it's 1982 all over again, where is my d12?

I have always loved old school roleplaying games. Old school means 1st edition AD&D.

These days, reimagined under the Castles and Crusades line from Troll Lord Games, or even (if you are stalwart of heart) the Hackmaster system.

When I was in High School (79-83), every new fantasy book or movie that came out just gave us more fodder for our games. One of the best (don't laugh) is still Excalibur (1981).

Now watch this video, and let me know if it doesn't get you weak in the knees. I know, I know, and the dialog (all six words) are in spanish. But still, it makes me want to roll up a good old fashioned single classed fighter, and go out and start hacking up orcs. Or something like that.
