My pleasure.

*Gold Winner* Zweihänder Grim & Perilous RPG, Grim & Perilous Studios Author: Daniel D. Fox

Its interesting to me that a d100 game won Best Game of the Year. Usually people tend to shy away from d100 accept for Cthuluh. It also happens to be a kind of OSR-ish ruleset by a small studio.

Also a commercial success : «Platinum Rated on DriveThruRPG and having sold over 26,000 physical copies and 62,000 digital copies worldwide»

Times are changing.

I've not really understood what that game is about :-) I mean the setting, have you read it?

I have not. But here is what I could find. Sounds like a morally ambiguous world worth with morally ambiguous heroes :

« Using the classical D100 system, you will create grim characters, write perilous adventures and build low fantasy & dark fantasy campaigns. These rules are perfectly suitable to run Renaissance and medieval-styled adventures, too. You can also use this book to craft homebrew stories set in the works of Andrzej Sapkowski The Witcher, George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice And Fire, Glen Cook's Black Company, Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastards and other ‘grimdark’-inspired worlds.

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG is a retro-clone spiritual successor to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay first and second editions, an unrepentant OSR heartbreaker released under Creative Commons License Share-Alike. It is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game, one where adventurers will:

Live in a gritty, ‘realistic’ fantasy world
Make morally grey decisions & enact vicious reprisals
Uncover insidious plots & political intrigue
Desperately fight in clandestine & open field combat
Defend themselves from injuries, madness & mutations
Take part in heart-pumping chase scenes
Venture into the wilderness & survive its perils
Encounter sanity-blasting creatures & their minions
