Played the first OSRIC/1e game last night on irc.darkmyst.org, #WestgateAdventures_OOC (open call for players) and it went pretty well, considering only one player signed up so far. The game was impromptu, but it was dictated pretty well by player desires and random background generation. The game is going to be low plot, letting players dictate speed and style of play. There will be dungeons to explore and stories to tell, but these will be on a game-by-game basis with no railroading or metaplot
Tonight, around 8pm central, I'll be running an OSRIC/1e game online. For those not in the know, OSRIC stands for Old School Reference and Index Compilation. It's intent is to provide a basis for AD&D 1e games so that enterprising individuals can write, share, and sell AD&D games and products. Well, I'm one of those individuals, and I'm doing some demo/playtesting tonight for Johnny Rook Games (http://www.johnnyrookgames.com).

I am starting up another campaign soon. I may be a little crazy for trying to run two games simulateously and "assist-DM" in a third, but I just couldn't resist when my buddy asked me to run a game for a group he was putting together.

Due to confusion with the HERO system and players dropping from the lineup, we recruited some noobies, went over the mechanics of HERO, and started the new guys on their characters.
So no more drunken viera and no more lucky moogle.
Still have our al-bhed techie.

so... Things are on their way. Characters have been created (for the most part), and now I am getting the first adventure underway.
Decided on FF7 as the main storyline, but some elements from other games (like FF8). I will post a log of what happened, who did what, etc... along with details on monsters I make. I won't post these till AFTER the heroes have battled them (in case they read this blog).
I hope you enjoy though.
But the story will start
