that? I'd like to reference them out of curiosity. I suppose that I might have to dive into the unsavory depths of Ebay.

Any information is appreciated.

  3. Best place to ask is the OD&D Board.

  4. @Josh: Hollurrrr

    @bdficus: This does look very cool. I'll have to puruse them at length later, but at first glance I like it.

    @Chgowiz: Which board? Do you mean the one at Dragon's Foot? I'm not much of a forum guy, so I don't know my way around.

  5. This OD&D board: http://odd74.proboards76.com/index.cgi?

    There's a whole subforum on Chainmail and a lot of people that talk about it. It's also one of the friendliest boards about OD&D out there.

  6. In case you didn't know, or forgot, Jason Vey's S&S uses Chainmail-esque combat rules, well integrated into a LBB-esque system.

    I'd go further - it's one of the friendliest rpg forums out there, free of the usual personal attacks and pointless arguments that spoil most of the others.

    You're sure to find enough information there to help you to decide whether or not to purchase an original copy. :)
