I will update this event once I decide on a module to run.

    Hey so, my brother and I have been wanting to roll out the full on GDQ1-7 (with T1-4 and A1-4 preceding them), but we won't be able to make it that Saturday to meet everyone. Do you play 1st Edition often? Because it is hard to find people that do.
    So, in summary, we wish we could make it, but can't, BUT we are both really interested in getting some AD&D playing in with experienced players.

      Please arrive with (2) 3rd level characters. I can provide Pre-Gens if necessary. Players Handbook Classes and Races only please. Ill draft some background handout prior...(Can we post or link to docs on Meetup?)

      Same pre-gen rules as Jeremy. I like the video of die rolls if you are so inclined.

    Hope my inexperience doesn't hurt this too badly. I have played 3.t, but never the original.

      I doubt it will hurt. I'm not particularly experienced, I just know it's a lot of fun the times I have played.

      Louis you will be fine :) There's less rules and options then in 3e that's all. Piece of cake. :)

    Creating Your Own Characters

    Ok. If you want to create a character beforehand then I am ok with it if you follow these rules:

    1. You can use all the 1e books including Unearthed Arcana and Oriental Adventures.
    2. When rolling stats - Roll 4d6, keep 3 of the dice and discard 1 of them. Make your six stat rolls then afterword you assign your roll to whichever stat you want (STR, DEX, whatever). No re-rolling. One caveat, if you show up with a character with questionable stats (no stats below 15 or an Elf with 19 DEX) I reserve the right to possibly make you re-roll before we start.
    3. Start your character at level 3.
    4. Max Hit Points.
    5. Roll for starting money. You can purchase any standard equipment.
    6. Spells for any spellbooks, I will provide.

    Alternatively, I will bring pre-generated characters for anyone that needs/prefers to go that route.

      Perfect! I will bring the Drow Fighter/Magic User as my primary. I have a human Ranger and a Halfling Fighter Thief as backups......

    Slog. Verb work hard over a period of time. Noun a spell if difficult, tiring work. Or travel. To toil.

    Id love to do the whole T/A/GDQ arc in 1st ed. >sigh< someday.
    halfway thru it in 3.5 what a slog!

      What does "slog" mean?

    I regret that I have a big busy day that day doing other stuff (the Letter Carriers' food drive, so put some cans our for the mailman to pick up!), but this looks like a good time at the game table!

    Pre gen or bring a PC?

      Let me think about it as I look thru my modules. It's always fun to roll up characters but it can also be time consuming.
