The Limited Edition of Knave sold out faster than we could have ever anticipated. For those that missed out, your demand has been heard! L.F. OSR will be hand crafting another 500 copies, this time in a Standard Premium Edition.

Head over to the L.F. OSR Shop to purchase your copy now!

Knave by Ben Milton (aka Questing Beast) is a rules light RPG system designed to be compatible with most classic OSR material. This version reformats that work, minus designer notes, and compiles it with the amazing art of Perplexing Ruins. An updated character sheet is also included. The sheet is based on the work of Reddit user DJKane and restyled to match the look of this zine and the classic feel of Knave.

Do NOT order ANYTHING from the Signum Nos crew. Phil, who runs it is a total scumbag who grifted hundreds of people out over $9000 on Kickstarter for a game that was never released. Complete and total garbage human


Not this Phil, but the other one


CORRECT! This Phil is awesome! 


Does anyone have any idea what's going on with LF OSR? I ordered a print copy over two months ago and haven't received my book, and no replies to my several emails looking for an update.

Same here. I haven't got a copy either. I noticed that at one point Ben said he had issues with LF OSR and switched to Swordfish Islands. I may have to see if I can get a refund some how and get that money back if I can just print my own copy of Knave 1e via Lulu.

I ordered in July and my copy hasn't arrived and LF OSR still hasn't answered any of my emails. At first I thought that something may have happened to Leo, however it appears that he's still doing work on other projects coming out. Its ridiculous. I used Cashapp to pay, so I can't dispute the payment or else I absolutely would. He should close his website and stop accepting people's money if he's not planning on fulfilling orders, definitely a very scummy and sketchy thing to do. Nothing to do with Ben, he seems like a nice guy and does great work. Super pumped for Knave 2. LF OSR is a joke though, i highly recommend staying far far away 


Thanks so much for creating this!

I love the layout, and plan to print my own! But I was wondering if there are instructions to do so. I think the "Booklet" print option in Adobe Reader will do it. Any tips?


Sounds like you got it worked out! The "Zine Format" PDF with the Booklet print option in Adobe should get you where you want to be.

Thanks for the excellent product!

Hey you thief…you ever going to make the game that people paid you over $9000 for? Assh*le. FINISH THE PROJECT YOU WERE ALREADY PAID FOR YOU JERK

Lovely layout, Signum Vox team! Thank you so much for this.

Glad I was able to grab one of these in print.

A big improvement!
