Terror by night! The village of Orlane Is dying. Once a small and thriving community. Orlane has become a maze of locked doors and frightened faces. Strangers are shunned, trade has withered. Rumors flourish, growing wilder with each retelling. Terrified peasants flee their homes, abandoning their farms with no explanation.

Others simply disappear...

No one seems to know the cause of the decay—why are there no clues? Who skulks through the twisted shadows of the night? Who or what is behind the doom that has overtaken the village? It will take a brave and skillful band of adventurers to solve the dark riddle of Orlane!

I am looking for is for 4-7 non-evil aligned characters of first through third levels using the 1st Edition Player's Handbook for generation of ability scores and classes, and Races.

Anyone who is interested please post here or pm me either way is fine.

What's your plan for combat? Narrated? Players do general plans?

What's the turn / post frequency?

Any special rules?

What's your plan for combat? Narrated? Players do general plans?

What's the turn / post frequency?

Any special rules?

1. Combat will be quite simple first determine distance, if unknown, between the parties, second if both parties are unsurprised, or equally surprised, determine initiative for that round.

2. Combat will be divided into 1 minute period melee rounds, or simply rounds, in order to have reasonably manageable combat. "Manageable" applies both to the actions of the combatants and to the actual refereeing of such melees. Round (Also melee rounds) -A unit of time in AD&D equals to 1 minute. Each round is composed of 10 segments, and 10 rounds constitute a turn.

3. As for the posting frequency we will work that out I have ran play by post games where the busy players could only post 3 times a week and others where they could post once a day. I would like to myself have Mon-Fri posts figure no later than 5 pm est but I will try to work with the players.

4. My rules are simple post what you can, if you like to write posts with loads of detail fine, if you just want to post the basics so long as I and the others can understand great too.

Hey Dark, you mind if i play a gnome thief/illusionist? I really loved this race-class combo.

His name will be Tammany Beetleby, aka the beetle. If you agree, i will send you a complete background makeup of him in a week or so, including a pic. Let me know.

Wow, this is *almost* exactly what I've been looking for. I posted on rpg.net regarding wanting to play in an OD&D game. I'm not familiar with all the rulesets exactly, but their development in general. So, I'll need a suggestions on a newer "retro-clone" that is in the spirit of AD&D 1st edition, or a quick primer from someone more knowledgeable.

I'll post this over on my original thread, hopefully driving a few more interested parties over here. Could be fun!

I'd probably be interested in playing an elf (do they still get to change classes daily in AD&D1?), or maybe a human fighter.

Dark
12-24-2008, 01:54 PM
Yes they do and if you want to know the rules there is a free download http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/osric/downloads/OSRIC.pdf which is 99.9% identical to the first edition rules.

Thanks a lot! I have a hard time keeping all the editions and retro-clones straight, what with BFRPG, OSRIC, LL, S&W, etc. all covering "old editions" of the game.

I just downloaded the OSRICv2 rules the other day, so I'll browse that. I seem to remember skimming it and thinking it was much better organized than the first edition.

Count me in! I think I'll go ahead and stick with a fighting man, depending on how we roll ability scores.

Dark
12-24-2008, 05:27 PM
I tend to use Method IV:

3d6 are rolled sufficient times to generate the 6 ability scores, in order, for 12 characters, The player then selects the single set of scores which he or she finds most desirable and these scores are noted on the character record sheet.

Hello,

I think I would be interested in joining you. What do I need to do to get started?

Thisgame is for non-evil characters of levels from 1-3 ( level 3 fro single and a total of 3 for multi-classed) 3d6 are rolled sufficient times to generate the 6 ability scores, in order, for 12 characters.

The player then selects the single set of scores which he or she finds most desirable and these scores are noted on the character record sheet. The game is set in the World of Greyhawk campaign setting should you choose to play a cleric or druid for god purposes.

My vote goes to true 'old school.' Lets roll 3d6 for two characters, keeping the best set of 6. One of the enjoyments of sucess was when characters were marginal, at best.

My two coppers... but i will go with whatever the DM decided.

Play the halfling thief, Broadaxe. He sounds cool and there wont be any competition between us. Tammany, my Gnome, has actually just broken away from his thieving lifestyle due to a couple of reasons which has helped him see the proverbial light, one being that a terrible accident that has recently occurred forever scarring him. He's finding being an illusionist is suiting him well.

Done... I am really enjoying rolling the character up. It seems to be rolling itself. I am doing it all very random. The dice even rolled it female... but I'm not so sure I can do that. lol

I am working on a background history right now... I am very familiar with Realms but no so much Greyhawk. I am learning as much as I can right now.

I didn't even think about the thief conflict with your dude. Are you sure you don't mind? I am totally happy rolling whatever really.

No worries. Play Topknot, your halfling thief, for he sounds like an excellent edition to our party, for even though Tammany Beatley, aka 'The Beetle.' Gnome Thief/Illusionist extraordinaire, may have 1-2 levels in thief, he is now permanently on the illusionists path. He's finding it suits him well.

