It has been a while since I have felt the muse. With settling into the new fall routine of kids activities and my general malaise as the weather turns in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, I just haven't had much to say with regards to fantasy roleplaying games.
However, something has happened to prompt me to make a new post. One of the original reasons for this blog was to document my attempts to find a new playing group. To that end, I have had postings up at various local gaming stores advertising my attempt to get a new "old school" group together. These postings have had an impact as a number of people contacted me over the past ~9 months. This has culminated in a group of people sitting around my basement this past wednesday evening generating characters. I have previously played with two of the players but three others were newcomers.
The ruleset we are using is 2nd edition AD&D. We went with this as most of the players had a preference for it because it is the system with which they have the most exposure. While it is not my favourite B/X, I still don't mind 2nd Edition.
