"Civilization in the Northlands has fallen. You are among the dozens of refugees from the south seeking the treasures and mysteries amid the ruins."
The Expeditions in the Northlands is a "West Marches-style" campaign for both beginners and veterans using Swords & Wizardry rules as the basic template. In reality, you don't even need those rules to play, handouts will be provided, since stuff from all editions of D&D will be mixed into this homebrew campaign.
I'm even using the "character funneling system" from Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG." You can check it out here:
The first two venues are scheduled at Treefort Games down in Fayetteville for May 5 and 19, though I plan on running games elsewhere.
So if you're looking to play in a rules-light and old school version/retroclone of D&D, this game is for you.
