    I appreciate the offer. I'm not sure what the "power cards" are. I hate to see D&D stuff go to waste but I really don't know when I'll game again. Still, I have to pass. I guess I have enough "stuff". I've fallen in with a group that likes a lot of table top games. We played Zombicide Black...

    I was thinking you're name was familiar, you gave me some DM advice and encouragement back in 2008. I appreciate that! I had some great sessions with that little group. I did some gaming since that was more "theater of the mind". I guess I'm just not geared that way. My bent is more to the strategy...

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I like the roll-play vs. the role play which is why most people play D&D and similar games anyway. Combat does take a long time. I think WotC should've marketed it differently. I remember them advertising getting through 2 encounters an hour. It's more like 2 hours per...

What are you looking for?:
Looking for games that challenge the players (not the character sheets) in combat, role-playing, and puzzles. Not at all interested in D20. I enjoy character development in a story, but I also need the cerebral enjoyment of maneuvering through a cavern or solving a mystery. I am a GM, although I play just as often.
About Me
I've been playing since about 1987, and I've played most games that came out before and since then, until around 1998. Just a smattering of experience with more recent games, but I've not liked it. I haven't played regularly in years either due to lack of interest by other players or conflicting styles of play.

Night One: The Half-Orc Assassin

by Johnny Rook on 11-28-2010 at 12:36 PM
Played the first OSRIC/1e game last night on, #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

1e/OSRIC game

by Johnny Rook on 11-27-2010 at 05:00 PM
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 (

Come visit the irc network Darkmyst (
