View Full Version : Not yet named! :) (Chicago, IL - 1E/OSRIC)

12-12-2008, 12:39 PM
We're looking for interested parties who want to come join a roughly monthly 1E/OSRIC- based campaign in the near northwest Chicagoland area.

Next game: To be determined - Games Plus in Mt. Prospect IL (http://www.games-plus.com/).

Campaign wiki: http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/the-dark-ages

Here's the setting overview of the game (http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/the-dark-ages/wikis/background-for-the-dark-ages).

Here's the long and short of it:
Mix between Role and Roll playing
Mid-typical Fantasy setting, not based on any existing setting
Probably Mid powered characters with Mid powered magic

I've suggested that to avoid DM burnout and to make this an interesting unique event, we try to run this aka West Marches - for more info on a "West March" campaign, read this blog and linked followup articles (http://arsludi.lamemage.com/index.php/78/grand-experiments-west-marches/).

If you're interested, post here or PM me and let me know what you think! As more info gets fleshed out among people who want to play, I'll add more info here.

It looks like the first game will be the fourth weekend of January (1/24 or 1/25) and tentatively, we'll be playing at Games Plus.

System will be 1e/OSRIC - I'll be DM'ing and it'll probably be a "rules light" 1E (it's been a looooong time since I've DM'd 1E)

Setting information and other particulars forthcoming.

We have ~3 players, looking for 3 to 5 more!

Just a bump to remind those in the chicagoland area about the upcoming OSRIC/1E game at Games Plus in Mt Prospect this Saturday from 1 to 5pm. Come see old school rules light D&D and have fun in a "fantasy post-apocalypse" game.

We had our first game Saturday and it went great! 4 adventurers bravely (foolishly?) went into the Darkwoods and managed to survive! They did stop a band of goblins to inquire about directions on the map, but that didn't go so well...

Next game will be in Feb. If you're interested, drop a line!

- Bump - Just a reminder that our next game is this Sunday (Mar 15) from noon to 6ish at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect.

Also, a note - there is an FLGS called 'Unique Gifts and Games' in Grayslake. I'm more than willing to run another Dark Ages group/game there as well. So if you live far north or SE Wisconsin, let me know - I'll run for as few as 1 to 2 people!
