Old School Gamers

If you whisper the name of Gygax with reverence, it's time to open the closet, dust off the rulebooks, and convince the cat to give you back that icosahedron it's been chasing all over the house for years. (Good luck with that last one).

We are a group of old-school tabletop roleplayers in the Austin area.

The campaign has started. Currently we have 5 regulars and a small pool of irregulars. If you are interested, and have not already shown up to make a character, please contact me and sign up for the mailing list. That way you'll know when there are open slots. Based on seating, there is space for 8 players (maximum) and 6 is about optimal. Since not everyone can show up for every game session, I'd like to get the group size up to about 8 so that smaller parties remain survivable when not everyone can show up.

The current campaign is using the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (1st Edition) rules. The setting is Oerth (Greyhawk), with my own peculiar spin on things. The campaign itself is a mix of published modules (mostly original classics) and my own invention and inspiration. It will mostly be up the players which they end up exploring. So far, they have mostly gone for the modules, with an unexpected bias towards humor.

New players joining the campaign may want to read the session notes.

There are house rules and character creation instructions if you want to get a head start, and a list of questions I hope will be frequently asked.

We have merchandise with our logo available, if you like that sort of thing.
