    OSRIC or even Hackmaster

    Anyone doing something self-published (free & on the web) with OSRIC and/or Hackmaster that could be vaguely Greyhawk-related.

    I am currently running a Greyhawk Campaign using the O.S.R.I.C system.

    I have developed some of my own stuff, but nothing too impressive. I set up a cantrips system using Castles & Crusades material, and have added the non-weapon proficiency system from 2nd edition D&D. Currently I am putting together a level titles progression for O.S.R.I.C because I do not approve of a player saying the need a lvl. x class y npc or generally braking character in that manner.

    Joe Bloch's Castle of the Mad Archmage is pretty OSR system-neutral (easy to use with OSRIC or LL or other retro-clones), and Black Blade will be publishing a print version of it next year.

    I've been playing around with the idea of running a campaign using the new HackMaster.

    I think the toughest part will be the clerics. In the new HM, clerics of each god have entirely different spell lists. Many have the same spells, but the spell's level varies depending on the god worshiped.

    Most interesting published adventures in Greyhawk are AD&D 1st edition adventures (T1-4, GDQ1-7 etc).

    OSRIC allows to run them without any conversations. Other systems do not.

    Agreed. Converting them to the new HackMaster would required extremely high level characters due to the difference in power level.
    Characters in the high teens would have a very difficult time in the hill giant steading and pretty much no chance in the fire giant hall.

    Two newly reprinted 1e/OSRIC products by Rob Kuntz have been published recently; they originated in the Greyhawk campaign:

    - Dark Druids - originally set in the Gnarley) @ http://www.chaotichenchmen.com/p/dark-druids-by-robert-j-kuntz.html
    - Bottle City - a sub-level of Castle Greyhawk @ http://black-blade-publishing.com/Store/tabid/65/pid/42/The-Original-Bottle-City-adventure-module.aspx
