The Old School Renaissance is a subcategory of RPG. It's about older editions of Dungeons and Dragons (LBB, 1st ed. AD&D, etc.) and the retro-clones. Other Old School games (Traveller, Runequest, Tunnels & Trolls, et al) are also included.
Roger GS once described it as "environment-focused, with exploration and social interaction the focus of creative expression, and combat not absent or abstracted but encapsulated in a simple system with a few nods to realism. We are creating interesting places to be dealt with discursively, rather than intriguing plot lines that are scaffolded by mechanics, or stages to play out a combat game in between cut scenes."
Robert Conley said: "It is about going back to the roots of our hobby and seeing what we could do differently. What avenues were not explored because of the commercial and personal interests of the game designers of the time."
