Back when gaming was fun....

Game Description:

Do you miss the 'Old School' gaming days where it was more about the story and adventure and less about rolling the most powerful character and striving for the next level or over-powered magic item?

Are you interested in taking a new character from a small village and having him ( or her ) travel the globe looking for the next adventure?

Would you like to recapture some of the fun of your childhood?

If there is enough interest, I will start a game that is reminescent of the past. A game where the story is more important than the outcome of a die. To make sure everyone would have ( or could get ) a copy of the rules, we will be using the Swords and Wizardry rules ( available here ).

Just a few basics to help you make a decision if interested:
Starting level: 2nd.
Posting Frequency: I'm flexible. I'll try to post every day to keep the story moving. Players should try to post every two day, three at the most. After 7 days of no posting, I'll send out a reminder. After 2 weeks, I'll just look for a replacement.
Deadline for applying: Noon(eastern time) on 10-19
Characters needed: 3-5

Character creation guidelines will be posted in the game's forum soon.

There is always interest in AD&D and 2e games. What's the setting/story you're thinking to use, or are you contemplating a home brew?

Classes Available: Cleric, Fighter, Magic User, Thief
Races Available: Dwarves, Elves, Halflings and Humans

Edit: I changed my mind about the setting last night, but wanted to read a bit more before posting. I will be using the B1-9 In Search Of Adventure module, which is based in the Duchy of Karameikos.

Definitely interested. I'll have to look over the rulebook you provided a link for, but your mention of B1-9 (yay!) is making me think of BECMI sets. Is this correct?

EDIT: Any chance of posting the rulebook somewhere that doesn't require me to create a brand new account at some web site I'll probably never use again? Lulu requires you to create an account, and I'd really rather not do that.

I am traveling until later today but will get you a copy. It has separate classes and race ( see the forum for more details ), but otherwise has a becmi feel to me.

That's cool by me. As soon as I can get a copy of the ruleset I can take a look at it. I'm partial to mages and thieves myself...

DONE. Or at least that is the version I have.
