OD&D

  • Citigroup Center Public Lobby

If you want to play the original dungeons and dragons please join us. Looking for a few people to play basic/expert level adventures. If you loved the red and blue box sets then this event is for you. I have no problem DMing and can supply characters or you can bring your own. Lets suggest a time and date and look forward to having a great event.

    It's game on. I promised I'd restart this thread when had my family matter over.. I received good news today so lets start a campaign. Gm John, ill need your assistance, justin I know you were still interested and jhk feel free to give your input. First thing we need is at least a couple of people interested then I will start a new thread. I might have a friend or two interested so guys please get in touch some time in the day.

      DAMN, keep forgetting "enter" doesn't start a new paragraph here, it ends you post. Okay, SHIFT-enter now. So if you want to start a new event I'll link it. I believe you can leave out the date until we settle on one. I believe I've hooked up JHK with another OD&D game in town so he may not be checking Meetup much now either. :-) I'll email him though as soon as a new thread is going.

      I started a new thread I need at least a couple of members before its featured.

      October 30, 2013

  • JHK

    I know I'm jumping into this conversation very late but I would love it if you guys did another OD&D! I just stumbled on this meet up page, haven't played D&D in years but had the red box...please let me know if you have any future games!

    October 15, 2013

      There's no point in making another thread till you're ready. Just mention it in this thread and I'll make the link to it then.

    Guessing this isn't happening today

    October 6, 2013

    • Robert

      I also want to thank you for keeping this alive I will try to recruit some additional members but I hope the originals are still interested I know justin is as he responded I think maybe this time we should get enough members first then secure time and location everyone was eager to get this thing going in a week and that can happen with eight to ten members. If you have four as I said before only one cancellation can ruin an event but there are important circumstances in people's lives which sometimes take precedence

      October 11, 2013

    • GM J.

      When you do post a new thread to continue this, post a link to it here. I think everyone here is still getting email notices of posts the this thread so at least they'll know when there's a new one.

    • Robert

      Not this Sunday. But keep an eye out I would like to reschedule a future event and discuss with some members about their availability. I will try to post more details in the next couple of days.

      October 5, 2013

  • Robert

    I have to apologize I have a work conflict coming up this week and cannot attend the event. I feel bad but this is very important that I attend to. I will keep the group up and if anyone needs assistance please email me. I will see about any future events. I have to take care of this weekend.

      If Monica and Justin Lamb are interested, we can still get together to create characters. Thereby allowing the next meet up to begin with an adventure. Respond on here so I will know if the interest still is there in playing OD&D.

      Thats Fine.

    REL Oct. 1. In related news today, lemme jump in here to say happy birthday to Dave Arneson (original D&D co-creator with Gygax). That is all.

    October 1, 2013

  • GM J.

    I'll be out of town Oct 6th or I'd be giving this a shot. Not out of town often so I'll try for the next one.

    September 30, 2013

    I wanted to know what we are starting out with. If we are doing character rollups, that would be that Sunday session. I have the character player sheets. You can bring your own personal sheets if you feels more comfortable. It just has to be compatible with the OD&D rules. I have dice as well, if you want to bring your own that will be fine too. I need to know as well if we starting at entry level or more at expert level, that can determine what adventure we'll play. I have the gazetteers as well so we can make alternate characters too.

    September 27, 2013

    • Dungeonmaster

      It is entirely up to you although I would prefer starting at 1st level. Good way to build up a character's history from day one.

      September 28, 2013

  • Robert

    I wanted to update everyone. Just want to make sure that the posted date for this event is still acceptable for whoever rsvpd. Now that this is on the front page hopefully we can add some additional players once we have players confirmed we can discuss where to play which looks like the Citicorp building and if we are rolling for characters or playing an event that day.

    September 26, 2013

    • Robert

      Thanks for getting back. I will post up Citciorp Building as location. Dungeonmaster, have you been there before, I wanted to advise anyone who is bring anything like a laptop or Ipad to have it charged as there is no place to plug in. If you are familiar with the building please post some info about the set up. I went there earlier this month and it looks good and can accomadate a group of eight with the tables, but it's not like the game stores with the extra long size of the gaming tables.

      September 27, 2013

    • Dungeonmaster

      All I can tell you concerning the Citicorp building is they once had an Italian restaurant in the lower level that served lousy Manicotti. Not kidding... Really Lousy!

      September 28, 2013

  • Robert­ changed the location for this Meetup

    September 27, 2013

  • Robert

    This is a great start I know the way this works is chronological order of events taking place. After Saturday this will be on the front page for everyone to see. This date looks acceptable to everyone and we have some time. We can decide a location, Citicorp being one and please give me some feedback on that if you've been there or some other location there is a bother building just like it there that has a Starbucks inside with seating out of the store but in the building. People play chess there.

    September 19, 2013

  • Robert

    I've changed the date because it was obvious we got partial commitment. A couple of people that could not attend said they could if it were this date so could you RSVP if you're interested. By the way someone asked, it's still being held in nyc

    September 19, 2013

  • Robert­ changed the date and time from Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 3:00 PM to Sunday, October 06, 2013 at 3:00 PM

    September 19, 2013

  • Robert

    I wanted to make a suggestion that maybe we should postpone this for a weekend that could be more acommendating. We have two players who want to play but cannot make this weekend and another who cannot make next weekend. As I said before I'm pretty flexible with schedule but this is the reason I suggested first week of October due to scheduling conflicts and we could possibly have more people sign up in addition to having previous members RSVP and it also gives more time for planning. I would want to play this weekend but we would need commitments that are not there this weekend but could be there in the next two weeks.

    September 17, 2013

    • Dungeonmaster

      Will work with the scheduled date once it is finally decided upon.

      September 18, 2013

    • Robert

      Yes if that what Sunday lands on

      September 18, 2013

  • Justin H.

    Just joined, would definitely be up for early October. Love the basic rules, will bring my box!

    September 18, 2013

  • Matthew S.

    Sadly, cannot do this weekend, but interested in joining later...

    September 17, 2013

  • Robert

    Have we decided a date yet. As Monica mentioned before the weekend of sep 28-29 would not be good for her so I'm thinking either this Sunday the 22nd or the first weekend of oct which is the 6th and 7th. Sunday is only a few days away so if that's the day agreed upon let's get some confirmation or post it as a date for the meetup

    September 17, 2013

    • Robert

      Ok so I got confirmation from you and myself possibly Monica. Should it be safe to say we'll roll up characters this Sunday. Ill post the same time as well

      September 17, 2013

    • Robert

      Sure I guess we have to do this one step at a time to get everyone's schedule on the same page. I don't want to jump ahead but the week of October 7th looks like the next likely. But first to get one out of the way before its decided if its weekly, bi weekly or monthly dates.

      September 17, 2013

    Just to clarify since the description for this meetup is quite different from the original: are newbies welcome? I've never played but want to learn.

    September 16, 2013

    • Robert

      Thanks for getting this moving. If we do this Sunday maybe character roll ups might be priority. Just an idea

      September 16, 2013

    • Robert

      That's fine. I have character sheets and dice. The theme here seems to be roll ups on this meetup. I like the gazetteers it helps expand the skills and spell sets of the original seven classes.

      September 17, 2013

  • Robert

    Welcome aboard Matt

    September 16, 2013

  • Robert

    Absolutely, welcome and myself and dungeonmaster I'm sure will have no problem navigating you around
