What we're about

This group is dedicated to the Old School Renaissance and to keeping 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) alive and well, and to reliving the golden age of role-playing. Many of the group's members played AD&D in the 1980s (some in the 1970s), but no experience with 1st edition AD&D is necessary (or D&D at all), and players of all ages and experience are welcome.

In addition to our campaign games and one-shots, we have various special events, such as our annual summer tournament, which we've held the last three years. We hold the tournament the day of or the weekend immediately preceding Gary Gygax Day (July 27).

The Guild also has an annual convention dedicated to old-school RPGs called GrogCon, which is part of the Crucible Convention in the Orlando area. GrogCon 2019 took place October 11-13, 2019, and had more than 30 players. You can read a review of it here: http://gnolltrain.blogspot.com/2019/10/grogcon-2019-after-action-report.html . The next GrogCon will take place October 15-17, 2021. GrogCon has a Facebook page that can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/GrogCon-2213187365635929/

The Guild has a podcast called Grogtalk, which can be found on iTunes and Google Play! as well as using your browser - http://www.grogcon.com/podcast . The podcast is also on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTgDjmeyxpWPFALgN0Q4vlQ? . You can read reviews of the podcast here: https://chartable.com/podcasts/grogtalk-podcast

If you choose not to join us (perhaps choosing to adventure in the safer lands of later editions), we understand completely. First edition is not for the faint of heart. However, before leaving this site we encourage you to visit the Character Graveyard (https://www.meetup.com/Central-Florida-1st-Edition-AD-D-Grognards-Guild/pages/23808777/Character_Graveyard/), and pay your respects to those who braved the land of 1st edition, but did not return.

World of Greyhawk: 1E One-Shots

Needs a location

We stream our Discord game every Monday night from 7:30 PM - 11:30 PM EST on our Twitch channel, https://twitch.tv/perrenlandadventures.
Cameras are NOT required (in fact, the DM is the only one who does right now).

We are a 1E group who plays in the World of Greyhawk, jumping from adventure to adventure. We call it 1E One-Shots, but in reality it usually takes a few sessions to complete the chosen adventure. Currently, we are undertaking B2 - Keep on the Borderlands.

I'm seeking a pair of brave adventurers to join our merry band, but if you cannot play, feel free to drop in and check us out. We could especially use a thief type and another fighter or fighter/cleric to help with healing, so if you are interested, please let me know.

Regardless, we hope to see you all there!

New Beginnings & Old Rivalries

Needs a location

If you interested in joining our campain PLEASE message me via Meetup before joining and we can meet to prepare ahead of time.

Whats' a civilization suppose to do when the imminent thread has been defeated and everyone goes home? Why start squabbling among themselves of course!! Little do they know as they renew their petty arguments from the past that a new unforeseen danger is emerging...

This is an ongoing campaign broken into mini missions. We meet on Wednesday evenings 7PM -10:30 ET. We play first edition AD&D (1980's) online using Roll20. All new players start with new characters on par with the existing party. Note these are not one-shot games and prefer that players commit to complete the missions they start. See the rules link below for additional information about the game.

For Roll20 you will need a computer/Chromebook or iPad (Android may work as well) to run Roll20. A quiet place and a headphone with a mic is preferred. If you never used Roll20 we can arrange a time to create character sheets and a conduct a brief walkthrough how we use the application.

Rules can be found at:

THE ONE-SHOT GUILD

Needs a location

This will be a weekly event of unrelated, old-school, home-brewed, 1e AD&D one-shot adventures for those that miss or wish to experience the 80s feel of Dungeons & Dragons. No long-term commitment required like in campaigns, just show up and play when you are able. This will be an on-line event that is neither recorded nor streamed. We will be playing on Skype, so you will need a Skype account and you will also need to message me (preferably on Skype) so I can add you to the group chat (my Skype address is live:blarch). I will have pre-generated characters available for you to use if you so need. Come and join the fun.
