The CGA's Introduction to Hackmaster 4E -- Another side of OSR

The Complex Game's Apologist on Youtube has recently released an in-depth look at Hackmaster 4th Edition and its proper place within the umbrella of OSR games.

There's a few minor critique's of his analysis of the rules, but as a man who removed fatigue from combat and completely overhauled training, they're not worth mentioning.

As someone who ran the Hackmaster version of module G1 - Steading of the Hill Giant completely in a six hour session (with a FUBAR combat that would make most 3rd+ edition players soil themselves), I laugh at some of the comments to the video that worry about the speed of combat.   It's all a matter of knowledge and application.
