Madison Traditional Gaming - February

Third Saturday of the month regular Meetup!

The monthly meetup is a chance to play vintage role-playing games, some of which you might not have played before. If you've never played Original D&D, AD&D 1st Edition, Classic Traveller, or similar games, here's your chance.

This month's featured games:

Opportunity’s Bait (or Disaster’s Opportunity) [Mongoose Traveller]:

In the far future, the Byzantium Sector is an isolated region of space cut off from the remaining sea of stars belonging to humanity.  The sector survives primarily through the rule of seven great noble houses all vying for power and control. 

Shadow Company is an elite military unit in service of the Devi branch of House Moskava on the planet Minerva. The Shadows have faithfully served Duke and Duchess Devi-Moskava since the unit’s creation and are their most successful team. 

The Moskavas have a new mission for the Shadows:  The Windsor personal preserve planet, Clarkson’s World, is in an unexpected period of upheaval on a global level.  Sudden shifts in the core have thrown the planet into chaos with a constantly changing magnetic field, earthquakes, volcanoes, and dangerous weather.  The sudden disaster on this scale caught House Windsor by surprise. Their rescue and relief efforts are in just as much chaos as the planet creating a perfect opportunity for House Moskava to make an intelligence mission to the privately owned planet.  And if Shadow Company is required, this is no run of the mill intel op...

The Temple of the Moon [Original D&D]:

Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. After the years when Conan wore the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow, Aquilonia's rival Zingara discovered a new world, west over the Western Ocean. Enshrouded in jungle and swamp, also possessed of a dead, ancient civilization, ripe for plunder. Join a tale from the days of high adventure!

Our regular schedule is:
9-9:30am - Gamers arrive; game session set-up; sign-in and socialize
9:30am - Game sessions begin
Lunch break (this is variable, depending on events)
After lunch - Game sessions continue; new games may start
5pm - Library closes
There are several restaurants within a short walk from the library - and then gaming until we're done.

Hope to see you there!
