Hobo Slang: A resource for Knights of the Road and other 1920s RPGs

Just ran my first session of Knights of the Road, the fun RPG about hobo paladins battling monsters in a fantasy version of 1920s America. I’ll probably write up the adventure eventually and release it, along with some pregens.

When preparing for the game, I found these glossaries of hobo slang a useful resource:

These phrases would be useful for Knights of the Road, Hobomancer, or almost any game set in early American hobo culture.

I previously posted my custom Knights of the Road fillable character sheet.
