Tomb of the Solar Queen - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons (Original) + clones

Join a party to enter a strange dungeon. Explore the twisting passages, negotiate with its denizens, and fight for your life in the Tomb of the Solar Queen.

Searching for 4-6 players, starting at level one. XP for gold. New players and those unfamiliar with OD&D are especially welcome, and the system is easy to jump right in and play with.

Game Description:

What secrets lie below the ground in this heat-beaten land where the sun lingers? The stars have led you to a burial of old legend, newly uncovered by an unnatural wind on the dunes. You are the first to arrive, but others will come searching for the same treasure soon enough. Gather your hirelings, string your bows, bronze your blades, and hide your soul-shells well. Pray to your gods and mean it. You'll be trading gold for lives if you want to reach the bottom of the dungeon.

Now delve, into the Tomb of the Solar Queen.


This is an exploration of a large (40+) room dungeon. The system is GLOG, a new-player friendly B/X derivative (don't know what that means? Doesn't matter, it's simple and easy to pick up). Material for the system is freely available online, and not necessary to play the game.

I'm looking for 4-6 players, posting at least 3 times a week. You'll roll up a character, pick a class, basic equipment, name and describe your hireling, and jump right in. The game is based on XP-for-gold, and advancement is fairly fast. Each PC has a free one-time revive in the form of a soul-shell, a rare and valuable minor magic item. Resurrection is difficult, and often not worth it. Also, a dead PC's XP is split among the party. Death is a setback, but character creation is fast, so take risks and be back in the game in no time.

Interested? Roll your stats (3d6 in order) and pick from the following classes:

Barbarian: A raging warrior with an affinity for light or no armor.
Fighter: A warrior trained consummately in their weapon of choice.
Tactician: An experienced and inspiring battlefield commander.
Thief: A sticky fingered, nimble rogue in over their heads.
Wizard (warning, more resource-intensive than other classes): An orthodox spellcaster channeling powers beyond mortal comprehension.

Post below, and i'll get back to you promptly.

For those interested, I'm using a trimmed down version of the rules here.

I'm new to RPGs and especially OSR. I GMed a few FATE games, and played a game or two of 5e. Discovered OSR content through Questing Beast and read through Knave, the Old School Essentials core rulebook, and browsed through LotFP. Love the philosophy and great content coming from the scene. Nice to meet you all.
We have a similar background then. I found the scene through the Alexandrian. You might have come across Patrick Stuart/Bryce Lynch/Scrap Princess/Arnold Kemp circle. The system we're using, GLOG, is Arnold's (of Goblin Punch fame) fantasy heartbreaker, but entirely compatible with other OSR content, including LotFP, Veins of the Earth and the like.

I'd love to do this, but I just got back in touch with an old friend and am rolling up a character for his game...and I just don't think I can add two right now. I'm sorry, all. Thank you, truly, for the invite! I hope someone steps right in and takes my place so you all can have a blast!

Hey! Thought I'd try to help a bit. Feel free to correct me if I'm pointing in the wrong direction, Fiction.

There's info on the Wizard class on page C5A or around page 32 of the pdf that Fiction linked. Link should be in both the first post of the thread and on the Game Profile page. I'm new here so I can't link URLs yet, sorry. :[
The link is on the last word of his post.

Just about. There's more information in the thread titled, 'wizard spell list' that should give you what you need. Instead of a wizard school from the pdf, we're using the spell list in the thread.

thanks everyone. ill make my character and get back shortly. should i post it here or send it to you Fiction privately

Post it in its own thread in the forum. Roll the dice, choose a class, come up with description of your character and your hireling, and I'll write up your statblock. There's more info inside if you need it.

I was thinking of just doing a basic 'Wizard' class with an old-school spell list, but if one of the choices from the list tickles your fancy, we can talk about it. You can access the forum by clicking on 'Forum' next to 'Tomb of the Solar Queen' near the top. Don't worry, it's pretty new to me too.

Well i was extremely curious about the elementalist, also the mishap seems to be somewhat of a foreign concept to me if you don't mind explaining
