Re: Gary Con XI

That was a great one! Thanks! Much appreciated. 8-) My only problem now is keeping myself from buying all that Harn material. I didn't realize just how much stuff is out there. Lots of great material available for Harn! When I decided to give the setting a try I just picked one of the kingdoms, Orb...

Hey Ancalagon! I'm locked in on your Thursday session really looking forward to that one. Excellent! Please introduce yourself when you reach the table.

Re: Cleveland CON March 1-3 and Origins in June

I won't be at either of those cons. However, I do like the idea of the Trolls having a game den for only C&C. I pitched that idea back around 2011+/-.

Were all gold badge members here able to register for the events they wanted?

I had a few hiccups (communication errors) with the interface but after 3 attempts it worked and I snagged my event tickets.

I'm planning to run White Plume Mountain using Dungeon World this year. Would there be interest in me running it with Castles & Crusades on Saturday morning? The adventure is a classic, so I suspect most people have read or played it by now, but maybe folks would be interested. C&C with White Plume...

Re: Best ON SCREEN dragon.

Also going to vote for Vermithrax of Dragonslayer fame. Just re-watched it, and the special effects still hold up. For being silent, the dragon still come across as cruel and malicious.

Re: Nuke-Con: Castles & Crusades in Hârn

When I was running AD&D at Dragon Con in Atlanta from 2003 to 2009, before it fully morphed into a dress up & pop culture convention, I had a fair number of players showing up year after year for my events. It was always nice to see the folks returning for the old school gaming goodness!

Re: Nuke-Con: Castles & Crusades in Hârn

Hoping so! 5E and PF are, by far, the most played tabletop RPGs in my neck of the woods so if I can introduce some folks to C&C, and they get into it, then it will have been a great success. 8-)

Nuke-Con: Castles & Crusades in Hârn

I decided to take the plunge and run Castles & Crusades in Hârn at Nuke-Con, a small con in Omaha NE, in early October. My adventure will be based in the Kingdom of Orbaal, a fractious kingdom in Hârn's wild north. Pregens will be provided and are 4th - 5th level, one of which will be the Archer fro...

Re: Knights of the Crusade

I would like to see C&C be more popular. I really feel it's a good game. Agreed. I've introduced at least 15 people to it with conventions, etc. Truly just like D&D was spread with playing games and word of mouth. I recently introduced my gaming group (7 players though rarely all present at once) t...

I booked my room months ago. Not sure if I'll be running anything this year. Work has been intense this year. I don't think I've gamed live since Gary Con in March, actually.
