Review And Commentary On The Free OSRIC Pocket SRD (PDF) From Usherwood Publishing

Get it Right Over
OSRIC is one very handy resource even if you are running other retroclone rules and this is a very large pdf available for free. This acts as a very nice stop gap when it comes to referencing all of the material that has come out and expanded the range of the OSRIC game.
According to Drivethrurpg: 
This book represents a compilation of rules for old school-style fantasy roleplay gaming, and is intended to reproduce the underlying rules used in the late 1970s to early 1980s. A complete game manual in itself, this source reference document (SRD) includes everything the game master and player alike require for beginning to advanced level play. This compact A5 trim of the OSRIC SRD is available exclusively through James D. Kramer contains the OSRIC rules, complete with indexes. Includes all errata through January 2013, and updated magic item tables.
