I prefer AD&D. I like being challenged, but not all sudden death to the player all the time. ;-) I like to challenge players as a DM, and would like a mix of new and experienced players. I like to play where the GM lays out the parameters of the campaign, and lets the players choose which bait to take.
About Me
Started with D&D Blue Box in 1977/78, then AD&D. Gamma World, Metamorphsis Alpha, Boot Hill, and others. Been away from gaming for a long time, but dusting off old notes and updating custom setting, after playing in my brother's campaign over Memorial Day 2009.
Had a long break from work and finally fired up my campaign with my sons and having a lot of fun watching them "poke the hornet's nest", so to speak. Ready to take the plunge and invite others for a larger group of players, or alternate time.

Marmalade Dog Follow Up

by Fasbold on 02-15-2015 at 10:20 AM
I had a blast at Marmalade Dog last weekend, February 6-8, 2015 at WMU in Kalamazoo.

I learned that there is an active group of AD&D players just outside the village where I live in south central Kalamazoo County, MI. They played in my Sunday session of AD&D with The Village of Hommlet.

I played in my first session of DCC on Friday night, when no one signed up for my Hommlet session. It was a load of fun.

Saturday a bunch of other GMs signed up for

ACKS vs. D&D

by Fasbold on 09-01-2012 at 02:03 AM
I supported the ACKS (Adventurer, Conquerer, King) Kickstarter because it sounded like the kind of thing I always wanted the games I played in to be.

I have not read my softcover rules, but have had them set aside in a safe place until time and circumstances permit reading them.

I have done some review of the PDF form of the rules and followed some of the online discussion on the website.

I'm not into multiple gaming systems like when I was younger. I don't

I Did It Now

by Fasbold on 09-01-2012 at 01:51 AM
Well, I have been gaming heavily with my sons and we are having a blast. I took the plunge and advertised that I am looking for more players for my campaign. Once I am more in the flow of running a game with more players, I may take a chance on running an online game.

Taking the Plunge

by Fasbold on 12-01-2010 at 09:59 PM
Well, I want to play. This is coming up to my busiest time of year for work. I am trying to sell my house to move back to where my siblings and their families live, and we grew up, nearly 600 miles from here. I will have lots of opportunity to play as player or GM once I move. I plan to play with my sons over Christmas break. If anyone lives near Kalamazoo and wants to play AD&D or Old School/clones, let me know.
