I just launched The ComeBack Inn, a Blackmoor introduction game on http://www.rpol.net
I run last game on line long time ago... let's see what will happen this time.


I've registered at the site, but cannot find the game :/

Is it over already?

Schenectady Wargamers' annual Council of Five Nations con is this weekend - about 350 conventioners attending. I ran Ran Blackmoor dungeon with OD&D and pregens of characters created by Svenson, Megarry, Nicholson, and Joe Vale. Had nine players and had to turn away a half dozen more.

Had a great time! None of the players had ever experienced OD&D before though there were a couple who had played BECMI and AD&D. They found the entrance in the gate tower and explored down to the third level. Killed orcs, spiders, and found the bodies in room 3. Ran from diseased bats in the basement. They managed to avoid some of the nastier encounters and only suffered one casualty. Great group of players. The con ends today. :(

I am trying to figure out how that site works! :)

If it is simple enough for me to navigate it, for sure everybody else can do it. :roll:


PS/BTW in the same platform there is a very long running Adventures in Blackmoor game.

Havard, somehow I missed it this year. So no special get-together. However, now that I have had this reminder:

The [url="http://composedreamgames.com/marketplace"]Compose Dream Games Marketplace[/url] is happy to offer a 20% discount today and tomorrow for Dave Arneson game day. Just use the coupon code "Arneson"

Thanks Dave, for being the genesis of our hobby.
