This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Test #2 was successful! So  now we just need more players. Anyone else want to play AD&D 1e?

On Sundays, 1PM EST. Just need Skype (free), your web browser, and some headphones and a microphone. Alternately I can dial your phone. But come on, get a headset.

See you all on Sunday!

Can´t find ENworld or DF-threads. Did you advertise there too?

I have a DF-account (they sare pretty selective with whom they admit!), so I could help out.

OK, so I goofed up using Invisible Castles.

The first roll I did, I did not do as stats - just as six rolls of 4d6.takeHighest(3) - and, as you can see, those rolls were stellar.

Then I noticed there was a roll stat thing, and I tried that. The results were not nearly as good. But I don't usually play thieves, and certainly not sniveling little weaklings...

STR 6, DEX 15, CON 16, INT 12, WIS 10, CHA 11

We'll give it a shot...

Well, you certainly qualify for other classes! and thieves are cool too.

Remember, this is AD&D1e, and Method I says "All scores are recorded and arranged in the order the player desires. 4d6 are rolled, and the lowest die (or one of the lower) is discarded."

See? Not so far off from D20, after all. ;) if you threw that 16 into Intelligence, and rearranged the others for taste, you could qualify for Illusionist!

Do you need a copy of the AD&D 1e PHB?

Uhhh...no...I've got 3... :haw:

Nope - I'm going, as the site said, "Iron-Man"!

I'll take them in order and play the living hell out of them. I can already see him - a bit like The Mouse.

This just in:

I'm finishing up the level keys, and I've concluded that (in true old-school style) we will need to round out a party with multiple characters; possibly hirelings, men at arms, or secondary characters.

Yes, even at level 1.

Feel free to roll up a second character!

I'm interested and would be willing to run two characters.