Tammany feels disrespected! ...for all Gnomes know that the art of illusion is the only true magick in the universe.

Addendum: have character rolled up. He will be the multiclassed badass that everyone expects him to be; which brings up a question: Since i have to combine experience points equally for both classes, what amount of experience should i begin with?

My delay on sending him in is due to an MBA assignment that ive been dealing with lately. Should have it done today.

Doubtful i'd use them but are you willing to allow these extra 1st edition classes into your game? http://www.dragonsfoot.org/fe/#FECC15 Be sure to click 'character classes.'

Do you want the rolls done on this site?

So when you say First Edt rules do you mean first edt AD&D or the redbox Basic set where the classes were fighter cleric magic user thief dwarf elf and halfling?

Dark
02-16-2009, 04:44 PM
No I mean 1st Edition AD&D not Basic. It was originally released over a three year span, one book a year. It was an audacious move on TSR's part: D&D itself had only been out for three years, and what had been a little-known company publishing minatures rules booklets was suddenly releasing a three-volume, hardcover set of rulebooks.

At the time, it was difficult to see exactly what AD&D was supposed to be. Original D&D needed to be rewritten and the rules tightened up, and there was a demand for more rules and more options. AD&D was at first seen as a supplement to D&D, much as Greyhawk had been. With the release of the Basic D&D set (which was a simple cleaning up the original rules plus Greyhawk packed into a single volume, with a small sample of monsters and only enough information to take players to third level), the D&D game was still considered a single whole: players would begin with Basic D&D, and then “graduate” to AD&D as a matter of course. It wasn't until AD&D was complete that TSR's plans were clear: that there were to be two independent D&D lines, with the games entirely separate. Basic D&D players were expected to continue to the Expert and Master D&D rules, and so on, while AD&D was supposed to be a somewhat different game.

Not only was AD&D separated from the original D&D line, but TSR took a new, hard line to the game. The rules were no longer simply guidelines, but were supposed to be as solid as any other game's. Gary Gygax came down hard on rules modifications. The Players Handbook requested that players not tamper with the character classes or other restrictions in the name of play balance. The Dungeon Masters Guide took a harder line against rule modification. But it was too late: Original D&D had already let the genie out of the bottle in encouraging players to make their own rules, and there was no going back. Gary Gygax's demands for standardization in the name of play balance were ignored, and the entire RPG industry has been forced to abide by this philosophy ever since.

Sadly, TSR could not resist taking pot shots at competitors in their rule books. Mike Carr's forward to the Monster Manual warned that many competitors' products were shoddy, and Gygax's preface to the Players Handbook made ugly attacks on spell point systems, “arbitrary restrictions on female characters,” and “ponderous combat systems,” a sad joke that couldn't be fully appreciated until the Dungeon Masters Guide came out.

Gygax later argued that AD&D's call for standardization was to ensure easy tournament play, with national standards. He also admitted that he didn't play canonical AD&D himself. The tournament standardization excuse seems unlikely, and if that was really their intention, then TSR botched the job from the very beginning in not making this clear. In spite of TSR's stated desires to have AD&D become a hard and fast rules system that everybody agreed on, by continuing with the D&D name, it could only be the baseline upon which all individuals based their own house rules. The apocalypse didn't come: AD&D remained the primary RPG for many years, and it was clearly recognized as a unified game, even if there were large differences from group to group. In spite of the mass tinkering with the rules by DMs world-wide, AD&D players had little trouble adjusting to tournaments.

The party began in Hochoch, a walled town located in the northwestern corner of the Kingdom of Keoland, just below the Dim Forest. Hochoch is located in hex N5/114. From there, they traveled to the village of Orlane, located in hex K5/113.

Dark... If you havent figured it out, as of yet, time constraints have pretty much eliminated any free time for me to play. To bad, too, for i really wanted to get involved in your campaign. Down the road when i have time to spare, i'll definitely contact you on current events.

Hey, sorry I haven't posted anything since Tomas offered his sword. Can I say he got lost wandering around the town?

It is a real village however small that is where it is located and Orlane itself was founded nearly a generation ago, when explorers from Hochoch reported that the land between the Rushmoors and the Dim Forest seemed to be extremely fertile.Soon after the arrival of the first farmers, a temple to the chaotic good goddess of agriculture, Merikka, was erected, and thus, the village of Orlane was born. The land here proved to be very rich, often producing crops half again as large as those grown in more mundane soil. Orlane quickly grew into a thriving community of 300 people.

The current date is Earthday Readying 20th, 563. Any other questions?

Hey.. new guy here, looking to join a good adventure. Got a spot for a newbie? And I noticed you're short of a mage, interested in a gray elf wizard with a tendency to be gleefully greedy for new spells and with a grown tolerance for other races?
I'll give you a Magic Weapon! :D

I'm real new to this btw and only have the online srd hypertext rulebook for reference (rulebooks in Malaysia cost a manhood) and memorizing If I don't make the cut its fine.. reading is almost as fun anyway.
