Re: Pregen's of 3rd to 4th lvl Needed

I have a bunch of level 3 and 4 pre-gens we made for GenCon a ways back, originally designed for Lure of Delusion (so right after the changes to Barbarian and new Illusionist came out). Feel free to PM me if you want to arrange an email.

I understand where you're at - once upon a time 'twas I who held that mantle back at the start, and it's a task and a half for those who undertake it. Just FYI you have my thanks personally for keeping it alive and going. I truly wish I could come back and help more, but the most I can even imagine ...

Have two tickets for Tyler's Sat. 6:00 Pot of Broken Bones and Halfling Broth C&C game that we won't be using (don't worry Tyler, we're in your Fri. nite game) - before I send a cancel is there anyone who would want them and I can just hand off and they be guaranteed to get them?

Re: Who's running games at Gary Con VIII

Since we are coming just Friday, Saturday & Sunday, and looking forward to trying to play in other games, I have submitted (and think it's been approved by the afore-mentioned green check mark) just one game I will run this year, a Sat. afternoon Noon-4 C&C game entitled "The Death Knight Rises."

Re: GAZ1 The Grand Duchy of Karameikos

Have decided, in the spirit of GAZ 1 and the B/X D&D flavor, that starting alignments will only be from the 3 choices of "lawful," "neutral," or "chaotic." Good & evil to be much more blurred, should make things interesting for potential Paladins and Clerics....

Without relating too many details (other than I was tempted to shove what I held briefly in my hands at GaryCon into my coat and run for the bar door) - the Codex is definitely getting VERY close.
